Restore Your Smile
Restore your smile and protect your health.
The Mouth-Body Connection and Your Smile
The body is an awesome biological machine with countless systems that must work together to function properly. The connection between overall health and oral health is especially powerful and one most people often overlook. A healthy smile encourages an overall healthy body. Advanced gum disease, for example, can put a person at risk for other conditions, such as heart disease, colorectal cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, systemic inflammation, and more. That’s why it’s vital to protect your oral health: so you can protect your overall health. Restorative dentistry can help you do just that.
From missing teeth to infection and beyond, Dallas Cosmetic Dental has you covered—with your comfort being our top priority.
A Solution to Tooth Loss That Also Protects Your Oral Health
Whether a result of gum disease, decay, or trauma, losing a tooth is a serious event that must be corrected. A missing tooth can inhibit the way you smile, speak, and eat, and it can lead to many other dental and overall health problems.
The most fundamental part of a healthy smile is good tooth-root structure. The roots of your teeth maintain jawbone density and provide the foundation for your smile. As the prosthetic that most closely mimics nature’s design, dental implants serve as substitute tooth roots. We strategically place each implant in the jaw, then bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation and an excellent anchor for a crown, bridge, or denture. With proper care, they can last a lifetime. Learn more about dental implants and Dr. Alhadef’s approach.
Get Your Smile Back and
A Secure Denture Option
Improve your oral function and overall quality of life with implant-supported dentures from Dallas Cosmetic Dental. Thanks to a more natural distribution of biting pressure, implant-supported dentures look and feel more like natural teeth than traditional dentures.
Dr. Alhadef trusts Nobel Biocare, the leader in implant technology, for his patients’ implant-supported dentures. Nobel’s All-on-4 system offers stability, flexibility, and increased efficiency, while the Nobel Biocare locator attachments use self-aligning technology to make the overdentures easy for patients to use.
If you want to give your smile the look, feel, and function of natural teeth, consider implant-supported dentures from cosmetic dentist Dr. Gary Alhadef.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
An Answer for Tooth Loss
When you have significant tooth loss, a traditional denture might be the best option for you. A properly fitting denture is very important. A good fit ensures that your denture will allow you to retain much of your mouth’s function, which is important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw. Dentures can keep you looking and feeling healthy and help you retain a natural lifestyle. A lifelike smile and the best possible fit are two of the primary goals Dr. Alhadef will achieve if you need dentures to restore your smile.
If you’re only missing a few teeth and not an entire arch, a partial denture may be a solution for you. Partial dentures are perfect to replace several missing teeth that cannot be corrected with a bridge. Partial dentures are removable, and we design them to fit comfortably and to blend in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal framework. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile while remaining functional. Partials are important for keeping existing teeth from tilting and moving in toward the gaps from missing or extracted teeth.
Ceramic and Zirconia Crowns
Dr. Alhadef offers several options for dental crowns that will restore your smile and protect your teeth for years to come. Because it completely covers the affected tooth, a dental crown can save a badly decayed or damaged tooth. Dr. Alhadef has decades of experience that has led him to offer only the best dental crowns made from premier materials. Zirconia and ceramic crowns mimic the look of a natural tooth while providing stability and protection to the remaining tooth structure under the crown.
If you do need a crown, Dr. Alhadef will talk with you about the options that are best for your situation. That may be a zirconia, ceramic, or CEREC same day crown depending on the particular tooth needing treatment. A CEREC crown involves cutting-edge technology that enables Dr. Alhadef to design, create, and place the crown in your mouth in just one visit.
Protecting Your Oral Health
Missing a tooth can leave you wondering what your options are to remedy the issue. A dental bridge could be the right solution for you. A dental bridge is a prosthetic that spans the gap created by your missing tooth, each end anchored to your natural, healthy teeth on either side of the gap. If you don’t have a healthy tooth for the bridge to anchor to, a dental implant could be an option instead. The most important factor in determining whether you’re a candidate for a dental bridge is your overall oral health. Dr. Alhadef and his team will evaluate the surrounding teeth and gum tissue to check for any issues and offer recommendations to resolve any that pop up.
We color-match the bridge to your existing teeth, so it will blend right in! In addition to restoring your natural smile, dental bridges protect you from the harmful effects that missing teeth can have on your oral health. Without anything in the gap, your teeth will begin to shift into it, sometimes creating gaps and other bite alignment issues. This increases your risk for more dental issues in the future. Placing a bridge in the gap, however, keeps your teeth where they belong. Dental bridges also make it easier to eat and speak; because the bridge is attached to your natural teeth or to a dental implant, eating feels secure and natural.
Restoring Your Naturally Designed Oral Function
Neuromuscular dentistry is physiologic-based dentistry—it’s all about finding the perfect harmony of nerves and muscles working together so you can achieve optimal health! Some signs that you may be in need of neuromuscular dentistry include snoring, sleep-disordered breathing (such as sleep apnea), and issues with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
The nerves, muscles, bones, and joints in your mouth are designed to work together. Sometimes, though, they need a little help to do so. Dr. Alhadef of Dallas Cosmetic Dental has seen patients who were suffering from painful temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), sleep apnea, and snoring finally find relief with his approach to neuromuscular dentistry. Dr. Alhadef has decades of experience and continuing education from the Las Vegas Institute, a renowned international organization pioneering a physiologic, scientific approach to uncovering a patient’s stable physiologic neutral zone. This neutral zone is when the muscles, nerves, bones, and soft tissues are working optimally in perfect balance.
If you have been suffering from sleep apnea, TMD, or pain in your face, jaw, and neck, schedule your evaluation today.
Full Mouth Restorations
A Whole New Smile Designed Just for You
In extreme cases, the only solution to repair and restore your oral health is to rebuild the entire mouth through full mouth restoration. When your oral health is suffering, your overall health is too. Restoring the function and beauty of your smile will help to protect your overall and long-term health as well by eliminating sources of inflammation and potential for infection.
Every person is different, and so is the path to full mouth restoration. The first step in full mouth restoration, or any other complex treatment, is to talk with Dr. Alhadef so he can evaluate your current oral health status and any issues you may be facing. Dr. Alhadef will then customize a treatment plan for you that meets your specific needs. Full mouth restoration may include a number of restorative dental treatments, including but not limited to periodontal care, orthodontic treatment, crowns, bridges, or dental implants. No matter what treatment plan you need, Dr. Alhadef will explain all the options. He’s known for being a fantastic patient advocate, communicating information in understandable terms and respecting your ability to decide what’s best for you. When your treatment is complete, you will love your results!
