Are you a newcomer to downtown LA? Maybe you are searching for a dentist closer to your workplace, or one who is a better match for your needs. You may be wondering if you need a family dentist for preventive, restorative, and general dentistry, and another for cosmetic treatments. You get it all at Downtown Dental in Los Angeles.
Two important points
First, you should know that neither “family dentistry” nor “cosmetic dentistry” are among the nine specialties recognized by the America Dental Association. Rather, family dentistry describes the dentist’s willingness to treat patients of all ages, from pediatric to seniors. Cosmetic dentistry involves services specifically for smile enhancement.
Second, family dentistry and cosmetic treatments are concepts that complement one another. Family dentistry is necessary to keep your mouth healthy and looking good naturally. In addition, an ethical dentist considers aesthetics with every procedure he recommends or performs.
Choosing a dentist
Here are a few considerations when choosing a dentist:
- Range of services – Downtown Dental offers a full care menu, from professional cleanings to tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, gum rejuvenation, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, periodontal management, treatment for TMJ disorders, and much more.
- Experience – Dr. Mungcal has been serving friends and neighbors in Los Angeles since 1992.
