With the pressures of social media, people are starting to become more aware of their appearances. One thing that a lot of people are starting to become more conscious about is their smile. There are people who have naturally beautiful teeth, while others are just not that blessed. Luckily, there are services that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
These services are called cosmetic dentistry and they can fix a variety of problems you might be facing in regards to your teeth. They will be able to fix discoloration, rotting teeth, and any other problems you could have with your teeth. The only downside is that these services will come at a cost. Here are the average costs that can be expected for these treatments. Of course, they may vary depending on your location.
*Tooth Implants- Dental implants are a tricky procedure regardless of the location. They are especially tedious when it is the front of your mouth. For a dental implant, you will have a titanium replacement tooth root inserted into the bone socket of your jawbone. Your jawbone will heal around it, so it will be anchored securely to your jaw. This provides the foundation for your replacement tooth. It can cost around $1,700 to $1,800, or even more.
*Porcelain Veneers- When most people think of cosmetic dentistry, they think of the flawless, snow-white smile. The majority of the time this is achieved by porcelain veneers. This is when the dentist will shave down your natural tooth and put a fake tooth made out of porcelain over top of it. They look very nice, but you will pay per tooth so it will get expensive. If you are going to a high-end cosmetic dentist, then you should expect to pay up to $2,500 or more per tooth.
*Invisalign- This is a great service to have done if your teeth are healthy, but just aren’t as straight as you would like. It is similar to braces but instead of having chunky metal bits in your mouth, you will just have to wear clear retainers. It is a slow process, but it is relatively affordable in terms of cosmetic dentistry. The cost will start at $2,800 but depending on how crooked your teeth are will further determine that price. For minor cases, it can only take a few months and cost $3,600 or less. While if you are getting all of your teeth straightened it can cost $4,000 to $4,800.
