How to Find a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp MI

Mouth care

The problem for someone typing in Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp is that the American Dental Association does not recognize a specialty called Cosmetic Dentistry. Therefore that leaves a lot of wiggle room for any dentist to call himself a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp. Googling Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp will bring up all kinds of results.

We have dozens of clients that tell us stories of how they went to see a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp and were hit with a $25k plus estimate that seemed incredibly expensive and unnecessary. And it seems that more and more dentists are being trained to sell the most expensive dentistry regardless of what the patient needs.

Every person’s situation is different. There are easy cosmetic dentistry solutions and then there are extremely difficult cosmetic dentistry challenges that may involve several different dental specialties. Specialists like: root canal specialists, periodontists, implant surgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons and orthodontists to name a few.

I’d like to give you 3 tips to finding a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp:

What kind of training and experience does he have? To become a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp, a dentist must educate himself, after dental school training. Dental schools expose students to all aspects of dentistry. It is up to the dentist Clinton Twp to hone his skills and take it to the next level after he has graduated. There are many avenues to pursue this training. With the Internet, DVD’s and onsite training, a dentist who is dedicated can expose himself to some of the finest training and instructors in the world. That being said, the best way to become a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp is to actually do cosmetic dentistry, in other words experience is the best teacher. Sure other people’s experience through continuing education will shorten the learning curve. But there is no substitute for actual in the mouth experience. I’ve been a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp area for almost 25 years now. I’ve seen a lot of different cases, new materials that come and go. I know my limitations. I know what works and doesn’t work. My work is predictable and lasts.

Tip #2: What options are available to me? As the old saying goes, ‘there’s more than one way to skin a cat.’ Typically when people think of a Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp, they think of porcelain veneers and crownsPorcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded (attached) to the outside of a tooth to correct color discrepancies, change the shape of teeth or to close unsightly gaps. These are fabricated in a laboratory and are relatively expensive. They are the Mercedes Benz of cosmetic dentistry. Did you know that there are other options available to the patient that can sometimes achieve a good result without breaking the bank? Ask your Cosmetic Dentist Clinton Twp about any other options that might be available.

Tip #3: Who does the lab work? The majority of a Cosmetic Dentists Clinton Twp work (porcelain veneers and crowns) is not fabricated in the Cosmetic Dentists Clinton Twp office. The trend for outsourcing is allowing for dentists to get their porcelain work cheaper but not as high quality. Many dentists are starting to send their work to China and many national dental labs are outsourcing to the Philippines or Puerto Rico. In fact some dentists don’t even know their dental lab work is being outsourced. So it’s important to ask the dentist about the lab work and where it is being fabricated.
