If you’re looking for a smile makeover, there’s a few things you can do to help you in your research in finding the right person to actually fix your smile. Now, one of the ways to do it is to actually just jump online and search cosmetic dentist or someone who has a special interest in making a smile beautiful. The reason is because when you find a person or a few people, look at their websites, look at their before and after, jump on their Facebook or Instagram because that way, you can actually tell someone’s before and afters that they do.

Every practitioner has got their own style of teeth. Now, some style might look more natural, some less natural, some more Hollywood. It really depends on what you’re looking for and find the right fit for you. If you feel the good vibe in terms of what their style looks and you’re happy with it, you might want to give the person a call.


The other thing is also, when you search the websites on Instagram or any of the social media platforms, when you look at a before and after, find a place where there’s got a lot of before and afters because what it means is that the person might have a lot of happy clients because if the clients are not generally happy, you’re not going to get too many before and afters from them. One of the ways is to search out for that because it will give you some social proof that a person’s doing right thing and doing it well and has been doing a lot. You want someone who’s got experience in this area.

Now, number two, what you can do is have a chat with your friends. I’m certain that with cosmetic dentistry these days, it’s quite well-known that people get veneers or orthodontics done, so have a chat with your friends and see who they’ve been to and whether they’ve got a good experience with them. Because 9 out of 10, if your friends have got a good experience with someone, they will tell you because they would want their friends to benefit from the same service. Have a chat with them and see who comes up and do your research again, back to point number one, where you want to see the before and after, get some social proof and move forward from there.

Finally, when you see the place that you may like or a few places, gives the practices a call because when you call the practice, it allows you to get a relationship started up with a practice. You get to hear the doctor’s voice or the receptionist’s voice and get a feel of who the practice is and whether the practice is right for you because you just don’t want to be a number that comes in. You want to actually establish a relationship with a practice even before you come in.

Three things. Number one, search on Google or Facebook, Instagram and get some social proof. Number two, speak to some of your friends who’ve got good experiences or bad experiences and number three, pick the phone up and give the practices a call, so that you get to know the feel of the culture of the practice because it’s very important. When the culture’s great in a practice, you get good service and when you’ve got happy staff, you’ve got happy clients as well
