Affordable cosmetic dentistry solution?
Hello! My teeth have always made me subconscious. But now that I’m nearly 30 years old, I feel like I need to take care of this once and for all. The problem is that I really don’t have much extra money. Do you know if there is an affordable cosmetic dentistry solution?

There is a cosmetic dentist treatment called cosmetic contouring that you may be interested in. This is a much more affordable option than expensive porcelain veneers. A complete smile makeover with porcelain veneers can cost you thousands, even over ten thousand dollars. What cosmetic contouring does is actually reshape your teeth. This will make very subtle changes to improve the overall appearance of your teeth.
The first thing you need to do is find an expert cosmetic dentist because not just any general dentist can do this kind of artistic work well. Since you’ve waited so long to take care of your smile, you deserve only the best. So you need to seek out a dentist that has an artistic approach and is confident in his or her abilities. Don’t ever push any dentist out of their comfort zone.
Cosmetic contouring can be done it one to three appointments. First, dental x-rays will be done to make sure you are a good candidate and your teeth are healthy enough to withstand the procedure. What happens is that a special drill or laser will actually remove very tiny portions of your tooth. You don’t have to get a numbing agent because it is non-invasive. The sides of the teeth are then handcrafted and shaped to give you a beautiful new smile. When the desired look is achieved the teeth are polished.
If there are any bite problems, a composite bonding material that is tooth-colored will be applied to the area that needs fixed. Tooth bonding on the front teeth should be done by only the most talented cosmetic dentist.
When you start price shopping, you will find that cosmetic contouring is very affordable and can significantly improve your smile.
