When searching for a dentist you are likely to find general dentists, cosmetic dentists, and family dentists. This can leave you wondering what the difference is in the three. The answer to this question is in the kinds of services they provide, and the patients they will see. Every general, cosmetic, and family dentist’s primary concern should be the health of his or her patients. Different dentists have different philosophies as to what is in the patients’ best interest. Here at Holistic Dental Center in Cornelius we put our patients’ health first. All materials we use are free of metals and is the safest available. We never will place anything in your mouth that we would not place in the mouths of our loved ones.
General dentist often put age restrictions on the patients they will see. Family dentists, like the team here at Holistic Dental Centers, care for patients of all ages from small children to senior citizens enjoying their golden years. Both family and general dentists are responsible for seeing to patients’ basic oral care, from providing checkups and cleanings to treating cavities and gum disease. Some offer additional services that go beyond basic care such as cosmetic dentistry, which is something we offer here at Holistic Dental Centers.
A cosmetic dentist takes the aesthetics of their patients’ smiles in to account with every procedure they perform. We want your smile to be beautiful and healthy. This is the reason we will never place a metal restoration in your mouth. Not only does it have a negative impact on the appearance of your smile, but it also can damage your health.
We also offer our patients teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. These procedures are great options for improving the appearance of your smile. By removing the stains, it can make your smile look several years younger. Porcelain veneers can completely change a person’s smile covering minor cosmetic damage.
