Our Seminole, FL dental office handles many cosmetic dentistry needs. It’s interesting to note how our cosmetic dentistry services differ from our more traditional services.
Improvements, not fixes
Most people see their dental offices as a place to go to have things fixed. Cosmetic dentistry is seen as a way to improve someone’s smile. In most cases, patients that ask our Seminole, FL staff about cosmetic dentistry are looking to:
- Feel more confident in their smile
- Make a better first impression
- Help their work results (models, sales representatives, professional speakers, executives)
The mix of services used is different
Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t start with things that address pain, like root canals and fillings. The mix of services commonly used in cosmetic dentistry is more like:
- Teeth Whitening
- Tooth Reshaping
- Cosmetic Bonding
The patient/dentist consultation part is emphasized
While all good dentists should have a focus on having good communication skills, the cosmetic dentistry process involved additional customer service aspects. The dentist may create “Before and After” pictures of how the dental tactics can improve a smile. The “After” pictures may be mock-ups of how your smile could look if a procedure was performed. This allows you to get a better idea of what the results will look like.
Another part of the customer service is to discuss expectations about the results of procedures. The patient should have a clear view of the expenses, time investment and results that are anticipated from a set of procedures. Patients also want to know how long the effects will last and whether there are any dental care or maintenance steps they will need to take.
As a patient, taking your time with cosmetic dentistry and finding a dentist you like can be a huge part of enjoying the process and its results. If you dread your normal dentist visits, think through if it’s because of the dental office and the experiences you have with the staff. In today’s competitive marketplace, there’s no reason you can’t have a great dentist office that also has great customer care practices.
