A prosthodontist is often referred to as the “quarterback” of a dental treatment plan. They have training in the management of complex dental restoration, including rehabilitation of patients with a traumatic injury and reconstruction for those who have inborn facial deficits.

Prosthodontists can fix broken, discolored, and misshapen teeth. Their other specialties include:

  • Installing ceramic aesthetic crowns or caps
  • Applying veneers to hide tooth defects
  • Bleaching of discolored teeth for a bright, white smile
  • Bonding to alter tooth shape or close gaps
  • Replacing teeth with dental implants
