Questions When Choosing An Invisalign Cosmetic Dentist

Written by Dr. McKay on Nov 6, 2014

When you take the time to choose a dentist that is right for you, you set yourself up for success in dentistry! If you have been thinking about taking your smile to the next level with Invisalign treatment, there are a few things that you should talk to your dentist about before moving forward. In this short article our Toluca Lake Invisalign dentist will help you make a list of things to consider before you pick an Invisalign provider.

First of all, you want to make sure that you are working with a dentist who has experience using Invisalign technology. Feel free to ask your dentist how many Invisalign cases he or she has completed. When you work with an experienced Invisalign dentist, you’ll have more confidence throughout the cosmetic process. The dentist with whom you are talking may even have achieved a special designation from Invisalign—for example, “Preferred Provider,” “Premier Preferred Provider,” and “Elite Preferred Provider.”

Next, see if your potential dentist has any before and after pictures that you can see. Many dentists keep before and after pictures of their patients, so that future patients can better visualize their post-treatment results. Additionally, you might want to check out any testimonials from the dentist’s past patients.

It’s also important that you address scheduling flexibility with your Invisalign dentist. Invisalign treatment does require the patient to come in frequently to receive new aligners and to have quick cosmetic check ups. So talk to your dentist about how often you’ll have these appointments, and the office’s scheduling options.

Once you have gathered the information that you need about your cosmetic dentist, you will be able to make an informed and confident decision about pursuing dental treatment. If you want to learn more from our Toluca Lake Invisalign dentist, please give our office a call!
