Say NO to metal, say YES to natural-looking fillings!
Metal-free fillings are a most common restoration used to fill in teeth damaged due to decay or other reasons. Metal-free fillings support remaining tooth structure, so there is less chance of breakage and you’ll be less prone to experiencing sensitivity to different temperatures. They can last many years and we can blend shades to find an exact match for your natural teeth — only you and your dentist will know you have a filling!
When it comes down to it, our metal-free tooth-colored fillings are a safer, stronger, more durable, and more attractive alternative to metal amalgam fillings.

Dentures are a prosthetic set of teeth used to replace multiple missing teeth. We offer both traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures have really changed people’s view on dentures. These dentures are held in place using a few carefully placed dental implants. Because they are fixed to the implant, implant-supported dentures won’t slip or come loose like dentures of the past. Many of our patients who have switched to implant-supported dentures are amazed by the stability they provide. In fact, they can chew carrots and bite into corn without feeling anxious!
Sleep Apnea and Airway Obstruction Treatment
An end to the snoring and suffering.
Snoring, feeling tired, and waking with headaches are all symptoms that might indicate sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious condition that can contribute to hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and in severe cases - even death.
Dr. Sharp offers a more comfortable and convenient solution: modern orthotic therapy. Many patients who have sleep apnea have been prescribed a CPAP machine. Most patients don’t like the inconvenience of a CPAP machine because they have to wear a bulky mask over their face while they sleep. For these patients, Dr. Sharp is very happy to offer oral appliances as effective alternatives. The oral appliance is customized by Dr. Sharp to maintain an open, unobstructed airway while you sleep.
Seamless restorations made in one visit!
Crowns are used to improve the appearance or maintain the strength and structure of a tooth damaged by decay. You can now have a high quality, long lasting crown designed and fit in a single appointment thanks to CEREC technology!
We build the majority of our crowns in the office using CEREC Cad Cam technology and eMax porcelain (Lithium Disilicate) for increased strength. Each crown is fit and adjusted to an ideal bite prior to custom coloring and glazing. Your new crown will have a smooth, clean, and natural look!
