Factors to Consider

You and your dentist will become long-term healthcare partners. That is why finding the right dentist and ensuring that your personal considerations are properly addressed is key.

Here are a few starter questions and factors to consider to put you on the path to finding your dentist:

  • Does this dentist participate with your dental health plan?
  • How convenient are the office hours?
  • Is the office in a location close to work or your home?
  • What professional background and experience does your dentist have?
  • What is this dentist’s approach to preventive care?
  • What specific services are offered?
  • How are emergencies addressed by your dentist?

Atmosphere is another factor to keep in mind when choosing the right dentist for both you and your family. Things like calming music, friendly staff and gentle techniques can deliver a better overall dental experience.

Services Available

One of the key considerations for finding your ideal dentist is knowing which services are available. When choosing a cosmetic dentist, be sure they offer a wide variety of procedures to help improve and enhance your smile, including:

Our dentists combine their specialized training and custom skill set to deliver outstanding cosmetic results to our patients.

Qualifications

It is important to know that cosmetic dentistry results may vary, and are dependent on the skill of your dentist. Even if a particular dentist comes highly recommended and shows you beautiful photographs of other patient’s results, you should always make sure that they are qualified before opting for any procedure they offer.

You can do this by asking them directly. You can also check online to see where your prospective cosmetic dentists went to school, what continuing education courses they completed and what professional organizations they belong to.

Qualified cosmetic dentists should have completed the appropriate schooling and training, and should have the following credentials:

  • American Dental Association
  • American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)

Being affiliated with these two organizations is very important. A dentist that is a member of these organizations is offered education and training on the latest procedures, techniques, products and technology. Because of this, members continually stay one-step ahead of their peers, and are constantly informed of new trends within the dental industry that can ultimately improve the patient experience they deliver.

Questions to ask during Your Consultation

Picking the cosmetic dentist that’s right for you can seem like an overwhelming process. You want someone with excellent qualifications and skills that you feel comfortable with.

During your consultation, your dentist should explain your recommended treatment options to you in detail. However, you want to be sure to ask various questions that will help you to understand how the dental practice operates, and what services they can provide.

Great questions to ask may include:

  • Where did you receive your dental degree?
  • Did you receive additional postgraduate cosmetic dentistry training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI)?
  • Do you specialize in specific cosmetic dentistry procedures?
  • May I see before-and-after-photos of your cosmetic dentistry patients?
  • Are there multiple solutions to my cosmetic dental problem?
  • What are the potential risks and complications associated with my suggested treatment?
  • What if a complication arises during or after treatment?
  • What will my recover process be like?
  • Will I need special dental care after my cosmetic dentistry procedure?
  • What anesthetic or sedation dentistry methods to you offer?
  • How long have you been practicing cosmetic dentistry?
  • What are your qualifications?
  • What is the procedure going to cost?
  • Will insurance help cover the costs?
  • Do you love what you do?

Choosing the right cosmetic dentist for you can be a long process. Fortunately, Drs. Randy Bryson and Toni Margio can help answer your questions and provide you with the cosmetic dental procedure you need to strengthen and maintain your beautiful smile.

What to Expect at Your Consultation

Your initial consultation with a cosmetic dentist is an opportunity for you to learn more about the practice you’ve narrowed down your search to, as well as discuss what you like and don’t like about your smile. Your consultation is also an opportunity for the dentist to learn more about you, and to help establish realistic expectations and a timeline for your personalized treatment.

Consultations will typically involve:

  • A comprehensive intraoral exam
  • Intraoral photographs
  • X-rays
  • Impressions of your upper and lower teeth
  • Reviewing treatment options

Choosing the cosmetic dentist that’s right for you can be a difficult task. However, Drs. Bryson and Margio suggest that the best way to choose the right dentist is to schedule an initial consultation.
