Find the Right Cosmetic Dentist

There are many, many dentists who perform cosmetic dentistry. Before you start making calls, do some research.

  • Visit their website – is it easy to find the information you want? A website is often a reflection of the practice, so browse through the pages to get a sense of what the practice is about and how that benefits you. Read the profiles for the dentist and the staff. Does their education, experience, and philosophy fit your needs?
  • Check out patient testimonials – reviewing what others have to say about their experience is one of the best ways to gauge the dentist’s experience, skill, and chairside manner.
  • Talk to friends and neighbors. You can’t beat good old word of mouth for getting the information you want!

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions!

Your oral health is a very personal thing. If you want to achieve results that are perfect for you, you need to ask questions! If you’re unsure about what to ask, the Novato cosmetic dentist recommends starting with these basic questions:

  • How can you help me achieve the results I am looking for?
  • What are all the options that may be appropriate in my case?
  • Why do you think I am a good candidate for the treatments you are recommending?
  • How long will the results of the treatments I am considering last?
  • How much will this treatment it cost?
  • Do you offer any financing options for the treatments I want?
