How is general dentistry different from cosmetic dentistry?
General dentistry focuses on the health of the teeth, mouth and gums. Cosmetic dentistry is a term used to refer to dental work that improves the appearance and function of your teeth and gums. Some common cosmetic dental procedures are tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and smile makeovers.
Dr. Quigless provides general dentistry to his patients but uses cosmetic dentistry techniques for procedures that will produce visible results, such as using white composite fillings instead of metal amalgam to protect teeth that have suffered damage from cavities. In this way, Dr. Quigless can repair and keep your teeth healthy while still making them look naturally beautiful.
Why should I have a cosmetic dentist provide my general dentistry care?
A cosmetic dentist is simply a general dentist with additional training in dental aesthetics. Using a cosmetic dentist for your general dentistry means not only that your dentist can provide you with aesthetically appealing solutions to your dental problems, but has also proven his dedication to dentistry through voluntarily expanding his knowledge of dental treatments. By choosing Dr. Quigless as your general dentist as well as your cosmetic dentist, you are investing in both the health and beauty of your smile.
How should I care for my teeth to ensure that my general dentistry appointment goes well?
There are several steps you should take to keep your dental cleanings and checkups going smoothly. First of all, you should keep your appointments for regular checkups. Many dental problems can be prevented or minimized through early detection. Seeing Dr. Quigless for checkups and cleanings every six months provides him and his team with the opportunity to look for dental decay and potential problems.
Additionally, you should do your part to promote tooth health by brushing and flossing twice a day and using the appropriate dental care instruments. If you would like recommendations or help selecting the right floss, toothbrush, or toothpaste for your daily dental care, simply ask one of our knowledgeable team members.
