You’ve been putting it off, but now is a good time to do some housekeeping in your mouth. There isn’t anything wrong. Your teeth work and don’t need anything major done—just a little fix here and there, where there is a chip you’ve been meaning to get smoothed over, and possibly that gap could be closed up. Whitening perhaps? It’s time to pretty up your smile. So, what to do next? You need to find a good cosmetic dentist. Here’s what you need to know.


Find a dental artist that has a gallery of good-looking results to show for it. You’re looking for a person with both the know-how and aesthetic acumen to make your teeth into a work of art. Photos cannot lie. If they do not have a portfolio of dental portraits to peruse, ask for an interview and a free evaluation. A good cosmetic dentist will be pleased to make time for you.

See the Services Offered

Do you know exactly what you want done? Not ever dentist offers every kind of procedure. Make sure the one you pick can do what you are looking for. Your issue might be in the purview of an orthodontist rather than a general dentist. Don’t know exactly what you need? This is another instance where a free evaluation comes in handy.

Patient Reviews

It’s easy to check out patient satisfaction online these days. If the dentist you are evaluating doesn’t have their own website with patient reviews, their credentials, a smile gallery, the services they offer, that is OK. More than likely there will be an independent online service that reports patient reviews.
