Michael Kosdon, DDS provides tips for finding a cosmetic dentist that can help patients renew the appearance of their teeth for a more beautiful smile.
New York, NY – According to Dr. Michael Kosdon, a cosmetic dentist in New York City, many of his patients are interested in much more than simply maintaining healthy teeth and gums. In fact, they are often searching for aesthetic enhancements that can address tooth imperfections and help them achieve more of a “movie-star smile.” Whether his patients are suffering from cracked, chipped, stained, discolored or even missing teeth, Dr. Kosdon says there is a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help individuals successfully rejuvenate their smiles. With that in mind, Dr. Kosdon recently discussed some general things he feels people should look out for as they research potential cosmetic dentists.
Dr. Kosdon says taking the time to look into a cosmetic dentist’s credentials is very important, noting that higher levels of training is often a good sign of a dentist’s experience and commitment to procedures designed to improve cosmetic issues affecting their teeth.
He explains that, while many dentists offer commonly performed cosmetic dentistry treatments such as porcelain veneers, not all of these dentists have undergone the same level of training. According to Dr. Kosdon, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is one professional organization that requires dentists to go through a certification process, helping to ensure that their members have enhanced knowledge, training, and skill specifically focused on cosmetic procedures. Additionally, he believes that many of the top cosmetic dentists are committed to continuing dental education in order to stay abreast of the latest advancements in the field. Since cosmetic dentists must combine their training with a developed artistic eye, Dr. Kosdon further recommends that prospective patients should carefully review before-and-after photos and testimonials of each doctor they are considering to learn more about the results experienced by previous patients.
At his own practice, Dr. Kosdon says he uses the initial consultation and oral examination as a time to carefully listen to his patient’s unique goals and recommend which procedure or combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures can best suit the person’s needs. He notes that some of his most popular options include professional teeth whitening treatments, porcelain veneers, and dental implants, which can provide patients with missing teeth an advanced alternative to traditional dentures. Dr. Kosdon says individuals who have multiple cosmetic dental imperfections can often benefit from a total smile makeover – a procedure that combines a number of treatments for a more complete smile rejuvenation.
Overall, Dr. Kosdon says, the field of cosmetic dentistry has seen many advances in the last several years and more options are available to patients than ever before. He advises those who are considering cosmetic dental procedures to thoroughly research prospective dentists and be sure to have all of their questions answered before deciding to undergo a specific treatment.
