Popular Treatments for Prosthodontics

This is a popular but limited list of treatments for Prosthodontics. Some Prosthodontics locations may provide more or less treatment options than others.

Dental Implants

Implants can be placed by either a general or specialist dentist. The type of dentist that performs the implant is less important than the training and experience of the dentist.

Composite Fillings

One of the most common treatments when visiting the dentist is a composite filling. It's often used to fill a void after removing tooth decay.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure usually used on a small portion of the tooth to improve its appearance. Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, or stained.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a fixed non-removable prosthesis which bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped dental cap which completely covers and caps the tooth or dental implant.

Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers are a very thin custom made shell that cover the surface of your tooth to improve the visual appearance. They help change the color, shape, size or length of the tooth.


Dentures are removable replacements for partial or all missing teeth. Depending on the design they can be bonded, clasped or screwed into place.

Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction is the removal of teeth from the jaw bone socket.
