"He is hands down the best cosmetic dentist in the metroplex! I've been treating with him for 4 years and it's always a pleasure to go. I love the great results and no long waits plus he's soo sweet and caring! Thank you doctor for years of great dental health."- K.M. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"Came highly recommended and I can now see why. He is the go-to cosmetic dentist for the high flyers in my firm and I am in awe of my smile after getting done. A big thank you to Dr Sharda and his staff for the exceptional work. I have been telling my friends and family to get their treatments done as I am sure for someone with his talent and expertise won't be in network with insurance companies for long. But I will still be going to him that's for sure. Cheers"- M.M. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
"The Doctor no doubt is a master at cosmetic dental work. Was referred by a friend who had veneers done by Dr Sharda and she looked at least 10 years younger after the treatment, its unbelievable how your smile can do that. I had several "cheap" crowns replaced and they came out stunning. It is a very high end practice with all the latest tech, I am moving to California for work but will be coming here for my dental work even if I have to fly in just for that. Too good!"- J.M. / Google / Jul 31, 2020
"Could not be happier with my smile, I get complements almost every day. It was the best investment of my life and I am loving it, I am so glad I got my cosmetic work done here and did not make the same mistake I made earlier when I went with the cheapest cosmetic dentist to get my veneers done which at the end looked fake and broke down within a few years. Thank you Dr. Sharda for stellar work and staff for putting up with my anxiety and schedule. I have been recommending you guys to all my family and co-workers."- J.P. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"Trust the reviews, what an artist Dr. Sharda. He completely transformed my smile from something I was embarrassed about to something I am proud to flaunt. Like everything else in life you get what you pay for and I wanted nothing but the best after waiting soo many years to take care of my self and best is what I got. God bless Dr. Sharda, hope you live a long life to give people like me reason to smile again and with confidence."- T.S. / Google / Nov 04, 2020
candidates for n2o sedation
N2O is one of the most common sedation techniques that can be used safely on children and adults alike. Prior to recommending the use of nitrous oxide, Dr. Shardha will go through your current medications, medical history, and concerns to be sure that nitrous oxide gas is indeed a fit for you. Nitrous oxide sedation may be used for lengthy or simple procedures in conjunction with local anesthesia to help minimize your pain. Nitrous oxide sedation can also be used to help with fears or anxiety about dental work that keep you from visiting the dentist. This solution may not be a good choice if you have extreme phobias, trouble breathing through your nose, or have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or other similar conditions.
What To Expect
Before the procedure begins, the nitrous oxide gas will be administered through a nasal hood. As you gently breathe in the gas, it will act quickly and start to take effect. Dr. Shardha or a member of his team will observe your health and response to the gas. He will also adjust the dosage as needed throughout the procedure so you remain comfortable. You may notice tingling in your arms and legs, as well as a feeling of warmth, vibration, and euphoria, as the N2O takes effect. Nitrous oxide is typically used alongside a local anesthetic like lidocaine to create a deadened sensation. After the procedure is done, the gas is shut off, and the effects begin to subside shortly after.
