Many people take for granted the freedom to smile and laugh without feeling self-conscious. If you feel embarrassed about missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or other reasons, you don’t have to hide your smile.
Dr. Andreina Dulanto and our team here at LPS Dental in Norwood Park offer prosthodontics to transform your insecurity into a beautiful smile. Restoring your teeth can be a life-changing boost to your confidence and self-esteem.
As an experienced prosthodontist with years of training and experience, Dr. Dulanto focuses on restoring and replacing your teeth with artificial components. Dr. Dulanto first creates a detailed treatment plan, mapping out the best course of action to restore your teeth’s functionality and comfort and give you a smile you can feel confident about. Once you agree on your treatment plan, we’ll begin the oral rehabilitation process to give you the smile and confidence you deserve.
Are Prosthodontics the Right Choice for Me?
Dr. Dulanto can help determine if prosthodontics are the proper treatment to address your dental concerns. A prosthodontic treatment plan may be right for you if you have:
- One or more missing teeth
- Temporomandibular disorder (TMJ)
- Congenital tooth anomalies
- Traumatic injury to the teeth or jaw
- Oral cancer reconstruction
- Snoring or sleep apnea
- Cosmetic reasons
Types of Prosthodontic Treatments We Offer
Prosthodontic treatments are fantastic solutions for many patients with missing teeth. As your prosthodontist, Dr. Dulanto matches you with the right course of treatment for optimum results.
Depending on your dental needs, cosmetic goals, and current oral health, we may recommend one of the following treatments:
Veneers are thin porcelain shells custom-made for your teeth to blend in with your smile. We bond the veneers permanently to the front of your existing teeth to disguise cosmetic issues like stains, chips, or unevenness.
Porcelain or metal dental crowns strengthen cracked, decayed, or damaged teeth. Dr. Dulanto can cement a crown over the damaged tooth to restore its original shape and functionality.
Porcelain dental implants are a natural-looking way to restore your smile after losing a tooth. Your prosthodontist implants the implant permanently into the jawbone with titanium roots.
A bridge may be a great option if you’re missing one or more teeth. Bridges help to reduce stress on your bite and restore the look of your smile. Dr. Dulanto cements the porcelain, gold, or alloy bridge to the teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap.
Partial or Complete Dentures
If you’re missing multiple teeth from trauma or gum disease, partial or complete dentures can restore your smile and confidence and improve your ability to chew and speak.
Prosthodontists also treat other issues. Jaw pain, sleep disturbances like snoring and sleep apnea, and even oral cancer reconstruction are all problems we can create a treatment plan to address.
