Many people are surprised to learn that there are many different types of dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry and emergency dentistry are just two examples. However, just like there are many different specialties in other medical fields, there are many different types of dentists. Some dental offices only handle specific types of cases, while other dental practices are able to handle a wide variety of cases.
In the Marietta area two of the most in demand services are for cosmetic and emergency dentists. But, what

do these types of dentists do?
Cosmetic dentistry deals with the way your teeth look. It is focused on helping people by improving the appearance of their smile. Because of many different issues people can have healthy teeth, but are self-conscious about the way their teeth look. Feeling uncomfortable about your smile can lead to other serious issues.
Cosmetic dentistry helps people have smiles that they can proudly and frequently share. Many people in professional service jobs want to make sure their smile sends the right message to their clients.
Some of the types of cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental bonding
- Teeth reshaping
Because this field of dentistry is constantly changing with the introduction of new technologies and techniques, it is important that you only see a cosmetic dentist committed to continually learning about the latest advances in the field.
Emergency dentistry is exactly what it sounds like. People can have painful and severe dental issues at any time of the day and on any day of the week. However, many dental offices only are open Monday through Friday and they usually close at 5:00 pm.
What happens you have horrible tooth pain at 3:00 am on a Sunday? The emergency room at the hospital will not be able to do much for you except maybe give you some pain killer and tell you to call the dentist on Monday.
Emergency dentists are on call at all hours to help you deal with major dental emergencies. Some of the kinds of things an emergency dentist routinely deals with include:
- Severe sudden tooth pain
- Crown falling off
- Filling falling out
- Chipped tooth
