So what is a prosthodontist?
To become a prosthodontist, a dentist must complete extra training in advanced dental procedures, and not just an extra unit or two of study. On top of the general dental accreditation (which takes around four years), a prosthodontist qualification requires a further three to four years of full time study.
Many dentists refer to themselves as ‘cosmetic dentists’ or ‘cosmetic specialists’. While these dentists have a special interest in cosmetic dental procedures, they haven’t necessarily completed any further examinable study. Unless of course – they are a qualified prosthodontist.
If you require a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure, seeking the services of a prosthodontist guarantees you are being treated by a dentist with advanced experience and craftsmanship.
Restorative Dentistry Sydney
Through the post-graduate training environment, a prosthodontist is exposed to years of advanced dental restorations and education procedures. A prosthodontist is the person most suitably qualified to coordinate any major smile restoration. This includes treatments such as:
- Dental implants
- Crowns and bridges
Cosmetic Dentist Sydney
While prosthodontists are expertly trained in the field of restorative dentistry, they are also interested in smile transformations from an aesthetic point of view. Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental treatment rapidly growing in popularity. A prosthodontist will apply their advanced knowledge and skillset to help you achieve the best possible cosmetic dental results. While you would expect a cosmetic procedure performed by a prosthodontist to be more expensive, this is not necessarily the case. Some of the more common and effective cosmetic treatments offered at Ironside Advanced Dental include:
- Teeth Whitening
- Complete Smile Makeovers
Modern dental advancements and technologies have also made cosmetic dentistry more affordable and accessible to everyone.
