You Can’t Afford Cheap Dental Work

Monkton teeth whitening

Have you ever gotten a bargain on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of never-ending repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new auto would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a a lemon.

The same is true of unsatisfactory dental work. You have probably received glossy postcard ads that publicize amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, white fillings, and dental implants. The prices may be appealing, but make certain you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that advertise low procedure prices in their ads furnish deficient work—we are just cautioning patients not to opt for a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike an automobile, you can’t sell your smile and buy a new one.

We will use porcelain veneers as an example. What can go awry if you receive substandard porcelain veneers?

  • The dentist may be inexperienced and make mistakes: improper placement, substandard color matching, bite complications.
  • The materials may be inferior: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off.
  • The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out inferior work: unnatural color, poor fit.

If you are considering a smile makeover, talk to Dr. Craig Longenecker at Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS first.

During your consultation, you will learn about Dr. Longenecker’s years of experience, techniques, specialty training, and the number of procedures performed.  You will learn about the best materials for the restorations and receive details about the dental lab we use. We can also provide references if requested. And, of course, we will discuss how much each procedure will cost.

We are confident that you will find that our prices are competitive for the first-rate dentistry Dr. Longenecker delivers.

Don’t jeopardize your smile in an attempt to save some money. You really do get what you pay for.
