Prosthodontics is a discipline of dentistry that deals with the replacement of missing teeth and the soft and hard tissues around them with prosthetics (crowns, bridges, dentures) that can be fixed or removable and can also be supported and maintained by implants. A prosthodontist is a dentist who specialises in the use of bridges, dentures, or prostheses to replace lost teeth and associated mouth or jaw structures. Following dental school, they complete an extra three years of study to specialise in this profession.
Without the use of prostheses (replacement teeth), there are numerous options for improving the appearance of teeth, including whitening, adding tooth-coloured composite material, or manually contouring teeth to make them appear more level and balanced. Smile restorations using prosthetics can help patients obtain beautiful smiles and improve oral health, especially if their demands are more complicated. Porcelain crowns, veneers, fixed dental bridges, and implant-supported replacement teeth are just a few of the effective and long-lasting prostheses we may use to improve the appearance of your smile.
However, if you have complicated dental demands, dental prosthetics are very successful at providing you with a new smile and improving your oral health. In many circumstances, aesthetic dental treatment using prosthodontics is critical in addressing problem areas and assisting patients in achieving their desired appearance. At The Cosmetic Clinic, we are experts in using prostheses to restore smiles both aesthetically and functionally.
