How do I Choose a Cosmetic Dentist?


Your smile is one of your most prominent features, and one of the first things people notice about you. If you are looking to change an aspect of your smile with cosmetic dentistry, you don’t want to entrust such an important feature to just any dentist. When selecting a cosmetic dentist, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Because cosmetic dentistry often draws on orthodontic, prosthodontic, and restorative dental procedures, a cosmetic dentist must be highly trained and experienced in several dental techniques to effectively reshape smiles. While many general dentists advertise as cosmetic dentists, be sure to double check that they have been specifically trained in cosmetic dentistry techniques.”” Cosmetic dentistry is not considered a dental specialty, but you can check to see how much training and experience your cosmetic dentist has in the specific procedures you need. Additionally, it is a good idea to contact the dental licensing board in the state where the dentist is practicing to check for a clear record.

When selecting a cosmetic dentist, be sure to take into consideration services offered, continuing education, accreditation from a reputable organization, and previous patient results.
