What is General Dentistry?
If you grew up going to the dentist every six months, then you have a good idea of what a general dentist does. General dentistry focuses primarily on prevention – of cavities, decay, and other diseases and problems related to the teeth, gums, and jaw. If you were born with strong teeth and have practiced good oral hygiene over the years, then you may have never needed any other dental treatment beyond a routine cleaning. For the rest of us, however, general dentists are trained to fill cavities, perform root canals, and carry out all routine dental procedures.

Recent decades have seen the emergence of several subspecialties of dentistry. Among these is cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving a person’s smile through such elective procedures as:
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective. Therefore, they are not usually necessary for the maintenance of good oral health, and most insurance plans will not usually cover the cost of the procedure.
Choose the Right Dentist
At the Center for Exceptional Dentistry, every procedure we do, whether it is necessary or elective, is done with cosmetic dentistry principles in mind. We perform all of our general dentistry procedures using principles of aesthetic dentistry to ensure that your results look as natural as possible.
