Is Cosmetic Dentistry For You

Mar 6, 2008
Time was when people only visited the dentist if they were in pain or if they needed a regular check up - only the rich visited a dentist to improve their looks. All that has changed, nowadays an increasing number of people are opting for cosmetic dentistry. There is a real need in today's society for people to look their best and one way of doing this is to have their teeth corrected. It is no secret that people do judge others on first impressions, and one of those impressions is how the other person looks.

Cosmetic dentistry is not cheap and it can cost you more than $1,000 per tooth for a porcelain veneer. More people want to improve their teeth, which may have yellowed as a result of too much coffee or too many sodas - having their teeth professionally whitened can increase their confidence and make them look a lot better than before.

Studies suggest that many people believe that their teeth contribute more to their appearance than almost any other feature.

With the cost of cosmetic dentistry so high, some clinics offer easy payment schemes for people who want cosmetic dentistry. Those people who do have any of a number of different procedures to improve the look of their teeth and give them a better smile are almost always very pleased with the work they've had done. The most popular types of this type of dentistry are tooth whitening, enamelling and veneers. Celebrities in particular have contributed to the growth of this industry as they don't want to appear before their public with teeth that are mis-shaped or that have lost their gleam.

In America the market for cosmetic dentistry is thriving as western culture views people's attractiveness as very important. Specially qualified dentists offer a range of services to people who want to improve their looks by having their teeth whitened or having veneers or crowns.

Should you decide that you want to have this type of work done then you should be aware that in America this type of dentistry is not normally covered by your health insurance - unless it is a necessity as the result of an accident. Whatever process the dentist thinks would be best for your needs would usually be preceded by tooth contouring, which can cost you anything from $100 to more than $1,000. Cosmetic work on your teeth is not cheap by any means - and the overall cost could vary considerably depending on what your dentist recommends. Before you have any surgery you should make sure that the dentist you are seeing is a bona fide professional with the certificates to prove it.
