Articles Selecting the Best Cosmetic Dentist for Patients from London

How can we help?

Tomorrow, the 21st of February, is Shrove or Pancake Tuesday, which is the last day before Lent, when many people give up sweets, chocolates or crisps. This is very good for your teeth, as sweets, chocolate and crisps often give you cavities and dental decay. However, if you have unfortunately suffered from the effects of too much sugar and need cosmetic treatment to reinvigorate your smile you can find a cosmetic dentist serving patients from London to help you restore your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry has become incredibly popular in the last few years and the number of dental practices offering cosmetic services and procedures has increased enormously. This is beneficial for clients, as there is a greater choice and you can access services on your doorstep, but it can also be problematic trying to choose the best cosmetic dentist for you.

If you type the word cosmetic dentist into an Internet search engine, it is likely that hundreds of results will come back and you will be faced with the dilemma of trying to choose which one is best for you. When looking for a dentist, there are some key things to look out for:

Treatment list

Some dental practices in London offer more treatments than others, so if you want a specific treatment, ensure that the dentist you are considering offers that service. You can find out this information by visiting the practice website or giving them a call.


Many dental practices offer free consultations, which enables you to talk to a dentist about the treatments on offer, what the procedures involve and what kind of results you can expect once treatment is complete. Your dentist will examine your mouth and they may also take photographs and create impressions of your teeth to check that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.


With so much choice around, it can be difficult to select a dentist, so look for patient reviews, positive feedback and awards and take a look at the dentists’ website to see what kind of experience and expertise they have. Dental treatment can be daunting for some and if you suffer from dental anxiety the prospect of a session in the dental chair may be particularly worrying, so look out for a dentist with experience in treating patients with dental phobia, as they will help to make you feel at ease.

Payment options

If you are desperate for treatment but you don’t have a large amount of cash up front, many practices allow you to pay for your treatment in instalments, so you can spread the cost. You will need to investigate the payment plans offered by the practice before you agree to have the treatment to make sure that the terms suit you.
