You have smile defects that hurt your self-confidence. You want a dental makeover so you can smile broadly and show your real personality. Which Cherry Hill cosmetic dentist is best for your needs? More likely than not, he’s Barry Polansky DMD.
Learn the Dentist’s Background
Most experienced cosmetic dentists are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and other organizations such as the American Academy of General Dentistry. Check the dentist’s website to see if he or she has membership in professional organizations because they indicate dedication to peer accountability, continuing education and sharing of information with colleagues.
Additionally, read through the dentist’s website, or call your local dental society or dental school, to learn what educational degrees the dentist has. Look for training in aesthetic services.
For instance, Dr. Polansky is a lecturer on all things dental. He is a teacher and authors continuing education texts for other dental professionals. He maintains on on-site dental lab, Niche Dental Studio, guaranteeing patients state of the art restorations and cosmetic work which is individually designed and artistically executed.
Your cosmetic dentist and his or her team should have a patient-centered attitude. Contact the office to arrange a tour of the facility, meet the staff and the doctor. When you ask questions, you should receive friendly, detailed answers. The office atmosphere should be relaxed and the staff, welcoming.
Additionally, read online reviews. For instance, Healthgrades.com is a good choice. Review the dentist’s website for links to patient testimonials. Many cosmetic dentists have online galleries with before and after pictures displaying the patient smiles.
In addition, inquire what dentists friends or coworkers prefer. Word of mouth is a great source of accurate information.
The Right Treatments
Today’s best cosmetic dentists offer a wide array of aesthetic dental treatments–services which improve the color, size, configuration and alignment of healthy teeth. For instance, Dr. Polansky offers the following cosmetic services:
- Zoom! Professional Teeth Whitening Applied with customized acrylic trays or as an in-office treatment, hydrogen peroxide gel lifts out stains from diet, smoking and wear and tear. Teeth brighten by several shades of color without dental sensitivity.
- Porcelain Veneers These thin shells of dental-grade ceramic are tooth-shaped and colored to match surrounding teeth. Bonded to the front side of chipped, stained or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers create durable smiles that are straight and beautiful.
- Composite Resin Bonding This cost-sparing process repairs fine cracks, small chips, gaps and mild overcrowding. Tooth-colored and durable, composite resin is a good choice for smiles with minor defects.
