cosmetic dentistryHaving an attractive smile can be fairly expensive. From teeth straightening to teeth whitening, it can seem like your dental bills will only continue to add up for the remainder of your life. However, did you know that there are other cosmetic procedures that you can get that will strengthen your smile without breaking the bank? Read on to learn more.

Dental Whitening

Your teeth can become yellow due to a variety of things including beverages like black tea and coffee. And although getting your teeth professionally whitened by Dr. Scott Tamura might seem like it will cost you a fortune you may be wrong. First and foremost when looking into whitening your teeth, try an over-the-counter solution like whitening strips or even whitening toothpastes— these options are great at ridding your teeth of surface stains. However, if those don’t work, come see Dr. Scott Tamura about getting some bleaching trays made for you. Although there might be a small expense up front, this kind of whitening will give you the results that you want and desire.

Dental Bonding

If you have a chipped or broken front tooth, you might think that the only option available to you is to get a dental veneer. Running about $500-$1300 on average per veneer, dental veneers are not a frugal option for many patients to even consider. However, that’s where dental bonding comes into play. Dental bonding is the process in which a tooth colored resin is applied over the top of your existing tooth in order to give you back a straight smile. Although they typically don’t last as long as veneers, dental bonding is a very affordable and tasteful option for patients to choose from.

Metal Braces

Although things like Invisalign have taken the cosmetic dentistry field by storm in the past few years, they are a bit more expensive than other dental straightening options. That’s why Dr. Scott Tamura offers patients a wide variety of teeth straightening options to choose from, including traditional metal braces. Traditional metal braces are an extremely effective and affordable way to straighten your teeth without breaking the bank.

From dental whitening to metal braces, there are many affordable solutions to help you get the best looking smile possible. To learn more, contact Dr. Scott Tamura’s office today to schedule an appointment!
