What is a Prosthodontist?


Who doesn’t want a flawless smile with healthy, attractive teeth? Sadly, many people have missing, broken or discolored teeth due to a traumatic accident, abnormalities, poor oral hygiene or part of the aging process. This can lead to low self-esteem and poor chewing ability. This is where a prosthodontist can help.

A prosthodontist is a cosmetic dentist who is an expert in the restoration and replacement of teeth to give people the teeth they’ve always wanted. They make smiles look beautiful and make teeth function, feel and look like natural teeth.

Prosthodontists receive years of additional specialized training after dental school and are qualified to offer state-of-the-art procedures and techniques to improve the appearance of unattractive teeth.

They are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth. Using their special skills, they work closely with a patient to develop a treatment plan and find a solution to their dental needs whether it is complex restoration or providing a better smile. Some of the wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures they can offer are:

  • Replacing lost and damaged teeth with crowns, bridges, partial and full dentures
  • Concealing defects and reshaping teeth with the use of veneers
  • Whitening discolored teeth
  • Using pioneering techniques to provide a more permanent solution by fitting implants
  • Closing unwanted gaps by using bonding technology

Dr. Sam Sherif, who is becoming known as one of London’s leading cosmetic dentists, uses these techniques. Dr. Sherif is a graduate of the Harvard University School of Dental Medicine. After dental school, he completed a full-time five-year residency in advanced graduate prosthodontics and the specialized study for implant, esthetic and full-mouth reconstruction. His research relating to implants include microbiology and systematic reviews.

Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, he is committed to providing the highest level of treatment in cosmetic dentistry to give people the best natural looking smile they can have to improve their appearance, boost their self-confidence and give them a better quality of life. His practice, Veritas Dental Care, in Harley Street, in the center of London, is considered among the best in the dental field and his expertise in the use of advanced technologies has made him a highly sought-after dentist.
