A smile is one of the first things you notice about another person. When a person has a big smile, it shows that he is happy and self-confident. Less than perfect teeth, however, can deter a person from smiling. Some people may think that fixing their teeth costs too much money and is not worth it. However, cosmetic dentistry options are more affordable than ever, and some insurances may even cover part of the cost.
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options are porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can transform crooked teeth into straight, beautiful teeth. They can also help fix teeth that have gaps in them, broken teeth and discolored teeth. A great aspect of porcelain veneers is that they are very natural looking. They are made from a mold of your actual tooth. Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are stain resistant. Additionally, some insurances will reduce the cost of veneers.
Invisible braces are another popular cosmetic dentistry option. They help straighten your teeth without being noticeable. Invisible braces are a great option for adults who are looking to straighten their teeth, but are too embarrassed to wear regular braces. Many major insurance companies are willing to cover part of the cost of invisible braces.
Another cosmetic dentistry option to consider is teeth whitening. The foods and drinks you consume can stain your teeth, leaving them with a yellow appearance. If you get your teeth whitened at your dentist’s office, your teeth will look whiter than ever and you will just want to keep smiling. The good part about teeth whitening is that you will get instant results. After approximately 90 minutes, you can leave the dentist’s, and show off your bright, new smile to everyone.
Do not neglect your smile just because it will cost you a little extra money to fix it. In the grand scheme of things, fixing your smile is not all that expensive when you consider that it is part of your first impression with every person you meet. It will all be worth it in the end when you have a big, beautiful, confident smile to show off to the world.
It is that time of year again--tax season! While some people approach April 15 with a sense of dread, some actually look forward to it because it means they are getting money back from the government. If you are lucky enough to be getting a tax return, consider investing in yourself and spending it on your dental needs this year.
Many of us have dental work we know we need but have been putting off for financial reasons. It can be hard to justify spending money on ourselves when other family or household expenses seem to take higher priority. That is completely understandable, however, neglecting your own health can also have expensive consequences. Simply put--it won't get better on its own and will only get worse and more costly as time goes on.
If you don't need dental treatment, perhaps you have always wanted to get some cosmetic work done but didn't have the extra money. Whether it is invisible braces to finally get straight teeth or a few veneers to fix a gap or something as simple as teeth whitening--now may be your opportunity to finally put yourself first.
So no matter what you may need or be interested in, consider using your tax return on yourself this year. Dr. Mary is always happy to sit down and talk with you about what you want done. Feel free to call us anytime at 303-779-2797 to set up a free consultation.

We were proud to participate in our first Give Kids a Smile! Day last Friday, February 3. Although Mother Nature made it challenging with over a foot of snow, we were still proud to offer several children without dental insurance free exams, cleanings, and x-rays. We look forward to participating in the event again next year and cross our fingers that the weather will be more accommodating for everyone!
