Cosmetic dentistry: is it worth the price?
While your eyes may be the window to your soul, your smile is the mirror of your heart. A person’s smile is often one of the first things we notice. Unfortunately, there are so many people who are embarrassed about their smile. Whether this is because of discoloured teeth, uneven teeth, gaps or missing teeth, nothing should stand in the way of your happiness and your ability to express this to the world.
Cosmetic dentistry could be your answer to all these concerns. While it may seem superficial, cosmetic dentistry can help to improve your smile, teeth and help you live a happier life.
Improve Your Bite
One of the most common issues our clients have is concern about their bite. Whether you have an under bite, over bite, cross bite or uneven teeth this can impact your ability to clean and floss properly. This increases your risk of cavities, decay and even gum disease.
Braces are an obvious solution to this, but we know many people young and old are hesitant to live with braces for a prolonged period of time. Luckily, Invisalign or other clear aligner system can be used to treat crowded teeth, spacing problems, and any issues you may have with your bite while appearing completely invisible on your teeth. By using clear aligners to fix the alignment of your teeth you won’t have to worry about being embarrassed about crooked teeth or braces.
Improve Your Oral Health
Not only can cosmetic dentistry improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but it can also improve the health of your teeth and gums. If left untreated, decay can spread to other areas of your mouth. Studies have also shown a strong correlation between gum disease and other health concerns like diabetes, heart attacks, respiratory diseases, digestive disorders and even some types of cancer.
Caring for your teeth is an important step in caring for your whole body! At Care Dental Camberwell we offer services like dental crowns which work to help strengthen teeth when they become weakened due to decay or injury. Dental crowns also prevent further damage from impacting the tooth. We also offer full mouth reconstructions for clients who may have lost or broken a number of teeth and need to restore the function of their mouth completely.
What Is The Cost?
The dilemma many of our clients have when it comes to cosmetic dentistry is the question of cost. Is cosmetic dentistry worth the cost? At Care Dental Camberwell we believe it is. Many of our services in cosmetic dentistry are offered at an affordable rate, particularly considering that these procedures are an investment that will last a lifetime. Of course, the price will depend on the kind of procedure you opt for. So, you should consider whether or not cosmetic dentistry is worth the cost to you. These are some of the most common cosmetic procedures and their costs.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed these days. Professional whitening at Care Dental Camberwell typically costs between $350 to $595. The price depends on the chemicals used and how many sittings you attend to attain the perfect smile.
Dental implants are the perfect way to treat teeth that are missing or severely damaged. An implant will replace this tooth all the way down to the root, improving your oral health and your smile. Each dental implant usually costs between $4000-$5500.
Veneers are the best way to achieve a brand new smile. The procedure is often called the ‘movie star smile’ because of the countless celebrities who have undergone this procedure. Veneers are thin porcelain or composite laminates that are placed directly over the teeth. They effectively transform the appearance of your mouth.
Veneers produce dramatic results and are consequently one of the more expensive treatments. Treatment on a singular tooth can cost anywhere between $1350 to $1650 for porcelain veneers. Composite veneers start from approximately $500 per tooth.
Invisalign or Clean Aligners
Invisalign is a clear and invisible brace system which enables patients to get the smile of their dreams without anybody even knowing they have braces. It can be used to treat crooked teeth, crowded teeth, spaces between the teeth and problems with the bite.
Because Invisalign treatments vary depending on the person, it is best to contact Care Dental Camberwell today to book and appointment. One of our experienced dentists will be able to inform you of the costs.
Cosmetic dentistry is an investment that will help improve not only your smile but your overall health. With the array of cosmetic procedures performed at Care Dental Camberwell you never have to be ashamed of your smile again.
