A prosthodontist is a dental specialist who has undergone additional training in the restoration and replacement of teeth.
Prosthodontists are committed to the esthetic restoration of teeth including bridges, crowns, veneers, dental implants, dentures, partial dentures and tooth whitening.
Not all dentists have the training you need. Some perform reconstructive dental work after just a weekend course on a procedure. Prosthodontists understand the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacement.
You should see a Prosthodontist if you have complex dental needs, demand high esthetic results, need someone to oversee a procedure that involves more than one type of dental specialist, or want someone has undergone rigorous training in reconstructive and prosthetic dentistry.
