At Paradise Dental, we prioritize the significance of restorative dentistry in maintaining both oral and overall health. As proactive dentists, we take into consideration the entire chewing system, not just the teeth and gums, to ensure that our patients in Lakewood Ranch establish a healthy foundation for life through restorative dentistry.

As our patient, you can expect to have healthy teeth, a properly aligned bite that complements your smile, and a pain-free temporomandibular joint when opening and closing your mouth. We recommend various dental restorations such as crowns, fillings, implants, bridges, and more to enhance the beauty of your teeth while simultaneously strengthening and promoting their health.

Composite Fillings

Paradise Dental in Lakewood Ranch can complete composite fillings in just one dental visit using tooth-colored materials. The composite materials are carefully matched to the shade of your teeth, ensuring that the filling blends in seamlessly. With such a perfect match, only you and Paradise Dental will be aware of the dental work done.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are designed to fit your tooth precisely, similar to a dental crown. They are utilized when a filling is insufficient to support the tooth. Inlays are used to fill the space between the tooth cusps, while onlays go over the entire cusp.

Made from gold or porcelain these dental restorations look great and are excellent when it comes to repairing the structure of your tooth.

Dental Crowns

At Dr. Martins dental practice, dental crowns are utilized to restore severely damaged teeth, large cavities, teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, and also for dental implants and cosmetic dental procedures. These dental restorations are tailored to fit over the entire damaged tooth and are customized to the patient’s specific needs.

The process of getting a dental crown requires two dental visits. Initially, some enamel removal from the tooth is necessary, followed by a digital impression to ensure a precise fit. A temporary crown is then placed on the tooth while the permanent crown is being manufactured.

During your subsequent visit, Dr. Martins will examine the fit and color of the new restoration to ensure a comfortable and natural-looking outcome. If everything is satisfactory, the permanent dental crown is bonded into place, resulting in a naturally radiant smile.


Dental bridges are a popular restorative option used by dentists to replace missing teeth. If you have a missing tooth that is surrounded by abutment teeth, your restorative dentist in Lakewood Ranch may recommend a dental bridge to bridge the gap.

The process involves creating an artificial tooth that is secured by the adjoining teeth on either side of the gap. There are different types of bridges available to suit individual needs.

Traditional fixed bridges are the most commonly used type of dental bridge. They consist of a pontic or artificial tooth that is attached to two dental crowns, one on either side of the gap. The crowns are then placed over the abutment teeth to secure the bridge in place.

Maryland bonded bridges are another option. They consist of a pontic that is attached to a metal or porcelain framework. The framework is then bonded to the back of the adjoining teeth using a resin cement.

Cantilever bridges are used when there is only one adjoining tooth available to support the bridge. The pontic is attached to a dental crown, which is then secured to the single abutment tooth.

Implant-supported bridges are an option for those with multiple missing teeth. They are secured to dental implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone.

If you are considering a dental bridge, it’s best to schedule an appointment with your dentist to discuss your options and determine which type of bridge is right for you and your smile.

Implant Restorations

While dental implants can be a great solution for individuals missing teeth, determining if they are the right fit for you requires a professional opinion from a qualified dentist like Dr. Martins at Paradise Dental. 

Once it has been determined that you are a good candidate for dental implants, the skilled implant dentist and team in Lakewood Ranch will surgically insert a metal or Zirconia post onto or into your jawbone.

After the bone has properly fused to the post, an artificial tooth will be placed on top. The end result is a natural-looking tooth that blends in seamlessly with your smile, with only you and the team at Paradise Dental knowing that it is an implant.


Dentures are a convenient and comfortable option for individuals missing multiple teeth in an arch or row. Dr. Martins, your trusted Lakewood Ranch dentist, can use dentures to replace these teeth. Unlike bridges and crowns, dentures can be either implant-supported, fixed or removable.

In some cases, dentures may be recommended for patients with failing teeth, or for those who may not be suitable candidates for dental implants. With the help of Dr. Martins and the team at Paradise Dental, you can achieve a restored smile and improved quality of life with dentures tailored to meet your specific needs.


Regrettably, damaged teeth cannot self-repair, and in some cases, extraction is necessary despite Paradise Dental’s efforts to salvage the tooth.

If you find yourself in this situation, it’s best to schedule an appointment for tooth extraction. Depending on the tooth’s location, you may decide to replace it with an implant, bridge, or denture.

Dr. Martins can perform the extraction in a single dental visit, followed by a second visit to ensure proper healing.
