Demystifying 3 Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

posted in: Cosmetic Dentistry | 0

Discolored, cracked, or chipped teeth can make a person lose their self-confidence. For years the thought of cosmetic dentistry offered rumors of cost, inaccessibility to all, and the difficulty for most to benefit from the full range of procedures.


Nowadays, the misconceptions and myths of cosmetic dentistry are now demystified. Keep reading as we debunk three myths about cosmetic dentistry!

MYTH #1: Your Smile Will Look Unnatural

One of the myths people hear is that once you have a cosmetic dentistry procedure done, your smile will look unnatural. Ill-fitting veneers or overly white teeth do not look natural, and we make sure you have a cleaner smile without a strange look and feel.

At Boger Dental, we customize our crowns and veneers to give our patients a natural and healthy looking smile. Whether it’s bonded or a filling, our procedures seamlessly blend into your teeth, which means we try our best to save as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.

MYTH #2: It’s Unnecessary to have Cosmetic Dentistry

Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for “cosmetic,” reasons. Sometimes people have crooked or cracked teeth, or they have a misaligned jaw. To fix those issues, Invisalign can straighten and improve a person’s smile. All of which, fall under cosmetic dentistry. Even helping a person stop decay on a broken tooth is incredibly beneficial to the oral health of that patient.

MYTH #3: Cosmetic Dentistry is Expensive

Years ago, cosmetic dentistry may have been an expensive luxury to some. Now that it’s become more readily available and affordable, most people are jumping on the bandwagon to give it a shot. Not only do some practices allow for payment plans or financing, but Dental Insurance could also cover a portion of your treatment. That means more and more people, from all walks of life, can enjoy the incredible benefits of cosmetic dentistry.

We suggest you check with your insurance policy before looking into any procedure. Although, at Boger, we do offer a few financing and payment options, so that everyone can get a celebrity-worthy smile.
