You've finally scheduled that appointment with the cosmetic dentist you've been wanting to see.


But now what?

How do you prepare for a cosmetic dentist appointment?

Do you need to do anything differently than you would for a regular dentist appointment?

The answer is yes and no.

You want to be as prepared as possible so that your consultation goes smoothly, but there are only a few key things to keep in mind.

Here are some tips on how to prepare for your upcoming appointment.

1)) Know What You Want

It's helpful if you go into your consultation with at least a slight idea of the treatments or procedures you're interested in.

That way, the dentist will be able to better understand what you're looking for and give you more specific information.

Of course, if you have no idea where to even start, don't worry!

The dentist will be more than happy to help guide you in the right direction based on your smile goals.

2)) Bring Pictures

This is probably the most important tip on this list.

Want to make sure your cosmetic dentist knows exactly what you're picturing for your new smile?

Bring picture examples.

Not only will this help the dentist understand exactly what treatments/procedures will be necessary to give you your desired look, but it'll also help save time during your consultation.

3)) Bring A List of Questions

Just like with any other doctor's appointment, it's always helpful to come prepared with a list of questions (and don't forget to write down the answers).

That way, you won't forget anything important that you wanted to ask and can fully understand everything the dentist tells you about your treatment plan options.

4)) Be Honest About Your Concerns and Fears

One of the biggest reasons why people put off going to a cosmetic dentist is because they're afraid of being judged or made fun of.

We can assure you that cosmetic dentists have heard it all before and they are not here to judge you.

They're here to help ease any concerns or fears that you may have so that you can feel confident and comfortable about finally getting the smile of your dreams.

5)) Arrive on Time

Just like any other doctor's appointment, it's important to arrive on time (or even better - early) so that you don't have to rush through everything and end up feeling frazzled by the end of it all.

Plus, arriving early gives you a few extra minutes to fill out any necessary paperwork before your consultation begins.


Following these simple tips should help make sure that your upcoming cosmetic dentist consultation goes as smoothly as possible!

The most important thing is just showing up prepared and ready to learn more about how you can get the smile of your dreams.
