In addition to training as a general dentist, a prosthodontist has undertaken a specialist training programme in Prosthodontics consisting of three years of full time postgraduate education. Prosthodontists are specialists in the restoration of broken and replacement of missing teeth as well as cosmetic dentistry. They accept referrals from general dentists who feel that the complexity of a patient’s needs require the additional skills of a Prosthodontist to provide treatment in a predictable manner. They lead the planning of complex mutlidisciplinary cases to achieve the highest level of aesthetic result.
Due to their additional education and training, prosthodontists are experts in diagnosis, advanced treatment planning and restorative procedures. Prosthodontists restore oral function and improve the appearance of your smile by :

  • Repair of broken, worn or decayed teeth with crowns, veneers or onlays
  • Replacement of missing teeth with crown and bridgework on natural teeth and / or dental and zygomatic implants
  • Fabrication of removable dentures
