Selecting the right dentist to perform your cosmetic procedure is the most crucial part of getting your dream smile right. Like any of your investments, it’s important that you do your homework, and that you do not fall for quick fix solutions that seem too good to be true.
There is no board-certified specialty in cosmetic dentistry. Which means that any general dentist is technically certified to give you the “smile makeover” that you’ve always dreamed of.
The problem is that in reality, it takes many years and thousands of hours of experience to truly master the art of any cosmetic procedure. Yet, if you were to pick up the phone today and called 10 dental clinics, the majority of them would say they perform smile makeovers, full mouth restorations and porcelain veneers.
But ask yourself this, if you are making an investment that you hope to last you the next 20 years, and you are trusting someone to design and craft your new smile do you really want a dentist that spends most of their days doing fillings, checkups and more general procedures to give you the dream smile and return on your investment that you are looking for?
At The Smile Stylist we live and breath cosmetic procedures. Dr. Kaloti has over 20 years of experience in Canada and the US and uses his experience and skill set to help you make the best decisions regarding your oral health while ensuring to deliver you an unforgettable smile.
It’s important to note that roughly 20% of our cosmetic procedures are on patients who were not happy with previous results performed by other dentists or who’s work had fallen off.
Things have changed in cosmetic dentistry. The very top dentists are now using game changing dental technology that allows us to scan your face enabling us to design a perfect tailored smile using your bone structure and facial features. Don’t be fooled by cheap technology that uses tablets used in house to take your scans or using no scans at all, having the right technology will allow us to design a perfect smile just for you. At The Smile Stylist we won’t even do a smile makeover without this scan technology anymore.
We’ve already established how important the technology component is. Think of the facial scans as photoshop, or any video editing equipment.
They are tools that one can use to do incredible work; However, just because you have an incredible set of tools does not mean that:
1) You’ll know how to use them properly or to the best of your ability
2) That you are a very good artist
Your smile is important to us and something that you’ll be using every day for the rest of your life. Crafting unforgettable smiles is an art form and one that takes thousands of hours to master. We are passionate about delivering the very best and that is what you should be expecting out of your dentist.
The ONLY people that you should trust to put your oral health first, are dentists. Any body else trying to give you advice or send you to a particular set of dentists are just trying to make a quick buck off you.
This is a massive decision that you are making and we encourage you to visit a number of dentists that you find appealing in order to help you make the best decision for you.
Don’t fall into the trap and end up having to spend twice as much money in the long run because you didn’t do your homework. Ask the right questions and trust your gut!
Getting cosmetic work done is a personal decision that takes time. You should never be bullied or pushed into a decision. Make sure you choose a dentist that is there to guide you and explain to you why he recommends a certain procedure over an another and one that feels confident enough for you to go get a second opinion.
Most cosmetic procedures, like porcelain veneers, full mouth restorations or smile makeovers should not be rushed. If you are being sold on speed, this is a major red flag.
Getting it right, and making sure you are happy and comfortable with your new smile takes time. Trying to deliver your case as quickly as possible and spinning it as great service is often a case of trying to pump as many patients through the door in an attempt to maximize revenue, that or its just a lack or expertise and care in the true craftsmanship of what it means to deliver an unforgettable smile.
At the Smile Stylist, we sacrifice speed for perfection. We want you to have your temps in long enough for you to learn what it would feel like to have your brand new smile so that we can work together to make the little adjustments (which in reality are not so little) that will take your satisfaction of your new smile from a 6 or 7 to a 10.
