The Benefits of Having Cosmetic, Restorative, and General Dentistry in One Office
Dr. Robert Amirian at Advanced Dental Care of NYC understands the importance of his patients’ time. Because of this, he’s made it easy for his patients to find general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry all in one place. What are the benefits of this? Read on to learn about each of these types of dentistry, and why having a dentist who specializes in all of these types of dentistry can be an enormous convenience.
General dental care is the bedrock of any oral health regimen. Preventative dentistry (or general dentistry) focusses on maintaining overall health and oral cleanliness. It may involve additional education that allows you to better care for your smile at home.
Be sure to see your dentist every 6 months for a hygiene appointment, so that small oral health concerns can be addressed before they become larger problems.
Another aspect of dentistry is that of cosmetic dentistry. Also known as aesthetic services, cosmetic dentistry is the focus on the appearance of the smile. This may include services that address imperfections in the smile or poor alignment, such as orthodontics, porcelain veneers, and professional teeth-whitening treatments. Many of these align with restorative dental care as well, enhancing the overall look of the smile while repairing areas at the same time.
Restorative dentistry involved “repairing” the smile, per say, and may include dental crowns, full and partial dentures, or dental implant treatment. These services, among others, restore the health, function, and appearance of the smile.
