What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?
A cosmetic dentist is a licensed dentist who has completed extensive training in aesthetic techniques and technology. They will be particularly interested in helping patients improve the appearance of their smiles while preserving the individual’s oral health. Dr Copp believes that everyone deserves to have a smile they can feel confident showing off, and he is dedicated to making the process as comfortable and as fun as possible.
What to Look for in a Cosmetic Dentist
Not all cosmetic dentists are the same, and finding one who understands your goals and can deliver the results you’re looking for is essential. In addition to reviewing a potential cosmetic dentist’s education, training, and professional memberships, you will also want to have an initial consultation with them, so you can better understand their philosophy and get to know their personality. You want to feel comfortable and confident in their approach, and the best way to do this is to meet them. Another recommendation is to review the before-and-after photos of the procedure you’re considering. If you like their aesthetic, then it might be a good match.
Questions to Ask Your Cosmetic Dentist
During the initial consultation, you have the opportunity to get to know your dentist. This is the perfect chance to ask lots of questions to get a feel for the dentist’s demeanor as well as to see which procedures may be able to help you achieve the smile you want. Some of the questions that can help you find the ideal cosmetic dentist for you include:
- Where did you earn your dental degree?
- Do you complete continuing education courses each year?
- Have you received additional training in the procedure I’m interested in?
- Can I review before-and-after photos of this treatment?
- What procedure do you recommend for my concerns, and are there any alternatives to consider?
- What types of technology do you use?
- Do you have patient testimonials I can read?
You may have several questions of your own to ask, and your prospective dentist should show a willingness to address these questions and to help you become well-informed about your dental care.
