When we talk about oral health, it’s important to recognize that life just happens sometimes, and life is hardly ever perfect. Tooth enamel can erode and break down as the years go by, resulting in increased sensitivity and more difficulty eating the foods you enjoy. At Studio Dental of Chisholm Trail, Dr. Patel has the materials and expertise to fully restore your smile, all while helping you maintain a natural-looking appearance in the process. To get started with restorative dentistry in Fort Worth, TX, give our dental office a call!
Unlike other parts of the human body, tooth enamel does not regenerate once it has been lost or damaged. This is why dentists emphasize the importance of at-home oral care. Once the enamel has broken down, it will only continue to do so, meaning more complex treatments will be needed to salvage it. Additionally, untreated dental issues increase the likelihood of teeth sensitivity, discomfort, and even oral infection that all lead towards the same place—tooth loss.
When restoring teeth, the first treatment we often look at is the placement of a dental crown. These restorations are meant to seal the damaged portions of your tooth away from oral bacteria, plaque, and tartar. They also make it possible to chew the foods you enjoy without worry about future erosion or discomfort. Our dental office provides metal-free restorations so you don’t have to sacrifice your smile’s appearance just to repair it.

Unlike silver amalgam fillings of the past, tooth-colored alternatives do not contain any metal materials. Composite resin, which is a mixture made from glass and plastic, is shaded, molded, and shaped inside of a slightly decayed tooth so we can reduce the need for removing enamel just to make room for the filling. And, because the resin can be color-matched to your enamel, you can rest knowing that your restored tooth will look natural by the end of treatment.
If your smile has multiple imperfections, such as several decayed or damaged teeth, one treatment may not be enough to address them all. Dr. Patel performs full mouth reconstructions when many teeth are in need of repair, using dental crowns, fillings, or more complex restorations as needed. Over the course of multiple visits, he’ll work with you to create and implement a treatment plan that restores all of your teeth to the fullest, giving you the ability to smile, chew, and speak with ease.
