cosmetic-dental-options If you’re unhappy with your smile, it can really damage your self-confidence. Hiding your smile from the world isn’t the answer. Cosmetic dentistry offers a solution, but it’s one that your dental insurance probably won’t cover. At Henson Family Dental, we don’t want that to keep you from the smile you’ve been dreaming about. Alongside our affordable service, we’d like to give you a few tips on how to save money for cosmetic dental care.


CareCredit is a wonderful option for cosmetic dentistry, because it allows you to make monthly payments on the dental services you require. So, instead of paying all at once, you can space out your payments, making it more manageable. We, at Henson Family Dental proudly accept CareCredit.

Cut out Cable

Cable often costs over $100 a month. You can find most, if not all, your favorite shows on Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. Why pay more when you can get the same shows for a fraction of the cost?

Make Coffee at Home

Making coffee at home can save some serious cash. You can easily spend five or six dollars on one cup of coffee at a coffee shop. Limiting the number of fancy coffee shop beverages you drink per week will help you save up for your cosmetic dentistry, and it will likely do your teeth a few favors in the process. Most coffee shop coffees are packed with sugar, which can cause tooth decay. Drinking coffee at home will benefit your smile in more ways than one.

Use DIY Tips

Don’t pay a fortune for hair products and face masks when you can get the same results from DIY treatments. There are a lot of great, and cheap, alternatives online. Simply search through a few blogs or websites, and find a DIY project that will work for your hair and skin care needs.

Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

Yes, making sacrifices is never fun, but you have to remember why you’re doing it. If your smile makes you insecure, and you want veneers, porcelain crowns, or professional teeth whitening, then you have to remind yourself that that’s what you’re saving for. You have to remember that the sacrifices you make now will be worth it when you look in the mirror and see a smile that you’re proud of. At Henson Family Dental we want you to take pride in your smile. We want you to show the world those pearly whites, and gain some confidence in the process. We provide quality service at affordable rates so that you can achieve your dream smile. For more information about our complete smile makeover, or any of our other services, please contact us today.
