San Diego Prosthodontics—Specialist in Fabrication of Custom Dentures

Do you need dentures?  To see if dentures are an option for you, the best place to start is to schedule a consultation with a prosthodontist.  A prosthodontist is a dental specialist recognized by the American Dental Association with 2-3 additional years of training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Harold Gulbransen is a prosthodontist who focuses on the restoration and replacement of missing teeth, gum tissues and bone, including complex denture cases. He will be able to determine if dentures or another treatment plan is the best option for your unique situation.

What makes our prosthodontic practice unique is the fact that we have a fully equipped prosthetic laboratory in our office. It is staffed with two, full-time dental laboratory technicians. This ensures complete control and timely delivery of superior quality customized crowns, bridges, dental implant restorations, dentures and facial prostheses.

With over 30 years of dental laboratory experience, Fred is one of our two full-time dental laboratory technicians. Prior to joining Dr. Gulbransen in 1995, Fred was a dental technician in the United States Navy. His expertise and skill ensures superior quality, custom dental prostheses in a timely fashion. Ian, the newest addition to our dental team, has over 18 years of experience in the field of dentistry. His enthusiasm and impeccable work ethic are matched only by his attention to detail. He brings a wealth of experience to our dental laboratory.

We have the ability on site to accomplish all phases of complete denture fabrication, most implant supported restorations and cast precious metal crowns and bridges. A custom milling machine is available for the fabrication of high-end implant supported restorations. All phases of fabrication of silicone facial prostheses, from sculpting to processing and painting are handled in our laboratory.

Our In-House Laboratory is designed to assist Dr.Gulbransen and allows him to provide high quality care to his patients. We do denture repairs on site for our existing patients. With our on-site dental lab, these repairs can be easily completed in a short amount of time, usually in the same day. If you are not a patient, Dr. Gulbransen would be happy to evaluate your prosthesis to see if it can be repaired. Please call us for an appointment at 619-463-3773.
