Have you ever heard the old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” You probably have, and the reason is that it’s true.
When it comes to deciding on dental care, however, it can sometimes be difficult to choose which ounce is right for you. Your mouth is unique—and so are your needs. Deciding between another filling or a new crown, for instance, means weighing several variables: cost, your appearance, and minimizing the risk of future tooth loss.
And cost, the variable that—let’s face it—is the first to come to mind, should be split into cost today versus cost over the years.
We’re proud to offer a variety of alternatives. The power is yours to choose which ounce of prevention is right for you. Replacing that filling may be the least expensive response to the problem. But compared with the total cost of re-filling the same tooth many times and the possible loss of the tooth to fracturing, a new crown may be a less costly—and more attractive alternative.
Remember, there’s no dental procedure that’s right for everyone—that’s why we need options. So, the more you know about your choices, the better chance there is you’ll make the right one for yourself and your family.
We’re here to answer any questions you might have about procedures, recommendations, costs, and to help you choose which solutions are best for you. Just let us know.
