How A Prosthodontist Approaches Designing A New Patient's Smile

If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and been unhappy with your smile, or had an accident or trauma that has caused damage to a tooth or multiple teeth, then you would likely benefit from seeing a prosthodontist. We have received extra years of training beyond dental school focused on restoring and replacing teeth. Those additional years of dental training with a highly specialized focus are what should give you a sense of comfort when you walk through our doors at Victor Prosthodontics. Simply put – we can fix your smile.

Our goal at Victor Prosthodontics is to create a customized solution for you – helping you to attain the most attractive, natural-looking smile possible through advanced prosthodontic care. And it all starts with how we approach treatment planning for our patients. We are the leaders of the treatment plan, and we often work in close coordination with general dentists (if one has referred you to our dental practice), dental specialists (periodontists, endodontists, oral surgeons, etc.) and your own physicians.

Each and every patient is a unique individual and we take our time to listen to your concerns and questions. This allows us to better fulfill your expectations and build a strong, solid relationship built on trust.

When we create a treatment plan for a patient’s new smile, there are a number of factors that play a role in our approach to the design:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Lip Support
  • Gingiva (Gum) Display
  • Midline
  • Proportions
  • Contours
  • Texture

The methods we use to create a new smile for you vary, and may include the use of dentures, veneers, crowns or restorations over dental implants. Our experience and expertise allows us to truly customize each smile according to your specific needs. But creating an attractive and natural-looking smile isn’t just about the cosmetics or esthetics. Function is also vital, because if you’re unable to chew, swallow or speak properly – a beautiful smile alone won’t do you any favors. And for that reason we also take your phonetics (speech) and occlusion (bite) into consideration.

Lastly – having a beautiful, functional smile is very important for both your health and your self-esteem. We apply all of our tools and knowledge to creating a smile that you deserve. We look forward to seeing you in our state-of-the-art practice. For a consultation, click here!
