Why Use Your Tax Return for Dental Work?

One of your best options? Investing in yourself – and specifically, your smile.

Whether you’re looking for a confidence boost with a bright, beautiful smile, or you want to cure a TMJ headache, dental work can be a great way to help you look and feel your best.

Here are three times where investing in your smile is a smart choice.

1. You Want to Increase Your Self-Confidence

A great first impression starts with a smile. If you suffer from cracked or discolored teeth, it can be hard to smile, and your self-image and confidence can suffer as a result.

At Boger Dental, we hear over and over that cosmetic procedures have been critical to helping patients gain confidence and feel great about their appearance. We’ve seen patients come in with their hand over their mouth in embarrassment, and leave ready to share their smile in front of a large group at a presentation.

What are your options for cosmetic dentistry? If you simply want a brighter smile, teeth whitening may be a good place to start. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive smile redesign, veneers or crowns may be a better option. And if you simply want to smooth out your smile, consider dental recontouring.

2. Cure Chronic Headaches

If you suffer from chronic headaches, you know how difficult they can be to treat.

At Boger Dental, we’ve found that chronic headaches and jaw pain are often symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, commonly known as TMJ.

What is TMJ disorder? It most often occurs when jaw muscles strain to compensate for a misaligned bite.

The solution? Neuromuscular dentistry is your best option for a long-term solution with proven results. This option addresses the root of the problem, rather than simply masking symptoms.

3. Restore Damaged or Missing Teeth

Do you need to repair or replace a tooth?

If you have a cracked or broken tooth, a dental implant can be a great solution. What are some of the biggest advantages of dental implants? They can last a lifetime, rarely need to be replaced, and integrate fully into your jaw, functioning almost identically to a real tooth.

Although they require a few months’ commitment from start to finish, they are well worth the investment and will keep you smiling for years to come. Learn more about the advantages of dental implants here.
