I’m very excited for you. It is wonderful watching patient’s reactions to their gorgeous new smile. Many of them cry they’re so thrilled. It’s good that you are willing to do research. It shows that it means a lot to you. While doing research is good, you’ll need to switch your question in order to get the best smile. It isn’t about finding the right brand of porcelain veneers. It’s about finding the right dentist to place them.
For instance, two dentists can use the exact same brand to make the same type of smile and they’ll end up looking completely different. It all has to do with the skill and artistic eye of the dentist. Some people spend a fortune on a new smile only to come home with empty pockets and a disappointing smile.
So, how is a patient to find the best dentist to do their smile makeover? Fortunately, there is an organization that helps you. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). They have an accreditation program, which has extremely high standards. IF you find an AACD accredited dentist, you’ll be in good hands. Even better is an accredited fellow. But, either one will give you a gorgeous smile. They’re among the top 1-3% of cosmetic dentists in the country in the world.
Good Luck and we can’t wait to see a picture of your gorgeous new smile.
