General, Cosmetic, and Restorative Dentistry
General, cosmetic, and restorative dentists deliver comprehensive care to prevent oral disease, enhance the appearance of teeth and gums, replace missing teeth, and renew oral health. They deliver comprehensive care to remedy dental problems for patients of all ages.
- General Dentistry: General dentists perform services to treat oral disease; solve problems with teeth, gums, jaw joint function, and bite alignment; and help patients achieve and maintain an optimal level of oral health. For most patients, a general dentist may be the only dental professional they visit in the course of their lifetime. A general dentist performs checkups and cleanings, fills cavities, designs and applies dental restorations and replacement teeth, treats gum disease, and performs a whole host of additional oral healthcare-related services. General dentists deliver full-service care encompassing all aspects of oral health.
- Cosmetic Dentistry: Cosmetic dentists enhance smiles through treatments that eliminate flaws and improve all aspects of the teeth and gums. Some of these services include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, gum tissue sculpting, complete smile makeovers, cosmetic dentures, white fillings, and all-porcelain restorations. Cosmetic dentists offer comprehensive care to optimize the appearance of teeth and gums while ensuring maximum function and enhanced comfort.
- Restorative Dentistry: This area of dentistry includes treatments to treat oral disease, restore teeth damaged by decay or trauma, and replace missing teeth. A restorative dentist performs therapies that renew the health of compromised smiles; designs dentures, partials, and bridges to replace missing teeth; and may place and/or restore dental implants. Restorative dentists renew oral health and contribute to whole-body health by eliminating dental problems and improving the way smiles look, feel, and perform.
