Your healthy smile is our top priority. Dr. Makram offers a comprehensive array of options for quality restorative dentistry in North Naples and tooth replacement solutions to renew smiles spoiled by decay, disease, or trauma. He’s concerned with form and function, so you can expect a smile that looks as good as it feels.
We use tooth-colored fillings and all-porcelain crowns to esthetically restore compromised teeth and renew oral health. If you need replacement teeth, we offer long-lasting, attractive crown and bridgework, dentures, and dental implants. Dr. Makram also performs full-mouth reconstructions to rejuvenate severely damaged smiles. If dental visits make you anxious, ask about oral sedation to calm your nerves and promote relaxation.

When you have a cavity, the last thing you want to do is advertise that fact by having a metallic blob placed on your tooth. With Dr. Makram, you don’t have to worry about how your fillings will look and feel. Our tooth-colored fillings allow you to keep more healthy tooth structure and help prevent future infection, all while blending in with your tooth enamel. The biocompatible material can be shaded to match your tooth, so only you and Dr. Makram will ever know that tooth decay was ever there.
For more extensive decay or damage that tooth-colored fillings just can’t fix, we can create and place durable dental crowns. For consecutive missing teeth that are surrounded by healthy teeth, we can place dental bridges, which literally bridge the gap in your smile and enable you to eat and chew with those teeth again. These restorations appear lifelike and allow us to bring back your teeth’s strength, function, and beauty even after disease or trauma.
At many other dental practices, you would have to wait for weeks while your crown is being fabricated and then return to have it placed. But at Dr. Makram’s office, we have the capability to design and mill your crown in-house. As a result, you could have your custom crown placed during the same appointment, saving you precious time and ensuring that you’re completely happy with your crown from the start.
Over many, many years, dentures continue to be a popular choice for replacing missing teeth, but that doesn’t mean they’ve stayed the same. Advancements in technology and materials mean that they are more realistic and comfortable than ever before. Whether you’re missing multiple teeth in different spots along your top or bottom arch or you’ve lost all of them, we have a denture solution that can help you regain your smile.
Considered the gold standard for tooth replacement, dental implants do more than just address the top, visible portion of your missing tooth. They mimic your natural tooth structure, restoring the root as well, which is crucial for better long-term oral health. Dr. Makram has advanced training for all stages of the implant process, meaning that you don’t have to take extra time and effort to go to a specialist’s office.
Sometimes, the decay or damage to a tooth requires more care than a tooth-colored filling, but it doesn’t need a dental crown. That’s where onlays and inlays come into play. Known as “partial crowns,” these are bonded to the teeth, improving their strength and protecting against decay down the road. These restorations used to be made of gold or silver, but we use tooth-colored materials such as porcelain that are durable and look natural next to your remaining healthy tooth structure.
Traumatic events, such as car accidents or domestic abuse, can leave your mouth in really bad shape, but there is hope! Dr. Makram and our team of caring professionals can help you rebuild a healthy smile through full-mouth reconstruction. We can create a treatment plan designed to meet your specific needs, and we’ll walk you through the entire process. We can also ensure that you feel comfortable the entire time using reliable sedation methods.
Whenever possible, Dr. Makram will do everything he can to preserve and save your natural teeth. However, there are times when an extraction is the only or best option to keep your smile healthy. In those cases, you can rest assured that your care and comfort are our first priorities. As a result, we’ll help you feel relaxed throughout the procedure and then go through your replacement options if necessary.
The joint located just in front of your ears, called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), is critical for daily functions, including chewing your food and speaking. When something is wrong with the TMJ, it can cause jaw pain or stiffness, headaches, clicking noises, and other unpleasant symptoms. Luckily, Dr. Makram provides treatment for TMJ disorders that can relieve your pain and allow you to get back to full strength, only using a simple oral appliance that is worn at night.
Are you experiencing severe oral pain? Do you have a chipped or knocked-out tooth? In your times of need, you can count on our team at Dr. Makram’s practice to offer fast relief and treatment that will get your smile back on track. If you or your loved one is ever in a dental emergency, whether due to an injury or dental problem, just contact our office in Naples, and we’ll see you as soon as possible.
We realize that some people experience very real fear when going to the dentist. That’s why we offer multiple sedation methods to help our patients feel relaxed and completely at ease in the chair. Our techniques include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation, all of which can be managed in our office. Depending on the severity of your anxiety and the complexity of the procedure you’re receiving, we can choose the method that will best remove all your worries and enable you to get the dental care you deserve.
