We make it a priority to offer the best technology in the dental industry for our patients’ dental options. Our technologies include CAD/CAM, T-Scan, Invisalign, and more.
We also proudly utilize the latest dental lasers for quick, minimal-discomfort treatment. Procedures that can be performed with dental lasers include crown lengthening, gum contouring, frenectomies (the tissue tag that holds the tongue and lips), removal of soft tissue folds, removal of dead tissue during gum therapy, disinfecting pockets for patients with gum disease and infection, removal of benign tumors, and treatment for cold sores and canker sores.
Smiles for Life
Sharp Smile Center has joined with the 2016 Crown Council Smiles for Life Campaign to generate funding for seriously ill, disabled, and disadvantaged kids. From March 1 to June 30, all of the proceeds from our teeth whitening procedures will be contributed directly to Bronson Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). As an additional incentive, each tooth whitening patient can enjoy their smile brightening procedure at a discounted rate. Read More.

Restore function and aesthetics to your smile with dental implants.
Our technology really shines in our implant and restorative dentistry. Dental implants have an extremely high success rate when they are optimally placed by a skilled dentist, and this is a crucial distinction. Dr. Sharp not only has extensive experience and training in providing this life-changing treatment, but he has invested in a suite of advanced technology to maximize the predictability and success of your dental implants. For example, he uses a state-of-the-art surgical technique that employs biologics to help reduce pain and make your bone and gums heal faster and stronger with fewer complications. This simple process involves drawing some blood from your arm and concentrating natural growth factors made from your own immune system. It is an inexpensive way to add concentrated growth factors, stem cells and molecular enhancers (platelet rich plasma, platelet rich fibrin, platelet derived growth factor, and bone morphogenic protein) which are wonderful enhancers of dental implant bone grafts. Piezoelectric technology is another way he can enhance implant success. This minimally invasive technique uses piezoelectric (ultrasonic) vibrations to precisely cut bone tissue while leaving the surrounding soft tissue untouched. It allows him to safely access and graft the area next to the sinuses with minimum trauma to maximize bone preservation. Dr. Sharp also uses a laser to uncover dental implants from gum tissue once they have fused with the jawbone. The laser method is less traumatic than cutting the gum tissue to expose the implants, and it simultaneously cauterizes and sterilizes the area to aid healing.
“Sharp Smile-in-a-Day” is a type of dental implant treatment that lets patients walk out of our office with dental implants and natural-looking teeth. There is no waiting period when you will be without your teeth. This treatment is synonymous with techniques advertised as “All-On-Four” implant-supported replacement teeth. Patients can have their remaining natural teeth extracted, implants placed, and a transitional denture affixed to the new implants in the same visit.
