Indianapolis Prosthodontist for Superior Cosmetic Restorations
Prosthodontists specialize in restorative dentistry -- the art of building aesthetic restorations that are uniquely custom to fit your natural bite. Dr. Richard Stuart, our Indianapolis prosthodontist
, is dedicated to improving patients ’oral health over the long-term with quality, cosmetic crowns, bridges and dentures.
Dr. Stuart is experienced with using many types of materials to create new prosthetic teeth. Patients can choose from several types of restoration materials that are used by a lab or our in-house CEREC machine to create durable and natural looking fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges and dentures ( both removable or implant supported). For procedures requiring two visits, metal-free temporaries are placed to protect teeth and maintain a beautiful smile until the final restoration is delivered.
Our treatment options include:
Composite Resin – This pourable resin works to fill cavities and bonds to your natural dentition for a longer lasting cosmetic filling. Our Indianapolis dental office is amalgam free – no metal fillings are used to restore teeth.
Porcelain – This material is strong and can be easily matched to your natural tooth color when creating crowns or veneers to protect and improve your smile.
