Highland Creek Modern Dentistry

Carrie P.
Dr. Patel was very fast and efficient. Lawrence was helpful and considerate of my comfort level. The entire team made sure I was aware of any potential issues and gave excellent feedback. I think the atmosphere in this place was amazing from the time I entered until I left. Great reception staff and all around great experience. I really felt like I was heard and cared for . Definitely will return for all other dental needs.
Fran F.
First time at Highland Creek Modern Dentistry and I love it. I had a wonderful experience. The office was very clean and bright. The staff was very professional and Dr. Patel was so warm, personable and made sure I was comfortable. She was very thorough in explaining my dental needs and concerns. Loved her!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place.
Shayla F.
My son and I both went here for a routine exam and cleaning. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The office was very clean,open and practical. The front desk was very nice and knowledgeable in explaining some of my general insurance questions. Dr. Patel was also very nice and very thorough when explaining what she was doing and our treatment plans at the end. I could not have been happier with the service. The rest of my family will now go here too.
Nirali P.
Dr. Patel and her team are amazing! From checking in to getting my teeth cleaned, the entire process was seamless. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a dentist
Bethany R.
In a world where it takes forever to get any kind of medical appointment, I needed a reliable dentist- *quickly* - following serious trauma to my front tooth. Dr. Patel was beyond helpful and efficient in providing me the appropriate care that I needed as well as eased my nerves throughout the process. Our family has been looking for a new dentist for a while now and there is no doubt we will be continuing our dental care at this practice! Not to mention, her office space is beautiful, warm, and welcoming!
Allyson P.
I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Patel. She is so warm, personable, and thorough in her explanations of every step. It's clear that she's trying to do the best thing for you and what you're most comfortable, instead of racking up your bill (a problem I had with the last dentist I tried). Her office is lovely and modern, her staff all incredibly kind, and the scheduling and online portal tools are incredibly convenient. I am definitely a patient for life after my first visit today.
Janet K.
Dr Patel was amazing! Her office is so bright and fresh and clean and her patient care is the best I’ve ever experienced. I will never go to another dentist here in the Charlotte area.
Shannon C.
As a new patient, I felt well taken care of from beginning to end. Dr. Patel, Glenn and Melissa were all so caring and exemplified the true meaning of professional patient care. I will definitely be returning and referring family and friends to the Highland Creek Modern Dentistry practice.
Matthew F.
Best dental visit experience ever. Friendly informative staff. We found our new family dentist!
Megan B.
Such a wonderful experience (and I hate the dentist haa). This office was kind, helpful and enjoyable.
Went in for a cleaning and I was extremely pleased with how nice everyone was. The space looks really good and I will be returning with the rest of my family.
Alberto O.
Dr. Patel and staff are so awesome. Wonderful experience
Laurie H.
Everyone is so nice! By far, the best dental experience I’ve ever had. I’d recommend to all!

How Dental Crowns Work

How Dental Bridges Work

Dr Patel checking up a patient

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

  • Consultation and Examination: Our dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and oral health to determine if a dental crown is the right treatment for you.
  • Preparation: To ensure a perfect fit, your tooth will be gently reshaped and any decay or damage will be removed.
  • Impressions: Precise impressions of your teeth will be taken to create a custom crown that matches your unique smile.
  • Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being crafted in our advanced dental lab, a temporary crown will be placed to protect your prepared tooth.
  • Final Placement: Once your custom crown is ready, we will carefully remove the temporary crown and bond the permanent crown to your tooth, ensuring a seamless and comfortable fit.
  • Post-treatment Care: Our dentist will provide detailed instructions on caring for your new crown, helping you maintain a healthy and long-lasting smile.

The Process of Getting a Dental Bridge

  • Evaluation: During your initial consultation, our dentist will assess your oral health, examine the gap created by missing teeth, and determine if a dental bridge is an ideal solution for you.
  • Preparation: The teeth adjacent to the gap will be prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to make room for the bridge.
  • Impressions: Impressions of your teeth will be taken to create a custom bridge that matches the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
  • Temporary Bridge: While your permanent bridge is being fabricated, a temporary bridge will be placed to maintain your smile's functionality and appearance.
  • Fitting: Once your custom bridge is ready, our skilled team will ensure a proper fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal comfort and aesthetics.
  • Permanent Placement: Using advanced dental techniques, we will securely anchor the bridge to the neighboring teeth or dental implants, completing your smile restoration.
  • Follow-up Care: We will guide you on proper oral hygiene practices and schedule periodic checkups to monitor the health and longevity of your dental bridge.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can dental crowns be used for cosmetic purposes?

Yes, dental crowns can be used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a tooth. Crowns can cover a discolored, misshapen, or unsightly tooth, creating a more attractive smile.

Can dental implants be used instead of bridges?

Dental implants can be used as an alternative to bridges for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone, providing a stable and long-lasting anchor for a dental crown or bridge.

Can dental crowns and bridges be replaced?

Dental crowns and bridges can be replaced if they become damaged, worn, or no longer fit properly. Your dentist will evaluate the restoration and determine the best course of action.

Can dental crowns and bridges be whitened?

Dental crowns and bridges cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening methods because they are made of materials that do not respond to whitening agents. However, if you are interested in improving the color of your dental restorations, your dentist may be able to replace them with lighter-colored materials.

Are dental crowns and bridges covered by insurance?

Most dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of dental crowns and bridges. However, the amount of coverage will depend on your individual plan, so it's important to check with your insurance provider before getting treatment.

How long does it take to get a dental crown or bridge?

The process of getting a dental crown or bridge typically takes two to three appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the tooth or teeth, take impressions of your teeth, and place a temporary crown or bridge. In the second appointment, the permanent crown or bridge will be placed.

Are dental crowns and bridges painful?

Getting a dental crown or bridge typically involves some discomfort, but it should not be painful. During the procedure, your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. After the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity or discomfort, but this should subside within a few days.

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns and bridges can last for many years, typically between 5 and 15 years. However, the lifespan of the crown or bridge will depend on several factors, such as the quality of the restoration, the patient's oral hygiene habits, and the amount of wear and tear the restoration is subjected to.

What materials are dental crowns and bridges made of?

Dental crowns and bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of materials. The type of material used will depend on several factors, such as the location of the tooth, the amount of natural tooth structure remaining, and the patient's aesthetic preferences.
