Questions to Ask the Doctor

Questions to Ask the Doctor before Receiving Cosmetic Dentistry

When choosing a cosmetic dentist, be prepared to perform some research to ensure that you receive the care and treatment you desire. The Internet provides a vast amount of information about cosmetic dentistry procedures and the pros and cons of each treatment. Ask friends or colleagues for references to a dentist they know and trust who performs cosmetic dentistry. As with any investment, it is best to get more than one opinion on what treatment would be best for your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is not recognized as a dental specialty by the American Dental Association (ADA). Any general dentist can perform cosmetic dentistry and your current dentist might be able to meet your cosmetic dentistry needs. However, cosmetic dentistry procedures involve more artistry and treatment outcomes can vary depending on the dentist selected. The following questions can be used when consulting with a dentist about your cosmetic dentistry needs:

  1. What procedures would you recommend to improve my smile? It is best to begin the appointment describing the result you desire rather than giving a specific procedure you think would work best.

  2. Can I see pictures of patients you have treated with this procedure? Most dentists performing cosmetic procedures will have before and after photographs readily available on a website and/or in a photo album. Some dentists may even provide a list of patient references for you to contact.

  3. What follow-up treatment and home care regimens are involved in maintaining my smile after this procedure is performed?

  4. What type of continuing education have you received with respect to the specific procedure I am considering?

  5. How many years have you been performing this procedure? Ask for an estimate of how many times the procedure has been performed.

  6. What percentage of your work involves cosmetic dentistry procedures?

  7. Do you offer any financing plans? If finances are a concern, the dentist might offer in-office or third-party financing options such as Care Credit.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I hate the dentist and have been to several different one’s trying to find the best but now my search is over! Dr. Logan is the best. Quick, painless, and the environment is chic but homey, not sterile like most dentist offices. I also hardly had to wait, they didn’t overbook and I was in and out of there and on to work on time!"
  • "I have in the past been one of those patients that put off the “”dreaded”” visit as long as I could. After finding Dr. Logan it’s no problem to get myself there. The office is very relaxing with warm inviting colors, and I’ve never had to wait for more than a couple of minutes You will love Dr. Logan and his staff!"
  • "Dr. Amorin at Dr. Logan’s office is wonderful!! I cannot say enough good things about him! He is very gentle and is always careful to ensure that I am not experiencing any pain.
