Dr. Kar is a talented prosthodontist who has extensive experience with dental restorations, including implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, and more. A prosthodontist is extensively trained in developing solutions that align perfectly with a patient’s unique needs.
Because of a prosthodontist’s skill and expertise, it makes sense to see this type of specialist if you are missing one or more teeth or if you are seeking treatment from a highly trained dentist who has experience with complex procedures.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that simply fits over the top of a damaged tooth. With it, Dr. Kar can repair a large cavity, replace missing portions of a broken tooth, and even cosmetically enhance a misshapen or undersized tooth. He’s able to custom-design crowns in our own on-site dental lab to ensure they fit seamlessly into our patients’ smiles.
By placing two dental crowns on the teeth surrounding a missing one, this type of restoration can also be used to support a prosthetic to fill the space. This is called a dental bridge, and it not only restores the appearance of the smile, but it also brings back balance to the bite and prevents the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
For patients dealing with extensive tooth loss, dentures offer a relatively easy and affordable way to completely restore their ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again. Modern-day dentures are smaller, sleeker, and more natural-looking than ever, and those made by Dr. Kar fit like a dream as well. Partial dentures can replace multiple teeth missing along one arch, while full dentures can replace an entire row. Patients can even enjoy the strongest and longest-lasting fit available with custom-made, implant-retained dentures.
With a tooth-colored filling, Dr. Kar is able to quickly repair a small cavity without altering a tooth’s appearance or sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. This is a vast improvement over traditional amalgam fillings that always leave a large gray mark on a tooth and often make it more sensitive. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin material that can be specially shaded to match a patient’s enamel color, making the restoration practically invisible within the mouth.
Has it been a very long time since you’ve visited the dentist? Have you recently suffered a traumatic dental injury? No matter what condition your teeth may be in now, whether they’re decayed, broken, or missing altogether, Dr. Kar can provide full-mouth reconstruction to give you a smile that looks great and functions wonderfully. Based on your specific needs, he can put together a comprehensive plan that will rebuild your smile so you can enjoy it for a lifetime to come.
