Today more than ever, there is a desire for a healthy, bright and natural looking smile. Broken, decayed, worn or discolored teeth can mar an otherwise beautiful smile. Through prosthodontics, they can be restored to their natural beauty and strength.
A prosthodontist is a dental specialist uniquely qualified to restore the appearance of your smile. A prosthodontist receives extensive training in veneers, crowns/caps, bridges and correction of imbalances of a smile.
Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth by acting as an anchor for a replacement tooth or “crown” or a set of replacement teeth. Dental implants have been used for treating missing teeth for more than 50 years and is recognized as an effective treatment choice.
Implant-supported crowns and bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth as opposed to conventional fixed bridges or partial dentures, but only a specialist will know for sure.
Over time, denture wearers may experience more problems with the fit and installation of their dentures due to shrinkage of the jawbone. Dental implants may be a solution to stabilize the denture to provide a more comfortable and secure fit.
