What Is A Prosthodontist?
If you unpack the root meanings of the term, a prosthodontist is exactly what it sounds like: someone who specializes in the prosthetic replacement (prostho-) of teeth (-dontist). By completing three additional years of education and training at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program in addition to dental school, Dr. Ace is better able to serve you.
What Are Dental Implants?
What Is The Difference Between Dental Implants And Dentures?
Where traditional adhesive-based dentures stick to your gums with the help of gels or pastes, dental implants are actually fused to your jawbone, resulting in a strong, sturdy feel similar to your natural teeth. Though we set the highest standard for our conventional dentures, they may come loose while eating or talking, and they do not prevent bone loss. Dental implants are permanent and help you maintain a healthy jawbone.
What Is A Dental Veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin piece of material, usually composite or porcelain, that we custom-size and -shape to protect and conceal your stained, misaligned, or damaged teeth. Dental veneers provide a less invasive option than dental crowns because they are bonded directly to your tooth’s enamel.
