How to Choose a Toronto Dentist

Choosing a Toronto dentist is important for your ongoing oral health. Your dentist is normally responsible for checking things such as your teeth and gums. If you require additional dental work, your dentist may recommend a cosmetic dentist. If your dentist does not provide you with a recommendation, you can always ask coworkers, friends or family members who have used a cosmetic dentist for a referral.

             Cosmetic dentists normally provide dental procedures that can assist in enhancing your appearance by giving your teeth a makeover. These procedures can include things such as laser teeth whitening or adding porcelain veneers. You want to be sure that the cosmetic professional holds a membership with theAmericanAcademy of Cosmetic Dentistry. This organization requires its members to adhere to intensive study, passing an examination and following ethical standards. You also want to inquire with the specialist to see before and after pictures of work that they have done on some of their patients. Be sure that these are actual photos of real patients.

             When you go for your initial consultation, the cosmetic professional will examine any prior dental work you have had, take x-rays and impressions of the upper and lower teeth, as well as talking to you about what procedure you want done and what your expectations are. The dentist will then create a treatment plan and discuss with you how the procedure will be done, materials that will be used and what the results will be.
