Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist – Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
Find Your Partner for Your Ideal Smile
Whether you want to whiten your teeth, replace missing teeth, or make other improvements to your smile, it is important that you work with a dentist who will give you the outcome you desire. However, finding the right cosmetic dentist in Ponte Vedra Beach may be easier said than done. We’re here to help you out. Be sure to consider the following factors during your search.
Most dentists’ websites have information about their experience and training. You can find out if they are committed to continuing education, how long they have been practicing, and other factors that may have a bearing on how qualified a dentist is to work on your smile.
Professional memberships provide training to dentists. They also offer accreditations that serve as a testament to a dentist’s commitment to excelling at what they do. For example, Dr. Kristopher Harth of our practice is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, which is an honor achieved by less than 1% of dentists.
3. Payment Options
Insurance does not typically cover cosmetic treatments. Therefore, you should choose a cosmetic dentist who offers flexible payment options.
Take a look at a practice’s operating hours. Since many cosmetic treatments require multiple treatments to complete, you should work with a dentist whose schedule works well with yours.
Is the practice within a reasonable driving distance of your home or workplace? You may be working with a dentist for your regular oral healthcare as well as cosmetic procedures, so you do not want to have to travel far.
6. Time Requirements
Ask any potential dentist if they have any vacations or other time constraints that might affect your treatment timeline.
7. Technology & Anesthesia
The last thing you want is a dentist who is stuck in the past. Doctors who use tools like digital impressions, soft tissue lasers, and other advanced technology are in a better position to provide you with the top-quality care you deserve. If you experience any degree of dental anxiety, you should also ask whether any types of sedation are available.
Do you click with a dentist’s personality? Is their staff friendly? Do you feel comfortable asking questions? They should treat you like a part of your dental care team — because you are!
