At Bedford Dental Group, we always like to encourage our patients to make informed decisions, especially when it comes to choosing who has a hand in crafting their smile. When it comes to your teeth, you should never accept some cheap substitute. Like a good bed or investing in a decent pair of work shoes, it’s definitely worth it to spend a little more resources (whether they be temporal or monetary) in finding the right dentist for your particular needs.
Choosing a cosmetic dentist should be done just like choosing a general or family practitioner. Your cosmetic dentist, in many cases, will have just as big of a hand in crafting the smile you’ve always wanted. Whether you seek implants, veneers, all-on-four dental implants, as well as Invisalign, these are all procedures that can make your smile pull a 180-degree turn.
Obviously, we think you should choose Bedford Dental Group for your aesthetic enhancement needs when it comes to your teeth. But we also want you to hold us accountable just as you would a dentist you are considering using. And here are some great criteria to keep in mind when you’re deciding who is the right person for the job of keeping your smile looking incredible.
- Does this dentist specialize in cosmetic dentistry? Like any other field, dentistry has specializations, such as orthodontics, endodontics, as well as cosmetic dentistry, to name a few.
- Clientele: Does your cosmetic dentist treat celebrities? Do they have a long list of satisfied patients giving them lip service on the streets? Does your cosmetic dentist have an informative website outlining their services and supplying before and after photos showing their work?
- Level of Education: Take a look at where your cosmetic dentist studied for their undergrad, and most importantly, for their post-graduate work. Also important, take a look at where they practice. Is it a larger city in your region? Sometimes it’s worth traveling a few miles to get the right cosmetic dentist.
- Quality of Technology and Office: This is of paramount importance. Does your cosmetic dentist incorporate cutting edge technology into their treatment? Do they cover a wide swath of cosmetic procedures? Does your dentist lead a friendly and capable staff who have your best interests in mind at all times?
- Does your cosmetic dentist share the same goals for you that you do? It’s important that you and your dentist agree on practical ways to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. If both you and your dentist can work together, the spectrum of what you can achieve will widen immensely.
