A dentist who offers cosmetic dentistry can usually perform a wide range of services, from porcelain veneers to teeth whitening. However, any general dentist can easily claim that they are a cosmetic dentist.
With this in mind, the question then becomes the quality of their work, the prices they charge, and what other dental services they offer – such as pediatric dentistry for the kids. After all, ideally, you would want to have the same dentist perform everything your family needs, including regular dental cleanings and checkups.
Let’s talk about some of the main things you can do in your quest to find an outstanding cosmetic dentist:
Ask About Their Experience and Expertise
The best cosmetic dentists have years of experience performing cosmetic dental procedures, including Invisalign, teeth whitening, and veneers. You can ask whether they have pictures of their before-and-after work, and how long they have been practicing dentistry.
Consider Fees and Payment Options
Cosmetic smile enhancements are usually not included in insurance plans, because they are not considered necessary for your health. However, some dentists offer payment plans for dental work of all kinds, including cosmetic procedures – so ask your dentist about that.
The dentist will likely first want to evaluate your mouth in order to gauge which types of cosmetic dental procedures may be recommended for your teeth. There’s no reason to talk about fees and payments until you know what you’re paying for! If you are on a tight budget, the dentist will recommend the least-expensive treatment possible for your teeth. The dentist may also offer a low monthly payment plan so you can afford a more expensive procedure if necessary.
Check Whether They Offer IV Sedation for All Procedures
If you or someone in your family has dental anxiety, you can also ask whether they offer IV (intravenous) sedation for all procedures, including cleanings. This service allows the patient to stay relaxed during the entire treatment – never fully asleep, but relaxed.
If your dental anxiety is keeping you from visiting a dentist but you wish to have a brighter, healthier smile, you can ask for IV sedation during every appointment. No one should be afraid of going to the dentist, so we make it a pleasant experience.
