Sometimes, only a crown can be used to save a tooth if too much tooth structure is lost. Crowns restore the tooth to its normal function and look. When decay or cracks compromise the tooth, a crown that covers the tooth is the best way to ensure no further deterioration occurs. Think of it as a remodeling of your tooth. The advantages of a crown are numerous over large fillings, as it can seal the tooth from bacterial invasions between large fillings or cracks and can save the tooth from breaking. We ensure this experience is worth it. Our crowns are expertly crafted, matching the shade, color, and aesthetics of your natural teeth. We will make a temporary that fits well and can be used functionally as well as aesthetically until your crown is ready!
Dental bridges can replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. Permanently cemented using adjacent teeth, bridges can stop the gradual shifting of teeth while providing a natural appearance and level of function. At Kind Care Dentistry, we use very skilled labs to make porcelain bridges so that the natural shade and look of your existing teeth can be matched. Bridges can also transform your smile if a front tooth is missing by changing the shade and color of your existing teeth while also filling in the space missing.
Fillings are usually done in cases where cavities have caused a breakdown of tooth structure. We first remove the decay and fill the cavity with tooth-colored composite resin. Fillings can also be used to restore chips in teeth so that they will again look natural. We want to save as much as your tooth as possible, and fillings allow us to be very conservative and remove only what we need to.
We believe the natural tooth is always the best tooth and we will never take away more of your tooth structure than needed! There is no replacement for healthy teeth.
When a tooth has become badly infected because of gradual decay or a traumatic injury, its loss may seem imminent – but this isn’t necessarily the case here at Kind Care Dentistry. Root canal therapy is a saving grace that can restore the health and vitality of struggling teeth, helping you maintain a completely natural smile that serves you well for several more years to come.
We all know some teeth just cannot be saved. To ensure your oral cavity and systemic health is not compromised, it is best to remove teeth that have passed the point of no return. We use state-of-the-art tools, anesthetic techniques, and comfortable services to ensure this is a procedure that will cause relief and not discomfort. We know the anxiety this procedure involves, so we make sure to use the latest devices to make your appointment as fast, efficient, and comfortable as possible.
Third molars (more commonly known as “wisdom teeth”) are the last adult teeth to emerge into a person’s smile. Unfortunately, this isn’t usually a happy occasion – the lack of available space left in the mouth can lead to dangerous impaction, higher risks of infection, and other damaging circumstances that can negatively influence your oral health and overall wellbeing. That’s why Dr. Patel may recommend wisdom teeth extraction here in Orange Park, FL.
For patients who have lost several teeth or who are missing an entire arch in the upper or lower jaw, dentures provide a sturdy, natural-looking replacement. Dentures are essentially prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base, and they may be partial or full in nature. They can also be removable or attached to implants placed within the jaw.
Are you nervous that your new dentures will appear fake? Complete dentures can look just as great as your natural teeth. Dr. Patel always strives to design a custom-fit denture that uses the best materials and can mimic the natural teeth and tissues of a healthy smile. This customization takes time, but our pursuit of perfection and the communication between our patients and our dentist leads to increased patient satisfaction and fantastic results. We believe that restoring your smile should be a positive and rewarding experience from beginning to end.
