Finding the Right Cosmetic Dentist in Auckland

Having healthy teeth and gums is an important factor in maintaining good overall health. Regular visits to the dentist help to support your good dental hygiene habits and also helps to reduce any fears or anxiety of visiting the dentist. Regular dental visits support good dental hygiene habits and help to alleviate any fears or apprehensions about going to the dentist. How do you find a good cosmetic dentist if you’re new to the Auckland North Shore area or haven’t seen one in a while?

Our patients give us a lot of feedback and have many reasons for choosing Northmed Dental as their cosmetic dental provider.

Referrals from Friends, Family and Coworkers

If you have any recommendations, ask your local friends, family, and coworkers. There’s a good chance they’ve had a cosmetic dental procedure like teeth whitening, dental implants, Invisalign, or veneers in the past. Even if your needs aren’t the same as your friends’, they may be able to provide information about the doctor, staff, or technology.
They can also tell you what to expect and how they were treated at their dentist. Going in with no information is always preferable to going in with a recommendation from a reliable source.

Research the Dental Clinic

Every well run business has a website, and it contains a lot of information to represent their practice. After taking a good look through their site, you’ll get an impression.

  • What are their areas of focus?
  • Do the images on the website give you a good impression?
  • How many years have they been in business?
  • Look at before and after photos of patients. What does their work  look like?
  • Check out the reviews. A great cosmetic dentist will regularly receive 5 star reviews from happy patients. Reviews and ratings can be looked at as votes of confidence for a dentist when positive. They can also be red flags for a practice when negative.
  • Look at the images of the dental practice – does it look clean and professional?
  • What degrees do they hold?


In order to receive certain treatments, many patients require specialised technology. Dental technology evolves over time, and the best dentists will always use the most up-to-date technology to give their patients the best possible results. Laser dentistry and 3D x-rays, for example, can help reduce both the invasiveness of a procedure and the time it takes to heal.
