As we age, we all want to maintain a healthy lifestyle while keeping our youthful appearance for as long as possible. If you have noticed the look of your face starting to change, you may be considering a mini-facelift or perhaps Botox injections to smooth away a few fine lines. But some aging issues can be remedied through anti-aging dentistry which can be a less-invasive method of helping to improve your appearance.
What Is Anti-Aging Dentistry?
As we age, our faces change and sometimes our teeth influence our appearance more than they ever have before. Whether your teeth are stained and yellow, or your lips have thinned from aging, anti-aging dentistry can restore your appearance. Anti-aging dentistry is typically for cosmetic reasons and is rarely performed for health issues. Cosmetic dentistry is a reliable way for patients to slow down the effects of aging not only for your teeth but for your entire face.
Improving Your Self-Confidence
Aging brings self-confidence in many areas of your life, often including success in your career or personal relationships. One thing aging typically does not bring is a boost of self-confidence in our appearance. This is one of the many reasons why people often turn to plastic surgery as they get older to help restore their youthful looks.
Cosmetic dentistry helps patients to discover the smile they’ve always dreamed of but never had. A brighter and happier smile that improves your self-confidence makes a big difference.
All of our cosmetic dental procedures will help you regain your confidence.
Whitening your teeth is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. Whitening is a quick and painless solution for those with sensitive teeth wishing to whiten in the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way. Not only will whitening your teeth enhance your smile, but it is an affordable way to give your self-confidence a big boost.
If you don’t love your smile because of misshapen, stained, or uneven teeth, you’ve probably spent most of your life trying to hide behind your lips or your hands when you smile or laugh. Discover a smile that inspires pride and motivates you to show it off to the world with a smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are one of the easiest tools Dr. de Jongh can use to give you the smile you’ve always wished you had.
Crowns are a great way to rebuild and strengthen lost or damaged tooth structure. Porcelain crowns can be placed for a variety of reasons including protecting a weak tooth from the wear and tear of normal bite force, restoring a broken tooth, or fixing a tooth that has been severely ground down. Porcelain crowns are a great way to correct your tooth structure in a cosmetic way.
The next best thing to a healthy, natural tooth is a dental implant. An implant is strong, stable, and is held in place by your jaw, making it a long-lasting tooth replacement. Dr. de Jongh is extremely precise in his implant placement technique to ensure your implant fits, feels, looks and functions like a natural tooth.
If you feel self-conscious about your smile, it has probably haunted you most of your life. Crooked, rotated, crowded or widely spaced teeth can all lead to hiding joy and laughter. For many adults, braces are out of the question because of the time commitment and unappealing appearance associated with treatment. Invisalign is specifically recommended for adults seeking orthodontic treatment without having anyone be the wiser.
Turning Back the Hands of Time
Dr. de Jongh is committed to restoring balance within the face for all patients. Taking every facial feature into consideration including face shape, tooth color, tooth size and skin tone helps to determine how the teeth complement or distract from the overall balance of your appearance. Getting your teeth fixed can be more effective than Botox, and can be an alternative to plastic surgery for many patients.
