Your smile is something you have had your entire life. You are intrinsically tied to the appearance of your teeth; you take them everywhere you go! This can be a good thing, or it can be not so good. If you aren’t happy with an aspect of your smile, your confidence and even your behaviors may diminish. You know that cosmetic dentistry treatments can help you feel better about your smile, but you may not fully understand how or where to start. And so, you live day to day with this idea of a better smile marinating in your mind.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Cosmetic dentistry can seem complicated, and there may be a perception that it is also expensive. Finally, it may be difficult to determine where to go and whom to trust with your smile. After all, like we said, you take it everywhere you go. You may not be aware of this, but, there is no dental licensing for cosmetic dentistry. A dentist goes to dental school and obtains a degree to practice, and the basic licensure around that. Beyond that, whatever services are offered are up to the individual professional.
This is important because what it means is that a dentist is a dentist – at least as far as licensing goes. Also, a dentist who performs cosmetic treatments can advertise as a “cosmetic dentist.” You will see on our website that we do refer to Dr. Barney as a cosmetic dentist. We have good reason to do this with full confidence, knowing that patients will receive the care they deserve. Dr. Barney is one of a few hundred dentists in the country who has completed the full training program at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. A large portion of this program, which culminated in Fellowship status in 2008, is dental aesthetics.
Ultimately, you want your smile to look like yours. You want it to reflect how you feel and who you are regarding your personality. A smile is a very personal aspect of your personal image; we understand this. More so, Dr. Ken Barney has the extensive post-graduate training to bring out your true essence in your smile.
