Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry In Derry

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Derry Cosmetic Dentistry Hello, we’re Drs. Rothenberg and Moskowitz. Welcome to our Derry cosmetic dentistry blog. Today’s article focuses on the difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.

General dentists in Derry 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.

Derry cosmetic dentists perform elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Vanguard Dental Group in Derry include teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.

Some Derry dentists, like us, offer both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a Derry 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 restorative options. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all used to repair a damaged tooth.

As you can see, there is not always a definitive line between general and cosmetic dentistry. At Vanguard Dental Group, our high tech team provides a full spectrum of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures. We treat Manchester area patients of all ages: from toddlers just beginning to get their baby teeth to mature patients who remember the days when many people were afraid of dentists and their whiny drills. (Some of our wonderful elderly Derry patients have crowns that are older than our hygienists.)

Experienced Derry dental professionals who perform pediatric, general, orthodontic, and cosmetic dental procedures can meet all of your family’s dental needs.
