Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist

If you're considering changing the appearance of your smile, you owe it to yourself to do your homework and consider several important factors. Before you randomly select a dentist, think again! Great cosmetic dentistry is truly an art form, and you will want to be sure the cosmetic dentist you choose has the talent and experience to provide the results you are expecting and deserve.

Unfortunately, too many of our patients have discovered that selecting a cosmetic dentist based on fees alone can lead to disappointing and frustrating experiences. Important factors to consider in selecting the right dental professional for your smile makeover include knowledge and skills, photography, continuing education, experience, credentials, and affiliations.

Some of the things that set us apart from other practices include Dr. John's natural artistic ability, the immense knowledge he has acquired over the years from treating so many cosmetic cases, our very "hands-on" design process, and of course, his innate skills that have been nurtured and perfected over the years. When we begin your smile makeover, measurements are made by thoroughly assessing your look to make sure that your smile makeover blends with your facial aesthetics. And equally as important, many measurements are made inside and outside of your mouth to ensure that your new smile not only looks great, but it should also feel great and last a long time! Then, "the artist" Dr. John will prepare your teeth and hand-sculpt prototypes for your teeth so that you can preview your new smile before we have your custom made porcelain restorations fabricated by our highly skilled porcelain designers. The details and precision allow for a radiant smile with final restorations that are even better than you can imagine!

A serious cosmetic dentist will take photographs of every case in order to evaluate and scrutinize the final results of every smile makeover they perform. We would love the opportunity to share photos of our completed smile makeovers to give you a real sense of what is possible for your smile. For your convenience, we have included photos of our own smile makeover patients in our smile gallery, and once you visit our Jonesboro office, you will notice our office art is smiling "After Photos" of our stunning patients!

The field of cosmetic dentistry has changed dramatically over the past 25 years, and it is still rapidly evolving. Because cosmetic types of dentistry are not taught in dental school, it is important that your cosmetic dental team regularly participate in advanced continuing education to learn the latest information to provide you with the best smile possible! As an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. John attends the annual meeting of the AACD, and in the summer of 2012, he attended the prestigious, invitation-only American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry annual meeting.
