Cosmetic Dentistry | The Fountain of Youth?
When we think of “turning back the clock,” we’ll usually think of a plastic surgery office – not a dental office, right? And, while teeth whitening and veneers won’t have the same effect as say, a facelift, many patients find that a smile makeover can make them look significantly younger. More importantly, it can often make them feel younger as well. Want to find out what other patients are choosing?
Here is our list of the Top 3 Procedures for Achieving a More Youthful-Looking Smile:
- Teeth Whitening: It’s no secret that whiter teeth are more beautiful teeth. But, did you ever consider that whiter teeth could make you look healthier – and maybe even younger? Teeth can become stained for all sorts of reasons – drinking coffee, smoking, eating certain foods. Thankfully, Cosmetic Teeth Whitening can often help. During the procedure, a strong peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. This essentially “lifts away” stains to achieve a whiter, brighter, healthier-looking smile. We also use a special light to speed up and enhance your results. Although a simple procedure, teeth whitening can often have dramatic results.
- Porcelain Veneers: As we age, our smile can inevitably become less than perfect. For many, this means teeth that are chipped, pitted and permanently discolored. Porcelain Veneers can often be the answer. Veneers – also known as porcelain laminates – are thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom-made and bonded to the fronts of the teeth. Because they’re so thin, veneers only require us to remove a small amount of natural tooth material. And, as one of the most important recent developments in dentistry, veneers can often achieve a flawless, more youthful-looking smile.
- Dental Implants: There’s nothing that says “old” more than a tooth that’s missing. And, beyond being unsightly, a missing tooth can cause other complications down the line. Often, the healthiest option is to replace it with a dental implant. Simply put, Dental Implants act as artificial tooth roots, the part of your tooth that lies under the gum. Because implants are placed directly into the bone, they act as a rock-solid foundation to a beautiful replacement tooth. And, since implants are so sturdy, many patients find afterward that they can chew, speak and brush with the utmost of ease.
