  4. 5 Things to look out for when choosing a cosmetic dentist?

Hi, My name is Dr Zina Mahdi, and I am a cosmetic dentist here at the Northern Dental Design at Epping in Melbourne.

I was talking to our patient, Ella from Epping the other day, during her smile makeover consultation, where she mentioned that it was really confusing for her to figure out which dentist to choose to help her achieve her dream smile. So I thought I’d make a video to share with you five things you should look out for when you’re choosing your cosmetic dentist.

The dentist’s expertise. Is the dentist you are choosing just good at general dentistry? Or are they passionate about dental implants? Have they had further education in cosmetic dentistry? Every dentist has a different passion and a different skill set. With myself for example, I’ve been working as a cosmetic dentist for over 15 years. It is my passion to change people’s lives by changing their smiles. So you need to make sure you are going to a dentist who is passionate about cosmetic dentistry and have been doing it for a very long time.

What technology do they have, to support and help them achieve the best result? There are many new technologies available for cosmetic dentistry, like Digital Smile Design, 3D scanners, and 3D dental x-rays. You should always enquire about what the dentist has available for you. All these tools will help your procedure run more smoothly and give you a perfect result.

The choice of material by your cosmetic dentist. The materials that are used and the ceramics that fabricate your jaw. You must remember you are paying for the quality of the material used in your procedure and the expertise of the technician. Are the technicians using low-quality materials or the best and highest materials on the market? What’s technicians experience? You need to always ask the question like where is the lab located, in Australia or overseas? So the choice of material by the cosmetic dentist will have a significant impact on the result of your smile and how natural they look.

Payment plan options. To achieve that perfect healthy smile can be a significant investment. Does your dentist offer payment plans? We want to provide you with the best option, to help support you. So we offer payment plans so you can get all the desired treatment done without having the financial stress.

Finally, the fifth thing to consider is the Culture and dentist personality. Will you feel comfortable to ask the dentist the questions you have on your mind? Are they clear with their treatment? Do they give you the printed quotes? At Northern Dental Design, you will always get a printed quote and a personal coordinator for all your cosmetic work. You will be able to contact them at any time with any questions, big or small.

All these five factors come into play in picking the right cosmetic dentist for you. Make sure you really are confident with your choice and pick the right person for you.
