Restorative Dentistry Ocoee FL
At Classic Smiles, we understand that you deserve a gorgeous, healthy smile. Our goal is to ensure we prevent dental problems before they arise. Nonetheless, it is possible for issues like decay, caries, gum disease, or enamel erosion to arise. Infrequent dental checkups or cleanings and poor oral hygiene can result in dental problems. As such, we offer restorative care to reestablish the function, health, and beauty of your smile.
We provide an array of restorative procedures based on your specific case. When you come to us, we first do a thorough assessment comprising an in-depth examination of your mouth. We only recommend a procedure once we determine that it is the best way we can restore your smile.
Patients seeking to restore or repair minor to moderate decay can benefit from dental fillings. We utilize various kinds of dental fillings, including composite resin. We prefer composite fillings as they are almost indistinguishable from the natural surface of the other teeth.

Crowns are tooth-like caps that work to improve the structure and look of damaged or decayed teeth. Our dentist in Ocoee first reshapes the tooth to ensure the crown fits properly. After reshaping the tooth, the dentist bonds the crown to the enamel with a special dental adhesive. We utilize porcelain crowns because they provide a natural-looking smile.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns
If you are seeking a restorative procedure to repair a damaged or badly decayed tooth with immediate results, then same-day crowns are for you. CEREC same-day crowns can be placed in a single visit. We fabricate natural-looking crowns using modern dental technology. With these crowns, there are no temporary prostheses and no unpleasant impression material.

Our dentist affixes dental bridges to replace lost teeth. A dental bridge comprises two crowns that are mounted on the immediately adjacent teeth. A replacement tooth or pontic is suspended between the supporting crowns. We reshape the enamel of the support teeth to ensure that the crowns fit properly. If you have lost a tooth and want to get a replacement, you may decide to choose a dental bridge.

Dentures are removable appliances that our dentist uses to replace missing teeth. We utilize them in patients missing one or more teeth. Partial dentures are affixed to the nearby teeth using metal clasps. When it comes to complete or full dentures, they are fabricated from a flesh-colored acrylic base, supporting an entire arch of prosthetic teeth. Further, we provide custom-fitted dentures that provide more functional, durable, and comfortable replacement teeth. Speak with us if you have lost teeth and need a more affordable option to replace them.

Inlays & Onlays
Where a tooth has suffered an area of decay that is too large to be corrected with a filling and not so large to require a dental crown, our dentist may utilize inlays or onlays. An inlay is placed within the bite surface of the damaged tooth. On the flip side, an onlay extends further to cover one or more of the bite cusps.

A dental implant comprises a small zirconia or titanium screw that our dentist surgically mounts into the jaw. An implant works like the root of a replacement tooth. When inserted, we allow a healing period where the bone fuses with the metal posts in a process referred to as osseointegration.
Once the healing is completed, you have an implant that provides adequate support to the tooth against the forces of chewing and biting. Dental implants are a lasting solution for teeth replacement. They also provide teeth that feel, look, and function just like natural teeth. In Ocoee, dental implants are the best restoration you can choose if you need durable, lasting, and natural-looking replacement teeth. We evaluate our patients before placing implants to ensure the surgery will be successful.

Mini Dental Implants
Patients who do not qualify for traditional dental implants may receive mini implants. These implants are smaller than conventional dental implants. Despite their size, mini implants work very similar to full-size dental implants. Again, they are fabricated from biocompatible zirconia or titanium posts that integrate with the jawbone once affixed. Mini implants are particularly crafted to stably hold the replacement teeth without needing complex surgery. If you do not have a jawbone that is sufficient enough to hold and integrate with regular implants, our dentist may assess you for mini implants.

When an infection in a tooth spreads to attack the pulp tissue, a root canal may be suggested to salvage the tooth. The pulp region is where the connective tissues and nerve endings are found, and an infection in this area can contribute to intense pain. Our dentist removes the diseased or damaged tissue and cleans the area before filling it, utilizing a material referred to as gutta-percha. After the root canal treatment, we place a crown to cover the treated tooth and provide protection from further damage.
Discover how a root canal could save a tooth from being extracted.
We perform simple and surgical extractions at our dental clinic. A simple extraction is done when a tooth is visible above the gum line. If it is buried beneath the gum tissue, a surgical extraction is considered. Extractions are necessary to help prevent an infection from spreading and to avert other complications.
Learn more about tooth extractions and when they are necessary.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Many people have their third molars, also referred to as wisdom teeth. They usually erupt later after all of the other teeth have come in. As such, they may present problems to your oral health. While not everyone can have wisdom teeth extraction, if you notice that they have started causing problems like pain or a misalignment or they are likely to bring issues in the future, we advise that you have them removed.
