You know you're ready for a new smile. But when it comes to choosing the right cosmetic dentist, you feel overwhelmed. There's all kinds of credentials, unfamiliar terminology, and so many doctors to choose from. There are some important things to look for, whether you're just starting your search, or you feel like you have been looking for the right dentist forever. Read on to find out what you should be looking for in a cosmetic dentist.
1. Personal, Customized Cosmetic Dentistry Process
We believe that cosmetic dentistry should never be a cookie-cutter experience. No two smiles are alike, which means each person will need a treatment plan customized for their unique needs. Your smile is your way of greeting the world around you. Would you trust your smile makeover to someone that's not an expert in their field? Our office is known for our custom cosmetic dentistry process that allows the patient to contribute their input every step of the way so that they are more than thrilled with the final outcome.
2. Cosmetic Dentistry Experience and Expertise
Dr. Craig Carlson has over 40 years of experience not only creating beautiful smiles, but completely transforming lives with his cosmetic dentistry expertise. Patients have traveled from all over the world (even as far as South Africa!) for cosmetic dentistry treatment at our office. Dr. Carlson feels it is incredibly important to keep up with the latest in dental technology and processes, so he commits time each month to attend conferences and continuing education seminars. He is skilled at treating patients of all ages and dental backgrounds, and strives to provide personal, high-quality service to every patient that comes in our office.
