Dr. Schmitt Welcomes You
Voted One of the Top Prosthodontists in Orlando Since its Inception in 2004.
“With heartfelt compassion and contagious enthusiasm, we commit to providing a healing dental experience which will change lives through honest communication and thoughtful, ethical care.”
- Dr. Scott Schmitt
General Dentist or Prosthodontist ?
Just what is the difference between a general dentist and a prosthodontist? While there are many similarities between these two professions, prosthodontists have gone three additional years of training to learn advanced techniques of restoring damaged or missing teeth.
As one of the twelve ADA-accredited dental specialties, the field of prosthodontics focuses on comprehensive diagnosis and rehabilitation of the health, function, and appearance of teeth. As a result, our prosthodontist Dr. Scott Schmitt is not a general dentist, but a dental specialist, and is passionately dedicated to serving the dental needs of the greater Orlando area.

When you lose a tooth, the gap in your smile does more than just affect your appearance. Dental roots provide stimulation to your jawbone to keep it strong and healthy. This lack of stimulation leads to the bone tissue in your jaw to begin to deteriorate. As this atrophy continues it can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, which can result in further tooth loss. Dental implants are the only treatment in modern dentistry that act as artificial dental roots, effectively ceasing bone loss and providing unparalleled stability for an implant-supported restoration.Learn More about Dental Implants
A smile negatively affected by chipped, worn, or slightly crooked teeth can be given a healthy, symmetrical appearance with the help of custom-crafted porcelain veneers. Using state-of-the-art dental ceramics that are engineered to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel, veneers are color-matched to blend seamlessly to the shade of your smile. For patients with relatively minor cosmetic issues such as stubborn discoloration that does not respond to professional teeth whitening treatment from their general dentist, veneers can provide versatile smile enhancement.Learn More about Porcelain Veneers
A tooth compromised due to trauma or decay can cause a range of issues from difficulty chewing and speaking to constant pain. Crafted from the same cutting-edge dental ceramics as veneers, crowns can be placed over a tooth to protect it from further damage and in many cases prevent the need for extraction. Crowns can strengthen teeth that have been significantly damaged, as well as protect a tooth following root canal treatment. A single missing tooth can also be restored with an implant-supported crown, filling the gap in your smile and restoring your oral health.Learn More about Dental Crowns
