General dentists provide a wide array of services that are vital to patients’ continued health. These services include: preventive services, including helping to maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in the mouth; restorative services, such as receiving timely and appropriate treatment when a problem is identified; as well as cosmetic services, including performing a range of cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, and even porcelain veneers. General dentists also address overall health concerns as oral health is seen as the mirror of general health.
