Cosmetic dentistry is a sub-specialty field that aims to improve the appearance or aesthetics of the teeth. Simply put, cosmetic dental procedures are non-essential in nature, but they do provide a host of advantages for patients, including enhanced self-confidence, improvement in the appearance of your smile, easier dental hygiene routine, and prevent grinding of teeth which may result in teeth damage.
The most common cosmetic dental procedures offered by cosmetic dentists are as follows:
- Teeth bleaching or whitening
- Composite fillings
Discoloured, deformed, chipped and missing teeth can make anybody self-conscious, with some individuals even suffering from self-esteem issues. Damaged teeth can also result in poor oral health when left untreated. The good news is that a cosmetic dentist can identify and treat these problems.
What to look for in a cosmetic dentist specialist?
Review their work
Cosmetic dental clinics in Australia typically have websites where before and after photos of actual patients are showcased for potential patients to see. A reliable and reputable cosmetic dentist will be able to provide you with these photos at the clinic during your assessment.
Check educational background and work experience
Before and after photos are not enough to ascertain the reputation and reliability of a cosmetic dentist. You must check and verify their educational background as well as their affiliation with professional organisations in Australia. It is of vital importance to check if the prospective cosmetic dentist is qualified and duly licensed to practice this subspecialty in Australia.
