No, dentures are considered restorative dentistry because dentures help restore the function of your teeth. Restorative dentistry also includes dental implants, onlays, inlays, bridges, and crowns. Orthodontia, on the other hand, focuses on the adjustment of misaligned teeth and jaws. An orthodontist may diagnose and prevent or treat malocclusions. If you have gaps in your teeth, an overbite, an underbite or overcrowded teeth, you may be referred to an orthodontist. Another type of dentistry is cosmetic dentistry. A cosmetic dentist specializes in the appearance of your smile. They may offer teeth whitening, teeth straightening, tooth-colored fillings, in addition to offering veneers and crowns.
