At Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht in Staten Island, our smile transformation 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 agree, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.
Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to brighten 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 Dr. Hecht repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. He then expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr. Hecht performs any needed trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Dental bonding is generally less costly than porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Call us at 347-695-4380 to discuss cosmetic dental financing options.
Most people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening techniques. We recommend scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and cause tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and irregular coloration.
Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you elect an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to obtain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more reasonably priced in the long run.
Interested in these restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures? Don’t hesitate to give us a call at 347-695-4380. We look forward to hearing from you!
