Will You Spend Your Tax Refund at the Dentist?

Were you lucky enough to get a tax refund? Have you mentally-spent the money, or are your weighing your options? Like many people you may be considering a luxury item, which you may, or may not regret later.

What about investing in the most important thing you can think of… your health?

Before your return starts to burn a hole in your pocket, here are some ways you can spend your return at the dentist!


Dental Exam and Cleaning

At DHG we have a saying: “The best dental care begins before there’s ever a problem.” Regular dental exams help us solve issues before they become big ones.

Many people have dental insurance covering annual dental cleaning and exam. If you don’t, this may be something you consider with your tax refund! Regular hygiene visits are extremely important for preventative dental care.


Teeth Whitening

Everyone starts out with white teeth, but over time they can easily become discoloured and stained by common foods and beverages like coffee and tea. Teeth whitening will bleach your teeth to remove these stains and enhance their natural colour. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular services we offer and can be done in either the office or your own home.   For a small splurge and the right whitening approach you may have a new smile in no time!


Root Canal

If one of your teeth becomes infected or damaged, root canal therapy may be the perfect solution. In the past, dentists often had to pull infected teeth, leaving unattractive holes in your smile. Now, with root canal therapy, it is much better, and more cost-effective, to shave your existing tooth than to replace it. If you think you have an impacted tooth, or know of any existing issue, it may be a worthwhile way to spend your tax refund to relieve your pain and save your tooth!

Why Get Cosmetic Dentistry?

If you regularly head to your dentist for checkups — you do come in for checkups once a year, right? — you’re already well aware that your dentists and dental hygienists wear many hats. But both can do much more than simply keeping your teeth in working order, whether that means cleaning them, filling cavities or doing major surgery. In fact, the dentists at DHG are seasoned experts when it comes to giving you a smile you won’t be able to stop flashing around to everyone you see. It’s called cosmetic dentistry, and it can truly make a big difference in your life. Let’s take a look at just what cosmetic dentistry is, who it’s for, and why you might want to ask your dentist to put together a plan for you. Read more
