Maintaining good oral health is important for both your physical and mental wellbeing.

Furthermore, good oral hygiene has been linked with reduced stress levels and improved self-esteem. That’s why it’s important to visit the dentist regularly for teeth cleanings. At Studio Smiles, we offer professional teeth cleanings in Melbourne. Our experienced dentists will thoroughly remove any plaque and tartar build-up, leaving your teeth looking and feeling their best.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are made of porcelain or composite material, and they can be used to correct a wide range of dental problems. If you have chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth, or if you have gaps between your teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Veneers are also less invasive than dental implants or other dental surgery, and they can usually be completed in just two visits to our office.

Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining good oral health. During a checkup, the dentist will professionally clean your teeth and remove any plaque or tartar buildup. They will also examine your teeth and gums for any signs of disease or other problems. If left untreated, dental problems can lead to pain, infection, and even tooth loss. In addition, research has shown that there is a link between gum disease and other health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Therefore, by seeing a dentist regularly, you can help to keep your mouth healthy and reduce your risk of developing other serious health problems.
General dentists provide a wide range of dental services. These include preventive care, such as regular teeth cleanings and sealants; diagnostic services, such as x-rays and oral cancer screenings; and restorative services, such as fillings, crowns, and bridges.
In addition, general dentists can also provide orthodontic treatments, such as braces and Invisalign.
For most people, a trip to the dentist is a routine procedure. However, if you have never been to the dentist before, you may be feeling a bit anxious about what to expect. The good news is that there is nothing to be afraid of. During your first visit, the dentist will simply examine your teeth and gums to check for any problems. If everything looks healthy, they may just give your teeth a good cleaning. However, if they do find any issues, they will work with you to develop a treatment plan. In either case, the dentist will take the time to answer any questions you have and help you feel more comfortable with the process.
One of the most common dental problems is tooth decay, which occurs when the hard outer shell of the tooth (enamel) is weakened by acids. This can happen when you eat sugary foods or drink acidic beverages. When the enamel is weakened, it allows bacteria to enter the tooth and cause decay.
Another common dental problem is gum disease. This occurs when bacteria build up on the gums and cause inflammation. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Other common dental problems include bad breath, mouth sores, and TMJ disorder (a condition that affects the jaw joint). Luckily, there are ways to prevent or treat all of these problems. For example, you can brush.
your teeth twice a day and floss regularly to remove plaque and bacteria. You can also see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.
Cavities are a common dental problem, but they are also preventable. The best way to prevent cavities is to practice good oral hygiene. This means brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and using mouthwash. It’s also important to eat a healthy diet and limit sugary snacks and drinks. In addition, regular dental checkups and cleanings can help to remove plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to cavities. By taking these steps, you can help to keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free.

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.
