It’s natural for the aging process to change you as the years go by, but no one is stopping you from making a change in the other direction. Through the wonders of cosmetic dentistry, you can turn back the clock on your smile with better-looking teeth than you had in your twenties.

Your cosmetic dentist in South Burlington has a variety of options for you to look younger, and it’s just a matter of deciding what is the best fit for you. Keep reading to learn some of the ways aging affects your teeth and ways your dentist can help you overcome Father Time.

What Are Some Common Dental Issues as You Get Older?

You are much more likely to face oral health concerns as a mature adult. Some of them include:

  • Staining: When you drink pigmented beverages like coffee and red wine, your teeth begin to show evidence of it. Tobacco use also causes stains.
  • Discoloration: Your enamel erodes over time, which exposes more of the yellow dentin underneath.
  • Crooked Teeth: Your teeth can gradually shift, especially if you have oral health issues like receding gums. It causes teeth to lose the structure that was holding them in place.
  • Worn Teeth: Eating several times each day for decades eventually adds up to wear down your enamel.
  • Fragile Teeth: They become more brittle over time, making you more prone to suffering chips and cracks.

 What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do to Help Me Look Younger?

You don’t have to accept that your teeth are aging. Your dentist has a lot of options for you to choose from to meet your smile goals including:

  • Invisalign: Clear plastic aligner trays gently shift your teeth in the most discreet and comfortable way possible. Often gets results in half the time of traditional orthodontics.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Extremely thin ceramic shells, which fit directly over the front of teeth, can eliminate a wide variety of smile imperfections. Veneers can offer a minor improvement all the way to a complete smile makeover.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: If one of your front teeth becomes damaged or decayed, it can be repaired with a natural appearance that will even make it difficult for you to see your dental work. Dental porcelain can be shaped and shaded to completely mimic natural enamel.
  • Direct Bonding: Correct a small flaw in just one hour. Your dentist applies a naturally colored composite resin and sculpts your tooth to perfection during this painless procedure.
  • Teeth Whitening: Choose from in-office treatment or a take-home kit to brighten your smile by up to eight shades in a small amount of time. Get better results than with store-bought kits plus less sensitivity.
  • Gum Recontouring: In one appointment, a soft-tissue laser painlessly evens out your gum line to make your smile look symmetrical and your teeth appear longer.
  • BOTOX: Not only can these injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face, they can also help relax the muscles and joints that operate your jaw.

With modern technology, you simply don’t have to look your age. During a consultation with your dentist, you can discuss your smile goals and they can give you appropriate options to choose from. Smile in the face of aging and look younger with cosmetic dentistry!
