Welcome to Carolina Center for Restorative Dentistry
Welcome to the prosthodontic dental practice of Dr. Mayur Patel, a friendly and highly skilled prosthodontist who treats teenagers and adults.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Mayur Patel, DDS, MS, has all the education of a dentist plus advanced training in restorative treatments. He is an expert in smile restorations and a go-to dentist for patients in all areas, including those in Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Goose Creek, Isle of Palms, and Ladson.
Dr. Patel performs most general dentistry services but specializes in creating beautiful and functional smiles for his patients. This is a bonus for anyone looking for quality dentistry with benefits. And our on-site lab helps him restore smiles faster and oversee your restorations from start to finish.
What Is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth, making smiles look beautiful and function the way they should.
After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA.
Many like to think of a prosthodontist as the "quarterback" of a dental treatment plan. They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental needs.
Our Approach to Comfortable, Quality Dentistry in Mt. Pleasant
Rather than approach dentistry tooth by tooth, Dr. Patel considers the function of your entire smile—the harmony and health of your smile and the way your teeth work together.
In our dental office, we consider your jaw health, your bite alignment, and we also emphasize prevention. This global approach is about the longevity and comfort of your smile—we want your teeth to last a lifetime! And we create a plan to accomplish this from your very first visit.
Prevention includes regular dental examinations and teeth cleanings to lower your risks for all preventable conditions, including cavities and gum disease.
If you decide to enhance the appearance of your smile through cosmetic dentistry in Mt. Pleasant, we have the techniques and technologies on hand to support our expert dentist as he fashions your new smile. This can mean anything from laser dentistry for faster healing to comfort technologies like nitrous oxide. Televisions in every room mean you can relax with your favorite program, and let us take care of your smile!

- Preventive dentistry—Exams, teeth cleanings, cancer screenings
