Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that makes dental prosthetics for missing or damaged teeth. These replacements include dentures, dental implants, crowns, and bridges.

Complete and Partial Dentures

Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your teeth and may even enhance your smile!

A complete denture is made after all your teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. Your dentist may provide you with a set of temporary dentures while you wait for your custom set to be made.

Partial dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. These devices are made of acrylic or plastic and consist of a denture base, which closely resembles the colour of your gums, and denture teeth, which are attached to a supporting framework. The partial denture then attaches to the existing teeth via a clasp or other retentive device.

Veneers, Crowns, or Bridges

Dental veneers are among the most common cosmetic dental procedures, with porcelain being the most popular material. This involves fitting a thin shell over your existing tooth to cover cracks, chips, gaps, or stains.

Crowns can save a tooth from extraction, by covering the damaged tooth and restoring your ability to eat. Unlike veneers which mainly serve a cosmetic purpose, crowns are often used when the tooth can’t be restored with a filling.

Bridges are the most extensive dental treatment of the three, as it forms a ‘bridge’ to fill in the gaps left by one or more missing teeth, or even an entire row of teeth. The most common type consists of a crown at both ends of the bridge that are placed over the teeth either side of the gap. Other dental bridges involve a more extensive process and require dental implants which hold the bridge in place.
