Cosmetic Dentist in Houston Shares Advice on Choosing the Right Doctor for Your Smile
Dr. Wayde Fawcett of the Fawcett Center for Dentistry shares tips on how to find the right cosmetic dentist for patients’ needs.
Houston, TX – Dr. Wayde Fawcett, a general and cosmetic dentist in Houston, understands how difficult it can be to find a cosmetic dentist patients can trust. In a recent blog post titled, “How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist,” Dr. Fawcett shares insight into what patients should look for when searching for a cosmetic dentist.
First, Dr. Fawcett stresses how important it is for people looking for cosmetic dentists to assess the candidate’s academic background and experience. He believes any scholastic pursuits after dental school can be a strong indicator of how much they are committed to improving their skills and giving their patients the highest level of dental care. Dr. Fawcett also recommends asking prospective dentists if they hold membership in the Academy of General Dentistry and/or the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, since those organizations encourage members to pursue ongoing education. Dr. Fawcett advises,“One of the most significant signs of a dentist committed to providing the very latest in dentistry is achieving a Fellowship or Mastership level in the Academy of General Dentistry.”
It’s also important to ask about their technology and dental laboratory partnerships, says Dr. Fawcett. He notes that modern technology and collaborations with reputable dental laboratories, which produce customized dental restorations such as crowns and porcelain veneers, can help increase a patient’s chances of getting results that look natural and meet his or her expectations. “I use several labs. I also have an in-house dental lab that utilizes the CEREC® system to create our own crowns in minutes. This allows us to customize the colorings of our patient’s crowns and veneers. The ceramic materials we use provides the best blend of strength and esthetics.” In an additional blog post titled “Four Common Misconceptions About Porcelain Dental Veneers,” Dr. Fawcett expands upon the benefits of high-quality dental materials and their importance in crafting natural-looking restorations.
Finally, Dr. Fawcett suggests looking at the prospective dentist’s website and before-and-after galleries to get an idea of their skill level, technologies available at the practice, and results experienced by previous patients.
Dr. Fawcett recognizes how important it is to evaluate dentists, and says he hopes that individuals searching for a new cosmetic dentist thoroughly research their options and do not hesitate to ask questions.
