Dr. Shawn Sadri Cosmetic & General Dentistry

TREATMENTS

Veneers

Porcelain dental veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are placed over a damaged, misaligned, or stained teeth. It conceals cosmetic issues and creates a new appearance. They are one of the most effective and aesthetically gratifying remedies for teeth that are chipped, cracked, gapped, stained, misshaped, or even misaligned—often being incorporated in smile makeovers to create gorgeous smile transformations.

Renowned cosmetic dentist Dr. Shawn Sadri can correct a range of dental issues with porcelain veneers and achieve a natural-looking solution to common problems affecting the appearance and function of your teeth.

During the consultation, Dr. Sadri will review your personal cosmetic goals and recommend a treatment plan that can address your needs. With our innovative 3D imaging technology, each patient can view a dynamic digital image of their teeth and gums, allowing a comprehensive understanding of the treatment approach. This technology also facilitates doctor-patient communication and can ultimately lead to well-informed treatment decisions and a more satisfying final outcome.

Invisalign®

Designed as an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign® can inconspicuously straighten crooked and unevenly spaced teeth. Invisalign eliminates bulky metal brackets and wires by using a system of clear plastic aligners instead. Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit the patient’s teeth comfortably while gently guiding the teeth into their ideal position.

Dr. Shawn Sadri recommends Invisalign for patients who want to discreetly improve the appearance of their smile and the function of their bite.

The Invisalign system uses a custom-made series of clear plastic aligners that are comfortable and virtually unnoticeable when worn. Since these plastic aligners are also removable, patients can still clean their teeth with ease and eat without dietary restrictions.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth can become stained or discolored by certain foods and beverages, tobacco products, or because of the natural aging process. Brightening the shade of your teeth can be one of the fastest ways to significantly improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence.

With Zoom!® teeth whitening, Dr. Shawn Sadri can lighten the color of your teeth up to eight shades with just one in-office treatment. Zoom! Teeth whitening offers professional-strength bleaching. You can see the results immediately.

Custom Teeth Whitening Trays

A custom-fit teeth whitening tray expertly crafted by Dr. Shawn Sadri is another optimal approach to beautifying stained or discolored teeth. Dr. Sadri will take the time necessary to build a fully customized teeth whitening tray for your unique mouth.

It is quite the contrast to the one-size-fits-all products available over-the-counter. Dr. Sadri will demonstrate how exactly your personalized teeth whitening tray with the gel should be applied to your teeth.

Porcelain Crowns & Onlays

A severely damaged or decayed tooth may create cosmetic imperfections, become a source of sensitivity, or lead to significant pain. Porcelain crowns and onlays are designed to reinforce and restore the structural integrity of a tooth while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. With this procedure, Dr. Shawn Sadri can often prevent the need for a tooth extraction.

When a root canal is necessary to improve the health of the tooth, a porcelain crown can be used to strengthen the tooth structure, while also rejuvenating its appearance. A porcelain crown or onlay may be the ideal solution for patients who seek to restore both the function and aesthetics of a damaged or decayed tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a fixed, long-term tooth replacement option that combines an implanted titanium post with an attached restoration to recreate a complete, functional tooth. Among dental restoration options, dental implants are considered to be the most natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.

Whether tooth loss was caused by decay, injury, gum disease, oral defects, or other issues, dental implants can provide durable replacement teeth. Unlike removable tooth replacement options, dental implants can deliver unparalleled security and stability, which reduces the risk of gum irritation and eliminates slipping.

A full smile achieved with dental implants can improve the quality of life and self-confidence when smiling, talking, chewing, and speaking. For optimal results, all dental implants are highly customized according to the specific needs of each patient and designed to fuse permanently with the jaw bone.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Composite fillings, also known as white, plastic, or tooth-colored fillings, use a tooth-colored resin made up of powdered glass and plastic resin to fill in cavities, which gives the filling a natural appearance and enables it to blend with the surrounding tooth structure.

Cosmetic Bonding

Dental bonding is the application of a strong, natural-looking resin onto the surface of damaged teeth. The bonding materials act as a replacement for missing enamel and dentin, providing durable protection and enhancement for your teeth. Dr. Shawn Sadri matches the composite resin to the rest of your teeth to seamlessly blend in and cover any imperfections.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth, and save the natural tooth. When one undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed to perfection.

Extractions

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. In many cases, teeth that are broken or damaged by decay can be fixed with a filling, crown, or other dental treatment. Sometimes, though, the damage is too severe to repair, and extraction is necessary.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.

If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection, or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it removed.

Nightguards for Bruxism

A night guard is a transparent, thin device you wear over the biting surface of your teeth when sleeping. It prevents your top and bottom teeth from touching.

Nightguard shields and cushions the teeth from excessive wear and helps re-establish the natural space between the upper and lower teeth.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

If your smile isn’t exactly what you want it to be, due to extensive cosmetic and functional dental issues, then a full-mouth restoration may be the answer for you.

Full mouth restoration is a process in which Dr. Sadri will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that combines multiple procedures to restore the health and appearance of your teeth and gums, not to mention, a beautiful new smile.

Gum Lift / Gum Recontouring

Reshaping the gums, also known as a gum lift, is a cosmetic procedure that is most often used to balance the proportion of the teeth and gums for a more symmetric, harmonious appearance. Excess gum tissue sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile,” can shorten the appearance of your teeth and impact the proportions of your smile. By recontouring gum tissue with state-of-the-art laser technology, Dr. Sadri can both minimize your recovery time and improve balance and symmetry between the teeth and gums. Also, since there is virtually zero discomfort, typically associated with laser gum contouring, patients are often able to return to their normal daily activities almost immediately.

Teeth Cleaning & Periodontal Gum Care

Dr. Shawn Sadri will examine your teeth and gums at every dental evaluation. If any signs of gingivitis or gum disease are seen, he may recommend preventive care steps, so the condition does not worsen. If signs of advanced periodontal disease are present, Dr. Sadri can create a personalized treatment plan for you.

One of the most common dental conditions, experienced by millions of Americans, is gum disease. Periodontal (gum) care at our dental practice can not only save you from severe dental damage and tooth loss. It may even help reduce the risk of developing general health problems that can be attributed to gum disease.

Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Shawn Sadri offers sedation (sleep) dentistry to relieve you of your dental anxiety and make your procedure virtually painless. The time you spend with us can be comfortable, relaxing, and even pleasant! Our sedation dentistry is an essential component of our top-of-the-line services because it ensures the most enjoyable procedure for you.

If you avoid your regular dental visits because of the discomfort, you feel while in the dentist’s chair, sedation dentistry is probably the right choice for you. Combining safe medical sedation techniques with a tranquil, relaxing office setting puts all our patients at ease.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is inhaled through the nose and can place you in a deeply relaxed state. Though you can still communicate with Dr. Sadri during the procedure, many patients drift off into a light sleep.

This method of sedation begins to take effect in less than a minute, and in most cases, the effects wear off very quickly. Most patients can drive themselves home after treatment with nitrous oxide.

Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Conscious sedation dentistry is a way of putting you in a state of extreme relaxation without IV sedation. The conscious sedation process involves taking a small pill about one hour before your appointment with Dr. Sadri. You will already be feeling very drowsy by the time you arrive at our office, so you will need someone to drive you.

You will not be completely asleep during your treatment, and you will be able to communicate with Dr. Sadri at all times. Conscious sedation only mimics sleep by putting you in an intensely relaxed state. During your treatment, your vital signs will be monitored continuously. After the procedure, you will likely not even remember the procedure taking place.

IV Sedation

For patients suffering from severe dental anxiety, intravenous (IV) sedation can be an effective solution. With IV sedation, you are put to sleep by an experienced anesthesiologist, allowing Dr. Sadri to perform more complex dental procedures.

During the procedure, you will be unconscious and have no memory of your dental work after you wake. An anesthesiologist will closely monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure and adhere to the highest safety standards.

When you wake up from IV sedation, a lingering feeling of grogginess is common. All patients who undergo IV sedation should arrange for transportation home from their appointment.
