Dr. Linda Weinfield Reveals How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist

Dr. Linda Weinfield Discusses What Patients Should Look for When Evaluating Potential Cosmetic Dentists

OAK LAWN, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - When considering cosmetic dentistry options, many people are searching for a dentist who can rejuvenate the appearance of their teeth and help them feel more confident when they smile. Dr. Linda Weinfield of Dental Implant Associates - Cosmetic Dentistry Centers says, while patients look for a cosmetic dentist to help them reach their goals, it is important to know which questions they should ask in order to increase the chances that their expectations will be met.

The Oak Lawn cosmetic dentist recently published a blog series on the practice's website, beginning with "How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist Part 1," that reveals tips on things to consider. Dr. Weinfield says researching or asking about a prospective cosmetic dentist's training and experience is significant. She advises patients to look for skilled dental professionals who have advanced training beyond their initial degree and residency. Dr. Weinfield also says patients should inquire as to how many years of experience performing cosmetic dentistry procedures they have, and ask about details regarding the type of dental laboratories they use.

In the second blog post, "How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist Part 2," Dr. Weinfield tells individuals to examine before-and-after photos of a potential dentist's work on previous patients. She also says, if the dentist's laboratory work for procedures such as crowns, porcelain veneers, or other treatments is outsourced, then patients should ask if it is a Certified Dental Laboratory. According to Dr. Weinfield, prospective patients should also select a cosmetic dentist who strikes them as someone who will thoroughly discuss every aspect of a procedure with them. Dr. Weinfield says open and honest communication is essential for patients to be well-educated on treatment processes and what they can expect.

Dr. Weinfield advises patients to consider multiple factors when searching for a cosmetic dentist to trust with their smile. She says, by engaging each dentist with detailed questions and reviewing samples of their previous dental work, patients can be well on their way to finding a talented cosmetic dentist they feel comfortable with.
