Prosthodontics focuses on specialized replacement teeth procedures that transform smiles. Whether you want minor fixes or full-mouth rehabilitation, prosthodontists have the skills to assess your unique case and craft beautiful, functional solutions. This article outlines cosmetic and restorative options for turning imperfect smiles into dazzling ones.

Goals for Smile Makeovers

Every smile journey begins by setting goals. Cosmetic goals involve making natural teeth look better through teeth whitening or thin coverings called veneers. Restorative goals mean replacing missing, damaged, or crooked teeth to improve bite function. Prosthodontists decide which treatments suit your needs after examining oral health and smile appearance goals.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

Teeth bleaching procedures with custom trays or in-office treatments can brighten smiles by several shades, restoring a more youthful look. Prosthodontists choose the best whitening methods to target discoloration without irritating gums or tooth structures. Take-home trays let you control the pace, while in-office bleaching brings quicker results with professional monitoring.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite material designed to cover the front sides of existing teeth to hide a variety of flaws. Small gaps, stains, chips, and uneven shapes often dramatically improve from precision-crafted veneers that mimic natural teeth. Veneers require little trimming of original teeth, unlike larger crowns. Prosthodontists examine veneers to verify proper material selection and sizing based on individual bites.

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer permanent tooth replacement - from a single missing tooth to an entire failing set. Prosthodontists surgically anchor biocompatible titanium posts into the jawbone. After the bone fuses to implants in some months, custom artificial teeth are attached to them, and the full chewing function is restored. Implants stop bone loss associated with missing teeth, unlike removable devices. They enable effective, stable tooth replacements.
