Personalized Cosmetic Dental Care
It is hard to find a dentist adequately trained to give the highest level of cosmetic dentistry. It takes proper training, adquate experience, and top level labwork.
Seattle cosmetic dentist Lance Timmerman DMD in Tukwila is known worldwide for his cosmetic dentistry and is sought by not only patients seeking care, but lab technicians desiring to work with him.
Cosmetic Dental Training
Dental school teaches adequate dental skills. Upon graduation, the school makes it clear that it is important for the new graduate to continue their education. While many continue, it is up to each dentist to decide what to learn and what to implement in their practice. There is NOT a set curriculum that each dentist must take. While that is liberating for the dentist to choose based on their interests or desires, it makes it difficult for patients to know if their chosen dentist is capable and trained to treat them.
There are many institutes with many subjects of emphasis. Dr Timmerman has learned from the best, including the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, the New York University Aesthetic Advantage, and the Center for Dental Excellence with Dr John Kois. His fellowships in the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Congress for Oral Implantologists demonstrate his passion for staying at the top level of dental care.
Cosmetic Dental Experience
There truly is no substitute for “The School of Hard Knocks.” Experience finishes off the training learned in an academic setting, and dentists that have taken courses but never applied the knowledge may not be the best choice when it comes to investing in yourself. The “been there, done that” knowledge from actually treating cases ensures the best possible outcome to your case. When researching who to treat you, be sure to ask for before and after photographs and videos. THEN, be sure to ask if they are examples of your doctor’s work, as many dentists will purchase books and materials that are NOT their own. Buyer beware.
Cosmetic Dental Labwork
Beyond Dr Timmerman’s gifts to design and prepare teeth for new smiles or dental implants, the artistry of the ceramic labwork will make or break each case. Each technician has a talent or strength, and it is from the hand crafted artistry that makes a smile SHINE.
