Welcome to our Comstock Park cosmetic dentistry blog. Today’s article focuses on the difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.
General dentistry in the Comstock Park and Rockford, MI area focuses on preventing and treating oral disease such as cavities and gum disease. Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull can assess the best course of treatment for your dental needs.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Stewart & Hull in Comstock Park include teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, composite bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and porcelain crowns.
Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull offer both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a Comstock Park dental patient comes in with an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth needs to be restored to prevent decay. The tooth may be less structurally sound leaving it vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile. Depending on the extent of the damage, a root canal, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns or composite bonding may be necessary to repair the damaged tooth.
As you can see, there is not always a definitive line between general and cosmetic dentistry.

We treat Rockford and Grand Rapids area patients of all ages: from children who still have their baby teeth, to more mature patients.
