How Aging Affects the Smile

Aging affects overall oral health. Anti-aging dentistry restores the appearance of discolored, eroded, and grinding teeth and improves a person’s facial shape. Here are ways that a smile changes during the aging process:

  • Teeth loss
  • Yellow/discolored teeth
  • Less saliva production leads to dental issues
  • Receding gums
  • Teeth shift
  • Teeth wear down, chip
  • Teeth shorten, affecting the position of the jaw
  • Less bone mass
  • Thinned lips

Aging causes the jaw to lose its fullness leading to a sunken, slimmer face giving the appearance of advanced aging. The ability to chew is also affected by the changes in the jaw’s position leading to discomfort or pain.

How Anti-aging Dentistry Makes a Person Look Younger

Restoring the functionality and look of a patient’s smile is achieved by repairing damaged teeth to get rid of pain and discomfort during drinking and eating. Anti-aging dentistry uses cosmetic dental procedures to restore facial balance. This is achieved by enhancing the appearance of the face and teeth in a natural-looking way without any downtime.

Anti-aging dentistry treatment may provide solutions for the following issues:

  • Replacing old veneers or crowns
  • Short teeth
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joints) pain, jaw pain, or clicking jaws
  • Prominent lower teeth when talking
  • Wear and grinding of teeth
  • Grumpy look or expression caused by worn out teeth and a bad bite
  • Discolored teeth
  • Facial wrinkles on the mouth area
  • Unusually small chin due to wrong bite position

Anti-aging dentistry procedures to combat aging

Teeth Whitening
This is the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure. It is popular because it is painless, cost-effective, easy, and suitable for patients with sensitive teeth. Teeth whitening improves the aesthetics of a person’s smile and boosts confidence since a person doesn’t feel embarrassed by stained or yellow teeth when smiling.

Veneers
Veneers are thin covers or shells adhered to the front surface of teeth to improve the shape, size, and color of teeth. Veneers also close tooth gaps, improve the outline of the lips, cover cracked teeth, eliminate hollowness, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. They transform smiles without making teeth look unnatural.

Dental Implants
Dental Implants serve as roots to replace missing teeth. They provide a robust and secure foundation for permanent or removable teeth customized to look like natural teeth. They are surgically placed in the jaw bone, providing a long-lasting solution for teeth replacement. Dental implants give back that lost smile and boost a person’s self-esteem.

Crowns
Crowns come in handy when a significant amount of the tooth is decayed or damaged and come in different types. The tooth-shaped cap provides dental solutions for conditions like tooth decay, discolored, sensitive, or misshapen teeth. Some patients get crowns for aesthetic purposes to attain a beautiful smile.

Composite Bonding
They are also known as cosmetic bonding. A procedure whereby a dentist applies layers of tooth-colored composite resin to change the shape, size, and color of teeth or for cosmetic purposes. It remedies cracked, chipped, gaps, discolored teeth, and thinning lip tissues. Composite bonding is done at an affordable cost with no downtime.

Dentures and Partials
Dentures are removable artificial replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They also enhance chewing and speaking. Missing teeth contribute to sagging cheeks and interfere with smiling and the integrity of the jaw bone. With dentures, one can restore their smile’s health and function, speak better, keep surrounding teeth in their place and improve confidence.

Anti-aging dental procedures address various dental problems and reverse the aging process of teeth and bites, making patients feel comfortable, confident, and youthful-looking. Oral hygiene and gum health go a long way in maintaining healthy teeth as a person ages. It also prevents tooth decay and gum disease and minimizes the risk of medical complications like heart disease.
