Cosmetic dentistry is a term generally used to describe any dental work which improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a patient?s smile. Many dentists refer to themselves as ?cosmetic dentists?, regardless of their specific education, specialty, training, and experience in this field. ?Cosmetic dentistry? is not a recognized formal dental specialty. The dental specialty most associated in improving the appearance and function of the teeth is Prosthodontics.
Why go to a self-proclaimed cosmetic dentist in Toronto when you could be treated by a Toronto prosthodontist - a true specialist?
Advanced specialty training, beyond completion of dental school, provides prosthodontists with skill and expertise in procedures and techniques including dental bridges, crowns, dental implants, missing tooth replacements, complete and partial dentures (both removable and fixed), digital dentures, veneers, whitening and more.
A prosthodontist also understands patient?s unique needs such as cleft palates, oral cancer reconstructions, TMD, TMJ or other jaw problems, traumatic injuries as well as snoring and sleep apnea appliances. A ?cosmetic dentist? in Toronto does not have the specific education, or training to understand their patients in the same manner.
Rigorous training and experience provide our Toronto prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, it?s function and the preservation of a healthy mouth.
As dentists with advanced specialty training, prosthodontists are experts in these fields.
