A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in restoring and replacing teeth. Prosthodontists receive an additional two to three years of training after completing dental school. Prosthodontists are trained in the restoration and replacement of teeth, and they can also fabricate dental prostheses.
Prosthodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with restoring missing or deteriorated teeth. At our dental office, our dentists have undergone additional training and possess expertise in performing complex restorative procedures.
Prosthodontists complete an additional three years of training after dental school. This training is focused on restoring and improving the appearance and function of teeth and mouth. Prosthodontists are experts in restoring smiles back to their original health and beauty.
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain made to fit over the front of the tooth. They’re used for a variety of reasons, including:
Dental implants are metal posts that are placed into the jawbone beneath the gums. Over a few months, the jawbone fuses with the dental implant, enabling it to provide a stable anchor for a replacement tooth. Much like a natural tooth root, your dental implant will be able to provide stimulation to the jawbone to keep it healthy and strong.
Crowns completely cover a tooth like a cap. When a tooth is cracked or has a large cavity, a crown can protect the tooth from further damage. Crowns are also used when a tooth has had a root canal. Crowns can be made from one of several materials, including metal alloys, porcelain, ceramics, and resin. Each material has different benefits, so talk to our dentist about the best option for your needs.
Crowns can be made in a dental lab or in the office. When the crown is made in the office, it will take only one visit to our dentist whereas crowns made in a dental lab would take at least two, with about two weeks of fabrication time between them. Also, a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth while the permanent crown is being made.
