Prosthodontics is a speciality of dentistry referring to the restoration and reconstruction of teeth. This includes crown and bridge work, implants and dentures. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the team at Pinnacle Dental Group at Miranda to arrange a consultation.

When a tooth has a large filling, or is severely damaged by decay, we may recommend the placement of a crown to restore the smile. A crown can be a porcelain, metallic or ceramic tooth coloured sleeve that covers, or caps the tooth entirely to restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown will strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure. Individually fabricated and contoured, the crown will fit precisely within your mouth and will be aligned correctly with opposing and neighbouring teeth.
With the advancement of technology and new materials today, we are able to offer more cosmetically pleasing dentures to improve the oral health and appearance of our patients. Dentures can be composed of various materials including acrylic, metal/chrome, and a newer variation; Valplast. Inevitably everyone’s clinical needs are different, and therefore a suitable material will be recommended and our dentist will help you with these decisions.

Simply the best. The staff put you at ease the second you walk through the door. They go to great efforts to both support and thoroughly educate patients on all procedures. Matthew is the biggest legend on the planet. Pinnacle is gold. All the other other dental practices can go home.
Without the wonderful, caring treatment I’ve received - over a number of years - seriously, I would be toothless. Dubious gums are the problem but regular treatment has been effective and I cannot speak highly enough of this practice - especially the care given by Louis Kei.
A bridge is a solution to replace one or more missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth makes it easier to chew. It can improve your appearance and maintain steady placement of your remaining teeth. An artificial tooth otherwise known as a 'pontic' sits between two bridging teeth, and serves to fill the vacant space in your smile. The bridging teeth will sit over the remaining surrounding teeth to secure the artificial tooth in place.
Implants can restore function and aesthetics to your smile where you have from suffered tooth loss. Dental implants consist of a titanium rod that acts as an artificial tooth root in order to preserve jaw strength. An artificial tooth is soon attached to the abutment to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. Dental implants can support a number of dental prostheses including dentures to replace multiple missing teeth.
