Here at Studio Smiles, we understand that dental health is important, but that it can be expensive to maintain. That’s why we offer fixed price dental check ups, so that you can keep your smile looking its best without breaking the bank.
Dental emergencies can be costly and stressful, but at Studio Smiles, we offer fixed price emergency dental treatment to help put your mind at ease. We understand that dental emergencies can happen at any time, and we want to help you get the treatment you need as quickly and affordably as possible.
Getting your wisdom teeth removed can be a daunting prospect, but at Studio Smiles, we offer our patients the option of sedation or general anaesthetic dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry. This means that you can have your procedure performed while you are sleeping, and you won’t feel a thing.
A root canal procedure can save your tooth and prevent it from needing to be extracted. And with our same-day crowns, you can walk out of our office with a beautiful, healthy smile.
Our fillings are made from durable materials that will withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. We also offer a variety of colours to match your natural tooth colour. Whether you need a filling for a small chip or a large cavity, we can help.
A gum graft is a procedure in which healthy gum tissue is transplanted to an area of the mouth that has receded due to periodontal disease. Gum recession can cause a number of problems, including tooth sensitivity, root damage, and an increased risk of cavities. In addition, receded gums can make teeth look longer than they actually are. Gum grafting can help to correct these problems and restore the mouth to its original appearance.
At Studio Smiles, we understand that losing your teeth can be a difficult and upsetting experience. We also know that choosing the right dentures is an important decision and one that should not be taken lightly. That’s why we offer a wide range of denture options so that you can find the perfect fit for your smile.
At Studio Smiles, we understand how important your time is, which is why we offer same-day crowns using our CEREC system. With CEREC, we can create your new crown right in our office, and you can walk out with a beautiful, natural-looking smile in just one visit.
While bridges are most commonly used to replace missing teeth, they can also be used to correct misaligned teeth or close gaps between teeth. Bridges can be removable or permanent, and they can be supported by dental implants, natural teeth, or a combination of both. At Studio Smiles, we offer a variety of different dental bridge options to meet the needs of our patients.
At Studio Smiles, we believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they can be proud of. That’s why we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to help our patients achieve their desired look. From professional teeth whitening to veneers and dental implants and complete smile makeovers, we offer everything you need to achieve the perfect smile.
At Studio Smiles, we offer both composite and porcelain dental veneers. Each type of veneer has its own benefits, and our team will work with you to determine which type is right for your smile makeover. Composite veneers are made from a resin material that is coloured to match your natural tooth colour. Porcelain veneers are made from a thin layer of ceramic that is also colour-matched to your natural teeth. Both types of veneers are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, and they can be used to correct a wide variety of cosmetic concerns, including chips, cracks, gaps, and discolouration.
At Studio Smiles, we offer composite bonding, also known as composite veneers and edge bonding, to help patients achieve their desired smile. This minimally invasive procedure uses a composite resin material to improve the appearance of the teeth.
If you have gums that are too large or uneven, a gum lift can give you a more balanced and attractive smile. In addition, gum lifts can also help to improve the health of your gums by reducing inflammation and irritation.
Whether you’re looking to whites for a special event or you want to make an everyday change, we can help you achieve your goals. Our convenient location near Black Rock makes it easy to get the teeth whitening care you need, and our affordable prices make our services accessible to everyone.
Whether you’re looking to improve your smile or simply want to replace a missing tooth, we can help. Our team of experienced dental implant specialists will work with you to determine the best course of treatment, ensuring that you get the results you desire.
This procedure is perfect for residents who are missing all of their teeth or who have significant damage to their teeth. All on 4 allows patients to get a full set of replacement teeth that look and function just like natural teeth.
This clear aligner system is virtually invisible, and because it is removable, patients can continue to eat their favorite foods and brush and floss with ease. Invisalign is also a comfortable option for patients of all ages.

We recommend that you see the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and check-up. However, if you have any concerns about your oral health, please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment.
Regular dental checkups are important because they allow your dentist to detect and treat problems early. Seeing your dentist regularly can also help you to maintain good oral health overall.
Some things you can do to prevent cavities include brushing and flossing regularly, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, and avoiding sugary foods and drinks.
We strive to establish rapport and trust to help you feel completely confident on your smile transformation journey.

Dr. Sabrina Escuza
Dr. Sabrina Escuza takes great pride in providing a calm environment where patients feel safe to express their needs, and comfortable to ask questions. Empowering you to take control of your oral health journey is her number one priority. She will thoroughly explain your conditions, how they came to be, and what treatment options are available to meet your health or aesthetic goals. Each patient is unique, and she will strategically tie all the aspects of dentistry into an individual journey that will work best for you. It doesn’t matter if it’s a check up, or a complete change that you’re seeking – she will look after you.
Florida, USA is where home is for Dr. Sabrina. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Melbourne, where she graduated with honours and an achievement award from the prestigious Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity. Eight years of uni has made her addicted to education – she is fluent in Spanish, has studied philosophy and French, and now spends her free time learning about the most modern dental treatment modalities through continued professional development courses.
Dr. Sabrina finds great joy in the intersections of dentistry – healthcare and artistry, function/aesthetics and mental health, communication and comfort. She is meticulous with the design of a smile, considering everything from the physics of your bite to the color of the porcelain. One of her favorite areas is where surgery meets prosthetics – sometimes losing a very broken down tooth means creating a healthy space for a beautiful replacement that will get you eating without pain and smiling without shame.
Apart from dentistry, Sabrina (not so) secretly thinks she is a master chef, and can be found trying to feed her friends the excessive amount of food she cooks. She loves music, a good picnic in the sun, and her dog, Nile.
