4 Reasons to Invest in Cosmetic Dentistry

Could your smile use a makeover? If you’ve ever wished for a whiter, brighter, or straighter smile, you are an ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Dental procedures that are performed in order to improve the appearance of teeth fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry. 

Sometimes cosmetic procedures are all that is required to improve your smile. Other times restorative procedures may also need to be done to improve the health of your teeth. Either way, cosmetic dentistry is definitely worth the investment. Consider these 4 reasons to spend the necessary money on cosmetic dental procedures. 

  1. Make a Positive First Impression. It’s an unfortunate truth that many people make a snap judgement about a person they’ve just met based on the appearance of their teeth when they smile. What kind of impression does your smile make? If your teeth are discolored, crooked, gapped, or misshapen, you could be making a less than stellar first impression. Whether you’re going to a job interview, dating, or even meeting your potential future in-laws, you want to make the best possible first impression. Cosmetic dentistry can help make sure you do.
  2. Gain Confidence. Aside from how others see you, it is even more important that you feel good about yourself. You should be able to smile in the mirror and in pictures without feeling self-conscious about your appearance. When you meet someone new or even pass a stranger on the street, you want to be able to smile with confidence. Many people are unhappy with their smile and purposely avoid smiling at all, which is unfortunate, because just the act of smiling can improve your mood and the mood of others. Isn’t your happiness worth an investment in cosmetic dentistry?
  3. Improve Your Dental Health. While some cosmetic procedures are only superficial, others can actually restore and preserve the health of your teeth. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants preserves bone health in your jaw and keeps your teeth in proper alignment. Orthodontic treatments not only straighten your teeth, but also align your bite pattern, which can relieve pain in your jaw and ensure the future health of your teeth. Even some whitening treatments can strengthen the enamel of your teeth, which protects against decay. When you invest in cosmetic dentistry, you are also investing in your dental health.
  4. Financing Makes Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable. Have you been avoiding cosmetic procedures or putting them off due to the cost? The cost of cosmetic dentistry can seem daunting, especially because it is not normally covered by dental insurance, meaning you’ll pay for it all out of pocket. However, you don’t have to pay the total cost of the procedures you want up front. Financing is available to help spread the cost out over time so that you can make affordable monthly payments. CareCredit is one such financing option that is typically interest free for at least 12 months. Don’t let the cost of treatment prevent you from having the smile of your dreams.
