Beyond Mere Dentistry
What is a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a specialist who has received two to three additional years of education and training after dental school at an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited institution. He or she is a specialist of the art of treating damaged and missing teeth. The additional training focuses on mastering the techniques necessary to correct imperfect smiles and dysfunctional aspects of the mouth. As such, Dr. Levine provides among the best restorations the Willamette Valley has available.

In simple terms, prosthodontists are the masters of mouth rehabilitation. Similar to a closing pitcher or quarterback, a prosthodontist is the expert of a team that knows how to make your smile ideal and rehabilitate your mouth back to a healthy state again.

When it comes to your smile, putting your trust in a prosthodontist is the wisest choice you can make. It is always best to have a job done right the first time, and that is why you should trust in someone who has extended training, an additional three years of schooling, and who is considered a master of mouth reconstruction. It is simply the smart choice.

What dental procedures does a prosthodontist perform?

As a dentist specializing in dental prostheses, Dr. Levine is an expert at the highly complicated dental rehabilitation procedures such as crowns, caps, bridges, veneers, complete or removable partial dentures, dental implants, sleep apnea and snoring appliances, and TMJ pain.

A prosthodontist also is a master of dental revision procedures. When a patient doesn’t receive the results he or she was expecting from other dental treatments, many are referred to Dr. Levine in order to correct mishaps and to provide them the smile they deserve.

How is a prosthodontist different from a “cosmetic dentist”?

Though many dentists call themselves “cosmetic dentists,” the American Dental Association does not include cosmetic dentistry as one of the nine dental specialties it recognizes.

With that said, with Dr. Levine's extensive three years of additional training, countless continuing education and experiences with "cosmetic dentistry" procedures would probably qualify him as the closest thing to a “cosmetic dentist” as there can be. By way of comparison, other so-called “cosmetic dentists” who are not prosthodontist may only receive training on complicated procedures from a seminar or a series of courses that last a few days or perhaps weeks.

Will the Dr. Levine complete all of my required treatment?

Dr. Levine is considered a master architect of dental procedures. It is he who directs the vision of your final outcome, both the cosmetic aspect, as well as the medicinal and functional components.

Often other dental experts and staff may participate in your treatment, but only under strict supervision of Dr. Levine. Every step along the way is overseen by him.
