What’s the difference between general and cosmetic dentistry?

The main difference between general dentists and cosmetic dentists is their focus on work and services. While general dentists focus on the overall health of your teeth – they would diagnose any issues and treat them such as tooth decay, gum disease and so on. The cosmetic dentists focus more on the aesthetic part – the appearance of your teeth and gums and your attractive smile. So if you want a smile makeover, it would be wise to choose a cosmetic dentist. Education-wise, both general dentists and cosmetic dentists complete their degree in dentistry. A cosmetic dentist will focus more on aesthetic dentistry during their study and training.

What’s involved in cosmetic dentistry?

Aesthetic (also called cosmetic) dentistry deals with various areas of therapeutic and prosthetic dentistry, as well as periodontology, periodontal treatment and surgery, orthodontics, implantology, and other dental care services. Cosmetic (aesthetic) dentistry includes a wide range of procedures that aim to improve the appearance of teeth and the patient's smile . Your dentist might use a combination of several procedures that are often used to achieve the desired effect and the perfect smile. Here are some of the procedures you might see at a cosmetic dentist’s office.

  • Dental Implant
  • Teeth whitening
  • Composite Bonding
  • Dental Veneers
  • Inlays and Onlays
  • Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many benefits to cosmetic dental procedures. A lot of the result from such treatments depends on the wishes of the patient and the dentist’s quality of work. Patients can see a lot of improvements not only there in the confidence and aesthetic appearance of their smile but also in their general oral health. We believe that the best results from any aesthetic treatment are achieved by following the natural proportions of the patient’s smile and customizing the treatment plan to fit each patient’s lifestyle and goals.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is perhaps one of the most widely used aesthetic dental procedures in decades and one of the sure ways to enhance your smile. A lot of people want to get teeth whitening because front teeth (especially) easily become stained from coffee or other foods and smoking. There are a lot of options when it comes to whitening procedures. Different whitening procedures remove stains or different types of atypical tooth staining, significantly correct the colour, and improve your smile.

Composite Bonding

Composite teeth bonding in Singapore is a relatively easy and not very expensive dental service that allows you to improve your smile by restoring superficially broken or misshapen teeth, changing the shape of the teeth, lengthening the teeth, filling in gaps, or gaps between teeth. It’s also used for stained or decayed teeth and is one of the more affordable ways to achieve a beautiful smile. Tooth bonding is usually done with a polymer, which is applied to the tooth and hardened by irradiation with a special lamp.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin scales made of ceramic that are placed on the front surface of the teeth. They are getting more and more attention worldwide from people who want straighter teeth and beautiful smile. They are made individually for each patient and are glued on the teeth to change their appearance. Veneers are used when it is necessary to change the size, shape, color, and length of the teeth .
