Welcome to our office!

Welcome to the website of R. Shawn Essey, D.M.D., L.L.C., a distinguished dental care provider serving the dental needs of patients in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Dr. Essey and his team of skilled professionals work together to provide quality dental treatment solutions for children, teens and adults. We strive to provide personalized and thorough dental care to achieve comprehensive dental wellness. From common problems to gum disease, we provide an array of dental services to meet your dental needs, including:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function like your own natural teeth. Implants can restore the aesthetics of your smile, or act as an anchor for dentures.

Venus White Bleaching

It 's hard to imagine anything more appealing than a sparkling, white smile.  Yet out teeth rarely stay as white as we'd like them to without a little help.  Venus White offers affordable, superior at home whitening for a whiter smile in one week and it is available here at Dr. Essey's office.

You can trust Venus White to help you achieve and maintain a brighter, more radiant smile.  We have a high performance Venus White option that is just right for you.

Venus White Pro is the high performance whitening system specially formulated for simple at home use.  We will work with you to create custom fit trays and will also have touch up kits available.  Use night or day for a bright, radiant smile.

Venus White Ultra offers a quick, convenient and easy way to whiten in just 7 days.  The trays are pre-filled wit mint flavored gel.  These trays are disposable and made of a super thin material offering comfort and effective whitening in just 7 days!

There are lots of things you can do to make sure your whitening results last as long as possible, and this will vary from person to person.  First of all please maintain your usual good routine of brushing and flossing every day and be sure to keep up with your recare appointments in our office.  Avoid foods and beverages that cause stain, such as coffee, tea, red wine, tomato based foods.  Try drinking staining fluids thru a straw if possible or do a swish and swallow with water after having one of those drinks or food.

 

 

September is Healthy Aging Month!

 

Think it's too late to re-invent yourself?  Think again!  According to the editor-in-chief of Healthy Aging Magazine, it's never too late to find a new career, sport, passion or hobby.  Now in it's second decade, this month provides inspiration and practical ideas for adults, ages 45 plus to improve their physical, mental, social and financial well being.

The numbers of people over 45 are growing every year. There are over 76 million baby boomers today over 50 and the first of the 82.1 million generation x-ers reached that milestone in 2015.

This month accentuates the need to draw attention to the myths of aging and to remind all it's never to late to take control of your health!  Think about the positive aspects of aging instead of the stereotypes and negative aspects!

How is your smile?  Research shows people who smile more often are happier.  Your teeth are just as important to your good health as the rest of your body.  Not only is it the first thing people notice, but good oral health is a gateway to your overall well being.

Please ask our knowledgeable hygienist about the oral systemic link and how it can impact healthy aging.

Be sure to keep up with regular visits to make sure there are no risks for infection.

Consider orthodontics which can greatly enhance not only health but esthetics as well.

Look into teeth whitening, nothing says old more than yellowing teeth!

Please talk to Dr. Essey concerning any and all of these issues,  we can give you the smile you want!
