Cosmetic dentistry is primarily focussed on the esthetic appearance of teeth, whereas general dentistry focuses on the functionality of your smile. There are some areas of dentistry which have overlapped into both categories such as Invisalign which aligns the teeth for functional and health purposes, but does so without impacting the look of your smile. Invisailign is a great way to get a straight smile without sacrificing the one you have in the process. As we progess into the future of dentistry, we are seeing more and more that you don't necessarily have to sacrifice esthetics to improve your smile.
For example, traditional fillings are made with silver amalgam which is quite noticeable, and may cause a patient to feel self conscious by having all their dental work on display for all to see. Cosmetic dentistry offers tooth colored fillings which are virtually undetectable and provide a seamless solution to cavities and tooth decay.
