Sometimes, practices will distinguish between “General Dentistry” and “Cosmetic Dentistry.” In our practice, we find that many of the day-to-day procedures we do, like fillings and crowns, have a very strong cosmetic component because we use a lot of tooth-coloured materials and take pride in ensuring that new fillings and crowns are colour-matched to blend in with nearby teeth.
After graduating from their Dental Degree, some dentists do additional training (usually a Masters Degree) in a specialist field. Upon graduation they will then limit their practice to this area of expertise. In Australia, specialists include:
- Oral-Maxillo-Facial Surgery
- Paediatric Dentistry
We refer patients to dental specialists if their treatment is complex or requires a specialist’s approach.
