|About||The Advanced Dental (Prosthodontic) practice of Dr. Purnima Shahani|
A Prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth. Dr. Shahani has received three years of additional training after dental school at Virginia Commonweath University in a Prosthodontic program that was accredited by the American Dental Association.
Prosthodontists are the experts in dental rehabilitation and have mastered many procedures including: crowns, caps, bridges, veneers, removable partial dentures, dentures and dental implants.
The Prosthodontist is best viewed as the "architect" of your dental project, who has the vision of your final outcome, both the esthetics of your smile and the improved function of your bite. Often other dental specialists may participate in your treatment to help establish a solid foundation for your restorations.
Dr. Shahani will develop a treatment plan customized for each individual patient, and she will determine if adjunctive procedures by another doctor are necessary.
