Cosmetic dentistry can give you a stunning smile that you’ll be proud to show off. You don’t have to be rich or a celebrity to revamp your pearly whites. Cosmetic dentistry is affordable for people from all walks of life. You have more options than ever before to invest in the smile of your dreams without spending your life’s savings.

Benefits of an Attractive Smile

You can’t put a price on the benefits of having an attractive smile. Researchers have found that pleasing teeth are attributed to youth, success, confidence, and intelligence. Not only will you look and feel your best, but you’ll appear more approachable and enhance your professional image. You could enjoy new career opportunities, a better social life, and much more. 

Popular Cosmetic Procedures

Every mouth and situation are unique, but there’s an elective service to meet your needs and preferences. After examining your mouth and learning more about your goals, your dentist will determine which treatments are right for you, like:

  • Porcelain Veneers: A veneer is a thin restoration that covers the front side of your tooth. Bonding them to the teeth visible when smiling can correct many imperfections at once, like stains, chips, and cracks using a minimally invasive procedure. 
  • Dental Bonding: A composite resin can provide a quick fix for minor issues, like decay, cracks, or exposed tooth roots. It’s shaded to match the color of your enamel to blend in with your tooth. 
  • At-Home Teeth Whitening: You can reverse the appearance of age-related and surface stains with an at-home whitening kit. Your teeth can get up to 8 shades whiter after using the whitening system for about 2 weeks.
  • Invisalign: Clear aligners are worn over your teeth to fix bite and alignment problems. You’ll have a straight, healthy smile in about 12 months.

Your dentist will help you make the best investment for your situation. They’ll explain exactly what you can expect on the road ahead.

Options to Keep Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Besides traditional payment methods, you have many options to keep cosmetic dentistry affordable, like:

  • Dental Insurance: It’s not common for dental insurance to cover cosmetic dentistry unless treatment is medically necessary. Your dental benefits may cover your consultation, diagnostic services, or any prep work. 
  • Financing: You can pay any out-of-pocket expenses using a monthly payment plan through a third-party financing company, like CareCredit.

It’s never too late to achieve a picture-perfect smile. You’ll enjoy long-lasting results that look natural.
