At BRUSH Modern Dentistry, patient comfort is one of my top priorities. I've invested in a large amount of dental technology that will help us make your procedures more comfortable such as the dental laser for treating gum disease and rotary endodontic tools to make root canal therapy smooth and efficient. 

I know most patients don't look forward to dealing with the dreaded needle, so I also use products to make injections of dental anesthetics more comfortable. I use Dental Vibe, which uses vibration at the injection site to distract your brain and create a pain-free experience. I also use a strong compounded topical anesthetic that is specially made for us by our local pharmacy for the best results in numbing. I even have a product called Oraverse that reverses the effects of the dental anesthetic after treatment, so you don't have to endure the uncomfortable feeling of being numb for longer than is necessary for your procedure.

We also offer many amenities at BRUSH Modern Dentistry to ensure your comfort during your visits such as noise-canceling headphones, warm neck pillows and blankets, and televisions with Netflix to take your mind off of your treatment procedure. I promise you'll remember your experience at our Frisco, TX dental office – but in a good way!

Cosmetic Dentistry

Absolutely! Feeling confident about sharing your smile with the world is priceless. If you are considering making changes to the appearance of your smile, you will find all the services you need at BRUSH Modern Dentistry. I can even show you what your finished smile will look like before you start treatment with digital Smile Design software. This allows you to decide which cosmetic procedures will best suit your needs.

Some of the services we offer are:

  • Dental bonding - Repairs issues such as chips, fractures, spacing, and discoloration
  • Porcelain veneers - Can change the shape, shade, and size of your teeth to create your ideal smile
  • Invisible braces - Options for aligning your teeth with the ultimate discretion
  • Tooth-colored restorations - Dental fillings, bridges, or crowns to complement the aesthetics of your smile
  • Teeth whitening - We offer multiple options for brightening your smile

I am happy to sit down with you and discuss your objectives for your smile during a cosmetic consultation. Depending on your needs, your treatment plan may include one or more of the services listed above and can be divided into phases in some cases. At BRUSH Modern Dentistry, we offer the cosmetic dental services in Frisco combined with the advanced technology needed for you to achieve your best smile.

Emergency Dental Care

We welcome emergency patients to our Frisco dental office, and we make every effort to see you the same day that you've called. New patient emergencies are also welcome, and if you've never been to BRUSH Modern Dentistry before, we look forward to providing you with an exceptional experience while we get you feeling comfortable and back on the path to wellness again. Our team can also provide same-day treatment in many cases if it's necessary.

Some of the dental emergencies we help with are:

  • Lost or broken restorations - A dental filling, crown, or bridge
  • Toothaches or severe dental pain
  • A knocked out tooth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Soft tissue injuries

I encourage patients to contact BRUSH Modern Dentistry before heading to a hospital emergency room. This is because our team is better equipped to help with dental emergencies, and your ER will probably end up sending you back to your dentist anyway. Contacting my office first will save you valuable time and money in the long run and get you the relief you need much faster.

If you or a loved one is in pain or experiencing a dental emergency, contact BRUSH Modern Dentistry at (214) 494-9298.

Preventive Dentistry

Many patients have concerns about the safety and necessity of dental x-rays, and I want you to know that they are an essential tool that I use to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. These images allow me to see what is going on in your mouth with your teeth, bone, and jaw joint, and I can detect concerns that I wouldn't be able to with just an examination. I can also share these images with you right away since they are readily available, which allows me to discuss your treatment needs with you.

At BRUSH Modern Dentistry, we utilize digital x-rays, which minimize radiation 80% more than traditional x-rays taken in the past. They also have minimal impact on the environment because we don't need the harsh chemicals to develop them that were required by traditional x-rays.

So it's safe to say that x-rays are a necessary and invaluable tool that I rely on. You can also rest assured that they are very safe and won't cause you harm. If you have additional questions or concerns about the x-rays we take or any other aspect of your dental care, I encourage you to contact BRUSH Modern Dentistry and speak with one of my knowledgeable staff members. We are always happy to answer your questions!

Choosing the right toothbrush is essential for maintaining your dental health; however, it can feel overwhelming with the large number of choices you have.

My wife and I and all of our staff members use the Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush. Studies have shown that electric toothbrushes clean your teeth more efficiently than using a manual toothbrush. So, I do recommend that you use an electric toothbrush if you can. While they are higher in cost initially and you do have to pay for replacement brush heads every three months or so, the benefits they provide in removing plaque and bacteria from your mouth are worth it. 

If you can't use an electric toothbrush, be sure to choose a manual toothbrush with medium to soft nylon bristles. Using a hard bristle brush could be rough and damaging to your delicate gum tissue. Be sure that the size of your toothbrush head isn't too big. The right brush head allows you easy access into the farthest corners of your mouth.

We are happy to discuss recommendations for the right dental products for your needs during your next preventive care visit. Or, you can feel free to contact my Frisco dental office with any additional questions or concerns you may have about oral hygiene products.

Teeth Whitening

At BRUSH Modern Dentistry, I offer a few different options for whitening your teeth, depending on your needs.

In-Office Whitening

The KöR whitening system is one of the in-office treatments that I offer. I chose to work with KöR because of its reliable track record of achieving proven results. Especially for patients who have had little to no success with teeth whitening in the past. KöR combines both in-office and take-home treatments to deliver exceptional results that also tend to last longer than other whitening systems. Even patients who have lived for years with staining from fluorosis or tetracycline can and do achieve the bright white smile they've always wanted with KöR.

Take-Home Whitening

We also offer take-home whitening systems that allow patients the flexibility to whiten their teeth based on their unique schedule in the comfort of their home. My team will create custom trays for you, which ensures better results and protection for your gums and soft tissues. In about two weeks, you should achieve your desired results with a take-home whitening system. Better yet, you can update your smile anytime with custom take-home whitening trays. So you never have to worry about your smile being ready for the next big event!
