Did you know that smiling releases the “pleasure” hormones, serotonin and endorphins, that make you feel good? Or that scientific studies show that smiling really is contagious?
So, it’s safe to say that if you withhold your smile because you feel self-conscious about your appearance, you’re probably missing out on a lot of life’s little pleasures. If you aren’t pleased with the way your teeth look, you really owe it to yourself to investigate cosmetic dentistry to see how it can help.
Budget-Conscious Cosmetic Dental Options
You may dismiss cosmetic dental treatments because you can’t imagine how much you would have to invest to get the “Hollywood” smile you want. But the truth is that you don’t have to bust your budget to achieve your goal of a more confident smile.
With that in mind, here are three cosmetic options you should consider:
Professional Teeth Whitening
Have you spent a lot of time and money on store-bought whiteners only to be disappointed by the lack of results? We’re all cost-conscious, but while these products may save you some money you may end up spending more in the long run than if you had booked an appointment for whitening with your dentist.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Even if you have only a small chip in a tooth, you feel like that’s all anyone notices about you when you smile. But there is a procedure called cosmetic dental bonding that uses a tooth-colored composite filling material to rebuild chipped or broken teeth, but it can also be used to close uneven gaps and spacing, cover a severely stained tooth, or completely alter its shape.
Yes, a full set of veneers may be an investment that you’re just not willing to make. But not everyone needs a full makeover with veneers. In many cases, one or two veneers may be all that’s needed to restore the harmony and balance of your smile.
