General and Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Bloomfield Hills, MI

Keeping your teeth healthy and strong is a priority for many people in today’s society and rightly so. Studies have proven that keeping a healthy mouth can improve overall health. Having decay and infection in the mouth can spread illness to other areas of the body. Seeing a dentist to help keep your teeth clean and decay-free is a must.

While there are specialists in the field, such as orthodontists and endodontists, there are two main types of dentists which perform the majority of dental work. These include general dentists and cosmetic dentists. Sometimes either type of dentist can perform the same type of service. Other times their services are a bit more divided.

General Dentistry

A general dentist offers cleanings, x-rays, fillings, and other basic dentistry services. Some might perform more complex procedures such as root canals and bridges. However, their services aren’t typically with cosmetics in mind. Rather, their main focus is to keep the teeth healthy and strong.

Cosmetic Dentistry

The cosmetic dentist is trained in all procedures in which the general dentist is trained. This means they can do cleanings, fillings, or other basic procedures. However, a cosmetic dentist also focuses on the cosmetic appearance of the teeth, or making sure the teeth appear natural and are pleasing to look at. This might include procedures such as teeth whitening, crowns, or matching fillings to your natural tooth color.

Which Dentist Should I See?

This is a question only you can answer. If you’re looking for a dentist to help you achieve your most attractive smile, a cosmetic dentist may be your best option. They can care for all your oral healthcare needs.

It is for this reason that many people decide it is most beneficial to find a dentist trained in both general and cosmetic dentistry services, like at the Dr. Scott Owens practice.
