What is General Dentistry?
General Dentistry involves the day to day maintenance of the health of your teeth and gums. Regular check-ups, fillings, sensitive teeth, and bleeding gums are all part of General Dentistry. Maintaining a regular general dentistry check-up is a valuable way to assess the current health of your teeth and address any foreseeable issues.
Keeping up to date on your general dentistry issues can help to prevent larger issues such as root canals and missing teeth.
What is the difference between General Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry?
There are many General Dentistry procedures involved in Cosmetic Dentistry, but the essential difference is that Cosmetic Dentistry is more specifically related to the visual appearance of your smile. Teeth whitening, Veneers and Bridges all fall under this category.
A good dentist will always make sure your teeth and gums are healthy before proceeding with any cosmetic procedures.
