Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry

If you think cosmetic dentistry is only for Hollywood stars or the rich and famous, you will be happy to know that there is a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you get that glamorous smile you always wanted without breaking the bank.  Millions of Americans are flocking to their cosmetic dentist to take advantage of the  many affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures that can produce dramatic results.

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures and for good reason – it works wonders, its inexpensive, and there are few side effects.  Many people use over the counter teeth whitening products, but for the best results a professional in-office teeth whitening is hard to beat.  You will notice the difference in a single treatment and by having the teeth whitening done in you dentists office, you will avoid some of the sore lips and gums common with over the counter teeth whitening products.  In addition, your dentist will coordinate the teeth whitening treatment with other cosmetic procedures for a great overall effect.

If you have unsightly silver amalgam fillings, talk to your cosmetic dentist about replacing them with attractive tooth colored composite fillings.  Composite fillings look just like your natural teeth and since they are bonded in place, they add strength to the tooth.  You should complete your teeth whitening first, then replace your amalgam fillings so your dentist can match the color of your smile.

Adults with misaligned teeth no longer have to suffer years of “metal mouth” to get an attractive, straight smile.  Invisible aligners are the modern way to straighten misaligned teeth without having to endure a mouth full of metal wires and bands.  They work for most moderate alignment issues and no one will be able to tell that you have them.  For faster results, six-month braces focus on aligning just the front teeth and use tooth colored bands and wires to make them much less noticeable.

Talk to your cosmetic dentist about creating an affordable treatment plan to help you achieve the smile you always wanted!
