Cosmetic Dentistry (Prosthodontics)

Make Appointments & Get Care

What is Cosmetic Dentistry (Prosthodontics)?

A mouth makeover—or mouth rehabilitation—can include dental implants, cosmetic dental veneers, or treatment of gum disease.

Implants provide you with new teeth to replace missing or damaged ones. Dental implants not only look like real teeth, but they also have the stability, comfort, and functionality of real teeth.

Veneers are custom-designed and manufactured shells that attach to the surface of your real teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.

Periodontal therapy returns your gums and jawbone to normal health.

Eastman Dental and the University Dental Faculty Group have an entire team of experts to serve you.

Patient Stories

New Denture "a world of difference" for Patients

Dan Winagle’s dentist told him he needed extensive dental work and referred him to a specialist. The specialist referred him to Eastman Dental, where he’s been a patient for the last 15 years.

His untreated dental pain led to abscesses, ultimately needing several extractions. His dentists worked to keep as many of Dan’s teeth as possible, as they would serve as anchors for his new partial dentures. “Without anchors, dentures can slip out while chewing, talking, smiling or laughing, often causing embarrassment.

EIOH Specialists Completely Transform His Smile

Jeffrey Cookinham has to remind himself that it’s okay to smile now. And that he no longer has to break up much of his food, like a bagel, before he eats it.

Because after 34 years of doing just that, it’s been a hard habit to break. He was born with Ectodermal Dysplasia, a complex inherited disorder that often involves defects in the hair, nails, sweat glands and teeth.

Lying about Salad? Why this Man Did

Guy had full upper dentures, but over time they became loose due to natural changes in the jaw bone. In addition to always hiding his teeth, he would come up with ways to compensate, like lying about salad his whole life. “I always told people I didn’t like salads because I didn’t have the teeth to tear the lettuce,” he said.
