3 Ways to Slow Down Aging with Dental Care

They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but at Dobson Ranch Dental Care, we believe smiles reflect self-worth. Taking care of your teeth is just as important as taking care of your body and mind. As we age, our teeth can discolor, chip, and wear down. It’s also not uncommon for teeth to go missing or for some seniors to require root canals. With all of this damage, your smile can really affect your appearance and make you look older than your age. If you’re ready to slow down the aging process, here are five ways we can achieve that through cosmetic dentistry options and regular dental care.

3 Ways to Slow Down Aging with Dental Care

1. Teeth Whitening Remove Years of Stains

Living a long full life means you’ve probably enjoyed a lot of food and beverages along the way. You likely enjoy that cup of coffee every morning as well. However, those years of eating and drinking can discolor teeth, leaving you with a yellow or dull smile. That’s why so many of our patients love our teeth whitening services. Not only does teeth whitening remove years of stains, but it can also make you look ten years younger. Our teeth whitening process is specially formulated, and we take all of your health conditions into consideration. So, if you’re looking for a way to restore your confidence, then this is a great route for you.

2. Straighten Things Out

Invisalign trays aren’t just for the younger ones; they can be for seniors as well. If you’ve spent your entire life living with crooked teeth, then it’s time to get them fixed. Crooked teeth can make you look 10-15 years older than what you really are. Therefore, straight teeth not only improve your overall oral health but they can also make you confident and want to show off your smile. With straight teeth, you can prevent gum disease, cavities, and even TMJ or bruxism, all while looking and feeling younger. 

3. Upgrade Metal Restorations

Did you know those silver fillings can make you look ten years older? Metal fillings were popular at the time, but today, they’re not used as often. They can make teeth look dark and dull, and are certainly noticeable when you smile or laugh. Today, we use resin, porcelain, ceramic, or glass ionomer to create fillings. We can even use these same materials to make crowns, bridges, and complete denture sets that provide you with a natural-looking smile. This route is a great way to slow down aging and has helped many seniors find value in their dental care once again.
