Cosmetic dentistry is a specialized form of restorative dentistry. Some may even say cosmetic dentistry is more of an art than a science. Where restorative dentistry focuses on fixing structural issues associated with missing or damaged teeth to restore function, cosmetic dentistry does the same but goes the extra step.
Cosmetic dentistry involves looking at the smallest of details to not only provide you with functioning teeth but also making them look natural, radiant, and esthetically pleasing. Generally, cosmetic dentistry involves some more expensive procedures that insurance may not always cover. These procedures include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Porcelain crowns
- Porcelain bridges
- Teeth whitening
- Composite (tooth-colored) fillings
Restorative dentistry encompasses a broad realm of dentistry. It involves fixing structural problems associated with damaged or missing teeth to achieve optimum dental health, function, and esthetics. The goal of restorative dentistry is to “restore” your teeth back to their original functioning ability.
Restorative dentistry includes a variety of dental specialties such as endodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, and oral surgery. Our offices offer comprehensive restorative services such as:
Emergency dentistry involves anything from a toothache to oral trauma. A situation is typically considered an emergency when pain and swelling are involved. Whether a tooth hurts spontaneously or you have fallen and broken a tooth, we are here to help. We will be able to see you to address the problem and provide for same-day treatment.
Emergency treatment may involve:
- Restorative dentistry
- Root canal treatment
- Simple fillings
Don't let tooth pain keep you awake at night or cause lost work time. Our team will help you get the emergency dentistry you need to feel like yourself again.
