At The Richardson Dentist-Kerry M. Goad, DDS in Richardson, our cosmetic dental smile makeover patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a beneficial investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, desirable smile cannot be measured in dollars. We recognize, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.
Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to beautify your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.
In many cases, dental bonding can be used to fix a tooth that has been chipped.
When Dr. Kerry M. Goad repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Dr. Goad expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr. Goad performs any needed trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Beware of brand-new North Dallas area practices that advertise uncommonly low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The expertise and artistic ability needed to realize 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 redesign.
Most Lake Highlands area people are aware that there are several different teeth whitening procedures. Kerry M. Goad recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and bring about tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and uneven 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 realize even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more reasonably priced in the long run.
