Your smile is incredibly important in how you greet the world, and you want to make your first impression a good one. Nothing beats a mouth full of straight, white teeth in creating that great first impression. If Mother Nature didn’t see fit to give you the vibrant smile you want, there’s much that cosmetic dentistry can do to make up for that oversight -- and choosing the right cosmetic dentist can make all the difference.

Here at Lifetime Dental Care, under the experienced guidance of Dr. W. Garry Waldrop, we believe in our name and provide care that’s designed to last a lifetime. If you want a smile for the ages, read on to explore some great tips for choosing the right dentist for your cosmetic needs.

1. A variety of treatment options

The world of cosmetic dentistry has come a long way since the wood-and-bone days of old. Whether your teeth are dulled with age, missing entirely, or crooked, there’s much that modern dentistry can accomplish in restoring and improving your great smile.

So it’s important that you seek a cosmetic dentist who offers a wide array of options to suit every need and every budget. For example, if you want whiter teeth, you have options that include everything from professional whitening to veneers and bonding.

If you need replacement teeth, you can go with partial dentures or dental implants, giving you a choice in how you restore your line of teeth.

At Lifetime Dental Care, we provide all of these services in a state-of-the-art office using the latest techniques and equipment.

2. Experience is important

Experience matters when it comes to creating the smile of your dreams. When you choose a cosmetic dentist, make sure that the dentist has plenty of experience under their belt, as well as great examples of work they’ve done.

With more than 40 years of practicing general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Waldrop has both the experience and history of successful results you want in a cosmetic dentist.

3. Chairside manner

Our team prides itself on providing friendly care that caters to the individual needs of each of our patients. Whether you’re anxious about visiting the dentist, or you just want to ensure that you’re not simply a number, we take the time to sit down with you and listen to your goals and concerns.

We never rush you, as we want to make sure that you’re comfortable at all times with both the recommendations and the budget.

4. Covering your dental bases

When you want to transform your smile, it’s helpful to go with a dentist that provides general dentistry alongside cosmetic dentistry. As a family dentist, Dr. Waldrop understands dental health and addresses any issues that crop up during your care. In other words, we’re not only specialists in form, but in function, too.

5. Invested in your future

When you choose a cosmetic dentist, you want to make sure they’re invested in your results. Our team is community-minded, and everyone who walks through our doors is part of that community. We’re invested in your happiness and success, and since we’ll be seeing you around town showing off your new teeth, we make every effort to make them the best they can be.
