Libertyville Dental Associates is the only dental practice you and your family need for both general and cosmetic dentistry.

From newborns to seniors you are in the best hands when you leave your dental care to the professionals from Libertyville Dental Associates.

What is General Dentistry?

Your primary care provider is considered a general dentist. A general dentist diagnoses than treats the problems while managing overall oral health. General dentists also deal with pain and/or problems with your smile.

This also includes gum care, root canal therapy, dental filings and other restorative procedures that bring teeth and gums back to function.

General dentists usually treat infants, toddlers, teens and adults, but aren’t always pediatric dentists.

Pediatric dentists, just like other types of specialty dentistry require additional education and training.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

According to Libertyville Dental Associates, doctors specializing in cosmetic dentistry have the same basic skills as general dentists but have continued education in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

For example, a good cosmetic dentist will have more training when it comes to porcelain veneers and clear plastic braces.  

Cosmetic dentists also have more training when it comes to other types of cosmetic dentistry such as cosmetic dental crowns and dental bonding.

Choosing Between General and Cosmetic Dentistry

According to Libertyville Dental Associates, choosing between a general dentist and a cosmetic dentist can be tough, especially if you aren’t sure what you want to alter or change about your smile.

The best place to start is with your general dentist, who could also be your cosmetic dentist and that is where Libertyville Dental Associates comes in.

The team from Libertyville Dental Associates have years of experience in both general and cosmetic dentistry. When you schedule a consultation you’ll get the best recommendations for your needs and your budget.

Your First Appointment

The first time you meet with the team from Libertyville Dental Associates you’ll discuss your oral and overall health history. This helps your doctors come up with a plan after they thoroughly examine your teeth and gums.

For example, if you have a history of tooth decay and are still displaying dental caries, the issue will be addressed before coming up with a blueprint for your overall dental health care plan.

Once your plan is thought out a schedule of appointments and procedures will be set for your new smile.
