Happy SmilesWhat would you change about your smile if money were no object? It’s a question that deserves serious consideration, and your answer says a lot about how you view your smile and your oral health. Even if you don’t desire to have the whitest teeth in Smithfield, you probably wouldn’t mind teeth that were stronger or straighter—or a little whiter.

We often find that the cost of quality restorative and cosmetic dental services can hinder many patients from obtaining their desired level of oral health. Dental insurance plans can help to relieve a portion of the financial responsibility, but most major dental insurance plans are loaded with clauses, limitations, and restrictions. Working within the confines of your insurance plan could keep your smile on hold for so long that you eventually give up hope.

A growing number of dental patients are opting for healthcare financing options such as CareCredit to fund the dental treatment that they have chosen. CareCredit enables dental patients to be prequalified for a line of credit which can be used to cover all dental procedures, including:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Fillings
  • Invisalign orthodontics
  • Periodontal therapy

CareCredit is particularly appealing because it can be shared amongst family members and can even be used at your veterinarian’s office. According to your circumstances, you may be eligible for an interest-free financing plan and there are various monthly payment options which are designed to fit your budget.

To determine how much credit you’ll need to have in order to get that great smile, begin by scheduling a consultation with your dentist. Ask for recommendations regarding the procedures that will make your smile stronger, healthier, or more attractive. Next, check to see which procedures are covered by your current dental insurance plan. Of the remaining balance, you may wish to make a cash payment to reduce the amount that will need to be financed. A member of the dental team can help you to apply online at CareCredit.com and you can find out if you have been approved in minutes. Just choose the payment plan that fits your budget and you can have the brightest smile in Smithfield before your first payment is due!
