The Art and Science of Dental Restoration

Prosthodontics is a distinguished dental specialty, officially recognized by the Canadian Dental Association and the American Dental Association. It is the definitive area dedicated to aesthetic, reconstructive, and implant dentistry—three realms where artistry and science converge for exceptional dental solutions. A Prosthodontist's expertise includes extensive training in cosmetic and restorative procedures such as crowns, bridges, dentures, and veneers. This specialty also encompasses the complex care required for dental and facial birth and developmental defects as well as trauma recovery.

At Vivid Prosthodontics, our dedication to the field of Prosthodontics goes beyond mere treatment—it's our mission to enhance and transform lives. Our specialists undergo rigorous training that spans clinical practice, material sciences, advanced laboratory techniques, and interdisciplinary collaboration with other dental and medical professionals. It's this comprehensive training that shapes our Prosthodontists into the architects of smile design, ensuring each customized dental replacement is meticulously crafted for perfect fit, function, and compatibility with your unique biology.

What is Prosthodontics?
