How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist

Wondering how to choose a cosmetic dentist? Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic influx of “cosmetic dentists” into the field so much so that in the industry, being a “cosmetic dentist” is almost a cliché . . . passé’. Why? Because these days, any general/family dentist who does things as simple as whitening teeth, can claim to be a cosmetic dentist.

Unlike many other medical specialists, dentists are not required to have any advanced education or training to practice cosmetic dentistry. In fact, the requirements for practicing Cosmetic Dentistry vary from state to state. As a result, some cosmetic dentists may not have undergone any advanced training.

A Guide To Help You Find A Cosmetic Dentist

The confusion to find a cosmetic dentist has grown out of the American Dental Association’s choice not to consider cosmetic dentistry as an approved ADA specialty like oral surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, and so on. Additionally, there is no professionally required course of study

that dentists must complete before being allowed to advertise themselves as cosmetic dentists! For this reason, selecting a cosmetic dentist can be a difficult and confusing process. To make things easier, we offer some tips we believe will help the selection process.

Tips On The Selection Process

Selecting a cosmetic dentist can be a difficult and confusing process. However, if you want to achieve the results you desire, choosing the right cosmetic dentist is crucial! So, take your time when considering any cosmetic dental procedure. Then, set your goals and determine the best options available for achieving them.

Check for Credentials

Search for a dentist who has post-graduate education and training in cosmetic or restorative dentistry from a reputable institution. Next, check to see if they have a membership in professional associations, such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. The AACD website is an excellent information source for reliable answers to cosmetic dental questions. In addition to this, you can easily locate an accredited member.

Why This Matters

Accredited Members of the AACD have completed extensive advanced training and education in cosmetic dentistry, and have successfully passed the rigorous Accreditation Board Examination. These credentialed members have demonstrated a very high level of clinical excellence and ability in cosmetic dentistry.

Experience & Training

Excellent cosmetic dentistry requires the utmost attention to detail. So, make sure the dentist listens to what you want and has a clear vision of what is possible. This can only be achieved through experience and training. So, if you are considering a smile makeover, you should ask exactly how many smile designs the dentist has completed.

FinallyAsk to See Before & After Photos & Videos

To verify the experience of the cosmetic dentist, ask to view before and after photos of cosmetic dentistry that have actually been performed by that dentist. That’s because many dentists display commercially available photos and albums that show the possibilities for cosmetic dentistry. For this reason, you want to make sure you are seeing actual work by the dentist you are considering. In addition to this, make sure that the photos you look at are also cases similar to yours. You might even ask to speak to one or more of his or her patients, or see their reviews.

I came to Dr Bernie because I was referred to him by another dentist on the East Coast that specialized in bite orthotics to help reduce migraines. It’s been a long journey for me. I had the orthotic made to see if it would help with my nightly grinding (and headaches that resulted from it) and it did. So I had Dr Bernie fix my bite that had been destroyed after years of grinding and am now on my second Orthotic that I wear at night. Now if I get a migraine it’s usually from hormonal shifts or a night of too much wine. Lol. Such a relief to not have the brutal migraines and jaw tension caused by grinding. Everyone on staff there is so friendly and welcoming. I drive to them all the way from Glendale for my cleanings now and the warmth of everyone there makes the drive worth it.

Dr. Villadiego and his staff are superb! Dr. Villadiego is very good at what he does. His years of experience gives me the confidence to rely on what he does for my dental health. His friendly personality makes it so easy to talk to him because he genuinely cares. That genuineness is also reflective on how long he keeps his staff. For over 12 years I have visited Dr. Villadiego and his staff and he still has at least 90% of his original staff. In my opinion that says a lot. Give the office a visit and you’ll wonder why you didn’t sooner.
