Prosthodontists: The "Dental Architect"
Mullenbach Dentistry Works Closely With You To Restore Your Dental Health.
Prosthodontists like Dr. Mullenbach are often referred to as a "Dental Architect" because of the complexity of this treatment. The "architecture" we are referring to involves a very similar process of evaluation, design, consultation, and reconstruction to restore your dental longevity, functionality and esthetics.
Types of Prosthodontic Treatments Performed by Mullenbach Dentistry of La Crosse
There are a number of different treatments that can be performed by Dr. Mullenbach and his staff depending upon the evaluation of your dental health, Dr. Mullenbach's analysis, and what you as the patient feel is the best way to proceed:
This is considered to be the most advanced approach to restoring the dental health of patients who have one or more sections of teeth that are missing. Esthetic reconstructive dentistry involves utilizing the the existing bone structure and dental implantation.
Dental Veneers and Bonded Restorations
Patients who have chipped or cracked teeth, excessive dental wear and tear on their teeth, or severe discoloration can benefit from this treatment, resulting in well shaped teeth and a bright, white smile.
Ceramic and Metal Ceramic Dental Crowns
Typically lasting up to 10 years, crowns can be shaped to resemble the natural appearance of the rest of the teeth you have, and so they are very esthetically pleasing. Crowns are used to permanently "cover" the existing tooth.
A dental bridge is used to replace missing teeth. A bridge can be supported by another tooth or teeth, or supported by an implant. A dental bridge is a replacement for a removable partial denture.
There are a number of different kinds of dentures based upon the patient's dental health and existing teeth. Complete dentures are created for those who have lost all of their teeth due to trauma, or poor oral hygiene. Partial dentures can either be fixed, or they can be removable. As in dental bridges, fixed partial dentures rely on supporting and existing teeth and are permanent. Removable partial dentures also rely on supporting teeth, but can be removed.
