Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist
SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
Although cosmetic dentists utilize the same underlying dental knowledge and skills that a general dentist uses, there are numerous differences between the two. Cosmetic dentistry is truly a combination of technical skill and artistic ability – and the success of each cosmetic procedure (and the beauty of your smile) is in the hands of the dentist you choose. That is why it is so important to know how to find the best cosmetic dentist to meet your needs.
Licensed cosmetic dentists need more than just a medical degree in dentistry – they must complete advance training at accredited dental institutes for every area of cosmetic dentistry they practice. You want to find a cosmetic dentist who has attended the best schools in the country. The most famous and prestigious of these educational institutes is the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), where Dr. Holley trained to become an LVI dentist and continues to attend advanced courses.
In addition to an excellent educational resume, the cosmetic dentist you select should also be an active member of the dental community. This attribute is important because it demonstrates his or her commitment and passion for the profession. Dr. Holley is currently a member of The American Dental Association, The Texas Dental Association, The Capital Area Dental Society, and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentist.
Once you have found a few qualified cosmetic dentists in your area, it is always a good idea to validate each person’s credentials and make sure there are no pending malpractice suits against him or her. You can do both by contacting the County Clerk’s office associated with each dentist’s office location.
Lastly, you should obtain before and after photos for the procedures you would like to undergo. In doing this, you can see for yourself the kind of quality to expect. To learn more about how we can transform your teeth into your new smile, download our FREE e-book here.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
