Do you have a tooth that’s been chipped or cracked? Maybe you have developed cavities in one or more teeth. Perhaps you have old restorations that are damaged or just don’t look like they used to. If that’s the case, you need a reconstructive dentist.
There are many dentists in the Las Vegas area, including Summerlin, that offer reconstructive dentistry, but how do you find the one that is best for you? Here are some things to look for.
A Well-Trained Dentist
All dentists are technically trained to act as reconstructive dentists. But you have to ask whether you want a dentist with the bare minimum of training or if you would rather trust your smile to someone who has pursued advanced training in reconstructive dentistry and other areas of dentistry. They may be able to provide you with the service you’re looking for. At the very least, a dentist who has pursued advanced training has shown that he’s dedicated to providing his patients with the best possible care, rather than just providing care according to what he learned years ago.
Another area that sets some dentists apart is the equipment they utilize in their office. It’s the same as with training: some dentists are content to use the same techniques they’re used to, the ones that have been around for decades. Others want to ensure they are providing their patients with the best care, and therefore are constantly evaluating new technologies and techniques to ensure they can offer improved procedures to their patients.
What ultimately matters is the results a reconstructive dentist can deliver. Carefully evaluate a dentist’s results online by looking at their before and after gallery as well as any reviews or testimonials you can find.
A Friendly Dentist
Finally, don’t neglect that you want a dentist you like and can work with. If you find a reconstructive dentist you like, you will be happy to work with him again and again for years to come, instead of constantly looking for a new dentist each time you need work done.
If you find a dentist you like, you can even make them your regular preventive dentist and start seeing them every six months to reduce your need for reconstructive dentistry in the future.
