Affordable Smile Makeover Options
Affordable Smile Makeover Options
Is it possible to plan a smile makeover on a budget? Absolutely. At The Center For Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry, affordable aesthetic treatments are something we offer on a daily basis. It all boils down to what you want to achieve for your smile, the budget you plan to work from, the overall time frame you want to work with, and the types of options that are appropriate for your teeth.
Have a Budget in Mind
The overall budget for a smile makeover can range anywhere from $200 to over $10,000. If your stimulus check is burning a hole in your pocket and you want to put it towards your smile makeover, you have plenty of different options to choose from and even leave money leftover (depending on what it is that you want.) Sharing your ideal budget/price range will help our Newport Beach cosmetic dentistry team to formulate a care plan that stays in budget so that you’re not caught off guard by the price of the process. There is truly something for everyone!
Know Your Options
You’ve seen the gorgeous dental makeovers sported online, on the front cover of magazines, and the celebrity news stories. But not every smile makeover is created equal. You don’t necessarily need to get porcelain dental veneers on every tooth that shows in order for your teeth to look beautiful.
Some of the other cosmetic options that are worth considering also include:
- Enamel recontouring
- Dental bonding
- Gum recontouring
- Take-home teeth whitening trays
- Chairside veneers
- White fillings
- Gum bleaching
- Accelerated orthodontics (short-term braces)
- Injectables such as Botox
Combine, Combine, Combine
Using a tooth-by-tooth approach, our Newport Beach cosmetic dentist will help you formulate a plan that uses appropriate treatment options and combines them into an overall big picture. We call this process a “treatment plan” or “case plan” and it outlines which treatments will be performed on which teeth and in what order. Dr. Yazdan can also create a few different treatment plans, so that you can review the various scenarios available.
For example, one of the plans could be whitening with Invisalign and then a couple of areas of bonding. Another could be getting 6 veneers and then some gum recontouring. Bottom line, these different combinations and plan options give you the data you need to think over the best steps for your individual situation. No two smile makeovers are alike! Just because one type of treatment was best for a friend doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll need the same process to achieve similar results.
Flexible 0% Financing Options
Let’s say you want to invest a bit more into your smile makeover and plan to look into affordable monthly payment options so that you can get started right away. If that’s the case, you’ll be happy to know that The Center For Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry has partnered with CareCredit to provide low-interest and 0% financing options on all services (including non-cosmetic treatments.)
Here’s how it works: You apply online or at our office and get immediate approval with access to funds. Sort of like a credit card. You can then use your CareCredit account number to pay for all or some of your dental treatments. It can also be combined with any existing insurance coverage, to cover portions that might not be included under your traditional benefits, such as cosmetic dentistry. Depending on the terms of your CareCredit account, most of our patients qualify for 0% interest as long as the balance is paid off in 12-18 months, or at a low interest rate overall. That way you can make low monthly payments that fit your budget without having to put your smile makeover off until a later time.
Start Sooner Rather Than Later
If there’s one thing we know to be true in dentistry, it’s more affordable to treat oral health issues sooner than it is to wait until they evolve into bigger problems. So if you know you need to get a porcelain crown on a tooth but the time passes and the enamel wears down even further, the overall cost of the initial treatment will have to be adjusted. You can save time and money by correcting the problem before it has a chance to get worse.
At The Center For Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide gentle, individualized smile makeover options for people of all walks of life. Whether you’re a new college graduate getting ready to enter the corporate world, a busy parent who runs your own business, or a recent retiree who finally wants the smile of their dreams, we’re here to help. Start by scheduling a no-pressure consultation with Dr. Yazdan to find out what’s possible. Together, we can help you achieve a smile you’ll feel proud to show off!
