Why go to a prosthodontics for your cosmetic dentistry?

According to the American College of Prosthodontists (ADA), the term "prosthodontist" literally translates to mean "dealing with teeth replacement."

What Types Of Treatments are Provided By The Prosthodontists?


Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals primarily with replacement or restoration of lost or damaged teeth. Prosthodontists, therefore, are casually referred to as “smile architects”. These dentists are highly trained to ensure that everyone gets a good smile. They are trained not only in teeth, but also gums, facial features, and lips.
