At David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Pearland, our smile makeover patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a valuable investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, attractive smile cannot be measured in dollars. We acknowledge, 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 repair a tooth that has been chipped.
When David C. Montz repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Dr. Montz expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr. Montz performs any needed trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Dental bonding is frequently less expensive than porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Call us at 832-895-5120 to discuss cosmetic dental financing options.
Beware of brand-new Houston area practices that advertise uncommonly low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The competence and artistic ability required to achieve 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 makeover.
Most Pearland people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening procedures. David C. Montz recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and result in tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and spotty coloration.
Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you decide on an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to achieve even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more economical in the long run.
