Prosthodontist Los Angeles
Having one or two missing teeth is perfectly normal if you are seven or eight years old. If you are an adult, missing teeth can result in embarrassment, self-consciousness, and lowered self-esteem. You may be less apt to smile for photos or even speak to strangers if you have tooth-sized gaps in your mouth. If you have decayed or unsightly teeth, you may feel this same way and try to hide them from others. There is no need to hide these missing or damaged teeth, because our prosthodontist in Los Angeles can help.
A prosthodontist specializes in restoring damaged teeth and replacing missing ones. Occasionally patients may require both these procedures be performed. In addition to four years of dental school, our Los Angeles prosthodontist has undergone three more years of specialized training in tooth replacement and reconstruction. Prosthodontists most commonly provide patients with dentures, bridges, crowns, implants, and veneers, along with other cosmetic dentistry options.
Los Angeles Prosthodontist
No matter the damage your teeth have suffered, our prosthodontist in Los Angeles can arrange a treatment plan to fit your needs. If your teeth are stained or discolored from food, drink, or heredity, our in-office teeth whitening treatments can yield dramatic results in as little as one visit. Physical trauma or a sports injury may result in a tooth chipping or breaking. Our prosthodontist can affix a porcelain crown or provide you with veneers to fill in any cracks or lengthen your tooth height.
In the best case scenario, your teeth would only need repairing, but often, your teeth need replacing. Whether they have fallen out from old age, gum disease, tooth decay, or a physical accident, our Los dentist can help your teeth look their natural best once again. Ways to replace missing teeth range from bridges, crowns, full or partial dentures, to dental implants. Over the past decade, prosthodontists have greatly improved dental implant techniques, and these are an especially long-lasting, durable solution for replacing missing teeth.
Whether your dental problems involve your gums or your teeth, our Los Angeles periodontist and prosthodontist are specialized experts able to assist you with these issues.
