For decades, researchers have studied the aesthetic and psychological benefits of a beautiful smile. In addition to starting a ripple effect of positivity, flashing your pearly whites can boost your first impression, improve your self-esteem, and even make you look 10 years younger! But who said these advantages are reserved for a certain age group? A cosmetic dentist is sharing four services that can perfect your smile at any stage of your life!

#1. Clear Braces

Crooked, misaligned teeth can wreak havoc on your self-esteem, but they can also negatively impact your oral health by leaving places for bacteria and plaque to hide. Fortunately, patients today can skip “metal mouth” and opt for virtually undetectable clear braces! Not only are they safe and effective, but they don’t require extensive food restrictions or disrupt your oral hygiene regimen. Plus, they deliver results in an average of only 12 months!

#2. Teeth Whitening

White teeth make others perceive you as healthier and more attractive, but did you know it can also make you look a decade younger? Fortunately, a professional teeth whitening treatment can help you remove stubborn stains and unpleasant discoloration from coffee, poor oral habits, or certain medications. In fact, you can safely lighten your teeth up to eight shades in just one treatment!

#3. Porcelain Veneers

If you have a multitude of cosmetic issues that you would like fixed, like misaligned, chipped, and stained teeth, then it is time to talk to your dentist about porcelain veneers. Not only can they provide you with a jaw-dropping, durable smile, but they can also fix a multitude of cosmetic issues in one treatment! Porcelain veneers are also stain and cavity resistant, which significantly boosts their longevity.

#4. Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is an effective treatment option that few patients are aware of. However, it can be completed in as little as one visit and can fix minor aesthetic issues, like a small gap or chip that detracts from your smile. Plus, they are a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers and don’t require the enamel to be removed!

If imperfections in your smile are negatively impacting your self-esteem, it’s important to know that you are not too old for cosmetic dentistry. By scheduling your initial consultation, you’ll be one step closer to achieving your dream smile!
