Prosthodontic Treatments Include:
Dental Implants – Dental implants are designed to replace natural teeth.
Dental Veneers – Veneers are porcelain or ceramic covers that are bonded to natural teeth.
Dental Crowns – Crowns can be made from porcelain, metal or a combination of materials to mimic the natural tooth’s crown.
Dental Bridges – Bridges are used to support dental implants.
Complete Dentures – Dentures can restore functionality to the mouth.
Partial Dentures – Partial dentures can enhance the aesthetics of the smile and improving chewing.
