To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

Cosmetic Dentistry
Prescott Valley, AZ

Young woman smiling after her cosmetic dentistry treatment at Bradshaw Family Dental.In many situations, it is hard to determine which type of specialist would best suit your needs. There are dozens of specialties in the field of dental health.

General dentists are typically the ones who perform cleanings and exams and work on preventing tooth decay and periodontal disease. While they serve an important function, they are not focused on making the finished work blend in so it remains unnoticed, like our experts do.

While a cosmetic dentist is also concerned with preventative dentistry, they are also worried about the way the work appears. They would not choose a metal filling which can be noticed easily when a ceramic filling tinted to the tooth's natural color would remain unnoticed. They not only want to prevent disease and decay from setting in but also to make the tooth look great.

Patients who are confused about which type of dentist would best suit their needs should come to see us at our office and talk to our dentists about their needs. The Bradshaw Family Dental team are eagerly awaiting your call. Contact us today to find out more.

Cosmetic Needs of the Patient

Everyone ages and everyone's bodies go through changes as we get older. What we worried about when we were younger is different than what we worry about now.

Our oral cavities go through the same changes. Our teeth and gums are not the same as they were when we were children. If we are coffee or tea drinkers, those beverages can greatly impact our teeth over the years. They can become stained or discolored because the enamel has drawn in the tea and coffee. A cosmetic dentist would recommend teeth whitening for those patients. If there is a small gap between the patient’s front teeth because their teeth have slowly shifted from the ideal placement, a cosmetic dentist would recommend a bonding process.

While procedures like these are preventative to some degree—closing the gap would decrease the chances of food-collecting there, which could lead to decay—they are performed more so for their cosmetic enhancement.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

While a cosmetic dentist has the same education, training, and qualifications as a general dentist, they also have additional training which offers them a heightened level of knowledge and skills above and beyond that of a general dentist.

This additional knowledge provides a better understanding of what will look best when placed in the patient’s mouth. Obviously, cosmetic dentistry is concerned about maintaining a high-level of oral hygiene, but they stress the importance of aesthetically pleasing dental work.

Teeth Whitening

A patient may look at their teeth and feel like their smile is no longer as bright as it once was. This can happen over time. As we get older, enamel becomes more porous, making teeth easier to stain. Drinking certain beverages, like coffee or tea, or even smoking can lead to discoloration and stains. Patients want to do something that will brighten and restore their smile.

The teeth whitening process does not take long at all to complete. In most cases, the entire length of time in the office is less than an hour. The patient will leave the office with noticeably whiter teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers that are made of porcelain are reshaped and colored to fit perfectly over the front of the patient’s teeth so they can blend in to remain unnoticed. These types of veneers improve the look and color of a patient’s teeth.

It does not matter if it is a single tooth or a series of teeth, a veneer can be used to correct the problems the patient is facing. Restoring teeth to a shiny luster, veneers are a great tool. Held in place by an adhesive, they can be placed in only two appointments.

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is where your preferred cosmetic dentist will restore your gums by taking tissue that is synthetic, or use your tissue, and replace the areas in the gums where your gum tissue is receding. There are multiple kinds of gum grafts available; many patients do not realize there is more than one option to fit their needs.

A free gingival graft harvests tissue from the patient’s roof of their mouth, placing it on the section which needs treatment. This graft not only helps to close down the pockets, but it also jumpstarts new tissue growth.

Another type of graft is known as the connective tissue graft. Taking the grafted tissue from the top layer of the gums, this tissue is then applied to the section of gums in need of help. This one is the most frequently used type of graft.

An additional type of graft which is considered highly effective is known as a pedicle graft. The reason it is so effective is the blood flow is not stopped during the grafting procedure. The gum is cut and then simply folded over the decayed area and secured in place so it can treat the diseased area of the gum.

Crown Lengthening

Sometimes patients have excess gum tissue that covers up a significant amount of the teeth. Crown lengthening is where a cosmetic dentist will remove the excess gum tissue to show more of the tooth surface. Also, this procedure is used to reshape the size and height of the tooth as well.

Composite Dental Bonding

Composite dental bonding refers to using any material like plastic or resin to improve a patient’s tooth. Some of the uses of composite dental bonding can be when a tooth is cracked, chipped, stained in a darker color due to oral habits, or to close gaps in the teeth.

Composite bonding depending on how well a patient takes care of their oral health, can last upwards of five years. To extend the longevity of the composite, it is recommended that a patient brush and floss twice a day and regularly see the dentist.
