If you have ever needed to get a dental crown to restore a damaged tooth then perhaps you’ve already visited a prosthodontist before. Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses on treating damaged and missing teeth. From severe periodontal disease to traumatic injuries, there are many reasons why people face tooth loss and the goal of our Dr. Robert Korman and his team is to restore your smile through popular treatment options such as crowns, bridges and dental implants.
A prosthodontist is focused on ways to restore not just functionality back into your smile after tooth loss or damage but also how to improve your smile’s appearance. We focus on the effects that broken or missing teeth have had on your teeth and jaws and then decide which restorations will best correct these issues to restore chewing and speaking while providing you with long-term cosmetic benefits, as well.
A prosthodontist is a dentist who has received specialized training and additional education to be able to treat a variety of dental and facial problems. As a prosthodontist we understand that the goal is to replace missing teeth with a long-term, reliable restoration; however, we also understand that it’s just as important to have a restoration that resembles and feels just like a real tooth. Our dental team prides itself on providing state-of-the-art technologies and treatments to be able to restore functionality and esthetics back into your smile through the restorative services we provide.
