3 Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry Debunked! [BLOG]
Before you dismiss cosmetic dentistry, we want to make sure you’re not taking it off the table for the wrong reasons. That’s why our team at Carolina Bright Smiles in Hillsborough, NC is debunking three common myths about cosmetic dentistry so you can make a more informed decision about how to get a beautiful smile you’ll love!
*It’s Too Fake*
When you’re able to spot a cosmetic enhancement immediately in someone, whether you even know them or not, it’s likely a sign that the end results look a bit too fake.
The same is true for cosmetic dentistry. That’s because we all know that there is such a thing as looking too perfect, to the extent that a person’s teeth no longer look natural.
But in the hands of the right professional, like highly-trained dentist, Dr. Garrett, you can achieve stunning results without calling attention to the fact that your smile is somehow too cosmetically contrived.
He and our team rely on the latest technology and techniques to conceal teeth and gum imperfections for a lifelike, yet gorgeous smile that makes you feel better about yourself and leaves others noticing the beautiful finished product instead of the cosmetic treatment itself.
*It’s Too Expensive*
The issue of cost is all relative.
What you consider expensive may seem quite affordable to someone else.
Because every patient’s needs, goals, and budget vary, we offer a number of flexible payment options so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
But even aside from that flexibility, cosmetic dentistry itself covers a wide range of procedures and treatments that differ in cost and complexity.
So while some cosmetic treatments can seem too costly to you, there are many others, such as teeth whitening or tooth bonding, that are far simpler and more affordable than you might imagine!
*It’s Too Invasive & Painful*
Just like the cost, cosmetic dental procedures vary in process quite a bit.
As far as pain, you can put any apprehension aside when you trust our team at Carolina Bright Smiles.
No matter your treatment plan, we offer various options in dental sedation and comfort amenities especially catered to your needs. We go out of our way to make sure you’re as relaxed as possible.
With more complicated dental problems often comes more complicated, invasive treatment, but again, that will differ from patient to patient.
In fact, even the most extensive cosmetic solutions often don’t necessarily involve oral surgery at all. Certain procedures might involve some type of enamel modification, which may sound painful but isn’t, considering your tooth enamel doesn’t contain any nerve endings.
Call For A Consultation!
It’s time to learn the truth about modern cosmetic dentistry from a highly-qualified, experienced dentist like our own Dr. Garrett!
He can sit down with you to go over all your options that will render the results you’re looking for in the most efficient, affordable way to suit your dental needs and smile goals.
