At Park Place Dental, our experienced team of dentists, including prosthodontists, have been providing exceptional dental care to the San Mateo community for over 20 years. We specialize in prosthodontics, a branch of dentistry focused on the restoration and replacement of missing or damaged teeth, ensuring that our patients can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for a lifetime.

What is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of oral function, comfort, appearance, and health in patients with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontists are experts in restoring and replacing teeth using a variety of techniques and materials, including:

  • Dental implants: Titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone to support replacement teeth
  • Crowns and bridges: Custom-made restorations that cover or replace damaged or missing teeth
  • Dentures: Removable appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues
  • Veneers: Thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance

The Importance of Prosthodontic Treatment

Missing or damaged teeth can have a significant impact on your oral health, self-confidence, and overall quality of life. Prosthodontic treatment aims to address these issues by:

  • Restoring proper chewing function
  • Improving speech and pronunciation
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile
  • Preventing further damage to your oral health
  • Boosting your self-esteem and confidence

At Park Place Dental, we understand the importance of a healthy, functional smile. Our team of skilled prosthodontists work closely with each patient to develop personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs and goals.

Our Prosthodontic Services

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone, acting as a replacement for the missing tooth root. A custom-made crown is then attached to the implant, providing a natural-looking and fully functional replacement tooth.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are custom-made restorations that cover the entire visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth, protecting it from further harm and restoring its appearance. Bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring replacement teeth to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.


For patients missing several or all of their teeth, dentures offer a removable solution for restoring function and aesthetics. Our prosthodontists design custom-made dentures that fit comfortably and securely, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
