At Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak, our cosmetic dental smile makeover patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a worthwhile investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, appealing smile cannot be measured in dollars. We agree, 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 correct a tooth that has been chipped.
When Steven Gustafson repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Dr. Gustafson expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr. Gustafson performs any necessary trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Dental bonding is typically less costly than porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Call us at 248-541-8770 to discuss cosmetic dental financing options.
Beware of brand-new Detroit area practices that advertise extremely low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The expertise 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 smile redesign.
Most Royal Oak people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening methods. Steven Gustafson recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and bring about tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and irregular coloration.
Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you elect 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 affordable in the long run.
