At Jeff Gray DDS – Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry in La Mesa, our smile makeover 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 improve 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 Jeff Gray repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Dr, Gray expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr, Gray performs any needed trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Beware of brand-new San Diego area practices that advertise extremely low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The expertise and artistic ability needed to attain 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 La Mesa people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening procedures. Jeff Gray 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 elect 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 economical in the long run.
