Services provided for Houston patients during restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry is helpful for both aesthetics and function. When patients are dealing with many imperfections in their smile, the team at Vivid Dental in Houston can help. Restorative dentistry encompasses a number of procedures. One or more can be completed to help patients address concerns such as alignment, appearance, and lost teeth. Here are just a few of the restorative dentistry procedures used in Vivid Dental by Dr. Harpalani and his team:

Dental Fillings


When cavities occur, it is important to fill them with composite bonding. Composite bonding is preferred over silver amalgam filling as it is more aesthetically appealing.


Inlays and Onlays


Using porcelain inlays and onlays, Dr. Harpalani can restore a smile after tooth decay when it is too large for a filling but too small for a dental crown.


Dental Crowns


Crowns are made of porcelain and are bonded over natural teeth to protect them or to disguise imperfections such as permanently stained teeth or teeth that are broken. They are also used to restore a dental implant to act as a false tooth.




Fixed and permanent partial and full dentures are available at Vivid Dental. They are common restorations used to replace teeth in an economical way, and can provide patients an affordable alternative when most or all of the teeth in a dental arch are missing.




Straightening the smile has several benefits to the patient, improving the bite, function, beauty, and health of the smile. Using Six Month Smiles, patients can quickly straighten teeth near the front of the mouth for cosmetic purposes.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are alternative solutions to tooth loss, and are more affordable than dental implants and they are permanent, unlike removable dentures. They are made of porcelain, and they match the existing teeth for seamless integration into the dental arch.




Porcelain veneers and Lumineers are offered at Vivid Dental for patients who are seeking a more beautiful smile. These thin shells of porcelain are bonded over the front of natural teeth to cover imperfections and disguise problems such as misalignment, discoloration, and breakage.
