At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, our smile makeover patients believe that cosmetic dentistry is a valuable investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, desirable smile cannot be measured in dollars. We recognize, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.
Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to beautify your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.
In many cases, dental bonding can be used to correct a tooth that has been chipped.
When we repair a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. We mold the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, We perform any needed trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Dental bonding is commonly less expensive than porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
Most people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening procedures. We recommend scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and cause tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and irregular coloration.
Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you opt for an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to obtain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more economical in the long run.
