"Finding the right cosmetic dentist"
?The process of selecting a cosmetic dentist can be a difficult and cumbersome process. Here are a few tips that you should keep in mind while selecting a cosmetic dentist: Most cosmetic dentist practices that cater to a niche market will have a website and a few sites should be your starting point in narrowing down your list of potential dentists. The websites should give you a fair idea of the services being offered by various cosmetic dentists. Client references from previous patients should be a major factor in your decision to select the cosmetic dentist. You should also visit the clinics of the selected dentists including the sterilization areas and ask about the technology and materials used in the practice. It would also be a good idea to verify that the dentists do not have a history of complaints or adverse State Dental Board action. Also consult with the different dentists as this will give you a fair idea of what they are offering. A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Delaram Hanookai will give you a fair idea of his assessment of your dental problems and the course of action in the treatment for your teeth. By being truthful, at least he will not mislead you by giving a wrong diagnosis of the recovery period. Computer imaging is an excellent tool as it gives you a photographic opportunity to see what you would look like after the treatment and if your selected clinic has this facility, then you can explain to the dentist how you would like your teeth to look like after the treatment. A good cosmetic dentist should be able to make a 3 D wax model of what your new smile would look like after undergoing the treatment and you would then have the hindsight to make any changes before the real thing is done in porcelain. Most importantly, the cosmetic dentist should be able to guide you on the post operative measures that need to be taken in order to not only maintain your smile but keep it shining for years to come.
