Cosmetic dentistry is a highly skilled area of dentistry that concentrates on altering the appearance of teeth and the smile. Most dental schools teach very little if any on the subject of cosmetic dentistry. If everyone claims to do cosmetic dentistry who can you trust that is truly skilled at the treatment? One good way is to learn more about their training and the number of cases they have performed. Ask to see photographs of their work. Find out if they are Accredited through organizations like the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as they have strict protocols, testing and standards for achieving Accreditation or Fellowship status.
