The smile

All dentists are not created equal and neither are all cosmetic dentists. A dentist is not necessarily an expert in cosmetic dentistry. Some dentists specialize in the treatment of dental problems without focusing on the cosmetic aspects of a person’s smile. A cosmetic dentist, on the other hand, should be a dentist that completed training in the art of cosmetic dentistry upon graduating from dental school.

It takes time to select the right cosmetic dentist for your needs and cosmetic goals. You do not want to leave the future of your smile in the hands of just anyone.

Take the time to learn as much as you can about the dentist during your meeting. If the dentist rushes you or seems apprehensive about answering your questions, move on to the next cosmetic dentist on your list. Talk to each cosmetic dentist and let them know what work you want done on your teeth. —
