What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?

A cosmetic dentist is a dental professional who focuses primarily on improving the appearance of a patient’s teeth, gums, and smile. While they should have a strong foundational background in general dentistry (i.e. the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental issues and promotion of good oral hygiene), cosmetic dentists must also undergo additional training in solely aesthetic procedures. Ideally, he or she should be proficient in numerous solutions for enhancing a patient’s smile, and should also be able to tailor each treatment to meet the patient’s unique needs.

How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist

Enlisting the right dentist increases your chances of a top-quality oral healthcare experience. For this reason, we advise you to choose a dentist with the proper qualifications, from their educational background and experience to their professional affiliations and reputation. For your own safety, your provider should be up to date on the latest trends in the dental industry, and should use only the most advanced technology on the market. It is also very important that you feel comfortable with your dentist, and that he or she (as well as the entire office) provides a welcoming environment throughout your visit.

It can be helpful to read patient reviews and explore photo galleries on the dentist’s website for a sense of what to expect. Dentists frequently include stories – sometimes even video testimonials – from real patients, which can give you firsthand insight into the treatment you’re interested in. From there, we recommend you schedule a consultation with the dentist to ensure you are comfortable with his or her approach to care.
