Hello, we’re Drs. Almeida & Bell. Welcome to our Lone Tree cosmetic dentistry blog. Today’s article focuses on the difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.
General dentists in Lone Tree are dedicated to preventing and treating oral disease such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, let’s say, a cavity between two teeth, a general dentist will assess the best way to restore the tooth involved.
Lone Tree cosmetic dentists perform elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center in Lone Tree include teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.
Some Lone Tree dentists, like ourselves, offer both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a Lone Tree dental patient comes in after receiving an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth needs to be restored to prevent decay. The tooth is also less structurally sound, so it is vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile. Depending on the specifics of the damage, there are several of restorative options. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all used to repair a damaged tooth. We can also fit the patient with a sports mouth guard to help prevent future mouth injury.
As you can see, there is not always a definitive line between general and cosmetic dentistry. At Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center, my warm and comfortable team provides the full spectrum of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures. We treat Lone Tree area patients of all ages: from toddlers just beginning to get their baby teeth to mature clients who remember the days when many people were afraid of dentists and their whiny drills. (Some of our wonderful elderly Lone Tree patients have crowns that are twice as old as our hygienists.)
We are experienced Lone Tree dental professionals who perform general, orthodontic, and cosmetic dental procedures and can meet all of your families’ dental needs.
