If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, and you’re trying to find the best cosmetic dentist for you, you might have difficulty trying to decide whether you should work with a local dentist or travel to work with an out-of-town dentist. You think the local dentist is good, but you think the other dentist is better. You just can’t decide whether it’s worth it to invest in traveling just for the privilege of working with the better dentist.
If you really are convinced the out-of-town dentist is the best, then it really is worth it to travel. Here’s why.
You Want to Get the Best
If you are going to invest in cosmetic dentistry, you deserve to work with the best dentist in your opinion. Your dentist is going to influence every aspect of your procedure, including how attractive your results are, how long your results last, and how comfortable your restorations feel.
When you consider that you’re making a permanent alteration to your smile that could affect your health, and, at any rate, could be expected to last 20 years, 30 years, or more, it’s really important to get it right. And that means you should only work with a dentist who gives you full confidence, one that you’ll never be able to regret choosing.
Travel Is Relatively Inexpensive
Really, when you consider the comparative cost of the travel and the procedure itself, the travel is often quite inexpensive, especially if you’re getting a complete smile makeover of one type or another. Because it’s so easy and inexpensive to travel around the country, the premium for traveling to work with the best is very small. Especially if you divide it over all the time you expect to be enjoying your beautiful smile.
You Can Still Enjoy Your Vacation
People regularly fly around the country for cosmetic surgery, but all they really get is the procedure. With cosmetic surgery, you can’t spend much time enjoying your vacation–most of it you’ll spend propped up on a bed in your hotel room or care facility.
But with most dental procedures, your activity won’t be restricted at all. You can get out and enjoy many vacation activities with no restrictions whatsoever. Sure, your teeth might be a little too sensitive to enjoy a mint julep (and, depending on the details of your procedure, you might be asked not to drink), but you can still get around to see the town and enjoy most aspects of our famed hospitality.
Make It a Real Occasion
You’ve probably been looking forward to this smile makeover for years, if not decades. Living with an unattractive smile can just wear you down, day after day, year after year. The day when you finally get rid of that old smile and get a new one that you can feel happy to share should be special.
And what better way to make it special than to make it into a vacation? You will remember these days forever, so it’s important to make them into days you really want to think back on, days filled with amazing stories, not just the one about your dentist.
If you are concerned that other people will figure out that you’ve had a smile makeover, travel gives you a great way to escape. This can be especially important if you’re from a small town where everyone sees everyone else every day. Getting out of town might be literally the only way to conceal what you’re doing.
And it even comes with a ready-made excuse if anyone comments on your smile when you get home–just say you got some sun.
