When most people think of cosmetic dentistry, they think of expensive procedures that only the rich can afford. They talk themselves out of it because they’re afraid it’s too expensive or vain for the average hard-working citizen. The truth is, cosmetic dentistry is certainly not just for looks, neither is it only for rich people. The Yuba City Dentistry Group offers a wide array of cosmetic dentistry products and services to improve smiles, teeth and oral health damaged by genetics, diet, unfortunate habits or accidents.
Consider teeth whitening. Though it does not improve the function of your teeth, it does give a boost to your confidence, encouraging you to smile more often and interact with those around you. It also motivates you to maintain your teeth by eating better and keeping an oral hygiene routine. Teeth whitening is friendly to your schedule, typically finishing within an hour at our dental practice. What’s more, it’s also friendly to your pocketbook with a reasonable, one-time cost.
A cracked or chipped tooth is not a feature most people want to show off, but many cannot afford the cost of veneers. Other options in cosmetic dentistry eliminate the need to simply accept a damaged tooth as a new feature of your smile. Using a method called tooth bonding, your dentist at the Yuba City Dentistry Group applies a composite resin to your tooth that fills in for any missing pieces. If roots are exposed, tooth bonding protects them from things like food debris, bacteria, and outside air. Tooth bonding also protects you from intense tooth pain by preventing the chip or crack from worsening. Usually, one visit is all that is needed to complete the process, and many insurance plans cover the procedure, since it can be both a cosmetic and therapeutic procedure.
Other procedures for cosmetic dentistry might take more time, but are now more affordable due to new techniques and technologies. For example, you can read the pages on our website about orthodontics like Invisalign or Snap-On Smiles for further information. If you want a better smile or better teeth, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get them. Please give our office a call or schedule a consultation online to discuss how affordable cosmetic dentistry can be for you.
