Much like a fingerprint, everyone has his or her own unique set of teeth. For this reason, it is very important to select the right dentist when seeking any sort of treatment. This becomes especially important for patients looking for cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers. If you are not careful about the cosmetic dentist you choose, that dentist might not be looking at your mouth comprehensively, which can lead to a negative result. Dr. Michael Kosdon says it is extremely important to find a cosmetic dentist who will look at the overall health and condition of your whole mouth. This way, he explains, you can have a healthy, strong foundation for any cosmetic procedures. The best way to find a dentist like this is with thorough research, according to Dr. Kosdon. He says it is important to assess the dentist’s work, educational background, patient reviews, and the dental societies and organizations that the dentist is a part of. Dr. Kosdon says that experience is also a huge piece to the puzzle. He notes that dentists get better at what they do as they gain experience in their field, so it is beneficial to find a dentist who has been in practice consistently for several years.
