Cosmetic dentistry is a method of professional oral care that focuses on improving the appearance of teeth and fixing a patient’s smile. The primary focus of cosmetic dentistry is dental aesthetics. With the help of a cosmetic dentist, you can improve your smile and have teeth you’re proud of.

Difference between a general dentist and a cosmetic dentist:

A cosmetic dentist has the same basic training as a general dentist and they can perform the same fundamental procedures. As with general dentists, cosmetic dentists can perform procedures such as X-rays, teeth cleaning, and other fundamental techniques like filling cavities and adding bridges, crowns, etc. The main difference is that a general dentist cares for a patient’s basic dental needs while a cosmetic dentist concentrates more on the aesthetics of the patient’s smile.
