How to Get a Younger Looking Healthy Smile
Does your smile look old? A smile is one of the most important parts of your face – an attractive smile gives a youthful and healthy appearance. But as we age, even the hardiest and healthiest of natural teeth will show signs of wear and tear.
If you are trouble by your aging teeth, it may be time for a smile makeover. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has many procedures that can work wonders to take years off your smile.
Don’t Let Worn Teeth Age You!
Cosmetic contouring is an economical way to fix teeth that are worn down. The upper teeth are contoured to give the appearance that they are longer than they actually are.
Eliminate Stained and Uneven Teeth!
Bonding the front surfaces of worn teeth can give your smile a more youthful and healthy appearance. A longer lasting solution to correct discolored and worn front teeth are porcelain veneers.
Rebuild Your Bite with a Smile Makeover!
For patients with extensive tooth wear the best improvement is usually obtained with crowns. All-ceramic crowns are the most durable solution to cover staining and straighten or replace worn teeth.
Repositioning Teeth May Be the Best Solution!
For adults with jaw deformities, crowded teeth, large spaces or problems that require moving teeth, orthodontics is increasingly the acceptable solution. You’re never too old for tooth movement.
Replace Your Missing Teeth!
If you have lost teeth due to trauma or periodontal disease, it is possible to replace them with dental implants or dentures. There are many advantages to implants that preserve the bone and outlast bridges. If the tooth loss is extensive, dentures are the best way to replace an attractive smile. It is important that the time between extraction and replacement not be extensive.
Dental procedures and materials have advanced so much over the last several decades that it is entirely possible to restore a much more youthful and healthy look to any mouth.
Remember, healthy teeth make a healthy smile!
