Anti-aging Dental Treatments
By Andrew Mortensen, DDS on February 15, 2013
There are plenty of things that you can do to ensure that you look and feel your youngest. Exercise, eating right, staying hydrated, and protecting your skin from the sun are all great ideas. But have you considered taking care of your teeth as well? You might be surprised just how much older your smile can make you look. It's for this reason that many people visit with a skilled Fountain Valley cosmetic dentist in order to undergo age-defying dental care treatments.
Dental Problems and Signs of Aging
As we age, the wear and tear shows on different parts of our body, especially the teeth. Tooth damage, tooth discoloration, tooth decay, tooth loss, and problems with the gums can all develop over time. You can actually look much older than you are simply because you have an unhealthy smile.
Smile Makeovers and Full Mouth Reconstructions
Using the latest in cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry treatments, a cosmetic dentist in Fountain Valley can turn back time on your smile through smile makeover and full mouth reconstruction therapies. Both of these options emphasize dental health and dental aesthetics, meaning that you'll get a health smile that looks great as well. Below are just a few ways that we can make you look younger through effective dental care.
Fixing Tooth Decay and Tooth Damage
Chips, cracks, and tooth decay can all do a real number on your smile over time. In order to address decay, Fountain Valley dental fillings, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns can all be helpful. As for aesthetic damage to the smile, such as chips and cracks, tooth bonding and porcelain veneers may be just what you need.
Whitening Smiles That are Stained and Discolored
Coffee, tea, cigarettes, wine, and many other substances can gradually turn a bright and brilliant smile into something tarnished and yellow. For dental stains, teeth whitening is often the best option to consider. Professional dental bleaching is far more effective than the over-the-counter products you can get at the store. Severe discoloration can be masked through dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
Solutions for Missing Teeth
Tooth loss is a sure sign of advanced age, and the loss of multiple teeth can have a drastic effect on your appearance, especially around the cheeks and lips. For major tooth loss, dental bridges and dentures can be a great option to consider. Dental implants can be used to anchor these in place for stability comparable to natural tooth roots.
Improving the Health of Your Gums
Gum recession not only exposes more of the tooth root than it should, but it can also lead to bad tooth decay under the gumline, tooth loss, and other serious health issues. We have a number of gum grafting and augmentation treatments that can help restore your gumline and leave your smile looking healthy and as good as new.
