Prosthodontic Dentistry – What Is A Prosthodontist?
If you have seen the show Extreme Makeover or even heard about it – you have probably come to understand that “Cosmetic Dentistry” has the power to change people’s lives. The reality is that the term can be confusing because many “cosmetic” dentists are not trained by any program recognized by the American Dental Association.
Prosthodontics is the only discipline of cosmetic dentistry that is recognized by the ADA.
A Prosthodontist is a post graduate degree in dentistry where by a skilled, artistically and technically trained dentist creates an anatomically correct smile- the right smile- that is uniquely crafted to fit your individual features and smile. Most dentists are not trained prosthodontic graduates of a dental school. Rather they take short continuing education courses and utilize trial and error experience to be able to understand how size, shape, color and symmetry all work together to create what a prosthodontist is trained in their post graduate work. It can be as simple as a little contouring or as extensive as a full mouth reconstruction using veneers, crowns, implants and bridges. Dr. Scheinfeld is trained to create the smile that implements the use of veneers, crowns, bridges and even dental implants to ensure that the right smile is a perfect fit, both functionally and aesthetically beautiful.
