Design-a-Smile: Cosmetic dentistry—Sydney’s answer to perfect teeth
All the teeth brushing and flossing in the world won’t give you the ‘toothpaste commercial worthy’ smile you dream of. Cosmetic dentistry could be the answer you’re looking for if you want perfectly straight teeth. Not all dentists in Sydney are trained equally, so before you commit to spending money on a confidence-boosting smile, you need to do your research.
What to look for when choosing a dentist in Sydney
There are several factors to consider when choosing the best dentist for cosmetic work.
- Reputation and reviews
- Payment plans
Before you decide on the best dentist to take care of your new winning smile, you need to factor in the services they provide. Not all dentists are Keen on doing cosmetics and may only offer standard services. Choose a clinic who can provide the full spectrum of dental procedures so you’re not needing to visit a separate dental practitioner, one Sydney clinic which specialises in all aspects of dentistry is A Better Smile Dental Centre. They cover absolutely everything you could possibly need to be done to your teeth including dental veneers and Lumineers, implants, crowns and bridges, and even Invisalign clear aligners for teens and adults. In fact, they provide all the dental services, A-list Hollywood celebs typically undergo for their cosmetically designed smiles.
A good dentist will take the time to sit down with you for a thorough consultation, walking you through the available cosmetic procedures to design a smile that enhances your face and complexion. Unless your dentist takes the necessary time to explain what each of the procedures entails, analyses your bite and understands your oral problems, you could end up with lengthier and more costly treatments.
Dr Joel Kligman prides himself on offering a full smile consultation so you get the whole picture from your first appointment. He won’t carry out any dental work unless it’s necessary and give you the available techniques to achieve the look you want, and cost incurred. There’s no pressure, the ultimate decision comes down to what you want and what you can afford. You can also expect the same treatment from any of his dental associates at A Better Smile.
In-house dental laboratory
A stand-out feature to look for is a clinic with an in-house dental laboratory. This truly cuts the wait time for customised crowns, bridges, dentures and veneers. In the case of an emergency, repairs to broken dental appliances (dentures, retainers, braces and bridges) can be undertaken literally straight there’s no need to outsource the work to a lab—less waiting time and no extra charges to absorb urgent courier fees for off-site repairs.
Every dentist has to start somewhere when they first graduate, but when you’re paying for a smile design, you need the peace of mind that your teeth are in the hands of a proven professional. The number of years in practice doesn’t always mean a dentist is up-to-date with the latest dental technology and techniques. Dr Joel Kligman is a perfect example of what to look for—where experience and state-of-the-art expertise meet. As the founder of A Better Smile Dental, he is committed to providing the best cosmetic dentistry in Sydney. He constantly upskills in cutting edge technology to provide the very latest techniques in crown and bridgework, orthodontics and complex dental rehabilitation.
Reviews about Sydney dentists
Reviews can provide invaluable insight into choosing a dental practice. Under section 133(1) of the National Law, dental practitioners are not allowed to use testimonials to advertise, but you’ll often find patients will place reviews based on their experiences on third party websites such as Google Reviews, True Local and on social media. This can be helpful to alleviate any concerns you may have, particularly if you are a nervous patient.
Payment plans for cosmetic dentistry
Cosmetic dental procedures can be expensive, but the price of a beautiful smile which makes you feel confident is invaluable. Some dental centres will customise a treatment plan so your appointments can be scheduled to suit your budget. Others, such as A Better Smile offer convenient payment plans so you don’t have to delay your dentistry work. In addition to being a provider for all major health funds, you may be eligible for flexible payments—you choose up to 36 months interest-free* monthly repayments to fit your lifestyle. Simply pay 20% of the total cost up front and choose from eDebit or DentiCare payment solutions.
