The Cost vs. Value of Having Dental Treatment
In advanced cases of dental correction when cosmetic dentistry, dentures, and implants become necessary, many patients hesitate to move forward with their treatments due to the potential cost. While these treatment options may require some financial planning, the value of having them performed far outweighs the money spent. When considering having dental work done, it is important to remember the definitions of these two words:
- Cost: An amount paid or required in payment for a purchase; a price
- Value: Worth in usefulness or importance to the possessor; utility or merit
Is the Value Greater than the Cost? If “Yes,” it’s Worth it!
In terms of the value of having cosmetic dentistry, dentures, or implants, these treatments have tremendous short-term and long-term benefits such as:
- A confident, radiant smile that you are proud to show off
- Strong, natural teeth
- Maintaining healthy teeth
- Long-term management of the health and beauty of your smile
Rather than thinking about dental work from a cost perspective, remember that this is the smile that is with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while you eat, chew, talk, smile, laugh, and perform your daily functions. Not replacing your missing teeth can not only lead to embarrassment and self-consciousness, but it can also be detrimental to the strength and functionality of your bite.
While many of our patients pay with credit cards, cash or checks, we understand that sometimes you must finance extensive dental work. Therefore, our office is proud to participate with CareCredit, a healthcare credit agency. First, let’s meet you and find out what you need and want. Then if you need financing we’ll help you apply on CareCredit’s website, www.carecredit.com.
