We hear a lot of questions from patients, and some of the most common are about the difference between general and cosmetic  dental procedures.

The Difference Between “General” and “Cosmetic” Dentistry

  • General Dentistry: General dentistry involves basic, routine, and preventative procedures. Sometimes, X-rays are also taken to reveal any other potential problems. It is encouraged to schedule bi-annual dental cleanings, which are also considered general appointments. Specific procedures that may be performed include the following: fillings, crowns, bridges, tooth extractions and root canals.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry: Cosmetic dentistry is right for patients who are concerned about the appearance of their teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can treat similar problems to general dentistry, but focuses on bringing out the natural beauty of your smile. Cosmetic appointments commonly involve the following: whitening, brightening, cosmetic bonding, implants and more.
