Many dentists claim to provide cosmetic dental treatments. New innovations have meant that the field of Cosmetic Dentistry is now much broader than it once was.
But how do you figure out which cosmetic dentist is right for you?
We have provided you with some useful tips on how you may go about selecting the most appropriate cosmetic dentist for you:
1) Get recommendations and reviews
When looking for a good cosmetic dentist it is always helpful to see what other patients are saying about the dentists’ and the practice.
We understand how important choosing a cosmetic dentist can be, therefore welcome and encourage our patients to talk about their experiences.
You may find it useful to look at recommendations that are made and reviews that are left on Google and Trust Pilot Reviews.
2) Have a look at the dentist’s qualifications and dedication
When choosing the most appropriate cosmetic dentist, you may find it useful to take a look at their profiles and experience levels.
It is also useful to see the type of dentistry a particular dentist may enjoy doing or is committed to.
You want to select that dentist who will be able to look at all your options and select the most appropriate ones. This requires much experience, knowledge and skill.
At London Cosmetic Dentistry, you will find that our principal dentist Dr Mervyn Druin is highly experienced in Cosmetic Dentistry.
He has dedicated his career to the advancement and progression of the latest in Cosmetic Dentistry.
3) Look at Before and After Cases
Viewing photographs of before and after cases of different types of dentistry can be very insightful.
It allows you to not only understand the skill of the dentist but also it allows you to see treatment possibilities. Practices that are dedicated to Cosmetic Dentistry will have numerous cases of different situations to show you.
When you visit the dentist they can also show you selected cases that are similar to your situation. Many patients have found this very useful to get a glimpse of the transformations.
4) Take advantage of Free Consultations
We have found that patients find this particular appointment very helpful. It is a complimentary appointment where you can discuss your exact needs and requirements with either the dentist or our highly experienced Treatment Coordinators.
It allows you to understand all the various options available to you and get an indication of how much they will cost. You can have all your questions answered without committing to anything. It is a great way to find out if this is the practice for you.
5) Look for a friendly and helpful Team
A good cosmetic dentist practice will have a kind, cohesive and helpful team. We feel this is an important asset to any practice since patients are made to feel comfortable and relaxed. They can also have any queries addressed by a team that is highly skilled and knowledgeable.
6) Make sure you get a Customized Treatment Plan
It is important that the cosmetic dentist is skilled and knowledgeable in advanced Treatment Planning and Diagnosis and so can carry out an extensive and comprehensive assessment.
This is so they are then able to perfectly match only those treatments that are highly compatible with your unique situation. At London Cosmetic Dentistry, we specialize in personalizing your Treatment Plans to suit your unique needs and requirements.
7) Do they have good Post-Treatment Support?
Having a great system to provide after-treatment support is very reassuring to most people. This way you can have the confidence that if there are any concerns after the cosmetic treatment has been completed, you can still go to the cosmetic dentist who will help you sort everything out.
At London Cosmetic Dentistry, we have put multiple processes in place so that we can be certain that our patients are well looked after and have all their questions answered.
We are here to address any concerns you may have at any time: before, during or after your treatment. Find out more.
8) Are they regulated by the Care Quality Commission?
This is an independent governing body that regulates the proper and safe dental care of patients in England.
The cosmetic dentist of your choice must be regulated in the proper way to ensure correct standards of dentistry are being provided.
