Preventative Dentistry
Dental disease is mostly preventable and oral health is just as important as the health of the rest of your body. Untreated dental disease can lead to serious health problems such as systemic disease, infection, damage to bone or nerve, and tooth loss. Infection from tooth disease can even spread to other parts of the body and in rare cases, can lead to death.  We emphasize preventive dentistry by recommending healthy habits, healthy diet and proper oral care.  Always remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss twice a day, maintain regular dental continuing care appointments, and eat a balanced healthy diet. This will help you ensure a beautiful smile for a lifetime.

Family Dentistry
We provides a range of preventative, general, restorative, cosmetic, prosthetic, implant and orthodontic dentistry procedures for all ages and every member of your family.  By taking care of the entire members of your family, we can help you see the big picture of your family’s dental health. This is something that many families lack, especially when one parent sees a particular dentist, the other parent sees another dentist, and the kids see their own children’s dentist.  Also, we provide flexible, convenient scheduling for family visits.

Cosmetic Dentistry
We are dedicated to restoring your oral health as well as enhancing the beauty of your smile. Whether you’re looking to simply brighten the shade of your teeth or need a full smile makeover, we provide life changing cosmetic dentistry to help patients achieve the smiles they desire.  Many patients wish to attain a perfect smile and cosmetic dentistry can help conceal the imperfections.  We offer an array of cosmetic, general and orthodontic treatments that can target those specific concerns, utilizing the latest in dentistry, materials and techniques.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are modern alternative to traditional bridges & dentures. One of the main advantage of dental implants is the fact that they maintain jaw bone mass and height like normal dentitions. Dental Implants can also be  used as to secure dentures to dramatically improve functionality of otherwise loose dentures. The primary limiting factor for implants is inadequate jaw bone mass and bone graft procedures may be needed.

Braces & Clear Aligners
No matter what stage of life you are in, if you are considering braces to help straighten your smile, there are more options than ever before.  While there are subsets to any braces option, there are two overarching methods in orthodontic alignment: traditional braces and clear aligners. Clear aligners have a high comfort level and are aesthetically pleasing while their traditional counterparts hold a lower level of comfort and aesthetics but provide a more effective alignment process. Call us to schedule a complementary orthodontic consultation.  We will help you decide which type of braces are right for you.

Lumineers & Veneers
Lumineers and Veneers are translucent porcelain laminates permanently bonded to your teeth after your teeth are prepared to adequate thickness. It will close up gaps, cover up heavily stained or broken teeth and improve uneven smile with crooked teeth. Lumineers can be fabricated without any pain with minimum to no tooth grinding in many cases. Phoenix cosmetic dentist Dr. Roy Shim has extensive experience and knowledge with cosmetic veneer procedures.

Advanced CEREC CAD/CAM 
What would you say if we can make your crowns within 1 hour while you wait and no messy impressions are needed? Our professionals are well trained in digital 3D CAD/CAM dentistry and our patients leave with their permanent crowns in just 1 appointment. We have been offering 3D CAD/CAM crowns since 2009 with exceptional results.

ViziLItePRo
Fluorescence visualization with ViziLite PRO Oral Lesion Screening System provides completely new visual information that is fundamentally different from what clinicians see when looking at reflected light from a white, chemiluminescent or other light source. The ViziLite PRO has been engineered to operate within the wavelength for optimal discrimination of oral lesions, and provides a fast and effective approach to detecting epithelial dysplasia, even in its earliest stages.

Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea is a chronic condition characterized by frequent episodes of upper airway collapse during sleep. Its effect on nocturnal sleep quality and ensuing daytime fatigue and sleepiness are widely acknowledged. Increasingly, obstructive sleep apnea is also being recognized as an independent risk factor for several clinical consequences, including systemic hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and abnormal glucose metabolism.  If you don’t like those cumbersome CPAP masks fitted with a hose and straps, we have a simple dental device designed to be worn like a retainer.  Call us to find out more.

Over Dentures
Do you have loose dentures that you rarely wear?  Do you want to have a set of dentures that will fit and function with good retention?  Now we can add minimum 2 implants to maximum 5 implants to dramatically increase retention and function of your dentures.  Tell us about your experience with dentures and we will love to help you design and fabricate dentures that will fit your bill and expectations.  These are not All-on-4 Dentures that are typically recommended by Clear-Choice offices and most implant centers.  Over dentures are much more affordable than you think.

Headaches & TMD  (Temporal Mandibular Disorders)
Most patients see their primary doctors to resolve their headaches and TMD issues.  However, most headaches and TMD issues are caused by grinding, clenching and improper occlusion.  We love to hear about your current condition.  We provide many different treatment options such as occlusal equilibrations, occlusal splints, orthodontic treatments and full mouth reconstructions to suit your individual condition.

Bridges & Crowns
Missing teeth make it difficult to chew without pain or smile without embarrassment. If missing teeth are not promptly treated, they can cause your remaining teeth to shift and become crooked.  Dental bridges have been used for years to replace missing teeth. A crown will enhance the appearance of the damaged tooth. More importantly, a crown will restore the tooth’s natural function. Your crown will enable you to bite down, chew, and speak with naturally.

Reviews from verified true patients of our offices

Being new to the area my hubs and I were looking for a good family dentist that we could trust and wouldn’t try to up-sell us all the time and do a good job. Another dentist kept pushing a $200 whitening treatment when he really didn’t need them. We decided to go with our friend’s recommendation.

When we came in for our appointment, we were greeted by the staff. It was early morning and I just wanted to sit down. We got to sit in their nice waiting area. The decor was nice and they were playing relaxing music. There were also some of my favorite mags I could browse while we waited.

When we were called to our rooms the hygienist helped us. When I finally got to meet Dr. Shim he was very helpful in explaining preventative health and all the different options if I was interested. I was experiencing Jaw pain from TMJ and sometimes my jaw would POP. They also told me about flossing more regularly and when the best time is to brush your teeth. Which is after breakfast!! Gross, but who would’ve thought?

Had to get two teeth refilled from last year…because my previous dentist didn’t do a good job…but I was numbed up by the Dr. and didn’t even feel a thing. I never had such a fast filling done. And biting into food doesn’t feel off.

Well I’m glad they took the time to explain everything so that I could take the right steps in correctly and hopefully needing less work next year. The staff is all very nice here you’ll have a great experience.

I had seen Dr. Shim at his first office a couple of years ago and went to see him at his new office. I had to replace a filling that was past it’s prime; i think i had it put in when i was in high school!

Dr. Shim and I discussed the options and he took the time to explain the pros and cons of each option. I chose the ceramic and he was able to do everything in the single trip and I didn’t have to come back to get it installed which was great.

I’ve been to a few different dentists and each are different/better or worse in different ways. I like Dr. Shim because while friendly, he isn’t a chatterbox. He is patient and a good explainer and the work he has done has held up well over time.Is he the best I’ve been to? depends on what best is. He is definitely one of the better ones I’ve seen and I will continue to go see him.

Joe

Excellent dental experience. Dr. Shim and entire staff have been amazing! Dr. Shim explained each step as he went making it a more comfortable experience since sometimes you wonder what all is going on in your mouth as you hear the drilling and such. His staff was very helpful, kind, and understanding.

Veronica

I have been coming to this dental office for three years , they have always been friendly and very knowledgable. I never have any issues with my insurance or care I get from them. My teeth are healthier thanks to them , Dr Shim is very friendly and easy to ask questions , he gives detailed answers and makes it very easy to understand what he is saying. I have moved away from the office but still take the time to drive here instead of finding something closer to home.
