Did you know around 120 million American adults are missing at least one tooth? This number is expected to grow in the next 20 years, which is why prosthetics has become increasingly popular in dentistry. At Smile Design Implant Centers, we provide our patients with custom-made prosthetics to replace their missing teeth so they can enjoy a better quality of life.

What are Dental Prosthetics?

Dental prosthetics are appliances used to replace missing teeth or cover up damaged or weakened ones. Some are removable, and others are fixed in your mouth for a permanent solution. Prosthetics are fabricated in a dental laboratory using state-of-the-art technology to increase durability and appearance.

Common types of dental prosthetics include:

How They’re Made

To make your custom prosthetic appliance, we will first take x-rays and impressions of your teeth. This allows us to get exact shape of your teeth and mouth so the appliance can properly fit. Once we have the mold, we will send it to a dental lab for fabrication. These prosthetics can be made of several kinds of material, including porcelain, composite resin, and zirconia.

Common Benefits of Prosthetics

Besides replacing missing teeth, dental prosthetics can be beneficial for patients in many other ways. Some of the advantages patients may notice include:

  • Stops bone loss
  • Improves quality of life
  • Better appearance
  • Prevents remaining teeth from shifting
