Baby boomers keep smiling due to techniques practiced by prosthodontists--specially trained in beautiful smiles through the restoration and replacement of lost teeth. Teeth become brittle and easier to break with age. They have thinner enamel, a darker appearance and get worn down. Bone loss and gum disease increases, roots become exposed by recession, and shifting of teeth can cause bite problems and jaw joint pain.
Your prosthodontist has the technology and knows how to turn back the clock and create and place natural looking teeth that are comfortable and function properly. Crowns and bridges, veneers, dentures and dental implants are a prosthodontist's special focus. Your prosthodontist is equipped to give you a thorough review of your dental condition and explain your options for restoring your smile.
