Choosing A Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist
- Posted on: Jul 21 2012
As a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist I talk to people every day about changing their smiles and while I would like them all to choose me – I also like to offer tips on choosing a cosmetic dentist so they can make the right choice for them.
So how do you choose a cosmetic dentist and how do you make sure you have chosen someone with the training and experience needed to create your dream smile? You’ve got to ask a lot of questions!
You need to ask where the dentist received their cosmetic training – “in dental school” is not the answer you are looking for. Advanced cosmetic cases require many hours of coursework after dental school. Ask how many cosmetic dentistry continuing education courses the dentist has taken? Find out if the dentist and staff members attend ongoing continuing education in this field.
What dental organizations does the dentist belong to? Being a member of the American Dental Association is nice but dentists who truly love cosmetic dentistry belong to organizations that focus specifically on the subject. Ask to see before and after photos of previous patients.
Probably the most important part of choosing a cosmetic dentist is finding someone you trust. You should feel comfortable talking to the dentist about your wants and needs. You cannot expect to micro-manage your smile makeover however – your cosmetic dentist has extensive training in creating beautiful, natural looking, healthy smiles. Trust their training and judgement!
Cosmetic dentistry covers a wide range of procedures from simple tooth whitening to porcelain veneers to full-mouth makeovers. Most people can achieve a beautiful smile without resorting to extremes so you may be surprised by how affordable having your dream smile can be.
