How much would you be willing to pay for an aesthetically “perfect smile”?
According to a nationwide survey by dental advice website NextSmileDental.com, North Dakotans would shell out $4,080 for what is also referred to as a “Hollywood smile,” made up of veneers that create the appearance of perfect teeth.
That’s a lot of money — but it’s kind of cheap given, according to the survey, the average price all Americans polled would pay is $5,652.
Floridians would be prepared to pay the most – $9,970 for a set of teeth that are perfect in appearance. At the same time, those in Alaska would be willing to pay just $1,700.
The survey also found 2 in 3 people believe that a good set of teeth reflects a person’s overall physical health.
Also, according to the survey, 44 is the average age at which people say they begin to care less about the cosmetic appearance of their teeth.
