Cosmetic dentistry here ar Dorset House Dental goes way beyond general dentistry. Not only is it important for physical health, having great oral hygiene and dental care does wonders for emotional wellbeing.
Many of us aren’t perfect – deformities, imperfections, discolouration, misaligned teeth – all of these things could be minor but that does not mean they do not make us self-conscious. They might make us hesitate to smile in social situations or in job interviews. They might make us second guess ourselves, and prevent us from reaching our full potential.
Cosmetic dentistry puts all of that behind you. Whether it’s a case of straightening teeth, whitening teeth, hiding imperfections or removing them completely, cosmetic dentistry treatments give people that extra bit of help to create the perfect smile.
What is the difference between general and cosmetic dentistry?
General dentistry is focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral diseases and disorders. This includes routine checkups, cleanings, and fillings, as well as more complex procedures such as root canals and extractions. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, is primarily concerned with improving the appearance of teeth and gums. This may include procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and orthodontics to correct crooked or misaligned teeth. While both types of dentistry are important for maintaining oral health, cosmetic dentistry is often considered elective and focused on enhancing the aesthetics of a patient’s smile.
