How Visiting a Prosthodontist Can Benefit Your Smile
Posted on 2/21/2022 by Dr. Shiotsu
81% of people aren't pleased with how their teeth look in photos. The first thing people say they notice about someone is their smile. Whether you are wanting a complete makeover for your smile or just a small upgrade, visiting a prosthodontist can benefit your teeth in several ways. A prosthodontist can replace missing teeth, correct alignment issues, improve your natural teeth' appearance, and treat complicated cosmetic and restorative issues.
What is a Prosthodontist?
Your first thought probably is to go to the dentist if you are having issues with your gums, teeth, or oral health overall. But, there are several different specialties concerning dental care such as orthodontics, general dentistry, and prosthodontics. Prosthodontics focuses on the replacement and restoration of teeth. A prosthodontist undergoes at a minimum, three years of additional training to allow them to treat complex dental issues in patients.
When You Should Visit a Prosthodontist
If you have an issue that a general dentist can't find a solution to, they will often refer you to a prosthodontist. With modern techniques, advanced training, and state-of-the-art technology available today, a prosthodontist can replace one or two missing teeth or perform a whole smile transformation. Your smile is the first thing that someone notices about you when they first see you. What message is your smile sending? If you want the smile of your dreams, you need the highest quality of treatment for your dental issues and should schedule a visit with a prosthodontist.
