If you do your research on your cosmetic dentist of choice, you will already have found out how good he/she is at doing cosmetic dentistry treatments. It is preferable to know how successful other people’s treatments were and all good cosmetic dentists should have a portfolio of before and after photographs of their patients. They should also provide a testimonial book of letters from previous satisfied patients. Ultimately you should have trust in your cosmetic dentist; if he is genuinely caring of his patients he will do the utmost to provide you with the best treatment he is able to.
When looking for a good Cosmetic Dentist always ask for a free consultation first. Get a feel for the practice and staff; it’s true what they say about 1st impressions. Always:
- Ask to see before and after photos of past patients.
- Ask how many times a day they do the type of treatment you require.
- Ask to see their Testimonial Book. A good Cosmetic Dentist will have a record of testimonials kept from happy patients ready to hand or even on display.
If your dentist is as good as he says he is then he will have many happy, smiling, confident patients in his practice. A good dentist will have people talking about him to others and he will also get many people referred to him by existing happy patients.A good dentist will keep up with the latest technology and only use the best quality products available to him. If he is a cosmetic dentist he will also use the best technicians to make his crowns, bridges, inlays and veneers.
If you notice any changes to your mouth then you should book an appointment with the dentist as soon as possible! It may not necessarily be cancer, it could be an ulcer or you could even have burnt your mouth without realising but the Dentist should be able to put your mind at rest. If they think further investigation is required then they would refer you to see a specialist who may carry out tests to determine what the white patch may be. Any changes in your mouth or even any part of your body shouldn’t be ignored, its always best to get these checked out.
It is understandable that a bad experience in the dental chair in the past may make you scared to visit a dentist. To find a good dentist that empathises with very nervous people, you have to do your research. Ask friends and family if they have a dentist that is good with nervous people and then make an appointment to just go and talk to them about your fears. If you have no luck then search the internet and call the dental practices and ask them questions about how they deal with nervous patients. In extreme cases of anxiety some dental practices offer sedation, which does not mean being out cold but just in a very relaxed state.
Dr Jas Sagoo, Principal Dentist at Perfect Smile Spa, prides himself on the care and attention he shows patients. He never pressurises patients into having treatment, instead relying on before and after photos, and testimonials, from previous happy patients who have had treatment with us. These speak volumes about the kind of dental treatment we do here.
The practice is designed to change your perception as to how a dental practice should look. The lemongrass essential oil we burn is aimed to relax you, and remove the ‘clinical dental smell’. Free Internet access is available to all our patients and their guests, and a good selection of refreshments is also available.
The staff at Perfect Smile Spa are trained to such a level, that the knowledge they have about cosmetic treatment is almost at par with a cosmetic dentist. We like our staff to be trained like this, because many of our nervous patients, when they first visit the practice, often ask our staff numerous questions about the range of treatments we offer.
