How do I find a smile makeover cosmetic dentist?
This is of vital importance as the results of the process will depend upon the skill and experience of the dentist. You want to be certain that you have found the best person for the job as well as being someone you like and trust.
Your dentist should be a member of a professional organisation such as the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) or the General Dental Council, and have many years of training behind them.
There are many websites which contain information about cosmetic dentists. Many of these will have a database or adverts for cosmetic dentists and clinics such as Cosmetic Dentistry Guide (www.cosmeticdentistryguide.co.uk) and Cosmetic Dentist (www.cosmeticdentist.co.uk).
If you know of anyone who has had a smile makeover, such as a friend or family member then ask them for the name of their dentist. A word of mouth (no pun intended!) recommendation is always useful and can save you some time as well.
So, be prepared to spend a fair amount of time looking for a cosmetic dentist. There are many highly qualified and experienced dentists out there but you need to be sure that you have found the right one for you.
It is a good idea to draw up a shortlist of potential candidates and speak to each of them individually. This will help you to make up your mind.
The British Dental Association: ‘BDA Smile – the Dental Site for Patients’ is another good resource. It contains information on how to find a dentist.
