As you age, so do your teeth. The foods we eat and the liquids we drink can leave their marks on our teeth, depositing stains and leaving teeth discolored. Smoking discolors teeth extremely quickly, and leaves teeth yellow and brown.
Your natural teeth have outer layers of strong, white enamel, and inner layers of yellow dentin. With age, our enamel thins, revealing more and more of the yellow dentin layer. Whether we intend to or not, when our teeth are discolored, we’re adding years to our age. Natural teeth also wear down with age. Shorter teeth can look ground down and imply years of use.
Maybe you’ve wanted to change your smile for a while, or maybe there’s a special occasion on your calendar. Class reunions, weddings and graduations can be reasons for sprucing up your smile. Even first dates and job interviews can make you want to look your best.
Cosmetic dentistry can have you looking youthful again by restoring your whiter, brighter smile. Perhaps professional whitening can complete your treatment. Composite resin bonding or dental veneers are ways to even the shape of your teeth, possibly even extending them to be longer. Dental implants can take the place of missing teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth may be corrected through orthodontia to make your smile red-carpet ready.
