Most people are familiar with the focus that traditional dentistry has on prevention of tooth decay, oral hygiene, and the treatment of oral and tooth disease. 

Certain dental offices in the OC on the other hand, focuses on making the appearance of your mouth, teeth, and smile look better. You will often times hear cosmetic dentistry referred to as “elective” treatment with traditional dentistry being “necessary”.
