Five tips to save money on dentistry

28th September 2014

Like anything in life, you get what you pay for. The investment is based on the time the dentist spends, the experience of the dentist, work being done and the types of materials used.

Five tips to save money on dentistry:
1. Prevention is cheaper than cure

Regular daily care of your teeth and gums will prevent problems in the future and leave you with lower dental bills. Your diet plays an important part in preventing dental disease (read more here).

2. Get an experienced dentist

A proven track record speaks volumes about a dentist. Do not be afraid to ask to see examples of similar treatments carried out by THAT dentist. How long will the treatment last before it needs replacing? What guarantees do they offer? Cheaper to pay once and do it right!

3. Get it right first time

If you are considering crowns, bridges, veneers or implants ask to meet the laboratory technician that will be making your work. They will want to see you to get the colour shade for your teeth and make sure your new smile matches your face, skin tone and age. Bow Lane has its own on-site dental laboratory.

4. Regular maintenance appointments

Once your mouth is returned to health your dentist and hygienist will develop a bespoke recare interval designed to keep your mouth and teeth healthy for life. They can spots early signs of disease which therefore make it easier and cheaper to repair (tooth repair has a lot of options).

5. Take out dental insurance

Dental insurance can save you a great deal of money on routine and emergency dental treatments. Read more here.
