General dentists serve as your primary oral health care provider. They usually perform preventative care such as regular teeth cleanings, root canals, fillings, and may offer minor restorative procedures. However, they can also provide cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening and dental bonding.
Many general dentists provide root canal treatment in their office, and they may refer more complicated cases to endodontists. An endodontist is a professional dentist who is specialized in doing only root canals.
A general dentist can perform a dental crown procedure. However, depending on how complicated your case is, you may be referred to a prosthodontist. A prosthodontist is trained in complex techniques of teeth replacement, such as placing a dental implant to support a crown.
