how to find a cosmetic dentist

How to Find a Cosmetic Dentist

Choosing a dentist is a serious decision. Many dentists declare themselves to be cosmetic specialists, but you need to do practice due diligence to weed out the pretenders from the experts. Here are a few helpful tips on how to find a cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic dentistry, for one, is not a specialty that’s officially recognized by the American Dental Association, so any dentist can legally refer to themselves as a cosmetic dentist. Let’s look at a few ways to determine if a dentist is a cosmetic specialist.  

Look at Their Training

Consider dentists who have been formally trained to conduct cosmetic procedures. When searching for a dentist, ask these questions:

  • How many years have they practiced dentistry?
  • Did they receive post-doctoral cosmetic training? If so, where?
  • Do they belong to any dental associations?

Don’t be afraid to directly contact the dentist and inquire about their cosmetic dentistry experience.

View Their Work

Most cosmetic dentists who excel at their jobs are proud of their work. On the dentist’s website, look for before-and-after photos. It’d be even better if there are some case studies and patient testimonials.

Learn About Their Technology

Look for dentists who are equipped with modern dental technology. Technology is one way to check the level of care and treatment in that office. Look for CAD/CAM restorative technology, digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and more.

Review Their Professionalism

During your initial inquires and consultations, confirm if that dentist office is attentive and patient-focused. In many offices, the patient can be an afterthought, with poor wait times, lazy receptionists, and dentists who refuse to listen to their patients. For you to receive the smile of your dreams, you need a dentist who is eager to communicate with you, relatively accessible, and committed to helping you. Your dentist needs to be able to fully explain and walk you through any procedures, and will help you understand the benefits and the risks of those procedures.

Your oral health and appearance is incredibly important to your livelihood. You need a dentist who you know can get the job done. For you to trust your dentist, you will need to evaluate their experience, training, previous work and bedside manner. Doing a bit of research to choose the right dentist can be the difference between receiving a subpar or a stunning smile.

are dental implants safe

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Losing teeth can be a stressful experience. There are several to restore a smile, but not all of them are created equal. You will either choose one of these options:

  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures
  • Dental Implants

Out of these three options, we believe dental implants to be the best, and there are several reasons why:

  • They look and function like real teeth
  • You don’t have to worry about them falling out when you eat, talk or laugh
  • They’re stable and can withstand normal bite forces and chewing
  • Preserves the health of the jawbone without impacting the surrounding teeth
  • They can be used to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth
  • Can last a lifetime with proper care

To you, this may all sound perfect, but there is one question lurking in your mind: Is the procedure safe?

Our answer: Yes, but it depends on the dentist.

Let’s explain how dental implants work. Dental implants are composed of titanium, and they are surgically drilled into the jawbone. Titanium is a biocompatible material that can connect to the jawbone. This process is called osseointegration.

Dental implant procedures have been commonly used since the 1970s. Over the years, they have become more predictable and secure than other methods of teeth restoration. It’s the only restoration methods that simulates the feel and function of a tooth root underneath the missing tooth.

However, if your dental specialist in unqualified and lacks proven experience, it can be risky. An experienced specialist like Dr. Grossman can ensure that the procedure is conducted smoothly, even if there are unforeseen complications.

How to Know if Your Dentist Is Qualified

If the dentist isn’t up for the job, you will receive subpar results, and you will lack the ongoing care you need. Here are two ways to determine if the dentist is up for the task:

  1. Check their years of experience. For example, Dr. Grossman has been practicing dentistry since the ‘80s. If your dentist has only recently started their practice, you need to really be sure that they know what they’re doing.
  2. View past work. If the dentist has experience, they won’t hesitate to show you before-and-after pictures of their dental implant procedures. If these are not available on their website, ask them to show you any past work. If none is available, it should be cause for concern.

Are Dental Implants Safe and the Right Choice for Your Oral Health?

We believe that dental implants offer the safest and most effective way to restore your teeth. The safety of the procedure depends on the experience and skill level of the dentist. For more information, contact us today.

What are the different types of veneers?

When many people think of veneers, they typically understand that they are made to fit on your original tooth, but they often don’t realize that there are several types of veneers available. Dr. Grossman is in expert in helping you determine which type of veneers is best suited to meet your needs. An expert in crafting beautiful smiles, he will perform a full assessment of your oral health and make professional recommendations based on his findings.

Veneers Overview

To help you understand the different types of veneers available, we’ve provided a quick overview below:

Composite Resin Veneers

This type of veneer is considered to be the most common, and a popular treatment for beautifying your smile. Composite resin veneers generally are done in one appointment. After the tooth is prepared or reshaped, Dr. Grossman carefully binds and sculpts the composite material in a color that matches your other teeth. A special light is used to harden the composites, then the veneer is smoothed and polished to look like a natural tooth.

Ceramic Veneers

Ceramic veneers have a smooth translucent surface that provides a very natural appearance. They are more resistant to straining than composite veneers, but require more visits to complete because they involve custom impressions and a laboratory for fabrication.

Ceramic veneers are extremely thin shells made of a strong and durable ceramic. Dr. Grossman removes a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the tooth, and to make room for the veneers and prevents the restored teeth from feeling or looking bulky or unnatural. Next, the dentist makes an impression of he prepared teeth so that the shape of the preparatory and surrounding teeth can be replicated in the dentist laboratory. At the next visit, the dentist places veneers on the teeth to check the fit, shape and color.

Instant Veneers

These types of veneers are pre-made and sometimes used universally for patients based on their specific needs. They are available in a wide variety of shapes and colors so that the veneer can be matched to your natural tooth.

Removable Veneers

One of the newest options available on the market, this type of veneer snaps on to your original tooth. It can be worn while eating and drinking, and is easily removed for cleaning.

What to Ask Your Cosmetic Dentist

Deciding whether or not cosmetic dentistry is the right choice for you can be easier than you think if you know what questions to ask first. Here’s a list to help you get started:

12 Questions for Your Cosmetic Dentist

  1. What are my cosmet options?
  2. What compromises may I have to accept?
  3. What will the final result look like?
  4. Can I see before and after photographs of patients you’ve treated with similar problems?
  5. How long will my restoration last?
  6. How well will the restorations stand up to wear?
  7. What type of maintenance is required?
  8. How closely will the restorations match my natural teeth?
  9. Will I have to change my eating habits?
  10. What guarantees or warranties do I have?
  11. What are my payment options?
  12. Do you feel you’re the best dentist to do this for me?

Remember, trust is a major factor in choosing a cosmetic dentist. Your esthetic restorations may initially appear beautiful, and your expectations may be met esthetically, but will their beauty stand the test of time?

Were they designed to fit precisely and thereby not irritate the soft tissue? Because it is almost impossible for you, as the patient, to make these determinations, it is essential to find a dentist who has the training, experience, and willingness to dedicate the time needed to get exceptional, long-lasting results.

Dr. Grossman is an expert cosmetic dentist who can answer all these questions and any other questions you may have regarding cosmetic dentistry procedures. To set up a consultation, contact Dr. Grossman today!

Dr. Loren Grossman flossing

To Floss Or Not To Floss

There’s a good reason why the American Dental Association strongly recommends that you floss at least once day. Using dental floss helps you to clean in the tiny spaces between your teeth and allows you to reach surface area that can’t be reached using your toothbrush. Although some critics question whether or not flossing is actually effective, dentists and oral health care professionals see the direct benefits of regular flossing every day.

However, research shows that flossing does more than just keep your smile healthy and beautiful. It can aid in maintaining your oral health, which has a significant impact on your overall health and well being.

Here are just a few reasons you should be reaching for your dental floss every day:

Floss and Toothbrush Teamwork

Evidence supports that flossing once a day and brushing twice a day is much more effective than simply brushing alone. When you use floss, you’re specifically targeting the plague in those tight spaces where your toothbrush in ineffective.

Gum Health

Flossing is the best way to remove the tiny particles of food that get caught under your gums which eventually cause decay or tartar. Tartar build-up is the number one cause of gingivitis, and can also cause more serious oral health issues. One of the most common issues is severe gum disease called periodontitis, which can result in bone and tooth loss.

Lower Dental Bills

Any activity as simple as flossing that can potentially improve your oral health and help you to avoid dental bills is worthwhile. Preventative care such as flossing and regular dentist visits will protect both your oral health and your pocket book.

Avoid Tartar

No one enjoys having the tartar scraped off their teeth when they visit the dentist. Flossing helps to fight tartar build up by removing the plaque that has accumulated around the gum line. By eliminating plaque before it hardens into tartar, you can keep your teeth and gums much healthier.
