Kevin,

I’m glad you’re asking about this before just going to your family dentist for treatment. ┬áMost patients don’t know that cosmetic dentistry isn’t a recognized specialty. That means any general dentist, no matter how much or little training they have in cosmetic procedures can call themselves a cosmetic dentist.

If you want a guaranteed gorgeous smile, then the best dentist to go to is one who is accredited with the American Academy fo Cosmetic Dentistry. Accreditation is different than membership.  To get accredited you have to pass stringent tests both written and oral, as well as demonstrate your artistic ability in a variety of sample cases that the dentist performed on actual patients.

It’s worth it even if you have to drive to a nearby city to get to one. If you’re going to invest the money, you might as well get the most skilled, artistic dentist to create your new smile.
