Finding the Right Cosmetic Dentist for Veneers

By: Theodore Michaels

Finding a dentist is a lot like finding a mechanic or repair technician. However, you're dealing with something that's a bit more important than a car or microwave oven - your teeth. In that regard, it is extremely important that you conduct a fair amount of research before finalizing your decision to see a specific cosmetic dentist. Below we will walk you through some of the things you should do on your quest to find the right cosmetic dentist.
Start your journey into finding a cosmetic dentist by asking around. Try to limit the asking among friends and family - people you can trust. Ask them what particular procedure they had done at their dentist's office and whether or not they were happy with the outcome. Pay very close attention to those who got any veneer procedures done by a dentist.

When you get a few solid reviews of a certain dentist, you want to expand the scope of your research into the internet. Search Google for the dentist's name and try to find some reviews. You will undoubtedly find some negative reviews of the specific dentist - don't let this discourage you. Complaints are not all equal. If you find two unrelated complaints that are not serious (billing issues, etc.) you most likely don't have anything to worry about.

Once you've reached a consensus based on the research you've done, you should schedule a consultation at the cosmetic dentist's office. While there, be sure to ask as many questions as you can. Ask how long the dentist has been doing dental veneers and how many patients have undergone the procedure. Try to get some before and after pictures.

Once your consultation is over, you should be able to make a determination on whether you want to go with the dentist. If you don't feel comfortable with the particular dentist, start your search over again. Otherwise, you're a step closer to getting that new smile!
