Three Cosmetic Dental Procedures That You’re Never Too Old For
February 4, 2023
Cosmetic dentistry is incredibly powerful, capable of addressing just about any long-standing issue you could have with your teeth. Whether your smile’s a little yellow, or there are a few cracks or flaws that you’d want to deal with, your dentist should be able to help you.
Seniors sometimes express concern about cosmetic dentistry, worrying that they may have trouble with the procedure. Thankfully, there’s nothing to be worried about! Cosmetic dentistry is rich in treatments that can benefit people of all ages. Here are a few examples.
As people get older, their teeth naturally start to yellow. If this has been happening to you, teeth whitening could give you a perfectly white, youthful smile! In-office teeth whitening can make your teeth up to eight shades brighter within a single hour!
Many dentists also offer take-home teeth whitening, which is completed over the course of a few weeks. It takes longer, but you can get the same incredible service you would expect from an in-office visit!
If you have chips, cracks, or oral imperfections that need to be patched up, direct bonding can allow your dentist to do that within a single appointment. Using a resin that’s much like what they would use for a dental filling, your dentist can address all kinds of cosmetic imperfections.
If you aren’t a fan of the color of your teeth, your dentist can even layer this resin over them, giving them a much healthier appearance.
Maybe, after years of hard work, your teeth could do with a complete renovation. Your dentist can make use of veneers to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of in as little as two appointments!
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that can be placed over the teeth, giving your dentist the ability to completely change their shape and the color of them.
If you’re interested in having your smile look its best, there’s no reason to let age stop you. These cosmetic treatments can make a massive positive impact on the lives of patients of all ages.
