You may be aware of the many benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Several researchers have concluded what many in the general public already suspected. Individuals with crooked, stained, or less-than-perfect teeth are generally viewed as less attractive, poorer, less successful, and even less trustworthy than their counterparts with straight, white teeth and better smiles.
Cosmetic dentistry has the ability to transform your smile. Whitening treatments can remove stains. Veneers can smooth chips and reshape teeth. Cosmetic orthodontics can move teeth into proper place subtly and comfortably. Even restorative techniques such as porcelain fillings and crowns are designed as much with beauty in mind as they are with strength and durability.
Your smile heavily influences how others perceive you. When your teeth are transformed, other aspects of your life may be transformed as well. The patient who never smiled and remained socially isolated may, post-treatment, be proud to show off improved teeth to others thanks to newfound confidence.
Dr. Charles Martin and his team understand your dental anxiety may have to do with cost. As with cosmetic procedures in other medical fields, your treatment may not be covered by insurance, but every policy is different and every case is different. The Richmond Smile Center staff is experienced with navigating the complex insurance claims process, and we will work with companies to secure any benefits due to you.
For whatever the company doesn't pick up, or for those who are not insured, Dr. Martin offers a number of options to ease the cost associated with the cosmetic treatment you want and need.
In addition to other payment options, Richmond Smile Center offers financing to help stretch the balance of your payment over several months. You may qualify to have treatment financed (up to $40,000) at no interest. You may be approved immediately, and no down or upfront payments are necessary.
Keep in mind, that the longer you go without treatment the greater the odds of developing much more problems that require costly extensive treatment down the road. Some treatments that may seem from the outset purely cosmetic can have functional implications; for instance, consider how tooth crowding and other spacing issues that warrant corrective measures like Invisalign may promote tooth decay because it is harder to keep areas between teeth clean.
