What Is Restorative Dentistry

by | Jan 19, 2023

Not everyone who comes to us is looking for cosmetic help. At Dynamic Smile Design, we are pleased to offer restorative dentistry to all our patients whose smiles are not at peak health. Restorative dentistry seeks to return full structure and function to a mouth that has been damaged by injury or decay. If you have broken or missing teeth or injured gums, we can help return your smile to its best.

Although porcelain veneers are often cosmetic, they can often be used to repair a chipped or broken tooth by building on the remaining solid foundation. Porcelain dental crowns can also help hold together the sides of a cracked tooth to keep the split from growing wider.

If your teeth are badly damaged or missing, they can be replaced using dental implants. Not only is this the healthiest available solution, but it also provides the most solid and durable results. Dental implants feel like real teeth, and will restore your confidence in your smile. Come to Dr. Patel for dental implants in Orlando.

When single-tooth implants are not an option, we offer both implant-secured and traditional dentures and bridges. Working with a small gap or with a row of missing teeth, we fill in the empty spaces with comfortable, realistic prosthetics that will allow you to smile, speak, and eat in much the same way you always have.

Using composite resins, we are able to fill or rebuild teeth that have sustained damage. Composite resins have the same shine and translucency as dental enamel, and can be color-matched to your teeth, so once placed, resin fillings are practically invisible. Depending on the size and placement of your fillings, they can last as long as traditional metal fillings, without the dark discoloration or the use use of mercury that traditional amalgam requires.

If your problems are bigger than a few fillings or an implant can fix, Dr. Patel offers full-mouth restorations. She’ll take you through the entire process from your initial exam to your final procedure, using a comprehensive treatment plan developed specifically for you.
