Your smile is often the first thing people will notice about you and your appearance, and it goes with you everywhere. That’s why choosing the right cosmetic dentist is really important and you spend time doing your homework. In this article, we’ll discuss the different types of cosmetic dentists, dental treatments, and what to look for when scheduling your first cosmetic dentistry appointment.
What Training Should my Cosmetic Dentists Have?
One thing we want to make clear, any cosmetic dentist you visit should have a dentistry degree from an accredited college. Also, they should be very interested in continuing education, because there are important new advances that are made in the field of dentistry.
By the way, this describes Dr. DuBois perfectly. Dr, DuBois loves learning and enrolls in continuing education courses every chance he gets, so he can stay on top of all the newest, latest, and greatest advancements in cosmetic dentistry.
What Procedures Can I Recieve From A Cosmetic Dentist?
While some dental offices focus solely on teeth whitening, a good cosmetic dentist will offer an array of services that can enhance your smile and build confidence:
- Smile Consultations – to help you see your smile’s potential
- Bonding – to eliminate the appearance of gaps between teeth, change the shape of teeth, or repair teeth affected by minor decay
- Veneers/Lumineers – for a bright, white, movie star-like smile
- Professional Teeth Whitening – at Comfort Smiles Dentistry, we offer ways to quickly whiten your teeth several shades. Bleaching is available in our office but we have other solutions that may interest you as well.
At our dental office, we’re pleased to offer our patients all these services, because we know how important it is to look and feel your best.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WITH REVIEWS?
We always recommend that you examine Google reviews of any cosmetic dentist you’re thinking about visiting. You’ll want to check for two things, the overall feedback of the dentist and the number of reviews the dental office has received.
For instance, at Comfort Smiles Dentistry in New Orleans, we’re proud to report that we have a 5.0 rating and 78 reviews. Ideally, you’ll look for a dentist’s office with a rating similar to ours, and no less than a 4.7, or you can end your search for a cosmetic dentist and just make an appointment with us!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A SMILE CONSULTATION?
When you visit Comfort Smiles, and Dr. DuBois, for your smile consultation, we’ll discuss your smile goals, review treatment options with you, and develop a treatment plan that takes into account your desires and budget.
We’ll also use Cosmetic Imaging so you can see how your smile will look after your cosmetic procedure is done. We feel that’s important because if you’re going to invest time and money into improving the appearance of your smile, we want you to be super-happy with the end result.
