Is there something about your smile that you wish you could change? If so, you are not alone. A survey conducted by OnePoll found that a whopping 61% of Americans want to fix an issue with their teeth. However, many people believe that getting a cosmetic dental treatment is not possible due to the cost. The good news is that there are many affordable ways to enhance your grin. Read on to learn about some affordable ways to upgrade your pearly whites and possible financing options.

What Are Some Affordable Cosmetic Dental Treatments?

If you want to improve your smile in some way by correcting a dental flaw, there are several available treatments that are both effective and affordable. These can include:

  • Professional teeth whitening – You may have tried over-the-counter whitening products to save money and get a brighter smile, but they didn’t provide the results you wanted. Professional teeth whitening can not only completely transform your teeth, but it is also one of the most cost-effective cosmetic dental services. You can either have an in-office treatment for whiter teeth in an hour or take-home custom-made trays to wear over the course of two weeks. Either way, your smile will become at least eight shades whiter!
  • Cosmetic dental bonding – This treatment can correct minor imperfections such as chips, stains, or gaps. By carefully sculpting composite resin over the teeth, your dentist can cover your dental issue. This tooth-colored material is then hardened with a special UV light for a final perfected finish. The process is non-invasive and can usually be completed in just a single visit.
  • Metal-free restorations – These tooth-colored restorations can fix any damaged or decayed teeth for a more seamless appearance. Not only will your smile be free from unsightly metal, but you also won’t have to worry about any complications down the road. By choosing metal-free crowns, they will not only look very natural but protect your pearly whites from any further damage.

What Are My Financial Options?

Other than metal-free restorations, most cosmetic treatments are not covered by dental insurance since they are not considered “essential” to your oral health. Fortunately, there are other financing options that are possible for you! Your dental office may offer third-party financing through companies like CareCredit. If you are eligible for this financing option, your payment for your treatment can be broken up into small, monthly installments. Many of these plans also come with very minimal interest, meaning you won’t have to empty your wallet for enhancing your appearance.

If you want to enhance your smile, don’t let fear about the cost stop you from exploring your options. By visiting your dentist for a consultation, you can discover what treatment and financing option works best for you!
