Turn back the hands of time with a smile rejuvenation
Since the word rejuvenate literally means to make young again, it’s easy to see where the term smile rejuvenation came from; a series of cosmetic dental treatments that, together, can help to restore a more youthful appearance to a smile that has aged over time.
While saying “the ravages of time” may be a little over the top, a smile does age. Things like:
• everyday wear and tear
• eating or drinking things that stain
• some medications
• acid erosion
• gum disease
• subconscious habits like jaw clenching or teeth grinding
• an injury
• can take their toll in terms of the appearance and health of your teeth and gums.
What exactly is a smile rejuvenation?
Think of it as a “smile makeover”. No different than other types of makeovers, a smile rejuvenation can correct problems that have developed over time, as well as change aspects of your smile that may never have liked.
Cosmetic dental treatments such as:
• dental crowns
• dental veneers
• dental bonding
• tooth reshaping
• gum rejuvenation
• dental implants
• teeth whitening
Cosmetic dentistry can help you regain the smile of your youth or get the smile you have always wanted.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art”. While we doubt she was talking about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, there is a connection. Taking steps to keep your teeth and gums healthy is an important component of aging gracefully.
Problems such as:
• older aesthetic dental restorations that have aged poorly
• dark lines along your gum lines
• chipped or broken restorations or ones that are not very natural looking
• can make you look older than you feel.
Everyday wear and tear can leave your teeth:
• chipped, cracked, broken or missing
• worn down
Or you may simple have never liked your smile due to issues such as teeth that are:
• congenitally deformed
As dental technology has advanced, so have today’s dental treatments. In fact, these days there isn’t much we dentists can’t help you with in terms of the look and health of your teeth.
