How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist
Nothing will make more difference in the quality of your dental results than your choice of cosmetic dentist. Finding the right one for you takes a little work, but it’s worth it. Your cosmetic dentistry treatment can last for 10 years, 20 years or more! You want to make sure you’re happy with the results for all that time.
Consider Your Current Dentist: If your current dentist does a lot of cosmetic dentistry, then maybe you should consider working with them. However, you want to make sure that they have both training and experience in the area. Make sure you see before-and-after pictures from previous cosmetic patients and ask to talk to cosmetic patients. If your dentist doesn’t offer cosmetic treatments, you should still mention that you’re considering it, they may have good recommendations.
Talk to Friends and Family: If you know someone who has had some work done by a cosmetic dentist, talk to them about their experience. Don’t forget to mention what you’re considering to friends who have naturally beautiful smiles—you may be surprised to learn that their smile isn’t so natural after all. And only their cosmetic dentist may know for sure.
Go Online: Once you’ve talked to your friends, family, and dentist about recommendations, go online to check out their recommendations and find a few other possibilities. Find cosmetic dentists that are within the distance you’re willing to travel for quality work. They don’t have to be convenient for everyday visits—with quality work you won’t need to see them much after the work is completed. Check out online reviews, look at before-and-after galleries, and read what dentists say about themselves and the procedures they offer. Identify 3-5 dentists as your leading candidates.
Talk to Dentists: The next step is to talk in person to each cosmetic dentist you’re considering. Ask them about their education and experience. Talk to them about your concerns and goals. Gauge how well they listen to you and how well they respond. Are they offering education and suggestions or just telling you what you need done? Don’t forget to ask to see more before-and-after pictures. An experienced cosmetic dentist likely has more than are available online. And ask to talk to previous patients—a good cosmetic dentist will have patients willing to talk about their experience.
Make a Decision (Or Don’t!): Choose a Sydney cosmetic dentist who makes you feel comfortable with the level of care and the quality of results you are likely to receive. Not fully comfortable with any of your options? Start your search again. Your cosmetic dentistry will have lifelong impacts, and if you haven’t found a dentist that makes you full comfortable with the results you’re likely to get, then you haven’t found the right one for you.
