According to CNBC, the average tax refund in 2023 is about $2,753. Whether yours is significantly more or a bit less, you might be wondering what to do with this “bonus” cash. While your initial thought may be to spend it on a lavish purchase or use it toward an upcoming vacation, the best choice for your oral health, overall well-being, confidence, and wallet may be investing it in dental care. To learn why you should invest your tax refund in your smile, read on!

Reason #1: Keep Your Smile Healthy

While roughly 90% of Americans have had a cavity by their 21st birthday, about 50% of adults have gum disease. Although these statistics are staggering, it’s important to remember that oral health concerns like these are largely preventable with the right best practices in place, like visiting your dentist every six months for a dental checkup and cleaning. If your dental insurance doesn’t cover the entire cost or you are uninsured and need to pay for preventive care out-of-pocket, then use your tax refund to cover it. Remember, these biannual visits play a crucial role in maintaining your oral and overall health!

Reason #2: Manage the Cost of Essential Restorative Care

If your dentist finds a small cavity, loose restoration, warning signs of gum disease, or something similar during your dental exam, it’s important not to postpone your care. Decay and infections cannot heal on their own. On the contrary, they can progress rapidly if left untreated. So, use your tax refund to cover the cost of essential restorative care like tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and root canals. Although it may not be the most fun way to use your tax refund, it can dramatically improve your quality of life, save you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on more extensive treatments down the line, and help protect you from experiencing a sudden dental emergency.

Reason #3: Improve the Look of Your Smile (& Your Confidence!)

Are you unhappy with your smile due to a chipped, crooked, misshapen, or discolored tooth? Maybe you’re struggling with multiple dental imperfections that make it hard to smile confidently. Why not use your tax refund to improve the look of your smile?
