How to Select the Right Cosmetic Dentist

Cosmetic dentistry is about more than just your looks. From Invisalign and veneers to in-office teeth whitening, Marlborough Dental Centre has all you need for a healthy, beautiful smile. 

Cosmetic dentistry consists of the treatments and procedures used by dentists to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Some of these treatments include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Fillings
  • Veneers/Crowns
  • Dental Implants
  • Invisalign

Whatever your dental needs and aesthetic goals, the dentists at Marlborough Dental Centre are qualified in a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments to ensure that your teeth look beautiful while always remaining healthy.

How Cosmetic Dentistry Helps You Achieve a Healthy, Beautiful Smile

Are you wondering how a dentist can bring you more confidence and help improve your health? Here are several cosmetic dentistry treatments that not only make your smile beautiful, but ensure your oral and overall well-being:


Veneers are custom-made for each patient and highly resemble your own teeth. They can fix problems such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Cracked/damaged enamel
  • Noticeable gaps between teeth

Dental crowns cover a damaged tooth to restore its normal shape and appearance. A dental bridge is used to replace missing teeth.

Dental Bridges

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is an affordable and innovative cosmetic dentistry procedure that gets rid of stains and whitens the natural pigment of your teeth, giving you a sparkling, healthy smile.

Whitening Options


Invisalign is used to correct the position, orientation and appearance of your teeth so that they look and function better.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure that repairs damaged, decayed or discolored teeth using a material that looks just like your tooth’s enamel.

How to Choose the Right Cosmetic Dentist

To achieve the aesthetic results you desire when it comes to your teeth, it’s extremely important to choose a cosmetic dentist who is trained and experienced in the procedure you want.

When cosmetic dentistry is done right, it can help you have a beautiful smile and significantly improve your quality of life. Here are some of the things you should keep in mind when selecting a cosmetic dentist:

Don't Be in a Hurry

The majority of cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective, not emergencies. Taking your time to choose a cosmetic dentist, as well as understand the different dental procedures and methods used, will be crucial to your emotional comfort and overall well-being.

If in doubt, schedule a consultation with the local cosmetic dentists in your area to help you make a more informed and confident decision.

Cosmetic Dental Training

To be able to carry out any cosmetic dental treatment, a dentist should:

  • Go through a rigorous post-graduate training
  • Have an artistic eye
  • Have the technical expertise required for a safe & effective procedure

REMEMBER: Cosmetic dentistry develops fast, and to achieve safe and optimal results requires technologically advanced equipment and in-depth training. The success of the procedure relies heavily on the dentist’s medical judgement plus a high degree of excellence.


During your first consultation visit, try to see whether the dentist and his/her support team appear to be patient-focused. A reliable cosmetic dentist will always listen to your plans for your teeth as well as giving their own advice on how to create a beautiful, healthy smile.

Other Considerations

When you are selecting a cosmetic dentist, it’s important to take a tour of the office and ask about the technology and equipment used in the procedure. For total peace of mind when undergoing cosmetic dentistry, ask for references and ask for ‘before and after’ pictures of past patients.
