Mohnish Mohan Mukkar How to Choose a Cosmetic
Dentist
  • According to Mohnish Mohan Mukkar Since cosmetic
    dentistry is not considered as an area of
    specialization by the American Dental
    Association, some general dentists present
    themselves as cosmetic dentists. How will you
    know if a certain cosmetic dentist can be
    trusted? Here are some tips to consider in
    looking for a cosmetic dentist.

3
Training
  • A cosmetic dentist who has undergone proper
    training has taken postgraduate courses on
    porcelain veneers, as well as cosmetic dental
    procedures such as laser dentistry, all-white
    restorations and Envisaging. Patients should ask
    their potential dentist about the cosmetic
    courses he/she has completed.

4
Associations
  • The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is the
    most popular association for cosmetic dentists.
    Being a member of the AACD does not necessarily
    mean that a dentist is good, but at least it
    shows that the dentist is serious enough about
    his line of work to spend for membership.

5
Payment Options
  • Health insurance does not cover cosmetic dental
    enhancements. So patients will want to choose a
    dentist who accepts credit card payments or
    provides payment schemes.

6
Scheduling
  • What are the office hours of the dentist? Does it
    fit the schedule of the patient? Will the dentist
    treat the whole family as well?

7
Location
  • Usually, cosmetic dental enhancements require
    several visits. It would be more convenient if
    the dentists office is accessible to a patients
    home or work.

8
Time Required
  • Dental enhancement may take time to complete. The
    patient has to make sure that the dentist is
    available during his/her treatment.

9
Technology and Anesthesia
  • Dentists that perform modern procedures make use
    of advanced technology like dental laser, digital
    X-rays, intramural cameras and chair-side
    monitors, among others. Mohnish Mohan Mukkar
    wants to tell you that patients can inquire from
    the dentist about the available technology in
    his/her office. They may want to know the kind of
    anesthesia/sedation that will be used.

10
Comfort
  • Does the patient feel at ease in the dentists
    office? Are the personnel friendly? Is it okay to
    ask questions and are the answers acceptable?

11
Before and After Photos Cases
  • An expert cosmetic dentist has an album or online
    images of before and after cases that can be
    reviewed by patients. Patients should request
    their dentist to show a case like theirs.

12
Previews
  • Is digital imaging offered by the dentist for
    patients to see the predicted results before
    committing to treatment?
  • Do not just allow any dentist to perform a dental
    procedure on you. Cosmetic dentistry done
    successfully is safe, efficient and lasting
    however, any poorly done dental procedure can
    lead to complications. Patients should be open
    when interviewing their dentist. A number of
    dentists often give a cosmetic consultation for
    free so patients could meet and talk about their
    expectations.
  • When a dentist meets the majority of patients
    criteria, they can precede with examination and
    pay attention to his/her treatment plan. They
    should talk about scheduling and financing.
    Patients should feel at ease and confident in the
    dental office. By the Mohnish Mohan Mukkar when a
    smile is beautiful and made to last, it can boost
    a persons self-confidence, and pave the way for
    a lot of opportunities he/she has never imagined.
