Almost Anyone Can Afford Cosmetic Dental Care

Having a beautiful smile doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Cosmetic dentistry can deliver the treatments you need, in a way that improves the way your smile looks. From whitening to tooth colored fillings, most of these treatments don’t cost much more than the traditional dental care that you’ve already been getting.

Replacing old, worn silver fillings with beautiful composite restorations can transform your smile. Each tooth colored filling is carefully matched to the shade of your natural tooth enamel. The end result looks as if your tooth never had a filling to begin with. Similar to fillings are composite bondings. Bonding is typically used on the front teeth to correct minor discrepancies like gaps, chipped or broken teeth, and discolorations. They are very simple to apply and can be done in just one visit. Selecting bonding to correct the appearance of one or two teeth can be an economical option over more dramatic treatments like porcelain veneers.

Whitening your teeth can make them look years younger. Over time, the pores in our tooth enamel will collect stains and discoloration from food and drinks we consume each day. Tobacco users have an even deeper set stain, which can add years to their smile. Professional teeth whitening at your dentist’s office or professional whitening kits dispensed by your dentist are the most effective ways to remove deep set stain from your teeth, causing them to look years younger. While a professional kit is a slightly larger investment than a store-bought teeth whitening kit, you will see much better, more even results with a teeth whitening kit from your dentist.
