Restorative Dentistry V/S Cosmetic Dentistry


Overview  Cosmetic Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry sometimes overlap each other.  The main difference between the two is their focus and the level of expertise of the dentist.  The

cosmetic dentist not only focuses on correcting the teeth’s functioning but also on the

overall look of a smile (aesthetics), whereas a restorative dentist would only help an individual

achieve a set of fully functioning teeth. 73% percent of Americans would rather go grocery shopping than flossing their teeth.


What is Restorative Dentistry?  Restorative

Your teeth are as unique as fingerprints. You’ve probably heard about using dental records to identify a person, but did you know that even identical twins have their own unique “dental fingerprints”?

dentistry refers to the management and procedures that your dentist performs to keep your mouth healthy and functional.  These procedures include putting in dental implants, dentures, fillings, and crowns.  Restorative dentistry is only concerned with keeping the mouth functioning as best as it can. Eventually this process also improves one’s smile.


Issues that Restorative Dentistry Procedures can Fix ď‚› The

most common issuesb include cavities which are filled to prevent further decay; missing teeth that are replaced with implants, bridges, or dentures; and broken teeth which can be strengthened and protected with crowns or caps.

Dental bridges were invented to conceal a missing tooth


What is Cosmetic Dentistry? ď‚› Whereas restorative dentistry is primarily

concerned with keeping teeth healthy and functioning, cosmetic dentistry is more focused on improving the look of your smile. While dentists always put the health of your mouth first, having cosmetic procedures done may not necessarily improve how well your teeth actually function. Soda is one of the leading causes for tooth decay and discoloration


What are the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures? ď‚› People

choose to improve the look of their smiles for various reasons. Chipped, uneven, or yellowing teeth are frequent issues seen in any dental office and may be sources of self-consciousness for many people. Teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, orthodontics are the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers for teeth can protect your teeth’s natural enamel
