Cosmetic Dentistry Options That Won’t Break The Bank

Dr Martin Abelar - August 31, 2023 - 0 comments

It’s pretty safe to say that we all have things about ourselves that we wish we could change. Whether it’s the color of our hair, the condition of our skin, or the condition of our teeth, it’s common to wish we looked a little different.

Unfortunately, while some things aren’t in our control, there are plenty more we can control, our haircare routine (hello, hair dye!), our skincare routine, and yes, even our teeth. But sometimes we simply don’t have the budget to make major changes. Such can be the case with cosmetic dentistry. In fact, when some people think of cosmetic dentistry, they think it’s too costly for their budget, and thus it’s simply out of the question. But it doesn’t have to be.

That’s because not all cosmetic dentistry procedures are bank-breakers. When it comes to improving the look of your smile, there are many less expensive options you may not have considered. These procedures can still get you the look you desire, but without the investment you might expect to pay.

Here are just a few ways you can improve your smile for a little less than you might think!

Teeth Whitening: While you may have had your heart set on veneers, you may not actually need them. Sometimes a professional whitening treatment can get you better results than you expect, and eliminate the need for costlier treatment options. Teeth whitening can be done right here in Dr. Abelar’s office, and can whiten your teeth several shades in about an hour!

Bonding: Dental bonding is a more-affordable way to fix damaged teeth that suffer from chips and cracks. Dental bonding not only protects your teeth from further damage, it also restores their appearance, creating a healthier, more-even appearance.

Tooth Filing: While it’s not recommended for everyone, tooth filing and reshaping is an excellent option for making the teeth look more even and uniform. Tooth shaping removes a fine layer of enamel and sculpts the teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing shape. If you are interested in tooth reshaping, speak to Dr. Abelar to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Orthodontics: Wait, did we just say orthodontics? While orthodontic treatment can certainly get expensive depending on how much intervention is needed, many insurance plans cover at least partial orthodontic treatment, bringing down the out-of-pocket cost to the patient. To see if your dental insurance covers orthodontic work, please contact your provider, or contact Dr. Abelar’s office so we can help!

Remember, you don’t need to feel bad about your smile! There are many solutions to help improve the look and feel of your teeth without breaking the bank. To learn more about your cosmetic dental options, please contact Dr. Abelar’s office today!
