Hendersonville patients ask what to look for when choosing a cosmetic dentist

Choosing a cosmetic dentist may seem like a daunting task. While some patients go by word of mouth, others open the phone book and choose a dental team at random. This is not the smartest way of going about selecting a dentist for the family. Instead, patients should make sure they do their research to find some of the best cosmetic dentists in and around the Hendersonville area.

First, patients should look for a cosmetic dentist who is conveniently located. This can be a location near work or home, or somewhere accessible in-between the two. It should be easy for patients to make their appointments without going too far out of their way. This encourages regular visits when dentists are located nearby.

Second, patients should consider a dentist with extensive cosmetic service experience. There is no specialized degree for cosmetic dentistry, so it is important that families seek a dentist who has received special training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center received additional training and hands-on experience at the prestigious Nash Institute in North Carolina, working alongside the founder for an entire year before starting his own practice in the area.

Third, patients should be able to see examples of a cosmetic dentist's past work. This gives patients an idea as to what to expect from their cosmetic services and to see what their dentist is capable of achieving. Some patients may need to address minor imperfections within their smile while others are seeking long-term smile makeovers with drastic changes. During an initial consultation appointment, patients are urged to ask questions of their cosmetic dentist and ask to see examples of their work.

Patients in and around the Henderson community who are interested in choosing an experienced, quality cosmetic dentist for the entire family should look no further than Dr. Christopher Port. At the Asheville Smile Center, we are constantly welcoming new patients and families to our practice and work hard to help everyone in achieving good oral health and beautiful smiles!

5 Dentist Asheville - 5 Star Review
Ashley Hanes
As someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a LONG time, I must say, everyone there makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in the door until you leave. I'm so glad my friend recommended Asheville Smile Center to me, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a dentist or a new dentist. This place is full of wonderful people, it is extremely clean and very comfortable (massage chairs). Plus there are cookies!
