There are many reasons to smile: you feel better, people around you react more favorably towards you, and you tend to get things done more easily when you do. So if you try to hide your teeth when you do smile, there are things you can do to help you smile more often. Collectively these things are referred to as a smile makeover. It consists of many different procedures and below we highlight a few of the most common ways to make your smile look just the way you want it to.
Dental veneers are the outer layer of porcelain that is placed on the surface of your teeth to replace eroded enamel. They help brighten and align your teeth, but they also help protect them and make them more durable. In this way they are just as much a benefit to your appearance as they are to your health.
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive bleaching procedure that helps you stand out in the crowd, and makes your teeth look whiter and healthier. Having white teeth is something that men and women value equally, both in themselves as well as in each other.
Dental implants are another product that can be categorized as cosmetic or prosthetic. This is because they can help those who are in need of tooth replacement as a result of bone loss, as well as those who have lost their teeth due to reasons other than decay. For example, victims of accidents may suffer from tooth loss.
Chipped tooth bonding is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to repair chipped teeth. Dr. Marina Funtik uses a tooth-colored material composite resin that bonds with the rest of the tooth, giving you a brand new smile.
Now as for the cost, depending on which procedures you are interested in you could be looking at something in the neighborhood of $800 and up, but the good news is that many of these procedures are covered by insurance.
So schedule a time to sit with Dr. Marina Funtik and find out what she can do to help you today!
