Prosthodontics literally means “replacement tooth,” but this area of dentistry encompasses much more. It involves a range of restorative dentistry. Gambrills, Crofton, Annapolis, Baltimore, Bowie, and the greater Washington DC area patients can enjoy their smiles again.
There is no one solution that fits the needs of every dental patient. At Bingham-Lester Dentistry, prosthodontic care is as unique as you are. Call 410-885-6522 to schedule a consultation.
Crowns and bridges
A dental crown is a covering of strong material such as porcelain or zirconia that encloses the visible portion of a tooth. A crown provides strength and preserves remaining tooth structure.
A dental bridge spans the gap left by one or several adjacent missing teeth. The bridge consists of artificial teeth, anchored into place by crowns on the teeth on either side of the space.
Dentures can be a sound prosthodontic solution for multiple missing teeth or for the edentulous (toothless) patient. Dr. Bingham-Lester designs customized partial and full denture solutions. Please see the Denture page on this website for detailed information.
Dental veneers in Gambrills are not replacement teeth, but are considered to be prosthetics – artificial body parts. Veneers modify the color and shape of natural teeth, and improve the appearance of minor misalignment.
A dental implant looks, functions, and feels more like a natural tooth than any other prosthodontic available at this time. Dental implants in Gambrills mimic a tooth root, providing a strong, stable foundation for a porcelain crown
Most adults grind their teeth at some point in their lives, related to stress or physical issues. Imbalance of the temporomandibular joint can also be triggered by a missing tooth, malocclusion, or cross bite, so treatment of TMJ disorders (TMD) falls into the category of prosthodontics.
