What is a prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist has advanced training in the repair and replacement of teeth using appliances such as crowns, bridges, and implants. Completing a three-year post-graduate prosthodontics residency, Dr. Patel has in-depth knowledge of facial structure and expertise in helping patients with problems related to damage, loss, or genetic abnormality. Working with a prosthodontist like Dr. Patel to redesign your smile means that your treatment will be comprehensive and above to improve the long-term stability of your oral health.
Implant dentistry for tooth replacement.
Dr. Patel can replace your lost tooth or teeth with dental implants. Dental implants replace not only the crown of the tooth which is visible above the gum line but also the lost tooth root. In effect, this replaces the “whole tooth” and supports better long-term oral health compared to other options.
When using dental implants, there is less bone loss over time which allows you to maintain the natural look and structure of your lower jaw. Implants also restore normal biting capability to enable you to enjoy your favorite foods without discomfort or concern.
Do you have a slipping denture?
Dr. Patel can work with you to create a new smile that is held securely in place using dental implants. An implant-supported denture can provide renews confidence if you have been struggling with a poorly fitted denture or bridge.
Real Patients, Real Results: Dental Implants
Crowns & Veneers: what are the benefits?
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Patel has a high level of knowledge and expertise in addressing teeth that are damaged or have cosmetic irregularities. In many cases, cosmetic concerns are the result of an underlying dental health problem that is structural in nature. Identifying and correcting this is key to a lasting outcome and a result that looks great feels great and supports your oral health.
Dr. Patel places high-quality custom dental crowns for the treatment of a range of concerns and problems. These include advanced tooth decay, broken teeth, chipped teeth, or teeth that are rotated or misshapen but do not affect the bite. Dental crowns can serve many purposes in the lifetime of your smile and will strengthen your tooth to minimize the chance of losing it or sustaining additional decay or damage.
In addition to crowns, dental veneers are another available treatment for changing the appearance of your smile or addressing tooth damage. Dr. Patel often recommends porcelain veneers for patients seeking a highly customizable solution that is durable, lasting, and beautiful. Porcelain veneers can close gaps between teeth, and change the shape or the color of a tooth.
