At Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles, our smile redesign patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a beneficial investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, appealing smile cannot be measured in dollars. We agree, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.
Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to enhance 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 Bill Dorfman repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Dr. Dorfman expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr. Dorfman performs any required trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.
Dental bonding is frequently less pricey than porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Call us at 310-277-5678 to discuss cosmetic dental financing options.
Beware of brand-new Beverly Hills area practices that advertise immensely low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The ability and artistic ability needed to realize 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 Los Angeles people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening procedures. Bill Dorfman recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and lead to tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and spotty 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 achieve even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more cost-effective in the long run.
