Is Cosmetic Dentistry Worth the Investment?


Visiting a cosmetic dentist means more than just spending money for a beautiful smile. Paying to restore and beautify your smile is an investment in your long-lasting physical appearance, your chewing and talking capabilities, and your self-confidence. Social and career possibilities can even expand when you have a confident smile that helps you express yourself.

Cosmetic dental procedures vary in cost depending on the length, type, and extent of the treatments. A variety of cosmetic dental procedures are available to enhance your smile. Dental implants are known as one of the most effective tooth replacement options because they replace both the tooth root and the tooth. Dental crowns can cap a dental implant or cover a broken tooth with a natural-looking restoration.

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of tooth-like material that are bonded to the front of your original teeth to straighten, whiten, or cover up damaged teeth. A variety of tooth whitening options are available to give your teeth that extra sparkle. Your cosmetic dentist can help you know which cosmetic dental treatment would best shape your smile into the smile of your dreams.

If you find that your cosmetic dentist charges slightly more than your general dentist, keep in mind that cosmetic dentistry requires extra training and expertise. You generally get the quality of smile that you pay for. However, most cosmetic dentists work hard to keep costs low enough that they are manageable and affordable. Financing options are almost always available.
