A major part of a Prosthodontist’s everyday work is related to cosmetics. Whether it is a single restoration or a more extensive rehabilitation, there is always a common denominator: the artificial component(s) has to blend harmoniously with the surrounding oral environment. In everyday practice, Prosthodontics and cosmetics go hand in hand. Any procedure prescribed to a patient not only has to be functional and comfortable but it also has to faithfully reproduce form and esthetics. Prosthodontists are playing a key role in helping patients maintain a healthy and attractive appearance. Prosthodontists are experts in whitening and bonding techniques, colour matching, use of veneers to reshape teeth and enhance appearance, and the precise fabrication and placement of fixed prostheses such as crowns and bridges. Prosthodontists combine the mind of a health care professional with the hands and the eyes of an artist to create healthy natural-looking restorations.
