Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry
How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?
The cost of cosmetic dentistry will depend on the type of procedure you are receiving. Additionally, the needs of each patient, the methods used, and the materials involved will contribute to the overall costs. For example, the materials and process used for Invisalign® treatment will differ from porcelain veneers and will ultimately impact your overall cost.
How Do I Find the Best Cosmetic Dentist?
Finding the best cosmetic dentist can be as important as the procedure itself. Prospective patients should ask many questions when considering a cosmetic dentist. When choosing a professional there are several factors to remember: confirm their credentials, ask for referrals or talk to friends or family who have used the cosmetic dentist, ask for examples of their work pertaining to the specific procedure you are pursuing, and ensure you have communicated your needs accurately and the cosmetic dentist has effectively listened.
