In today’s world, appearance is everything. Whether you’d like to admit it or not, studies have shown time and time again that younger and more beautiful people are often favored in social AND professional settings. In fact, research proves that bright, white, straight, and flawless sets of teeth allow people to perceive you as younger, friendlier, and more successful. So, if you’re looking to knock a few years off of your appearance, it may be time to see your dentist! Keep reading to learn how cosmetic dentistry can deliver you a beautifully youthful appearance.
What Kind of Flaws are Affecting Your Smile?
When you look at your smile in the mirror, what do you see? Are there imperfections like chips, cracks, gaps, and permanent discoloration that take away from your overall beauty? Not only can these flaws be distracting, but they’re actually making you look older than you really are.
Discoloration is a common sign of older age. An unfortunate fact of life is that your teeth will begin to discolor as time passes. While there are steps you can take to maintain white teeth, your smile will eventually grow dull and worn, aging your facial appearance. Thankfully, modern dentistry has brought more options than ever to improve your appearance.
How Can You Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?
There are a handful of services that can not only boost your confidence, but they will also shave years off of your appearance. These include:
The most versatile of cosmetic treatments, porcelain veneers can be used to correct and conceal a wide range of flaws. These thin shells of dental porcelain are custom-made and designed to cover the front surfaces of your smile. Once permanently bonded, they will literally transform your smile, concealing chips, cracks, slight gaps, small misalignment, misshapen teeth, and permanent discoloration. The result is a youthful grin that you will love to show off. Plus, dental porcelain is stain resistant, allowing you to enjoy your white smile for years to come.
A quick and affordable option, cosmetic bonding can erase small chips and imperfections in your smile. This tooth-colored composite resin can be placed, shaped, and polished to mimic the rest of your natural smile. The best part is that your cosmetic dentist only needs one appointment to complete treatment, and it’s more cost-effective than other options.
If you have discoloration or yellowing from routine coffee drinking, wine consumption, or tobacco use, teeth whitening is a great solution! Professional whitening can reach beneath the surfaces of your teeth to remove even the toughest of stains.
Are you ready to give yourself a more youthful appearance? Unfortunately, time machines haven’t been invented yet, but cosmetic dentistry is the next best thing! Contact your dentist to get started.
