Dental Implants Your Smile Deserves a Second Chance

Restore function and aesthetics to your smile with dental implants. In addition to correcting missing teeth with custom implant-supported restorations, implants improve your oral health by preventing bone recession. 

Thanks to advancements in dentistry and our state-of-the-art techniques, more patients than ever can qualify for implants. We happily accept financing through LendingClub® and CareCredit® to help you manage out-of-pocket costs.

Our implant posts are made of a material used by NASA.
Titanium alloys are lighter and stronger than steel, helping to ensure a long-lasting solution.

Optimized Dental Implant Treatment

The team at Sharp Smile Center provides comfortable, precise, and successful dental implant treatment. We are backed by:

Impressive Experience

Dental implants have extremely high success rates when they are precisely placed by a skilled dentist. Dr. Sharp has extensive experience providing this life-changing treatment and has placed more than 1,000 implants with a 98% success rate.

Advanced Techniques

Dr. Sharp uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and plasma-rich fibrin (PRF) to reduce pain and expedite recovery after surgery. He separates concentrated growth factors from a small sample of your blood and inserts them into the surgical site, stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing complications.

State-of-the-Art Technology

We also use piezoelectric (ultrasonic) technology to enhance implant success. This minimally invasive technique uses ultrasonic vibrations to minimize soft tissue damage during bone grafts. Dr. Sharp also uses dental lasers that sterilize the surgical site and hasten recovery.

Faster Results

“Sharp Smile-in-a-Day” is a restorative treatment similar to the widely popular All-on-4® dental implants. You can have your remaining natural teeth extracted, implants placed, and a transitional denture attached, all in the same visit. That way, you'll never have to go without teeth.

Our dentist, Dr. Sharp, has placed more than 1,000 implants with a 98% success rate! ​We carefully plan each treatment to minimize complications.

We Ensure Your Comfort With Sedation Dentistry 

Many patients struggle with anxiety at the dentist's office. Dr. Sharp explains why sedation truly helps.

Can Sedation Help Me?

Dr. Coulibaly and young patient doing IV sedation

Sedation helps many people overcome the obstacles standing in the way of a healthy, beautiful smile. You may be a candidate for oral conscious sedation if:

  • You experience a sense of dread before your visits
  • You need an extensive amount of dental work
  • You struggle to stay still
  • You have trouble getting numb from the local anesthetic
  • You have a sensitive gag reflex
  • You've had traumatic dental experiences in the past

Ask our dentist if sedation is right for you.
