How To Get That Million Dollar Smile For Less
How To Get That Million Dollar Smile For Less
Do you envy the bright white, uniform looking smiles that celebrities have? Don’t we all? A full set of porcelain veneers or a smile makeover can cost up to thousands of dollars. This just isn’t ideal for the average Joe. So, you may feel like you’re left with just the fantasy of having that show-stopping grin.
Luckily getting a more appealing look for your smile doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg! Various cosmetic options (including payment plans) are available to make your smile makeover a reality.
Cost Effective Cosmetic Dentistry Options
There are certain affordable options that can take years off your smile’s appearance and give you the confidence that you’ve always wanted. The following procedures work well when they are done alone, and even better when combined with each other services.
If you have jagged or uneven teeth, then an enamel plasty may make a big difference in your smile. This quick and simple procedure costs pennies compared to porcelain veneers. The treatment takes minutes to complete and since it’s painless, the process doesn’t even require any type of anesthetic.
During an enamel plasty, our dentist will contour the enamel (outermost surface) of your teeth to give them a more uniform and balanced appearance. This procedure can improve the look of chipped teeth, uneven edges, and it can shorten long, pointy teeth, which some people tend to have. The results that you get from this type of treatment are permanent.
Enamel plasty is meant to only be performed in cases that require a minimal amount of contouring. Too much can cause your teeth to become sensitive.
Bleaching your teeth can give you a much brighter smile. There are several different options available for whitening. If you only have minimal discoloration, a bleaching kit found over-the-counter that may brighten your teeth by a couple of shades. Whitening toothpastes can help new stains from building up between dental visits.
If you prefer a prescription-strength formula or need more dramatic results, our dental team can help you decide which is best for you. We offer an at-home system which will whiten your teeth over a series of several days. For faster results, you may want to take advantage of our in-office whitening treatment. This procedure takes about an hour and a half to complete and give you instant results and several shades of improvement.
While teeth whitening works well, the results are temporary. Depending on your habits, you may have to touch up your results twice a year or so. Also, people that have very sensitive teeth may want to consider another option because bleaching can sometimes cause irritation.
Dental bonding offers a semi-permanent solution for chipped teeth. During this procedure, we bond a tooth-colored composite material over the misshaped or chipped surface of your teeth. This allows us to choose an appealing shade and gives us the freedom to shape the teeth and make them look more uniform.
To ensure that you get the most out of your dental bonding, you’ll need to take really good care of your smile. The material can stain over time and it can also chip if you tend to clench and grind. Smoking, drinking dark drinks, and biting into hard things are not recommended when your teeth are bonded.
Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment that you can undergo without interrupting your life. Rather than metal wires and brackets, this system uses a series of rigid aligners (plastic trays) that gently glide your teeth into place.
The aligners are clear, so no one will even know you’re going through the process. The trays are also removable, making it easy to clean your teeth, and generally, easier to live with as opposed to traditional braces.
Invisalign is capable of correcting bite imperfections, straightening crooked teeth, and closing in spaces.
Imagine the results you would get by combining Invisalign with dental teeth whitening!
