Wine gets better with age, but most things don’t have it that easy as time passes. Fortunately, your teeth don’t have to give in to the aging process.

Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of ways for your smile to look younger than it did 20 years ago. If only everything in life came with the option to turn back the clock.

Keep reading to learn about how age can wear on your smile, as well as your cosmetic dentistry treatment options in Longmont.

What Are Effects of Aging on Your Teeth?

Some signs of aging in your smile are natural, while others are induced:

  • Darkened or yellow teeth: The underlying tooth layer thickens as people age, causing this change
  • Dingy teeth: Drinking certain beverages and/or tobacco smoke speed up this change
  • Crooked teeth: Gum tissue develops problems and when gums recede, teeth no longer remain in their original positions
  • Worn-down teeth: Chewing and grinding wears away enamel and structure of teeth
  • Fragile teeth: Your teeth become more brittle, leading to cracks, chips, and shearing

What Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments Can Spruce Up Your Smile?

Your dentist offers a variety of options with different benefits to suit your smile needs:

  • Teeth Whitening: In-office teeth whitening only takes about 20 minutes or you can go with a convenient professional take-home whitening kit that can deliver optimal results in about two weeks.
  • Dental Bonding: If you have teeth that are chipped, broken or severely discolored, this is a fast, cost-effective solution to restore your smile. The same material used to fill cavities is sculpted and adhered to your existing enamel. This is also a treatment for gapped teeth.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: As opposed to metal compounds to craft fillings and crowns of the past, natural-looking materials like zirconia and porcelain are utilized that are gentler on your teeth and gums. They’ll seamlessly blend in with your smile without causing discoloration or sensitivity.
  • Porcelain Veneers: This comprehensive treatment can address virtually all imperfections. Handcrafted composite and porcelain veneers look so realistic that nobody will know you’ve had any work done. They fit over the visible surface of your teeth and can last more than 25 years with proper maintenance.
