We’ve all heard the saying, “You get what you pay for.” And while it’s sometimes a hard lesson to learn, it’s no less true in the world of dentistry. When things go awry in your mouth, looking for the cheapest option can be tempting, but really, we’re talking about your mouth here. And as your Westchester prosthodontist, we know that oral health is an investment for a healthy and happy life!
If you’re considering dental implants in Westchester, but are balking at the price tag, consider the following:
Your smile IS your first impression. Make it a good one. Unsightly teeth are the bane of an impression’s existence, and we don’t want to mess around with cheaper, less quality options when dealing with your money maker (your smile, of course).
Dental implants are built to last, so once set by your dental implant surgeon in Westchester, you’re done for life. No need to have crowns or bridges replaced every 7 years or so, which could lead to higher costs when added up.
Closest Thing to Natural
Crowns and bridges can deteriorate or interfere with speaking or eating. But, dental implants feel, look, and act like natural teeth, leaving you with no impediments.
Sometimes, with individual tooth replacements, the shape of your face can change with sinking cheeks and sagging jaw lines. But with dental implants, the shape of your smile and face will remain the same.
No Soaking Cups
Dental implants do not need soaking in a cup overnight like your grandma’s dentures. Enough said.
Like Nothing Ever Went Wrong in the First Place
With other options, there is a worry that things will wiggle, fall out, look out of place, and embarrass us when we talk, eat, or laugh. But with dental implants, you can live your life as if nothing was ever wrong with your teeth in the first place.
Dental implants are the only dental restoration method that actually fosters and encourages bone growth in your jaw. With other methods, the lack of a tooth and root can lead to deterioration of the jaw bone, leaving it vulnerable. With implants, the new titanium roots bond with the bone, making your jaw strong.
In short, dental implants are a reliable, healthy, and excellent investment in your smile. Call your Westchester cosmetic dentist and find out more today!
