You want to have some Redmond cosmetic dentistry done and, of course, you want it to look fabulous.
Who should you choose to do it?
That’s a good question because not all Redmond dentists achieve the same high-quality results.
How can you find the best cosmetic dentist?
Here are five critical things to consider before you make a decision.
1. Education and training in cosmetic dentistry
One of the most important considerations when choosing a cosmetic dentist is the doctor’s background.
All dentists don’t have the same cosmetic dentistry training and education. Some dentists focus mainly on general or family dentistry with some aesthetic dentistry training.
To get the kind of “wow” results you want, you need a doctor who has honed his/her skills in cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as:
- Porcelain veneers
- Implant dentistry
- Dental bonding
- Tooth-colored restorations
- Teeth whitening
- Smile makeovers
You can check on potential dentists’ expertise by checking out their bio page on their website. They will usually list their educational background and any specialized training they have received.
If you were to check the bio page for Dr. Karen McNeill, you would see she has extensive training in cosmetic dentistry for Redmond and the Greater Seattle area.
Here are a few of the things that put Dr. McNeill in a very elite, distinguished category for Redmond cosmetic dentistry:
- Fully accredited graduate of LVI GlobalOpens in LVI Global website for advanced cosmetic dentistry
- Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic DentistryOpens in AACD website
- Received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of WashingtonOpens in U of W School of Dentistry website
LVI Global is a world-recognized authority for advanced cosmetic and reconstructive dental education. Dr. McNeill has completed all advanced courses at LVI Global about full mouth reconstruction, anterior (frontal) aesthetics, complex occlusion, and neuromuscular dentistry.
This advanced education puts her in an elite group of the top 1% of highly trained dentists nationwide. She is one of few female doctors to have attained this level of advanced training!
Isn’t that the kind of resume you would like your cosmetic dentist to have?
2. Modern technology
A great cosmetic dentist will use the latest technology dentistry has to offer.
Modern technology offers real advantages when it comes to your cosmetic dentistry treatment. Advanced dentistry tools can make your procedure faster, more comfortable, more efficient, and produce better results.
3. Cosmetic dentistry results
When it comes to excellent cosmetic dentistry, the proof is in the results!
Any credible cosmetic dentist will be able to show you before and afters of their cosmetic handiwork. If he/she has a website, you should find a smile gallery that showcases the results. For example, check out this makeover gallery of Smile Artistry’s patients.
Seeing real patient examples of the doctor’s cosmetic dentistry can give you a good idea of his/her skill level.
If you don’t like the results you see in the photos, then it would be best to look for another dentist!
4. Online reviews
No matter how skilled a dentist might be, you want one you can feel comfortable working with, right?
Cosmetic dentistry is very personal. It’s essential to have a dentist who can communicate well, is easy to talk to, and is genuinely interested in your welfare.
Checking out a dentist’s online Google reviewsOpens in Google reviews page for Smile Artistry can give you a good picture of the personality of a potential cosmetic dentist or practice.
Were patients happy and satisfied with the dentist’s care? Did the dentist address their concerns? If there was a problem, how did the office handle it?
