Would you be able to give the lowest cost cosmetic dentistry available? I’ve had to go to free help wherever I can, because of being unemployed. I never thought finances would keep me from being happy, or smiling… but I just don’t have it. I hate my teeth when I look in the mirror. I don’t have insurance. What can I do?

Don’t, please don’t look for the cheapest cosmetic dentistry available. You don’t want that. I can just see you getting this work done and then e-mailing me back in tears wondering how you can undo this work because it looks ugly.
You’d be a great candidate for a Snap-On Smile. This is the very least expensive way to get a new smile. It only lasts about four years, but you could get it to last longer if you only used it when you were out in public.
It’s a simple procedure. The cosmetic dentist takes an impression of your teeth, and then the laboratory makes you a new smile out of a hardened acetyl resin. When you get it back from the lab, you literally snap it into place over your existing teeth. It gives you a beautiful, white smile.
The cost is going to be about $1000 for a full arch of teeth, which is about one-tenth of what porcelain veneers or Lumineers would cost. It would be about half that for just the six front teeth.
