Are you looking to see a cosmetic dentist to correct imperfections in your teeth but haven’t got a clue about what to look out for? Such a dentist specialises in aesthetics as opposed to regular ones that generally limit themselves to function alone. Hence for problems like stained, broken or chipped teeth a cosmetic dentist can certainly help but only if you end up choosing the right ones.
One thing that most people don’t realise is that cosmetic dentistry isn’t actually a well established field in the dental profession. That is to say that any regular dentist can legally offer cosmetic dental services (and make more money) with no additional qualifications. Are they a good option for you? Probably not and yet you may just end up choosing such a dentist.
Needless to say, you’d want to opt for a highly recommended dentist in Sydney; one that is well versed in the cosmetic dental procedure that you’ve got in mind and has performed it plenty of times in the past with excellent results. More importantly, you’d want to make sure that your dentist has obtained additional training that truly inspires your confidence and affiliated with reputable training organisations in the said dental care profession – Australian Dental Association, Australian Society of Implant Dentistry, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, etc.
Prices of cosmetic dentistry in Sydney
Now that you have some idea about what to look out for when looking up reviews of cosmetic dentists in Sydney, you might be wondering about whether you can actually afford the procedure. Truth be told, cosmetic dental services can be fairly expensive and it doesn’t help that such procedures are almost always not covered by dental insurance.
The cost of cosmetic dental services vary depending on the procedure that you need done and the extent or severity of the problem. Professional teeth whitening tend to be the simplest and least expensive of the bunch costing around $425 on average. Porcelain veneers on the other hand are some of the most expensive cosmetic dental services that money can buy costing around $800 to $1200 per tooth; yes that’s for a single tooth.
The demand for a celebrity dentist
Considering the high cost of cosmetic dental services, it’s easy for some people to dismiss the idea as something that is only for the rich and the famous. While most celebrities are indeed avid fans of cosmetic dental services, the opportunity to correct any imperfection on one’s teeth is for everyone.
Cosmetic dentists hardly expect you to pay for any cosmetic dental procedure upfront. Financing options and flexible payment plans are almost always available allowing you to spread out the cost over a set number of months.
Porcelain veneers in Sydney
As mentioned above, the cost of porcelain veneers in Australia are some of the most expensive in the market and can easily amount to a small fortune. That said, most people would agree that it’s well worth it that is if you’re looking to achieve the best possible results.
Despite its cost, porcelain veneers remain highly sought after in the market simply because it perfectly mimics the appearance of healthy and sparkling white teeth. The veneers itself cover the tooth in question and instantly conceal any chipping or staining. Porcelain is also resistant to staining and widely regarded as the superior alternative to professional teeth whitening which needs to be done at least twice a year to maintain results.
To save cost, some people look for the cheapest porcelain veneers by opting for cosmetic dentists based in less populated areas in the country. Dental clinics located in metropolitan areas do tend to charge more than those located in the suburbs. Just don’t sacrifice quality for cost; keep in mind that fixing a botched can cost you a heck of a lot more as it often concerns full mouth rehabilitation.
