If you think you can’t afford cosmetic dentistry, it's time to think again.
As we write this blog, we’re in the last week of January, and it's fair to say that 2017 has lost some of its novelty factor. We’ve finished wishing people a Happy New Year, and finished writing 2016 on our cheques.
So what do we know about the new year? How is it panning out so far? Well, from a dental perspective, there’s definite signs of a trend to be seen already. And top of the trend list, in our opinion, is the growing move towards what used to be called cosmetic dentistry – but is now almost part of the mainstream.
We’re thinking, in particular, of teeth crowns, where the level of interest seems to be growing by the day. And it's easy to see why. They represent a way of getting an A-list smile for prices that are totally affordable. So what’s not to like about crowns?
The reason that tooth crown prices have dropped so much in recent times owes much to how modern dental surgeries are organised these days. Streamlining is the buzzword, and every conceivable effort is made to ensure that the whole process takes place as quickly and as smoothly as possible. The resulting savings in time can then be passed on to the patient, which is great news if you happen to be in the market for a new smile.
You can also control the price you pay by opting for different forms of dental crowns – anything from zirconium crowns to porcelain models. And it will surely surprise you to know that if you opt for the latter, you can have one fitted for as little as €350.
This is truly staggering when you consider the difference it will make to your smile – and to your self-confidence. And remember that you can expect decades of wear from your new crown, assuming that you take care of it in line with our recommendations.
Another thing to consider is that you don’t have to shell out all at once for your treatment. Here at MyDental, we offer a 0% Dental Finance Plan that lets you spread the cost over three months, six months or nine months – without paying a single cent in interest for the privilege.
This can be particularly handy when you need to have a major amount of work carried out, of if multiple children in a family need braces at the same time, for example.
Whatever form of crown you have fitted, you can be totally confident that it will not just make your smile look great, but it will also restore the full level of functionality of the treated tooth. You can chomp into an apple or chew on a steak, safe in the knowledge that your tooth is totally up to the task.
