What is a Cosmetic Dentist?
A cosmetic dentist has undergone additional training in restorative and aesthetic dentistry procedures that can improve oral health, dental structure, and the appearance of the teeth and gums. Treatments performed by a cosmetic dentist may include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and/or porcelain crowns, which can change the shape, color, size, and alignment of the teeth for a more beautiful smile.

Dr. Kosdon knows the impact a smile can have on someone’s life and self confidence. Even though Dr. Kosdon was the son of a dentist, he was not born with a nice set of teeth. In fact, his teeth were very short and discolored with large gaps or spaces between them. Growing up he was always embarrassed to smile, he often covered his teeth when laughing. Fortunately, advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry gave him a chance to improve his smile. Dr. Kosdon had porcelain veneers done to correct some of these blemishes, and he has not stopped smiling since. Experiencing his own smile transformation was the driving factor in his passion for cosmetic dentistry, and it is why he chose to specialize in smile makeovers and porcelain veneers.

How to Find the Best Cosmetic Dentist in New York City
With his tremendous enthusiasm for cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Kosdon feels that all patients should be well educated when making significant decisions. Choosing a qualified cosmetic dentist with the advanced training and vast experience is the most important factor in the short term and long term results of a cosmetic dental procedure and your dental health.
These days, patients often begin their search for a skilled cosmetic dentist with diligent internet research, narrow down their options, and then schedule consultations with the dentists they believe may be most suitable. To aid in the selection process, Dr. Kosdon has outlined a comprehensive list of recommendations to help you determine which cosmetic dentist is right for you:
- Get information about the dentist’s credentials and find out if they are in good standing within the professional community.
- Speak to current patients to find out about their overall satisfaction and get a sense for the quality of the dentist’s work.
- View patient testimonials and check online ratings and reviews.
- Ask about whether the dentist continues to pursue training in the latest dental technology and methods of treatment. Inquire about the technology used at the practice.
- Examine before-and-after photos of patients’ treatment results to ensure the work meets your cosmetic needs and goals.
- Ask the dentist to describe his or her interpretation of a “custom” approach to cosmetic dentistry.
- During the consultation phase, make sure you are comfortable with the dentist. Building trust and a solid rapport is essential.
- Inquire about the process used to fabricate restorations. Are high-quality materials offered? Are realistic aesthetics and long-lasting results a priority? What is the dentist’s relationship to the ceramist or dental lab?
