A general dentist is a dentist who provides a wide range of dental treatments to patients of all ages from children to seniors. Every dentist starts out as a general dentist before they choose to specialize in a field such as cosmetic or pediatric dentistry.

Both general dentists and cosmetic dentists offer all types of dental services. However, the difference between a cosmetic and general dentist is that cosmetic dentists focus their expertise and technique on cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, dental veneers, composite bonding, tooth recontouring, and even short-term braces.

Essentially, cosmetic dental procedures are used to enhance your smile’s appearance rather than treat specific issues like decay. But if you do have a tooth that needs to be repaired, we can use cosmetic materials to design a crown or filling that blends in and makes your smile look whole again.

If you’re considering a cosmetic treatment, contact us to schedule a consultation. We can help you create a plan that optimizes your natural characteristics and reduces the need for extra treatment in the future.

Although general dentists are trained to treat children, some of them prefer not to see kids in their office. Or they might have a policy that they do not see children younger than a certain age. So, if your family dentist doesn’t see infants or toddlers, you would need to locate one who does.

Other general dentists prefer to offer comprehensive family dentistry under one roof. In such instances, they offer preventative and restorative treatments for all ages. That way you and your children can be seen by the same Calgary dentist instead of booking appointments at separate offices on either end of town.

General dentists offer basic children’s dentistry treatments, but there may still be times when they need to refer a child to a pediatric specialist. For example, if your child has severe anxiety or requires nerve treatment on a baby tooth, it’s best that they see a pediatric dentist who offers children’s sedation or has hospital visiting privileges. Otherwise, it’s completely fine to keep bringing your entire family to see the same dentist!
