Many patients desire a more uniform and whiter smile. With the advances in dentistry today, there are treatments available that can create the smile you’ve always wanted. However, there is a specialized field of dentistry that is dedicated to the rehabilitation and maintenance of oral function and smile appearance. At Advanced Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, our prosthodontist Dr. Viet Ho provides quality treatments that impact the look and function of your smile.
Specialty vs. General Dentistry
Many general dentists provide the same treatments in cosmetics as prosthodontists. However, prosthodontists have completed an additional three years of advanced training that allows them to recommend the best procedures available to address your aesthetic concerns. During this training, they become specialized in handling dental and facial problems such as replacing missing teeth and restoring jaw structures.
Quality Dental Treatments
Prosthodontists are the specialists your general dentist will refer you to for extensive concerns with your smile. However, simple treatments such as crowns or dentures are fabricated with expertise only provided by someone who is a specialist in the field. Whether you are missing one or all teeth in your smile, prosthodontists can develop the best solution that fits your needs. Dental implants are a known treatment provided by these experts that ensure a lasting replacement for your missing teeth.
Treating Complex Cosmetic and Jaw Function Concerns
Prosthodontists do more than provide regular cleanings and routine dental care. These specialists also offer treatments for complex dental concerns that require more than just simple cosmetic dental treatments. Aesthetic reconstructive dentistry can utilize a number of procedures to restore smiles to their ideal function and aesthetic.
Treatments can combine crowns and veneers to address chipped or broken teeth. If you need dental implants, prosthodontists have the experience needed to outline effective treatment plans to reconstruct your smile.
When choosing between a general dentist who provides cosmetic treatments or a prosthodontist, consider the amount of dedication to the field and training involved. Before and after photos of other patients can also help you choose between one professional or the other.
