A good cosmetic dentist should be the first on your list if you are considering any type of cosmetic dentistry. An accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry should perform even a seemingly simple procedure, such as teeth whitening. You may love the dentist that you have had since high school, but if you don’t see cosmetic dentistry listed as a specialty, you need to start looking for a good cosmetic dentist.
Because Cosmetic Dentistry is not recognized by the American Dental Association as a specialty, anyone can advertise the fact. However, if a general dentist hasn’t been trained in same day dentistry, or doesn’t offer clear braces or porcelain veneers, you may need to look elsewhere.
If you are one of the thousands of people, who are shying away from cosmetic dentistry because of a bad dental restoration or a bad cosmetic dental treatment you can breathe a sigh of relief as things have certainly changed. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is the trusted source when it comes to a good cosmetic dentist.
Can Anyone Be an Accredited Fellow?
To be an accredited fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a dentist must pass all of the required cases. There are five of them. Dr. Ringer has attended the scientific sessions and successfully passed three of the five testing sessions.
Dentists who specialize in cosmetic dentistry and have years of training and continuing education to keep them up on the latest products and services should be your priority when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. If your dentist doesn’t have porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental bonding on the menu of services ask for a referral. Your general dentist should be able to recommend a good cosmetic dentist for a smile makeover or a simple cosmetic dental procedure.
Dr. Jack Ringer is an Accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and is an artist when it comes to smile makeovers. Dr. Ringer will assess your smile, your face shape, your teeth, gums and the color of your teeth to recommend cosmetic dentistry procedures that would enhance your entire body, not just your face.
If a complete mouth restoration is recommended Dr. Ringer will talk about what your idea of perfect teeth and gums are and what can be done to get you there.
The color of your teeth is just as important as the materials used to create your new porcelain veneers, dental implants, or any other dental restoration. If you have been considering silver amalgam removal, or any other cosmetic or restorative dental procedure, Dr. Ringer and his team from Dental Cosmetics Anaheim Hills will choose the best color to give you the most natural results possible.
Types of Procedures
If you have been on the fence about porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding may be the solution. Cosmetic bonding, unlike porcelain veneers can be reversed, and although the treatment will not last as long as veneers, it will still give you a beautiful smile in as little as one dental appointment.
During your appointment, Dr. Ringer will assess your face shape. The size and shape of your face is so important when it comes to a smile makeover. A big toothy grin may look great on your best friend, but probably wouldn’t do any favors for your small frame.
Customized for every patient, a full mouth reconstruction gives you a beautiful smile while giving you your life back. With a full mouth reconstruction, you can talk, eat, and enjoy living again with a new smile that will last for decades if you practice good oral hygiene.
Regardless of the procedure, the importance of an accredited cosmetic dentist cannot be stressed enough. Most people have experienced, who have a friend or family who has experienced some sort of nightmare in the dental chair with a not so certified cosmetic dentist. Everyone has a certain someone in their life that has veneers that are just too big.
If you have been considering cosmetic dentistry, or would like to repair an unfortunate dental restoration or enhancement, call or click and schedule a no obligation mouth reconstruction appointment with Dr. Ringer. You really can change your smile and your life.
