Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist: What To Look For
The health of the teeth and gums is important, but many people are just as concerned about how the smile looks. When cosmetic blemishes detract from the smile’s natural beauty, cosmetic dentistry treatment can help. Cosmetic dentistry addresses aesthetic flaws to enhance the appearance of the smile and boost self-confidence.
When choosing a cosmetic dentist, there are many factors to consider. It’s important to work with an experienced dentist who meets your cosmetic needs, and makes you feel comfortable in their care. Here, the dental team from Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, which serves Bloomington, IL, Champaign, IL, and surrounding areas, discusses some of the most important things to look for when selecting a cosmetic dentist.
Experience and Knowledge
As when choosing any other medical professional to meet your healthcare needs, experience and knowledge are two of the most important things to consider when selecting a cosmetic dentist. It is beneficial to work with a provider who has experience in the field and who can provide quality care, but it is just as important that they are committed to continual education and staying up-to-date on the latest cosmetic dentistry technologies and techniques.
Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry meets both those needs. The practice has been serving the community for 100 years, and our dentists continue to participate in educational courses and seminars so that our patients can feel confident that they are getting the best of experience and knowledge.
Variety of Services
Many dentists offer cosmetic dentistry services, but not all are as comprehensive in the range of treatments they provide. Variety of services is important because patients should know that their aesthetic goals can be met, no matter what type of cosmetic dentistry treatment is required. Our dental team is proud to offer a wide range of treatments, such as veneers, dental bonding, dental crowns, teeth whitening, and Invisalign. We can even personalize treatment and combine multiple procedures to provide our Bloomington patients with a complete smile makeover.
Results and Patient Referrals
Choosing a trusted cosmetic dentist can be difficult because most are quick to offer promises about the quality of their care. To be sure that you are working with a reputable cosmetic dentist, we recommend asking friends and family for referrals or requesting patient referrals and before and after pictures from the dentist, to evaluate patient results. This information can provide an added layer of confidence when selecting a dental professional to provide cosmetic dentistry treatment.
Affordability of Care
Cosmetic dentistry treatment is nearly always considered elective, which means that people should expect to cover most (or all) of the cost of treatment out-of-pocket. Because of this, affordability of care should be taken into consideration when choosing a cosmetic dentist. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the cheapest dentist is the best choice, but simply that it is good to consider a dentist who will work within your budget or offer financing options. Our dental practice is proud to accept CareCredit® financing plans, which has allowed many of our patients to achieve their aesthetic goals without straining their finances.
When people go to the dentist for any type of treatment, they deserve to feel comfortable. It is important to consider the types of amenities that a dentist offers to create a warm and safe environment for their patients. Most people have good natural instincts and can tell if a cosmetic dentistry practice is one where they will feel comfortable and well-cared for.
