Dr. Charlie Sung: Hi everyone, it’s Dr. Charlie Sung from Choice Dental. Today we’re going to be talking about the variety of different cosmetic options available to improve your smile. So the first one is the most common one, which is just tooth whitening. So this is professional grade level tooth whitening where we can just whiten your teeth. Improving the colour of your teeth is one of the simplest and quickest ways to make like a big difference in your smile. It is one of the most affordable ways as well, compared to the other cosmetic dentistry options available. And in general it is the least invasive because there’s no drilling or needles involved in doing this kind of treatment. So it’s a very relatively painless process compared to the other treatment options. So the next most common treatment to improve the appearance of your teeth is straightening them and this can be done with braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign. So straightening crooked teeth can make quite a substantial difference in someone’s smile. It just gives that kind of like cleaner, straighter, more tidy look to your smile and which is what you see in TV and actors and things they all got nice straight teeth And so this is quite a popular option to make a substantial change in your smile for the better So the with these types of options does take a bit longer to do like compared to you know the tooth whitening option that we just Like talked about so the straightening your teeth typically takes between 12 to 24 months. And the cost to do so is a lot higher. It’s generally in that roughly six to $7,500 ballpark range for most cases if someone wants to have their teeth straightened. The other way to improve your smile that’s also very common is called veneers and crowns. So these are porcelain caps and like covers made over your teeth and the idea with this is to basically change the colour the shape and the alignment of the teeth by covering up what you’ve got already with the ceramic porcelain veneers and crowns. So just to give you a ballpark cost each crown or veneer is between fifteen to seventeen hundred dollars.

And usually people will be doing at least four to six teeth because that’s like the number of teeth most people show when they smile at minimum and Therefore like they’re you know this kind of treatment does add up to be quite costly However, the results are much quicker compared to if someone was to do braces or Invisalign Usually you can get like a new smile Done in a period of about two to three weeks and yeah, so this is a much faster and more rapid way to improve the color, shape and alignment of your teeth.
