The Different Types of Prosthodontic Procedures

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Dr. Shiotsu
If you need a dental restoration, you may be considering prosthodontic procedures. This type of dentistry involves replacing or restoring missing teeth with artificial teeth. There are a variety of prosthodontic procedures available, so it is essential to understand the different options before making a decision. This blog post will discuss the different prosthodontic procedures and what each entail. Dental Veneers Dental veneers are among the popular types of prosthodontic procedures. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to your teeth' front surface. They can be used to improve your teeth' appearance and correct many different dental problems. For example, veneers can be used to change the color, shape, size, and length of your teeth. They can be used to close gaps between your teeth or to protect your teeth from further damage. Ceramic or Metal Dental Crowns A crown is a form of dental cap that covers a tooth. It can be made of metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all ceramic, or all resin. Your dentist will recommend the best dental crown for you based on the location of the tooth, your bite, and how visible the tooth is in your smile. Dental crowns are made of gold, nickel, or chromium alloys. It is the most vital type of dental crown and can be used on teeth under a lot of stress, such as molars. In addition, metal dental crowns are less likely to chip or break than other dental crowns. Dental Bridges These commonly replace a missing tooth or teeth by bridging the gap between two healthy teeth. This bridge comes with two crowns for the teeth, present on both sides of the gap. It also fixes an artificial tooth. Bridges can be either removable or fixed. Your dentist will advise on the suitable type for your mouth. Our clinic offers a wide variety of prosthodontic services. Whether you are searching for a simple teeth whitening procedure or a complete smile makeover, we can help. Book a dental appointment and see how we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams!...
