Cosmetic dentistry is very popular in Queensland, Australia today and with the developments of the past few years, there are many ways in which a dentist can improve your appearance. If you are thinking of having your teeth whitened or straightened, here are a few tips to help you find the right dental practice.
1. Cosmetic Speciality
Your search should only include dentists who specialise in cosmetic dentistry and whether you are looking for a cosmetic dentist Enoggera or any other part of Queensland can offer, a Google search will give you a list of local dentists and you can begin to browse their websites.
2. Reasonable Distance
It is never a good idea to drive for a couple of hours to see your dentist, especially when you factor in the drive home, after the treatment. The more local, the better, so when you begin your search, start with the nearest and work your way out to the next town and so on.
3. Qualified Dentist
It almost goes without saying that your dentist should be suitably qualified for the type of treatment you require.
4. State of the Art Facilities
Cosmetic dentistry involves an array of special machines and systems and the clinic should be fully equipped and should have already incorporated the cutting edge technology.
All dentists have to start somewhere and while there’s nothing wrong with that, you ideally want an experienced dentist to carry out the treatment. Ideally, the dentist would have at least 5 years’ experience in the kind of treatment you are looking for and this information should be available on the website.
6. Friendly and Approachable
We have a unique relationship with a person who works inside our mouths and it is essential that you meet – and like – the dentist. Most dentists are friendly and approachable people, which makes the patient feel at ease.
While you want the very best treatment, affordability is something we must always consider, so do make comparisons when on the hunt for prices.
8. Payment Plan Option
Some dentists realise that people are not always able to fork out a large amount for dental treatment, so there are dental payment plans, where you can have the treatment right away and pay in monthly instalments.
9. Child Friendly
Chances are the dentist will become the family dental provider, so if you have kids, make sure that your dentist is child-friendly. Dental surgeries used to be frightening places, yet much progress has been made and most clinics have a relaxed feel about them.
10. The Right Diagnosis
There are often several treatment options, and you obviously want the best possible solution. Typically, the dentist would explain the various treatments in such a way that you can make an informed decision.
If you happen to know someone who has recently had cosmetic dentistry and they were happy with the treatment, then that is a strong indicator that he or she has a good dentist. Failing that, all of the above should help you to make the right selection.
