3 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Cosmetic Dentist for You
Hi, it’s Dr George Nguyen here from Delight Dental Spa at Mascot in Sydney.
The other day, I met a new patient, Julian, from Wollongong. He drove all this way to get a consultation about his teeth and smile. So I was curious and asked Julian, it’s lovely to see you, but what made you decide to drive over an hour and pass all those other dental practices to come to see us?
And he said, “Well, Dr George, I’m looking for a Cosmetic Dentist, but I wasn’t really sure what to consider when choosing one, I just saw your website and saw you are one” That got me thinking that most patients don’t know what to consider in choosing the right Cosmetic Dentist for them. So I thought I’d make this video and help you get some clarity on what factors you should consider when choosing the right Cosmetic Dentist for you.
Consider the range of services offered by the dentist
You see, different cosmetic dentistry practices might offer varying procedures. Some might specialise in porcelain veneers, while others may focus on Invisalign. Still, there are those practices that offer a broad spectrum of services, including both veneers and Invisalign and even budget-friendly options like composite veneers. This wider range of choices gives you the freedom to find a solution that suits your specific needs and lifestyle.
For example, combining Invisalign treatment for six months before getting porcelain veneers can sometimes produce outstanding results, your teeth can achieve a more desirable proportion and feel less bulky. But remember, this isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, and not everyone may need this particular combination of treatments.
Dentist's experience in cosmetic dentistry
You’d want to select someone with a proven track record. This is often reflected in their social media platforms and website. Check for testimonials. These real-life experiences can provide valuable insights into whether the dentist is genuinely skilled in cosmetic procedures or simply dabbling in them.
It’s also worth considering payment options. Does the practice offer flexible payment plans? This can be a deciding factor, as it enables you to choose the treatment you truly desire instead of settling for a compromise.
Now, let’s talk about your involvement in designing your new smile. It’s essential that your dentist takes time to understand your unique needs and incorporates your preferences into the treatment plan. You don’t want a generic solution, you want a bespoke smile crafted just for you!
Your comfort during the treatment process
You’d also want the dentist to be upfront about the prices and formalise this to prevent unforeseen surprises. Remember, when it comes to treatment, speed is not necessarily your friend. A dentist who takes time to understand your concerns, thoroughly explain your options, and answer any queries is likely a good choice.
Ultimately, the goal is to feel comfortable with your decision before you begin any treatment. Remember, your journey to a brighter smile should be suited to you. So take your time, do your research, and make the choice that suits you best.
I hope that this helps you in finding the right cosmetic dentist for your smile makeover.
