Finding a good cosmetic dentist can be tricky. When you want to improve your smile, only the best is good enough. You want some reassurance that the results you get will live up to your expectations. If you want a healthy, beautiful smile, your cosmetic dentist should consider both the appearance of your teeth, as well as your overall dental health. You should be able to trust your dentist’s advice regarding procedures, knowing that your dentist considers your dental needs above anything else.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry A Specialty?
One issue that makes choosing a cosmetic dentist particularly difficult, is that cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized dental specialty. There is no dental training program acknowledged by the American Dental Association for dentists to qualify as cosmetic dentists. Instead, any dentist with a high skill level in performing cosmetic procedures can market their practice as a cosmetic dental office.
As a patient, you have the responsibility to choose your cosmetic dentist wisely. While most cosmetic dentists will be skilled in their area of practice, not all are equally capable of giving you the results you want. By asking your dentist about their experience, education and skill, you can avoid disappointment.
To perform cosmetic procedures such as placing implants and veneers, it’s helpful to see a cosmetic dentist who’s a qualified prosthodontist. Prosthodontists specialize in various dental treatments and procedures. While their specialty isn’t only focused on aesthetic dentistry, aesthetics are one of the areas prosthodontists are specially trained in.
Before visiting a cosmetic dental practice, it’s also good to read some online reviews. Online reviews are very telling. Previous patients won’t hold back on their honest opinions about a dental practice, so if a dentist gets a lot of positive feedback, you’re on the right track.
