"I love this place!" 5-Star Reviews
I have not been to the Dentist in a VERY long time. I went to Desert a Spring’s for a check up and cleaning and was prepared for a lecture about going to the dentist. Let me say, I Love this place! Dr. Yazmin and her two Techs were amazing! I never got the lecture, I do have to have work done but I’m not nervous at all about doing it and I will stay on top of visits going forward! Thank you for making this so easy!!!
I had not been to the dentist in over 5 years. Like a lot of people, going to the dentist is uncomfortable for me. Desert Springs and their hygienist Chrisse made me super comfortable and made sure that I didn’t have any pain. I can say that my mouth feels 100% better since my cleaning and they made sure I would be back for my next cleaning. If you are someone who is apprehensive about the dentist, this is the place to go. No judgement, just great care. Thank you so much!View On Google

If stains, cracks, or chips are compromising your smile, Lumineers can transform your appearance with little to no preparation. These ultra-thin porcelain veneers cover the outer surfaces of teeth to conceal imperfections. While traditional veneers require a dentist to remove a layer of enamel to ensure a proper fit, Lumineers require little or no reduction of your natural tooth. As a result, this treatment is entirely reversible. For the right candidates, Lumineers are an efficient and minimally invasive way to achieve a stunning smile. Our Tucson, AZ, practice can determine if Lumineers are right for you.
Dramatically transform your smile with professional-strength teeth whitening. Our dentists can address nearly all types of staining with this cosmetic dentistry treatment. In just one visit to our dentistry practice, you can achieve a noticeable enhancement. The results that a single treatment at our Tucson dental office can achieve are far superior to what over-the-counter products can do. During a consultation, our team can determine if teeth whitening is the best way to illuminate your smile.
If decay or trauma has left your tooth in a state that cannot be repaired with a filling, a dental crown can restore form and function to your smile. Our dentists can place a crown over the affected tooth to protect it from further damage. This not only restores strength to the tooth but also gives it a natural and healthy appearance. At our dental practice in Tucson, AZ, we use crowns that are made of state-of-the-art ceramics designed to withstand daily use. High-quality materials can match the shade of your surrounding teeth so that others notice your beautiful smile, not your dental work.
A dental bridge is a custom restoration that provides lasting comfort by replacing one to three consecutive teeth. Our team of dental professionals in Tucson, AZ, will work to provide a dental bridge that restores balance and function to your smile. A dental bridge offers immediately restored chewing function and a better-looking smile while preventing your surrounding teeth from shifting. Our dentists can create a bridge that will compliment your facial features, allow you to chew and speak properly, and support your oral and overall health.
Dental Implant Restorations
A gap in your smile can be embarrassing and painful. It can also have a significant impact on your oral health. The roots of a tooth do more than hold the tooth in place - they also help maintain the health of your jaw. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone will begin to atrophy (shrink and change shape). As bone loss continues, the surrounding teeth will begin to shift. This can cause your face to look sunken and aged. The titanium posts work like tooth roots to stimulate the jawbone, effectively stopping further bone loss. They also provide a supremely stable anchor for crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Even patients with the best at-home dental care can be affected by periodontal issues. While brushing twice daily, flossing once a day, and rinsing with mouthwash are good ways to help minimize your risk of developing gum disease, factors such as age, smoking, diet, and genetics can increase your risk of developing periodontal issues. At Desert Springs Family Dentistry in Tucson, AZ, we offer periodontal work to support the health of your gums. Healthy gums benefit both your oral health and overall health. Our dentists are committed to providing the treatments necessary to keep the foundation of your smile healthy.
"I have had my new teeth for about 5 months. I LOVE them! I am a smiling fool now! lol. I have gone back there for a cleaning and X-rays as well... and everyone is so nice and patient. I had a custom fit mouth guard made, as I grind my teeth at night. It is the best mouthguard I have ever had. I lost my dental insurance, but I will save up for my 6 month cleaning and such. THAT is how amazing they are!" Holly S., 5-Star Review
