Restorative Dentistry – Lake Nona Region
Protecting Damaged & Decayed Teeth
Cavities and dental damage are two common problems that we treat at Lake Nona Dental Group. We utilize modern treatment solutions and the latest technology to provide lasting results that not only preserve your natural teeth, but also seamlessly blend in with your smile. The materials we use are also safe in your mouth and biocompatible, meaning they’re gentler on your teeth and gums than metal compounds dentists would use in the past.

Why Choose Lake Nona Dental Group for Restorative Dentistry?
In the past, dentists would use amalgam fillings to treat cavities, which were a compound of metals like silver and mercury. Today, we utilize a composite resin, which is a safe, biocompatible material that fuses with the existing tooth enamel to seal off the vulnerable inside tooth from harmful oral bacteria. When the process is complete, many patients aren’t even able to tell which tooth got the filling!
Dental crowns can be combined with pontics to create a dental bridge, which replaces one or more missing teeth in a row. However, crowns on their own can be used to repair teeth that have large fillings, are broken or cracked, or have just been treated. We use durable, customizable materials like Emax, zirconia, and porcelain to craft our restorations to make them look lifelike and last for years with the proper maintenance.
CEREC® One-Visit Dental Restorations
Typically, getting a dental crown takes nearly two weeks, and you need to visit the dental office multiple times. We use advanced CEREC technology and CAD/CAM software to make this process more precise and convenient than ever. It allows us to create a blueprint for and craft your dental restoration in-office, within a two-hour appointment. We use high-quality dental porcelain that’s color-matched to the shade of your enamel, so once it’s placed, your smile will be repaired and look great.
