EVERYBODY seems to be a Cosmetic Dentist…Here is the Scary Truth
You have an accident and get a facial laceration – a big cut across your cheek. Where do you go to get that fixed? A General Surgeon? No, a Plastic Surgeon.
You have a bad case of acne, nothing seems to make it better. You want the best and right treatment. Where do you go? Your regular MD? No, a Dermatologist.
You have a heart condition that concerns you. You want the best treatment possible. Where do you go? Your regular MD? No, a Cardiologist.
The list goes on and on, and everyone knows the answers, they are common sense. Or are they? Let’s look at another example:
You have an accident and break off your front teeth. Or, you just plain want the most beautiful smile possible. Where do you go? Your regular Dentist? No, a Cosmetic Dentist.
The only problem is, EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE A COSMETIC DENTIST!
The same principals apply as with all the other examples. You want someone that has the expertize, experience, and training to deliver the best possible result.
I still have yet to meet a dentist that is not a self proclaimed cosmetic dentist!
So, what do you do?
If you spend the time online researching cosmetic dentistry you will soon come to the conclusion that there is only one program in the world that offers ACCREDITATION in cosmetic dentistry – the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. This is the most vigorous peer reviewed program that only a handful of dentists pass each year. Currently there are only 260 accredited cosmetic dentists in the entire world!

So, if you want to have the most beautiful smile possible or just need to repair a cosmetic issue on your teeth, where do you go? An ACCREDITED COSMETIC DENTIST.
You would be surprised how many patients come to me dissatisfied with cosmetic dentistry they just spent a lot of money for. It is very sad. Going through all that time and spending all that money to not be completely thrilled with the result. What a waste. Now it will cost more time and money to fix. Plus, the situation is complicated by the fact that someone else has worked on the teeth and tissue, possibly making the situation even more complicated. It would be so much easier for even an accredited cosmetic dentist to treat the situation first, rather than be the fix-it guy.
Cost is always an issue. Everybody wants a good deal, including myself. How much more expensive is it to do it right the first time? Well, in short, not much at all. The cost of redoing it or just not being happy with it is much more! Just like all the examples above, cost should not be the determining factor when deciding such important issues as your smile – the gateway to your soul (shared equally with your eyes!). The difference in cost is not as much as you might think!
So, the next time you consider cosmetic dentistry, think about the examples above, do your online research and find out for yourself why you would be better off with an accredited cosmetic dentist. Your smile is too important to be experimented on!
