Prosthodontics and Missing Teeth

Teeth are for more than just biting and chewing; they play an important role in the health and function of your mouth, jaw, and face, as well as your overall health. Broken, missing, damaged, or severely decayed teeth can affect how you speak, the foods you eat, and even your social and emotional health.

Prosthodontic services from Monarch Dental can help restore damaged or missing teeth so you can eat, speak, and smile normally. At Monarch Dental, we understand that getting proper dental care can be stressful for some people, especially for those embarrassed by their dental health, so we make it easy and convenient for you to get all of the treatment you need for a beautiful smile in one place. From implants and bridges to fillings and routine cleanings, Monarch Dental can help you get–and keep–the healthy smile you deserve.

What is a prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist specializes in replacing missing or damaged natural teeth with false–or prosthetic–solutions. Dental prosthetics like crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants can be used to address cracked teeth, abnormal gaps between teeth, and improve your dental health if you’ve lived for a long time with a missing tooth.

What are the treatments that prosthodontists perform?

While a chipped or missing tooth due to injury is one of the most common reasons for dental prosthetics, prosthodontists can perform everything from bonding a tooth to full facial reconstructions.

Prosthodontists can treat oral health issues like:

  • Enamel erosion
  • Gingivitis
  • Advanced periodontitis
  • Damaged, decayed, or uneven teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Unevenly spaced or misshapen teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Bone deterioration

Here are some of the most common procedures performed by prosthodontists:

Dental implants 

Dental implants are used to replace missing or extracted teeth using tiny metal posts. The posts are implanted into the jaw to serve as replacement tooth roots, then capped with an abutment and a crown, or artificial tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several.


Crowns are dental prostheses that are used to replace or repair a severely damaged tooth. Crowns can be made from many different materials and serve the same function as normal teeth with proper cleaning and care.

Dental Bridges 

Dental bridges can be used to replace several missing teeth. A dental bridge is a set of crowns that is held in place by being attached to the remaining natural teeth on either side of a gap.


Full or partial dentures are custom-made sets of porcelain teeth that rest on top of the gums. They are a removable tooth replacement solution held in place with dental cement, and they help patients with missing teeth eat, speak, and chew normally while preserving the facial structure. 


Cosmetic procedures like veneers, crowns, and whitening can be used to perfect a smile that may have irregularities like discoloration, uneven spacing, or misshapen teeth. While some procedures are purely cosmetic, others can help straighten teeth, improve alignment, and protect your dental health.


Dental bonding uses tooth-colored resin to repair chipped or cracked teeth so they can remain strong and function properly.
