I only have about five hundred dollars, but I really want to do something about my teeth. They’re old and have a little chip in the front. What can I do with that kind of money?

You can easily do professional, take home teeth whitening in that price range. To be honest, teeth whitening is one of the easiest (and dramatic) things you can do to brighten up your smile. Having whiter teeth takes years off your appearance.
Depending on the size of the chip on your tooth (and the prices of your dentist), it’s feasible that you can have dental bonding done on the chip on your tooth. Depending on what exactly will need to be done with the tooth, it will generally cost between $100-$600 per tooth.
Be sure you get the tooth whitening done before you do any bonding. That way it will be matched to your new white color.
