5 Tips For Choosing A Cosmetic Dentist
No one likes going to the dentist, but if you want to improve your smile, there is no way to avoid a trip. Cosmetic dental procedures have gained popularity in recent years, and as such more and more people are flocking to their local cosmetic dentist to improve their smile.
People have numerous choices when it comes to selecting a cosmetic dentist. Choosing the right kind of dentist, for your particular situation is important. You also want to make sure they have the right training so you get the results you desire.
Here are 5 tips for finding the right cosmetic dentist for you.
1. Recommendations from friends and family are the best place to start.
Who have they had a good experience with? Are they happy with the service and results they are receiving from their current cosmetic dentist? Are they satisfied with the people that work in the cosmetic dentist office? Does the dentist make the patient feel comfortable and do the quality work that is expected?
2. Make a trial visit
Check out the aesthetics of the cosmetic dentist you plan to use. Does it look and feel inviting? Is it clean? Make an appointment to talk to the dentist about his/her specialties, credentials, hours, and fees.
3. Ask questions about the actual dental visit
Who will be doing the work? Do they employ hygienists to do the teeth cleaning? Does the dentist offer any services that help with patient fear and anxiety?
4. Ask about any new technology or techniques to make it comfortable
Although you may think dentistry hasn’t changed much over the past 50 years (drills, shots, pain) it is actually made many technological advances. Your cosmetic dentist should be keeping up with the current developments available in order to make your trip to his office as comfortable and easy as possible.
5. Find a dentist who listens to your needs
It is important that your cosmetic dentist is willing to listen to you regarding your expected outcome and respond to your questions in easy to understand terms. Every patient is different, and during their consultation, they should be clear and honest in what they are able to offer in regards to your treatment, and advice you in regards to the best treatment options for your situation, even if that means not going ahead with the procedure. They should also clearly explain the expected treatment time frame and the longevity of the intended procedure.
