Cosmetic dentists offer many options for achieving a more youthful smile

Take Years Off Your Appearance with Cosmetic DentistryWrinkles, age spots, gray or white hair, walking with a stoop…these are all common signifiers the brain instantly associates with age when we meet someone. But have you considered the impact that your teeth can have on your perceived age?

If you are searching for that ageless smile to complement your other efforts at looking younger, we have good news. Our skilled cosmetic dentists can tackle all the signs of aging your teeth may be displaying to give you that younger-looking smile. Our work always looks natural, never fake, so you can rest assured you’ll love your new smile.

Here’s how a cosmetic dentist can help:

Teeth Whitening: Over time, teeth can become discolored even if you take excellent care of them and are diligent in avoiding staining behaviors like smoking or drinking dark beverages. This is why yellow teeth are often associated with old age.

Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can help. By lightening your teeth several shades, this cosmetic dental treatment can also take several years—or even a whole decade—off of your appearance. For best results, professional teeth whitening should be supplemented with at-home products recommended by your dentist to prevent re-staining.

Veneers: Some stains may be too dark to be satisfactorily lightened with whitening. Teeth may also become worn on the edges or chipped after a lifetime of use. Either way, the end result will be an impression of age.

We can correct this impression and create a younger look by applying porcelain veneers to cover all the imperfections in your natural teeth. In the hands of an expert cosmetic dentist, you will be sure to get the right shape and shade of veneers to improve your appearance without creating a fake look.

White Fillings: Given that very few patients choose to receive silver amalgam fillings these days due to concerns about mercury content, having silver glinting in your mouth can easily mark you as a member of an older generation.

At California Dental Group, we know how to safely remove these old fillings and replace them with white fillings blended to match the color of you natural teeth.

Tooth Replacement: Since people tend to lose their teeth as they age, a gap in your smile can really pile on the years. If you are missing a lot of teeth, you might even acquire a sunken appearance that will make you look very old indeed.

Fortunately, your cosmetic dentist can provide a long-lasting, attractive solution to missing teeth in the form of dental implants or even implant-supported dentures. Again, the focus is always on achieving a natural look so you look rejuvenated, not fake.
