Cosmetic Dentist VS General Dentist

While most patients would never visit a General Physician for brain surgery, many patients don’t realize the crucial differences between a cosmetic dentist & a general dentist. Dental patients that trust their cosmetic dental care to a general dentist end up coming to my Hollywood office to correct their previous dental work. Keep reading to learn about the differences between cosmetic dentists & general dentists.

General dentists are dedicated to treating & preventing cavities and gum disease. They diagnose the problem and work to correct and restore the tooth. Much of the work a general dentist does is focused on preventing bacteria and your mouth’s overall health.

Cosmetic Dentists work to combine the science and art of oral care. Their training goes beyond traditional dental training and emphasizes the appearance of the smile and teeth. Cosmetic Dentists will evaluate your smile and present various cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance and aesthetics of your smile. In contrast, a general dentist will focus solely on the health of your teeth. An actual Cosmetic Dentist is only a cosmetic dentist, meaning procedures such as oral surgery, Endodontics, and Gum Surgeries are usually referred to by other dental specialists.

While a general dentist can place a crown, a cosmetic dentist will focus on ensuring the height matches the surrounding teeth or beautifying and enhancing the smile. A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Anthony Mobasser has a keen eye for detail and will provide a crown that matches the surrounding natural teeth in vibrancy and transparency. A Full mouth cosmetic dentist will take years off your age, make you feel like a million dollars, and rejuvenate your entire face and look. Cosmetic dentists must be experts (meaning they have performed hundreds or thousands of cosmetic procedures), taking years off your face and giving you a younger natural look!

A cosmetic dentist focuses on the decorative component of any dental restorative procedures, vs. a general dentist concentrates only on function. If a tooth is damaged from an injury, trauma, or old age, a cosmetic dentist will focus on the restoration of the structure of the tooth as well as the smile’s overall appearance. Through dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns, Dr. Anthony Mobasser will work to cosmetically restore the structure and appearance of a damaged tooth or teeth.
