According to the Canadian Association of Prosthodontists, prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry involving the restoration of natural teeth and the placement of natural-looking substitute or prosthetic teeth.
It is one of the dental specialties recognized by the Canadian Dental association and requires several years of additional training after dental school in an accredited advanced dental education program.
Prosthodontists are experts in whitening and bonding techniques, colour matching, use of veneers to reshape teeth and enhance appearance, and the precise fabrication and placement of fixed prostheses such as crowns and bridges. Prosthodontists combine the mind of a health care professional with the hands and the eyes of an artist to create healthy natural-looking restorations.
We offer our patients a wide range of options to replace missing teeth depending on each patient’s needs. Whether a patient is a candidate for complete dentures, a removable partial denture, dental implants, a fixed bridge or combination of treatment alternatives, we can provide high-quality care.
Our specialists have an excellent understanding of dental laboratory procedures, and we work closely with dental technicians to ensure that each custom-made prosthesis is attractive and comfortable for the patient.
