These services include preventive services, including helping to maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in the mouth; restorative services, such as receiving timely and appropriate treatment when a problem is identified; as well as cosmetic services, including performing a range of cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, and even porcelain veneers.
