3 Things to Consider When Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist
Hi, I’m Dr Angus, the principal dentist of Dove Dental here at Waurn Ponds in Geelong.
Last Friday, a new patient, Samantha from Highton, came in to consult about getting Dental Veneers. She shared with me that she has been looking for a cosmetic dentist for awhile now but didn’t know how to find the right one. She said to me, “Hey Angus, I came to see you because I saw all the great before and after photos on your website. But other than that, what else should I consider in choosing a Cosmetic Dentist?”
This got me thinking that most people don’t know what to consider when finding the right cosmetic dentist for them, so I decided to make this quick video.
So, here are the three things you should consider when choosing a cosmetic dentist.
You need to check the dentist’s credentials. Cosmetic dentistry is a specialised field, and not all dentists are qualified to perform these procedures. Look for a dentist who has received additional training in cosmetic dentistry and is certified by a recognised professional body. This will ensure that you are receiving treatment from a qualified professional who has the necessary knowledge and skills to carry out the procedures you need. You can also check online reviews and testimonials to get an idea of other patients’ experiences with the dentist.
Consider the range of treatments offered by the dentist. Cosmetic dentistry covers a wide range of procedures, from teeth whitening to dental implants. It’s important to choose a dentist who offers a full range of treatments, so you can be confident that you’re getting the best possible treatment for your individual needs. This will also save you the hassle of having to go to different dentists for different treatments.
You should consider the dentist’s communication style. A good cosmetic dentist should take the time to explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have. They should also be honest about the potential risks and benefits of the treatment. If you feel comfortable talking to the dentist and feel that they are genuinely interested in your concerns, you’re more likely to have a positive experience.
To sum it up, when choosing a cosmetic dentist, you should check their credentials, consider the range of treatments they offer, and assess their communication style. By considering these factors, you can be confident that you’re choosing the right cosmetic dentist for your needs.
