What's the difference between a cosmetic dentist and a prosthodontist?

veneers doylestown pa | cosmetic dentistry doylestown paFirst of all, cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of esthetic treatments but is not a recognized specialty. Prosthodontics, on the other hand, is the only specialty recognized by the American Dental Association for crowns, dental implants, and esthetics.

Dentists who offer services like porcelain veneers and teeth whitening may refer to themselves as a cosmetic dentist. This simply means that they offer treatments that are largely cosmetic in nature. These services are valuable for improving the esthetics of your smile, but a cosmetic dentist may or may not have specialized training to perform these procedures.

As a dental specialty, the practice of prosthodontics requires three years of additional study beyond dental school. Intensive training and practical hands-on experience provide our doctors with in-depth knowledge related to the preservation of a healthy mouth, the dynamics of a smile, and the preparation of tooth replacement options.
