Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment: Are financing options available?
With a tight economy, quite often dental treatment is put on the back burner to accommodate other needs. However, with the excellent payment plans available, your cosmetic dentist can outline a plan that will work with your timeline and budgetary needs.
Treatment such as teeth whitening can provide a powerful impact on appearance in one brief appointment with your cosmetic dentist, or kits are available to take home to brighten your smile in the privacy of your home, and at your own pace.
While teeth whitening is an affordable luxury, there are other procedures that may be needed beyond teeth whitening. Among them are dental veneers which are wafer thin shells designed to permanently cement on the front of teeth marred by:
- Stain – Intrinsic stains due to age or medications may not be affected by whitening; veneers can be used to treat one or several teeth as your dental provider has the expertise to match the veneers to surrounding teeth making them blend perfectly.
- Chipped, cracked, misshapen – Teeth covered with veneers are often fortified with this treatment; dental imperfections disappear while teeth are strengthened.
- Gaps/spaces between teeth – Teeth appear neat and symmetrical once veneers are placed.
Losing one or more teeth presents issues from appearance to speaking and eating. But dental implants can restore those abilities by replacing lost teeth with a product so natural, no one will be able to tell which teeth are biological.
The implant itself is surgically imbedded in gum tissue where tooth loss has occurred. Over the next four to six months, the surgical area heals and the implant fuses to bone tissue. The implant will ultimately provide the strength and stability for the restoration that covers it. The crown or implant supported bridge will be permanently cemented into place, and dental aesthetics along with functionality are restored.
