Prosthodontics is an oral health specialty that provides treatment for missing or damaged teeth. Specifically, it uses dental restorations and oral prosthetics to transform your smile and improve your biting and chewing abilities.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, or you simply want to take steps to improve your oral health, prosthodontics can help.
At Thrive Dental, the team offers various prosthodontic services, including:
Veneers are paper-thin shells of porcelain that your dentist bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. Veneers cover up minor oral imperfections like pointy, abnormally shaped, or smaller-than-average teeth. With routine check-ups and good oral hygiene, veneers can last 12-15* years and sometimes longer.
Cosmetic dentistry uses cutting-edge aesthetic techniques to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures include teeth whitening, cosmetic gum contouring, and tooth-colored fillings.
Crowns and bridges are dental restorations that repair a broken, decaying, or missing tooth. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps bonded on top of a tooth, while bridges fill a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth.
Dentures replace some or all of your permanent teeth with a removable oral prosthetic. The team at Thrive Dental offers partial, complete, and implant-retained dentures.
Dental implants are small metal posts placed into your jaw. They replace your natural teeth and provide a foundation for restorations, like crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures. Implants are incredibly tough and can last a lifetime with optimal care.
If you have various oral health problems that require treatment, the team might recommend full-mouth reconstruction. Full-mouth reconstruction combines several different procedures to enhance the appearance of your smile and your oral health.
To determine if prosthodontics might benefit you, your Thrive Dental provider reviews your dental health history, takes oral X-rays, and conducts a comprehensive exam. If you have missing or damaged teeth, your provider can develop a custom treatment plan that restores your smile to a vibrant and healthy condition.
