Restorative Dentistry in Brentwood, TN
Exquisite Restorative Dentistry for Brentwood, Franklin, and Nashville, TN
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is restoring a tooth’s structure and aesthetics back to its optimal health and shape. If your smile has a cavity, severe tooth decay, a missing tooth, or experienced a traumatic accident, our restorative dental services are the solution for you.
Restorative dentistry does much more than rebuild your tooth’s structure. It allows you to eat your favorite foods, speak clearly, and gives you the confidence to smile proudly. At Nashville Dentistry Co., Dr. Ashish Patel offers a wide range of dental services to fix practically any dental issue you’re experiencing. As a member of many highly-respected dental institutions, Dr. Patel provides a high-level of comprehensive care to get you smiling again. Some of our restorative dental services include:
Setting the Standard for Dental Excellence
Your fully-trained restorative dentist uses tooth-colored fillings to restore teeth that have become damaged due to decay or trauma. Rather than use outdated amalgam (metal) fillings, Dr. Patel uses composite fillings that mimic your natural tooth. This makes these restorations discreet, yet very effective.
Fillings are simple to place, durable, and long-lasting. Your dentist will clean the affected tooth and use the composite resin, which will harden to protect the tooth from any further decay or infection. This restorative treatment is neither invasive nor uncomfortable.
A dental crown is a common restoration used when a tooth is so severely decayed or damaged that a filling isn’t enough to save the tooth. Also known as a “cap,” a crown is placed on top of the damaged tooth and revives the tooth’s function and strength. Plus, it looks and feels like your natural tooth, blending seamlessly with your smile.
Traditionally, it would take multiple appointments to place your permanent crown. That’s not the case with Dr. Patel. By using modern technology, this Brentwood dentist takes your care to whole other level while making your visit comfortable. We’re proud to offer the CEREC Same-Day Technology, which crafts your crowns in just one visit.
Losing a tooth can be distressing and, if left untreated, could have a detrimental effect on your health. With dental bridges, Dr. Patel can replace your tooth in very little time and restore your smile back to full health.
A bridge consists of a custom-made CEREC® crown anchored into place by the two adjacent teeth. This procedure is performed by cleaning the area of the missing tooth and making sure the natural teeth on either side are healthy. The custom crown is then placed and cemented to the natural teeth, anchoring it in place, leaving you with a beautiful smile.
Unfortunately, our natural teeth do not last forever. If you have lost the majority of your teeth, dentures may be the best option for you. There are two common types of dentures: partial and full. As the name suggestions, partial dentures fill in the gaps where multiple teeth are missing. Full dentures are fitted when all teeth are missing on either the upper or lower jaw.
Dentures are removable and can be cleaned as normal teeth. They are natural-looking and comfortably fit into your mouth. Each denture is custom-made and provides you with a beautiful, functional smile.
Are you looking for a permanent solution for your missing tooth? Then dental implants could be for you. This modern treatment allows Dr. Patel to restore your smile to its healthiest best. A dental implant consists of an artificial post, which is placed into your jaw to mimic a tooth root. Next, your restorative team creates a custom-made crown to be placed on top of the implant.
Dental implants return the functionality and look of your tooth. They can be cared for just like normal teeth and are very durable and long-lasting. Speak with Dr. Patel to find out if you are a candidate for implants.
If you get nervous about visiting the dentist or struggle to sit still for a long period of time, sedation dentistry can help you! This innovative treatment uses sedation techniques to help you relax, eliminate discomfort, and you may forget about your dental visit altogether.
Dr. Patel provides two types of sedation dentistry:
- Oral Conscious Sedation
- Nitrous Oxide
All our sedation options are safe, and we stay with you throughout your treatment.
