Use Your Tax Refund to Invest in a Healthier Smile!

At this time of year, many people are looking forward to receiving their annual tax return. You might even already have yours in your bank account. Of course, there are probably dozens of things that you could spend your money on, such as a nice vacation, some upgrades to your home, or repaying some old debts. But have you thought about using your tax return to invest in a healthier smile? Here are some reasons why you should do so:

Your Oral Health Is Important

Poor oral health is associated with a number of systemic conditions, including heart attack, stroke, dementia, and more. Plus, badly damaged teeth and gums can interfere with your daily quality of life. When you spend your tax refund on dental care, you can correct existing problems and prevent new problems, setting yourself up for improved overall health and wellness.

Dental Insurance Does Not Cover Everything

If you have dental insurance, it probably completely covers the cost of routine exams and cleanings. However, it may only cover 50 – 80% of the cost of restorative services, such as fillings, crowns, and tooth replacement. Your plan might even have an annual maximum that limits how much your insurance company will pay. Your out-of-pocket obligation for some procedures could amount to thousands of dollars! Your tax refund can take away the financial stress of such treatments.

Delaying Treatments Is Unwise

Perhaps you already know that your teeth or gums require some restorative care, but you have been postponing treatment due to concerns about cost. While that is understandable, you are actually working against yourself financially. Dental problems tend to get worse over time, so the longer you delay care, the more expensive your treatment is likely to become. Your tax refund can help you get the procedures you need right now and allow you to save money in the long run.

A Healthy, Attractive Smile Can Help You in the Workplace

Did you know that millions upon millions of productive hours are lost each year due to dental problems? A toothache could distract you from work, and unplanned oral procedures could take you out of the office for days at a time. Getting the care you need could help you to continue to perform optimally in the workplace.

But what if your smile is healthy, but it does not look the way you want it to? Investing in cosmetic treatments could increase your confidence and help you make a powerful impression at work. It might even help you progress to the next level in your career!

Deciding how to use your tax refund can be a difficult choice, but you are unlikely to regret investing in your smile! Visit your dentist to learn how they could help you enjoy improved health and wellness.
