How to Keep Costs Down While Keeping Your Smile Up

You once loved the look of your smile but over the years there have been a few mishaps and you are now left with some unwanted cracks and stains on your teeth. Having your teeth pulled and replaced with implants is not an economical option for you. What types of things can your dentist do to improve the look of your oral cavity without exceeding your budget? There are several options to correct the aesthetics of your smile from whitening to veneers.

Professional Whitening

Teeth whitening processes are the best way to get your teeth looking white again. With a short visit to your dentist, you can leave with a Hollywood movie star grin. New technology in teeth whitening allows your dentist to perform this type of treatment in about one hour. The painless procedure requires you to first have good dental health before administering the whitening product to your teeth. A special solution is applied and with the help of Zoom technology, your teeth will stay white for several months to come. Teeth whitening is an inexpensive option for a beautiful smile.

Veneers

When your teeth are chipped or cracked you may be a good candidate for dental veneers. Your dentist will examine the condition of your damaged teeth to determine if they are strong enough for the process. Once you get the all-clear for a dental veneer, your mouth will take on a whole new look. Dental veneers are placed over your existing teeth to cover up any small imperfections or chips. The veneer will help protect your teeth from further damage and is less costly than having a dental implant.

Bonding

Perhaps you want your damaged teeth to be repaired with dental bonding. The material used in dental bonding is not as strong as the material used for fillings and veneers, but it is a good option if you are seeking a treatment to cover up the minor damage to your teeth. Bonding doesn’t require as much preparation as a dental veneer and less of the natural tooth is lost during the process. Ask your dentist if dental bonding is something that will work for you.

Bridges

When you have lost a few teeth in a row you may be a candidate for implants but if you are concerned about your budget why not consider a bridge? A dental bridge can fill in the gap where your teeth once were, providing your mouth with full support, functionality, and an aesthetically pleasing look. Bridges require similar care as your natural teeth so be sure to keep them looking and working great with regular brushing and cleaning routines.

Having a great-looking smile is more than visiting your dentist a couple of times per year. There are times when you may need additional treatments to keep those pearly whites at their best.
