How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist

Cosmetic dentistry is a true combination of art and science – and the success of each cosmetic procedure lies solely in the hands of the dentist you select. That is why it is so critical to choose the right, highly skilled cosmetic dentist to fit your needs.

Cosmetic dentistry entails an entirely different skill-set than the dentist you see for check-ups and cleanings every six months. In addition to a medical degree in dentistry, expert cosmetic dentists, like ours have completed extensive coursework and training in all areas of cosmetic dentistry they practice. The most skilled also teach at accredited institutions, like Dr. Bufo does at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI).

One good way to find a highly trained cosmetic dentist near you is to ask your regular dentist for a referral. You can also research what organizations cosmetic dentists near you are affiliated with. These could include organizations such as LVI, the International Academy of Comprehensive Aesthetics, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Once you have located a few potential cosmetic dentists, it never hurts to validate their credentials through licensing boards in your state and ensure none have malpractice suits against them. You can do this through the County Clerks’ office in the county each cosmetic dentist practices in. In addition, your cosmetic dentist should willingly provide you with references that should be checked.

The final step is to ensure your potential cosmetic dentist has successfully performed many of the procedures you are interested in, and has a proven track record of minimal complications.
