Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist

| October 2, 2018

Your smile is something that goes with you everywhere, and it’s probably one of the first things people notice about your appearance. That’s why it’s really important you do your homework when you choose a cosmetic dentist.  Read on to learn about the different types of cosmetic dental treatments and what to look for when scheduling your first cosmetic dentistry appointment. 

What Type of Training Should a Cosmetic Dentist Have?

Any professional you visit for cosmetic dentistry should have a dentistry degree from an accredited college. They should also display an interest in continuing education, because important new advances are being made in the field of dentistry all the time.

By the way, this describes dentists, Dr. Thompson, Dr. Hoellrich, and Dr. Chitkara, to a “T”. They love learning and enroll in continuing education courses often, so they can stay on top of all the latest and greatest advancements in cosmetic dentistry.

What Treatments Can I Get from a Cosmetic Dentist?

While some dental offices focus solely on teeth whitening, a good cosmetic dentist will offer an array of services including:

  •       FREE 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 – to quickly whiten your teeth several shades; at Grandview Dental, ZOOM® whitening is available in our office OR we offer a  $69 professional-strength, take-home whitening kit  

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 recommend that you look at the Google reviews of any cosmetic dentist you’re thinking about seeing. You’ll want to check two things—the dentist’s overall feedback and the number of reviews the dental office has received.

For instance, at Grandview Dental, we’re proud to report that we have a 4.9 rating and 218 reviews. Ideally, you’ll look for a dentist office with a rating similar to ours…or you’ll put an end to your search for a cosmetic dentist and just make an appointment with us!

What Can I Expect During a Smile Consultation?

When you visit Grandview Dental for your free 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 SNAP 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.
