Finding the right cosmetic dentist can put you on the road to obtaining the smile you’ve always dreamed about. Cosmetic dental problems can leave you feeling embarrassed, leading to social anxiety and poor work performance. With the right cosmetic dentist, you can leave those feelings behind knowing you have a beautiful smile that projects confidence and capability.

Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist

While the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, there are many techniques that require additional training and skills. Here are some tips to help you make a good decision.

  • Training and certifications:  many cosmetic dental procedures are innovative and can only be taught by the company that developed them. Look for certifications and postgraduate training in those types of procedures, including Invisalign®
  • Associations:  Membership in many professional associations, like the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, can demonstrate a commitment to excellence and ongoing education
  • Payment plans:  since many cosmetic dental procedures are not covered by insurance, be sure to discuss payment plans
  • Scheduling and location:  Being able to make it to your appointments is an often overlooked key to successful smile makeovers.
