How are general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry different?

General dentistry provides foundational oral health care, including teeth cleanings, oral exams, and patient education. 

Cosmetic dentistry is different in that it works to improve your smile’s appearance. Cosmetic procedures are elective (not covered by dental insurance) and emphasize aesthetics instead of oral health.

Are there different types of cosmetic dentistry?

At Trump Village Dental, Dr. Ripa offers cosmetic dentistry to teens and adults, including the following:


Veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded to the surfaces of your teeth. They make your smile more balanced and cover up minor imperfections like pointy teeth or spaces between the teeth. 


Orthodontics is a cosmetic dentistry subspecialty focused on tooth and jaw alignment. You might be a candidate for orthodontic treatment if you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth.

Trump Village Dental offers several types of orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign oral aligners and OrthoSnap braces.

Zirconia and porcelain dental crowns

Dr. Ripa might suggest a zirconia or porcelain crown if you have a decaying or severely damaged tooth. A crown is a synthetic cap that restores your biting and chewing abilities.

Trump Village Dental offers same-day crowns. A CEREC milling machine onsite can fix your tooth in one visit.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening minimizes stains from coffee, tobacco, and other lifestyle factors. It’s a quick and effective way to make your smile brighter. Trump Village Dental offers in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits.

Cosmetic gum contouring

Some people have more gum tissue than others. If you feel self-conscious about a “gummy” smile, cosmetic gum contouring provides a safe and minimally invasive treatment option.

Dr. Ripa performs gum contouring with a soft tissue laser, ensuring a quick and virtually pain-free experience.

Who is a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

Consider cosmetic dentistry at Trump Village Dental if you have:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Small gaps or spaces between your teeth
  • Cavities
  • Damaged teeth
  • Excess gum tissue

After an oral exam and discussing your goals, Dr. Ripa and his staff develop a personalized treatment plan.

Can anyone undergo cosmetic dentistry?

You need healthy teeth and gums to undergo cosmetic dentistry. If Dr. Ripa discovers cavities or gum disease, he treats those issues first. Once your smile is healthy again, you can move forward with treatment.
