We'll Leave You Smiling
Holistic Dentistry for You!
Elite Smiles is your premier holistic and biological answer to dentistry.
How is a holistic/biological dentist different? The simple answer is that this dental practice doesn’t just treat your dental issues, we seek out what caused those problems in the first place. Then we find real solutions to how you can eliminate those issues from ever happening again.
Holistic dentistry looks at the whole body and how everything relates to each other.
Did you know it is estimated that 60-80% of the most common health disorders have some relationship to the mouth? At Elite Smiles we seek to help our patients find optimal health, not only in the mouth, but in the whole body and mind. We help you find wellness through our cutting-edge dental therapies, use only the best most biologically compatible materials, provide multi-step whole health analysis, nutritional counseling, and more.
Building a Foundation of Trust
Elite Smiles maintains the highest standards in Mesa dentistry. Our philosophy at our Mesa office centers on providing exceptional care and genuine compassion that our patients deserve. We are advocates of preventative care and education because we believe they are keys to ideal oral health. Our focus is on comprehensive exams, uncompromised safety, training and expertise, and an entirely positive experience. We are eager to see you soon and take care of your dental needs for many years to come!
Why Choose Elite Smiles?
Being holistic dentists, we make sure our services and the products used in them are safe for the mouth and the body as a whole. For this reason we avoid silver (amalgam) fillings as they contain high levels of mercury—a heavy metal known to be toxic even in small amounts!
We provide safe mercury removal for replacement by more biocompatible resin fillings (which look better too!). We also use non-metal dental implants and incorporate Ozone therapy, among many other holistic dental services.
Dental Health & Wellness Exam
In order to promote both dental and overall physical health, we need to get to the root cause of your dental and health challenges. This involves covering your health history as well as using 3D imaging and comprehensive oral evaluations during our initial 90-minute exam.
Here we discuss what we have found and offer the most appropriate and effective treatments. We will of course answer any of your questions to help you better understand the nature of your health problem and how our treatment can help.
The reason for this whole health analysis is that the body, like nature itself, is interconnected—problems in one area of the body (like the mouth) can have profound, even if seemingly unrelated, effects on others.
For example, gum disease may lead to heart problems. Research has shown that the bacteria found in gum disease are also found in plaque and can infect other parts of your body causing health issues elsewhere. Heart disease is the number 1 killer of men and women globally—in response to this, Elite Smiles offers holistic health analysis and biocompatible dental treatment options.
We provide treatments ranging from simple procedures such as applying dental sealants on children’s teeth at early ages to reduce tooth decay later on, to more complicated restorations such as crowns and bridges.
Mercury Free Fillings & Safe Mercury Removal
The term “silver filling” is very misleading, as these amalgam fillings actually contain very little silver. Instead, they are composed of over 50% mercury, which is toxic and can lead to a number of issues both physically and mentally, including:
- Brain Fog
Many European countries have outright banned the use of mercury fillings—especially for children and pregnant women—and for good reason.
Elite Smiles takes a non-toxic approach to restorative treatment. The tooth colored fillings we provide at our Mesa dental clinic are non-metallic and made from safe alternatives such as pure porcelain or glass ionomer cement.
Our Dental Services
Exams & Hygiene
Good dental care requires more than just regular dental cleaning. We are committed to providing you with a thorough cleaning every time you visit us. During your dental examination, we will check for hidden problems that can lead to more serious problems down the road. We are also able to catch early signs of decay and treat them during this process.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are a good option when a tooth has been badly decayed or broken. They will repair your smile while safeguarding the maximum amount of natural healthy tooth structure. They look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
Dental bridges are a great solution for missing teeth, especially if they are sitting next to a tooth that requires a crown, as bridges are essentially dental implants connected to up to two dental crowns (one on one side or one on each side) that serve to “bridge the gap” of the missing tooth.
Cosmetic dentistry is any form of dentistry that improves the look of a person’s teeth (as well as their facial structure through indirect means). We can do this by giving you a whiter smile or straighter teeth, as well as providing porcelain veneers and dental implants.
Periodontics refers to the gums and supporting jaw bone structure.
We treat periodontal disease (gum disease) through deep cleaning, scaling, and root planing. We also give you tips on how to improve your oral hygiene routine. This will keep the gums from receding further and keep cavities from forming in between the teeth.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that look just like natural teeth, which are surgically placed into the jaw bone. These implants bond with your bone and gums to create a strong support base for replacement teeth.
As holistic dentists, we avoid metal implants and instead opt for more biocompatible materials that are just as strong (and better looking!).
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you suffer from sleep apnea, our professionals can provide oral appliances to help you breathe better at night.
There are various ways we can treat TMJ, including trigger point injections and headache therapy.
From wisdom tooth extractions to denture implants, our oral surgery is designed to help you regain your smile with ease.
By using conscious sedation and topical anesthetic, you can expect a stress-free and comfortable dental appointment.
We can help your smile look bright and beautiful again with customized dentures that fit you perfectly. Our experienced dentists know what it takes to make custom dentures that look completely natural.
We’re great with children, and we understand how important it is that your young ones have positive early experiences at the dentist—this sets the foundation for dental care later in life. We’re also able to help you determine how best to care for your child’s teeth and gums, and we’ll always consult with you before performing any treatment.
Emergency Dental Services
We extend our office hours so that we can take care of your dental emergency as quickly as possible, and we offer 24-hour emergency care if the need arises.
We offer a wide variety of amenities that help you sit back and relax during your dental appointment, including:
- Soothing Music
- Comfortable Dental Chairs
- Warm Scented Towels
- Neck Rests
- Words of Encouragement
