Learn Why We're the "People's Choice"!

Since 1993, Christine Tenaglia, DDS has perfected our treatment in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and reconstructive dentistry. Here, we're going to spell out the key differences between each area of dentistry. General dentistry refers to non-specialized maintenance, such as root canals and dental bridges. These procedures are usually medically necessary but may not affect the appearance of your teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry are procedures that aren't always medically necessary but provide a revitalized appearance to your smile. Some procedures, like braces, can improve the overall function of your mouth. It also includes crowns, implants, and veneers. Reconstructive dentistry includes procedures that improve the structural and mechanical function of your mouth. This includes TMJ or TMD treatment.
