Smile Makeover Cost: Budgeting for a New Smile

Smile makeover cost primarily depends on the scope of work required to provide the results you want. Your dentist's experience will also influence the overall cost of treatment. Dr. Steven Balloch offers flexible financing options to help you achieve the smile of your dreams without compromising your goals.

Many factors will influence the total cost of your smile makeover.

Estimating the Price of Smile Enhancement

Each patient comes into our office with different goals for their smile makeover. If your aesthetic issues are minor, such as small cracks, chips, and mild discoloration, non-invasive procedures such as teeth whitening or dental bonding could help you enhance your smile in a relatively affordable manner. If you are seeking highly transformative results, porcelain veneers provide incredibly lifelike results and beautiful symmetry, but will cost more than bonding.

Meanwhile, if you wish to achieve a more permanent improvement in symmetry, or if you have severe misalignment, Invisalign® may be recommended. In some instances, insurance plans will contribute to the cost of this alternative to metal braces.

If you are experiencing oral health issues such as tooth decay or gum disease, these will need to be resolved before cosmetic treatments can be administered. Often, these treatments are covered at least partially by insurance. However, issues such as missing teeth may require a greater out-of-pocket expense, since solutions such as dental implants are not usually covered. 

Every smile is dramatically different, and the only way to accurately determine the cost of your smile makeover is to schedule an initial consultation.

Choosing an Experienced Dentist

A smile makeover can also be more expensive depending on the experience of the dentist performing the procedures. Although it may be tempting to choose a practice advertising too-good-to-be-true prices, the final outcome of your treatment will benefit from an experienced dentist. After all, revision procedures are almost always more expensive than initial treatments. Dr. Balloch has three decades of experience, and has received national recognition for his work in various publications:
