Sedation Dentistry


Anxiety-Free Dental Care from Luminous Smiles

We understand that a dentist’s chair is not always a person’s preferred place to spend their time. At Luminous Smiles, we take every measure we can to ensure a warm and comfortable environment for our Newport Beach dental patients. Sedation dentistry allows us to provide optimal treatment with minimal discomfort.

Sedation is typically administered to healthy individuals who need help relaxing or managing their stress. Lengthy procedure times and dental anxieties are a few of the other reasons our patients can be administered sedatives. Going a step further than other dental practices, we have an in-house Anesthesiologist to administer drugs for anxiety.

Dental Care You Can Relax With

The use of sedation has revolutionized the way patients view dental procedures. Gone are the days of dreading a visit to the dentist. Our state-of-the-art office has the most advanced tools and techniques to offer the best treatments while minimizing anxieties and pain.

At Luminous Smiles, we offer numerous types of sedation administered by our in-house Anesthesiologist, including:

  • Oral Sedation : A pharmacological agent administered prior to treatment to alleviate anxiety and help patients relax
  • Inhalation Sedation : Often referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide offers a euphoric feeling that makes dental treatments more pleasant
  • IV Sedation : A deep sedation reserved for patients who want little or no memory of their dental visits
  • Numbing Gel : A prolonged placement of numbing gel and liquid numbing solution may be needed for full-mouth cleaning

Providing Compassion & Professionalism

Our staff is not only trained and professional but compassionate to the needs of all our patients. You will always be greeted with a warm smile when you enter our office and will be provided the dignity and respect you deserve throughout your entire visit. We go out of our way to deliver the level of dental care and compassion we would want for our own families. Located in Newport Beach, we also serve Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, and surrounding areas.
