If you are considering cosmetic dentistry to fix some of the problems with your smile, you might be tempted to think that it would be best to try to save money. This may involve working with a dentist that you aren’t fully confident in, or getting a less than ideal treatment plan that isn’t intended to last a long time.
But there are many good reasons why it’s best to invest your money in quality
The Dentistry Will Last Longer Than the Money
First, it’s important to remember that money comes and goes. Any money you save by working with a cheaper dentist or getting a cheaper treatment plan will eventually be spent on something. Or if you keep it in a savings account, it will become undifferentiated with the rest of the money there. It won’t be the money you saved anymore. And it won’t make you happy.
But if you invest in a good quality restoration, you will still be smiling ten, fifteen years, or more in the future and you’ll still get enjoyment out of your smile makeover.
Poor Restorations Can Damage Your Natural Teeth
It’s also important to remember that poor restorations aren’t always harmless. Your natural teeth are an asset that you can never replace. Poor dentist technique or poor quality restorations can lead to damage of your natural teeth that you will either have to live with or pay to get repaired. And, unfortunately, in many cases,there is simply no way to repair your damaged teeth.
You Might Save Money in the Long Run
You might think you’re getting a bargain by getting cheap cosmetic dentistry now, but it’s likely that the cheap dentistry will actually be much more expensive than what seems more expensive now. Especially if you can avoid damage to your teeth, you will spend less overall by investing in quality dentistry today.
You Won’t Be Happy with Poor Results
The whole reason you’re considering getting cosmetic dentistry in the first place is because you’re unhappy with your smile. Does it make sense, then, to replace it with something you won’t be any happier with? Of course not. The only thing that makes sense is investing in quality dentistry that’s going to give you the results you desire.
You Might Be Uncomfortable
Poor cosmetic dentistry might not just look bad — it might feel bad, too. Your teeth might not fit together properly, causing jaw pain. They might contact too soon, causing clicking and uncomfortable tooth contacts. They are more likely to be sensitive because they didn’t retain enough natural tooth material or cover them properly. Isn’t it worth investing a little more to try to avoid these risks?
You Will Save Time
If your cosmetic dentistry is done right the first time, you won’t need to come back multiple times trying to get it refitted or adjusted. You won’t have to replace it for a long time, either. Both of these translate into dental visits you won’t have to make in the future, and that’s time that you save. And, again, time is something you can never get back for any amount of money in the world. Wouldn’t you rather spend your time enjoying your smile, not trying to get it fixed again?
