Cosmetic dentistry is an excellent choice if you’re self-conscious about your smile. But the procedures can be expensive, and are usually not covered by dental insurance unless they’re needed for reasons related to your oral health.
So is seeing a cosmetic dentist really worth the investment? Yes! And in this blog from Forest Lake Smiles, we’ll discuss a few reasons why you may want to invest in your smile, and get a cosmetic smile makeover from Dr. Jonathan Siverson.
This is the most obvious benefit, but it’s also the most important. If your smile has flaws like stains, chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, and misshapen or uneven teeth, you may not feel good about how you look. You may hide your smile from others, avoid eating and laughing among acquaintances or coworkers, and feel unhappy with your overall appearance.
With cosmetic dentistry, though, you can address each specific issue with your smile. You can whiten your smile with teeth whitening, repair chipped teeth with dental bonding, fill gaps in your smile with veneers, and much more.
Dr. Siverson will work with you to create a personalized smile treatment plan that will leave you feeling proud of your smile once again. Enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence are worth the price of investing in cosmetic dentistry.
Whether you’re looking to meet new people, form a new romantic relationship, or even advance in your job or career, a beautiful smile can help you make a better first impression. Smiling can make other people feel more comfortable, make you seem more genuine and open, and form a better overall first impression, which can be helpful in a variety of social and professional situations!
Cosmetic dentistry is not a short-term investment. Treatments like dental bonding can easily last 8+ years, and veneers usually last up to 10-20 years with proper care. When you choose expert cosmetic care from an experienced dentist, you’re making an investment that will pay off for years to come.
So while the initial costs of cosmetic treatment can be high, the cost is worth it in the long run. And at Forest Lake Smiles, we offer payment plans to help you manage the cost of your cosmetic care. Ask us for more details during your appointment!
Making an investment in your smile means that you’ll be more conscious of your oral health. Patients who have gotten cosmetic treatment are more likely to brush and floss properly to protect their new smiles! This means that your overall oral health may improve.
In addition, many patients find it easier to brush and floss when their teeth are more even and consistent in size and position, so certain treatments like veneers or cosmetic Invisalign treatment can help you take better care of your teeth and gums.
