General dentists are good in diagnosis and treatment of oral cavity diseases. They also perform routine dental check-up for the maintenance of your dental health.

Cosmetic dentists are made of different stuff . They go to continuing education courses and seminars on creating the perfect teeth which is actually practicing science with art.
