How to a Choose Cosmetic Dentist

Erie, Harborcreek and Millcreek, PA

For any service, you want to find the right professional to do the job. This is especially true when choosing someone to provide cosmetic dental services. Cosmetic dentistry is different from general dentistry. It is a specialization of dental science that focuses on improving the appearance of teeth.

Here are some factors we recommend evaluating in your search for a cosmetic dentist.


Any cosmetic dentist at the forefront of the field needs to pursue post-graduate education. Here, our dental professionals learn tools, techniques, and procedures that go well beyond what is taught in dental school. A well-qualified cosmetic dentist also will undergo supplemental training at times, to stay up to date on the most current technologies and methods.

At Laser Dentistry of Erie, LLC, Drs. Albert and Allen Starr continue to pursue additional training in all facets of dental science—including cosmetic services—so that they can provide the highest level of care to every patient that steps through our office doors.


A high-level cosmetic dentist uses the best tools, technology, and materials at his or her disposal. By doing so, a cosmetic dentist can deliver the best, most aesthetically pleasing results possible, while also maximizing comfort and convenience for the patient.

Laser dentistry is a key part of our practice. Using our precise dental laser technology, we can perform many procedures in less time with less discomfort both during and after. Digital X-ray technology, in combination with our digital imaging system and intraoral camera, allow us to gather more information than ever in the diagnostic phase of any procedure. Also, our E4D system allows us to fabricate restorations such as crowns, veneers, and fillings right in our office to complete many procedures in a single day that used to require multiple office appointments, and the use of a dental laboratory.
