There is no way to escape aging, but you can combat it in effective ways. And altering the look of your teeth may just be one of the most impactful methods of turning back the clock. A smile makeover is revolutionary for how it makes you look, feel, and behave.
Here are just three of the most beloved modern dental innovations that will improve you smile, restore the quality and foundation of your oral health, and make you look younger than ever:
Teeth Whitening
If you want the biggest bang for your buck, teeth whitening is it. You don’t have to have perfect teeth to brighten up your smile. And you don’t need oodles of time to wait for this smile transformation. A professional teeth-whitening treatment, which can take place in about an hour, can make your tooth enamel up to seven times whiter than it is now. Your surface stains will be gone. Say buh-bye to the remains of your tea or coffee habit, your love of red wine, your devotion to dark berries and dark sauces, or your one-time nicotine addiction. Teeth whitening makes even imperfect smiles look flawless.
Crooked teeth simply make you look like someone who didn’t have the inclination as a teenager to pay attention to your teeth and get them straightened. Maybe you got left behind in the adolescent metal mouth game, or perhaps your family couldn’t afford the treatment. But now you’re a grown-up, and you’re ready to invest in your well-being in ways you never could before. Invisalign makes it possible for you to straighten your smile in an undercover way. Go on about your work, social life, and personal life without worrying that people are judging you for what’s on your teeth.
The practically invisible aligners mean you can straighten your teeth on the down-low and, over the course of about a year, get a brand new smile that makes you look years younger. One of the biggest reasons why? You’ll be smiling so much people will wonder where you found the fountain of youth. Plus, aligning your teeth will also help protect your smile as the years go on. Your bite will be in alignment and you’ll be less likely to accidentally chip or break a tooth while chewing, and you are less likely to suffer from TMJ or other jaw issues.
Porcelain Veneers
When you find yourself truly struggling with a host of oral health problems, it is far easier to go with a cosmetic dentistry solution that solves all of your concerns at once. Porcelain veneers not only give you a white, natural-looking, stunning smile that is complementary to your mouth, face shape, and skin tone, they repair all that ails ya. Broken, missing, gapped, crooked, stained, or cracked teeth can all have new life again without extraction or serious repair.
Porcelain veneers are contact lens-thin “covers” for your teeth that are customized to look completely natural and transform your smile into a thing of beauty. If you want to look younger, invest in a new smile created with porcelain veneers. Better yet, find out if you’re a candidate for prepless veneers, one of the quickest ways to get a durable, long-lasting smile makeover that isn’t invasive.
The fountain of youth just may be in your dentist’s office. Make an appointment with Dr. John Moore at Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio to find out what smile makeover options are available and appropriate for your oral health needs.
