PROSTHODONTICSProsthodontics, a dental specialty, pertains to the diagnosis, treatment planning and rehabilitation of clinical conditions in relation to missing or deficient teeth


Crowns cover or “cap” a tooth to restore the normal function and appearance of the tooth. Crowns may be made as all metal, porcelain fused to metal, or all-ceramic (porcelain). Crowns are indicated for teeth with very large fillings, teeth that have had a root canal, fractured teeth, worn teeth and misshapen and/or discolored teeth.

Fixed Partial Denture (Fixed Bridge)

A fixed bridge technique has been used with high success for many years. Teeth on both side of the missing space are prepared for a crown. Then a false tooth is joined to the crowns, and the entire bridge is cemented to the prepared teeth. The patient cannot remove the bridge. A fixed bridge can be a viable alternative to a dental implant.


Porcelain veneers are used to modify the shape and color of teeth. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the enamel of the teeth. The tooth preparation is limited to the enamel and usually involves only a few surfaces of the tooth, unlike a crown or cap.


Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Complete dentures replace all teeth and removable partial dentures replace some teeth. By matching each individual’s unique smile and bite, dentures can improve facial appearance and self-confidence. Dentures may also improve speech problems caused by missing teeth and will improve chewing.

Removable Partial Dentures

For patients missing several teeth, but not all of their teeth, a removable partial denture may be recommended. This type of denture uses the remaining teeth to hold or anchor the removable bridge in place.
