5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist

Hi, I’m Dr Rita Trak, founder of Dental & Skin Clinic here at East Bentleigh in Melbourne.

Last week, a new client, Chloe from Heatherton, had come in for a cosmetic consultation. During our conversation, she talked about how she discovered Dental & Skin Clinic. She shared with me that she saw one of her friends share an Instagram story about us and how much her friend loved our service. So she Google’d our clinic and read the reviews.

When you embark on a research journey in finding a cosmetic dentist, there are definitely a few things to consider when choosing the right dentist to take care of your smile.

And what Chloe did is just one of those things. In this video, I will cover the five things to consider in choosing the right cosmetic dentist for you.

By the time clients come to see us for their cosmetic consultation, they would have done a lot of research. They would have read our Google reviews, they would have seen our work on Instagram and they’d have a fair idea of what we do and what we’re about.

Find out how much of what they do in their day-to-day work life is actually the type of cosmetic treatment that you want. For example, if you’re looking at getting veneers, it’s important to find out what percentage of work that dentist does is actually veneers.

Look out for is to ask if the dentist will provide a preview of your smile makeover. Whether that’s in the form of a sketch, mock-up or a trial smile, it’s important that you have an idea of what your final smile makeover will look like before you actually start the process.

Make sure you know the prices before you actually book for a consultation so that you know how much to budget for. When you’re booking in for a consultation, it’s reasonable to have an idea of the price point and a practice should readily be able to provide that. They may not necessarily be able to suggest the number of veneers you will need, or the type of cosmetic treatment that you will need, because that would require a consultation. However, you should have a fair idea of the cost.

Your smile directly affects your confidence and joy. It is important that you choose the right person to take care of it. If you’re on a research journey and are looking for a cosmetic dentist to get you that perfect smile, know that you can always visit us here in Bentleigh East.
