Chances are that you still might be having those silver, or mercury fillings from your teens, a simple solution would be to replace them with tooth colored fillings. If they are small replace it with white fillings, and if large replace them with porcelain inlays /onlays. Porcelain inlays and onlays generally leak less , they last you much longer than white fillings,and with stand the forces of your bite better.
If you do have minor overcrowding of your teeth, a quick fix , can be Cosmetic Contouring by a Cosmetic Dentist, this subtle shaping procedure , is usually recommended for slightly uneven or longer teeth, and can usually be accomplished in one visit.
The price for dental cosmetic contouring, or cosmetic contouring of smile line procedure ranges from $100-$400 per tooth, up to $4500 -$5000 for the entire Smile.
If you do have minor gaps, chipped, decayed, broken tooth, or tooth sensitivity at the roots (near your gums), you might consider Dental Bonding , or Tooth Bonding, to fix your problem. Dental bonding is instantly, and is a one visit procedure.
The price for Dental bonding ranges from $750- $2000 per tooth depending on the severity and what your bite or xrays shows.
I recommend a comprehesive examination, and evaluation with your cosmetic dentist , to gather necessary information needed.Usually cosmetic dentist needs complete xrays, impressions of your teeth (study models), bite analysis , intra oral photos of your teeth, and measurements of your gums and teeth , to come up with proper diagnosis and discuss different options of treatment for you.
The price for complete dental evaluation can range from $750-$1500.
Dental problems if be prevented at an early age , saves you tremendous time, stress , and money due to serious major treatment you could have avoided at your early age. I do recommend two to three cleaning yearly and check ups.
