Welcome To Our Blog!
Dr. Rodriguez and his staff are pleased to announce the development of our very own blog page! Here you will find information regarding current events for our practice as well as the latest news in prosthodontics. For our first post, we would like to educate you on the advantages of visiting a prosthodontist rather than a cosmetic dentist.
Cosmetic Dentist VS. Prosthodontist
The major difference between a cosmetic dentist and a prosthodontist lies within the credentials they hold. Although a cosmetic dentist is capable of performing many procedures such as veneers, full mouth restorations, and dental implants for their patients, the amount of education and training they receive is far less than a prosthodontist.
The simple fact is that the majority of dentists are general dentists. Frequently, general dentists take a variety of courses to learn how to achieve aesthetically pleasing results for their patients and advertise themselves as experts in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Every dentist cares for the health, function, and aesthetics of their patient’s teeth, however, prosthodontists are the only true specialists in the field of dental aesthetics. In order to earn the title of a prosthodontist, one must take an additional three years of dental school for formal training in the restorative and aesthetic reconstruction of teeth.
Know Your Dental Provider
When you are in need of a cosmetic dental procedure, wouldn’t you be more comfortable visiting someone whose aim is to restore the form and function of your teeth so you can smile with confidence? No matter what your reason for visiting the dentist, it is important to research the dentist to learn more about the training they have received.
