At Canyon Rim Dental in Mesa AZ, our cosmetic dental smile makeover patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a beneficial investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, attractive smile cannot be measured in dollars. We recognize, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.
Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to upgrade your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.
In many cases, dental bonding can be used to repair a tooth that has been chipped.
When we repair a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. We expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, we perform any required trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Dental bonding is usually less costly than porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
Beware of brand-new practices that advertise very low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The proficiency and artistic ability necessary to attain minuscule tolerances should not be undertaken by a beginner. Thoroughly research any new cosmetic dentist you are considering for any cosmetic dental procedures or complete cosmetic dental smile makeover.
Most people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening methods. We recommend scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and result in tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and uneven coloration.
Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you choose an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to attain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more economical in the long run.
