Cosmetic dentistry is not just for young people! More and more seniors are getting cosmetic dental procedures, for a very simple reason: looking good is something people of all ages want!
Perhaps the biggest reason seniors are benefitting from cosmetic dentistry is improved confidence. Seniors are more active and social than ever, and many are empowered to be more outgoing through the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Procedures like veneers, implants, and whitening can help you be more confident no matter what age you are!
Veneers are essentially caps placed on a single tooth to restore their appearance. Whether your tooth is cracked, discolored, or has another cosmetic issue, a veneer can make it look good as new. Veneers are very durable and can last 10-15 years when properly taken care of.
Dental implants are a tooth replacement option, whereby the implants are permanently affixed to your jaw with your natural teeth. These implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and help provide more normal chewing and tooth function. They are often preferred to regular dentures because they act and feel like normal teeth.
Teeth whitening is a great way for seniors to enhance their smiles. By applying a whitening gel, teeth can be lightened by several shades. People with discolored teeth are benefitting from whitening every day! There are even two types of whitening: professional teeth whitening at your dentist’s office, and in-home kits that you can apply yourself.
