Bonding  Miramar, FL

Bonding

Dental bonding is the procedure where we apply a tooth colored plastic material to a patient’s tooth. Using a special light, the material hardens and bonds the material to the tooth.

Dental bonding is used to improve a patient’s smile. It can be used on cracked and decaying teeth. It also can be used for cavities. It can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth so you have a more uniform smile! It is also commonly used for receding gums by protecting the exposed teeth!

Dentures  Miramar, FL

Dentures

WHAT ARE DENTURES?

Removable or fixed dentures are a convenient option to restore missing teeth. These dental appliances can make it easier to talk and bite into food while renewing the look of your smile after tooth loss. Dr. Elsa Cortorreal provides full and partial removable and implant-supported dentures for patients in Miramar, FL. Full dentures replace each of the teeth in the upper arch, bottom arch, or both while partial dentures are used if a few of the natural teeth still remain in the jaw. We can help you decide which type of dentures are best for your dental issues and customize them for an attractive look and secure fit. Contact Bright Dental Solutions for your restoration exam to get started.

WHAT IS THE DENTURE PROCESS?

Dr. Cortorreal will begin the process by taking digital or molded impressions of your upper and lower arches. These impressions are then sent to a special dental lab, which will create your individualized dentures. Single-arch and bridge dentures use light resin, which may be reinforced by a titanium internal frame. When created with these high-quality biocompatible materials, dentures mimic the appearance of your real teeth and gumline. When your dentures are complete and sent to Bright Dental Solutions, we will ask you to return for a fitting where we will modify your dentures so they fit snugly or fasten them to already placed dental implants.

Denture Partials  Miramar, FL

Denture Partials

A removable partial denture is an optimal solution for patients who may be missing one or more teeth in a particular area of their mouth. Removable partial dentures are attached to a gum-colored base which may have a metal framework that helps to hold it in place against the surrounding teeth. These dentures serve to replace missing teeth, restore functionality, and generally improve oral health. When a tooth is lost, and the gap isn’t immediately filled, it can lead to the neighboring teeth to shift; this can create a significant change in your bite and can even cause long-term damage to your gums and jaw bone.

Removable partial dentures are a less invasive method to replace and restore missing teeth than alternative solutions. While they are more cost-effective and less invasive than implants, removable partial dentures require frequent, lifetime upkeep and maintenance. Because these partial dentures are removable and essentially rest on your gums, they need to be frequently cleaned, just like your natural teeth. By cleaning your dentures regularly, you keep your gums healthy and your dentures looking as good as new.

To begin treatment, we will determine if removable partial dentures are the best option for you. Factors such as oral hygiene, the location of the missing tooth gap(s), bone strength, and long-term viability for dentures all determine your treatment plan. Our team will start by taking dental impressions of your teeth which will serve as the mold used to create your dentures. Next, we will review the size, shape, and coloring of each replacement tooth to recreate your natural smile. Once these are determined, we send the molds to a dental lab which creates a mock-up partial denture for you.

During a fitting appointment with our team, we will have you test out the mock-ups to check how they fit, look, and feel in your mouth. This is the time you and our team will make adjustments to the fit or color of the teeth before sending the mock-ups back to the lab for alterations. Remember, your absolute honesty is needed as your feedback shapes the final removable partial denture you will be receiving. Once the final changes have been made to the mock-up, the lab will custom build your dentures. After we receive the final design, your last fitting session will be to make small adjustments for comfort, bite, or fit which can all be made in-house by our team.

Porcelain Crowns  Miramar, FL

Porcelain Crowns

WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?

When a tooth has been affected by extensive damage or decay, it may be treated using a dental crown. Our patient-friendly dental office in Miramar, FL offers these dental crowns to protect the visible part of an individual tooth while also regaining its normal function and appearance. Crowns are customized using metal or porcelain to blend beautifully with your existing teeth and may be used to repair teeth that are fractured, decayed, and malformed. Dental crowns can also be combined into a unit to function as a bridge or bond to individual implants to replace a missing tooth. Book a consultation with Dr. Elsa Cortorreal at Bright Dental Solutions to learn how a custom dental crown can elevate your dental health and smile.

HOW DO DENTAL CROWNS WORK?

Dental crown procedures typically take place during a couple of visits. At your initial consult, Dr. Cortorreal will administer local anesthesia to your damaged tooth and can provide additional sedation to improve your comfort level if you prefer. When the affected tooth is cleaned out, an impression of the treated tooth will be taken and used by a dental lab to generate your custom crown. A temporary restoration will be placed over your treated tooth to maintain normal function and a natural-looking appearance while your customized crown is being crafted. You will need to return to our office 1 – 2 weeks afterward to have the temporary restoration replaced with your custom-built crown.
