Who wouldn’t like to look a little younger? People try to keep their youthful looks by working out, eating healthy, and protecting the skin from the damaging effects of the sun, especially here in San Diego. As a cosmetic dentist, I have a few surprising tricks up my sleeve that can instantly take years off a patient’s appearance.
Your smile is one of your most noticeable features. Restoring a more youthful look to your teeth can turn back the clock, in some cases more than cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic dentists offer a range of treatments to fit that goal, including:
- Teeth whitening: No matter how young you look with your mouth closed, stained, yellow teeth will add years. Whitening treatments using bleach gels or light energy can help remove the damage caused by smoking, red wine, or caffeinated beverages.
- New fillings: Are outdated metal fillings revealing your true age? Old, dark fillings in the back of the mouth can be replaced with ones that match your tooth enamel, so when you laugh, no one will notice your dental work.
- Smile makeovers: Whether it’s veneers, gum sculpting, or a combination of techniques, a cosmetic dentist can correct a range of problems that may be aging your appearance. A healthy, beautiful smile can make a person look significantly younger.
If you’re interested in looking as young as you feel on the inside, consider visiting a qualified cosmetic dentist who can make a custom treatment plan just for you.
