To become a prosthodontist, dentists have to complete three additional years of in-depth study at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program in order to become a specialist in their field. This extra training helps prosthodontists to hone their technical and artistic abilities to provide patients with a superior level of care. Prosthodontists are regularly considered leaders of dental teams, helping other dental professionals to find solutions to complex dental issues. Because they are trained in all general, restorative, preventive, cosmetic, and orthotic dental techniques, prosthodontists are uniquely prepared to handle complex oral restorations, saving patients time and money in the long run.
The goal of prosthodontics is to restore form and function to the smile, helping patients to maintain their oral health while enjoying beautiful teeth. By carefully examining patients and working closely with the referring dentist, we can create a customized treatment plan for each patient, helping them to reach their dental goals. For example, a prosthodontist may recommend receiving dental implants to replace teeth damaged through prior oral decay and other corrective prostheses, such as dental crowns, to restore proper bite force to help a patient live a better life. Prosthodontists are also experts in cosmetic dentistry, offering advanced services like veneers, cosmetic bonding, inlays and onlays, and teeth whitening. Whatever your dental needs, our Westchester prosthodontists can help you enjoy the smile of your dreams.
