As we age, our smiles age with us. While many of us consider wrinkles to be the only visual indicator of our age, your teeth can make you look younger or older than you are. However, you don't need to resort to injections, fillers or a facelift to have a more youthful face. Cosmetic dentists in Marco Island can help you achieve flattering results. Let's see how a cosmetic dentist can help you:
Naturally, mature teeth look duller. The dentin, the layer underneath the enamel that primarily makes tooth color, darkens as we age. In addition, the enamel thins over time, revealing the darkening dentin. It’s possible to accelerate this process with staining habits (such as drinking coffee, tea and wine or smoking). Consider professional teeth whitening to dramatically whiten your smile and get rid of those stains in a few visits (or less).
Our teeth provide much-needed structural support for our face, and missing teeth can cause your jaw to sag. Without proper support, nasolabial folds (wrinkles that extend across the mouth and cheeks) can develop, making you look much older than you are. A dentist can help you with dentures or implant placement to restore your smile.
Did you know that veneers are a fantastic way to fix cracked teeth? They can shield your teeth's damaged areas. They typically just cover one or both sides of your teeth, without making them look bulky. By placing them over damaged or worn-out areas, you can upgrade the appearance of your smile. This is a long-lasting solution because, with proper maintenance, most veneers last for more than ten years.
As you can see, cosmetic dentistry can do wonders for your oral health, and here at Island Paradise Dental we can help you with that. If you are ready to look and show off a more youthful smile, consider scheduling an appointment so we can guide you in the procedure that best suits you.
