Aesthetics and Oral Health: What is a Prosthodontist?

Greenwood Village’s yellow pages section lists dozens of dentists offering cosmetic work in the area. But what differentiates a general dentist from a prosthodontist? It’s all about specialization. Prosthodontics is a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). In order to be called a prosthodontist, a dentist must complete two to three years of additional training and study in replacing missing teeth, cracked teeth and aesthetic issues using biocompatible materials and advanced cosmetic techniques. This differs from the term “cosmetic dentist,” which can be used much more loosely, for example, by general dentists who may do occasional tooth whitening or dental bonding but have not received formal accredited training in this field.

Given this, it almost goes without saying that, as a cosmetic dentist and prosthodontist, Dr. Aldo Leopardi delivers care and results that are in a different league than most cosmetic dentistry practices. Dr. Leopardi’s range of services falls into two categories: (1) cosmetic dentistry procedures that only a prosthodontist can perform, and (2) cosmetic procedures offered by other practices, but without the expertise of a prosthodontist. As such, it pays to visit Dr. Leopardi’s prosthodontic practice for any of your cosmetic dentistry needs.

Dr. Leopardi specializes in:

  • Dental bonding – Shaping a tooth with composite material to repair cracks and close gaps.
  • Dental implants – Replacing a missing tooth with a prosthetic tooth that is anchored into the jawbone, producing greater aesthetic results and preventing future damage to adjacent teeth and your facial bone structure.
  • Tooth whitening – Bleaching treatments that go beyond removal of surface stains and whiten the intrinsic color of your tooth.
  • Porcelain veneers – Permanent application of a thin restorative material to your teeth to straighten your smile, close gaps and repair cracks.
  • Full smile makeovers – A customized treatment plan that combines several cosmetic procedures for a completely new smile.

For advanced aesthetics and artistry for your smile, choose Dr. Leopardi, an experienced prosthodontist.
