What we can
do for you
Our practice philosophy is to provide patient-centred care. Our goal is to listen to your dental needs, (often in conjunction with your dental practitioner) and accurately diagnose the cause of your dental problem. A treatment plan will be formulated for your approval. We then strive to provide the highest quality prosthodontic care and treatment, using the best materials available and giving you the best functional and aesthetic result possible. Our team is headed by a fully-trained prosthodontist who is a dental specialist that has completed a minimum of a 5-year undergraduate dental degree, 2-years working in general practice, and a 3-year full-time postgraduate degree and numerous continuing education courses.
At Specialist Prosthodontics, patients are often referred by their general dentist, however, a referral is not essential. Please contact us if you would like to make an appointment.
crowns, bridges, veneers
We provide the full range of conventional crown, bridge and veneer treatment options. Often, multiple treatment options are available and we will advise if a porcelain veneer, ceramic crown, ceramic or conventional bridge is the best option for you.
At the initial consultation, a comprehensive and thorough dental examination and assessment will be completed. We work closely with other specialists to provide you the best treatment outcome and you may be referred to a Periodontist or Oral maxillofacial surgeon for their surgical expertise.
The dental implant technology available at our Brisbane clinic allows for the replacement of any number missing teeth by supporting crowns and bridges with dental implants for suitable patients.
As a top-rated prosthodontic clinic in Brisbane, we use state-of-the-art digital impression technology also know as a 3D intra-oral scanner (Trios 4, 3 Shape: here) that captures clear and highly accurate intra-oral data quickly and comfortably often meaning impression material may not be required.
We offer a full range of dentures from a new complete set of dentures to partial Cobalt-chromium and acrylic dentures.
Smile Makeovers/Worn Teeth
We can often transform worn, broken and discoloured teeth into pearly whites! A combination of treatment options may be used to achieve the best outcome for you.
Our dental specialists and prosthodontists offer the latest ceramic fillings, using cutting-edge technology to restore the function and appearance of your original teeth.
Our clinic provides tooth whitening procedures including tooth bleaching.
A referral to our practice is not essential. However, your General Dentist or another Dental Specialist may have referred you to Specialist Prosthodontics to manage a complex dental condition or a cosmetically challenging dental problem.
At Specialist Prosthodontics, our highly professional team endeavours to work closely with referring specialists and practitioners, offering our expertise in diagnosis and assessment, treatment planning and provision of high level prosthodontic treatment. Patients are provided with high quality care in a comfortable and friendly environment.
