What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?
Technically, there is no such thing as a cosmetic dentist, not legally, anyway. A cosmetic dentist is not a recognized specialist by any board of dentistry. A cosmetic dentist doesn’t have a certificate the way a pediatric dentist or a periodontist does. Instead, the differentiation of a cosmetic dentist is less formal, and can change from person to person.
So what do we mean when we say “cosmetic dentist”? A cosmetic dentist has a philosophical distinction. A cosmetic dentist begins with the belief that looking good is an essential function of your smile. This means that no dental procedure is really done properly unless it takes into account not just the health and functionality of results, but also the appearance.
A cosmetic dentist might also offer procedures specifically designed to improve the appearance of the smile, but it’s the attitude toward even the most common general dentistry procedures that really distinguishes a cosmetic dentist. For a cosmetic dentist, none of these procedures are routine: they all have to stand up to the same scrutiny and standards that might be directed at a smile makeover.
