Our office specializes in prosthodontics and restorative dentistry

Prosthodontics, also known as prosthetic dentistry, is the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and oral health of dental patients. Prosthodontics is one of the nine recognized specialties of the American Dental Association. Our office excels at smile makeovers, total mouth rehabilitations, and is happy to provide second opinions on complicated cases.

What is a Prosthodontist?

Restorative dentistry helps preserve natural teeth. The goal of restorative dentistry is to restore the function and integrity of the tooth structure, function, and health, while maintaining a natural appearance.

Dr. Valente is well versed in doing “teeth in a day,” utilizing many implant modalities to restore people that were once told they had no bone for any type of implants. Now these patients can have their teeth extracted, implants placed, and a screwed in temporary bridge that is stable all in one appointment. By doing this, a case that normally would take 18 months to complete is complete in 1 day.

Our goal is always to help our patients maintain their oral health and to care for and protect their natural teeth.

Maintaining oral health includes good home care and regular visits to our office for preventive care, which includes oral examinations and cleanings. Even with excellent care, however, teeth and gums can be susceptible to disease, infection, cavities, cracks, or other forms of damage. Comprehensive examinations of the mouth, teeth, surrounding gum tissues, and supporting bone structures help with early detection and treatment of problematic conditions.

Our office also specializes in cosmetic dentistry. This means that we not only pay attention to the health and function of your teeth, but we also pay close attention to aesthetics. We want you to maintain great oral health but we also want you to have a beautiful smile and the confidence to smile often!
