Q: What is the Difference Between a Cosmetic Dentist and a Prosthodontist?
A: When you’re trying to decide between a prosthodontist and a cosmetic dentist, it is important to know what type of treatment you are looking for and the amount of work and skill level required to reach the desired results. Prosthodontists are highly trained experts when it comes to tooth replacement and implant dentistry. They have a comprehensive understanding of all of the elements that go into creating beautiful, functional, long-lasting, and natural-looking results. While any dentist can take cosmetic dental procedure courses to become a cosmetic dentist, prosthodontists are one of only nine American Dental Association (ADA)-recognized dental specialties. To become a prosthodontist, a dentist must complete three additional years of training after dental school to learn how to become an “architect of the smile.”
