Franz Kafka once said, “Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” He describes youth in the spiritual sense. How you view the world is how you feel. The same principle can be applied to yourself. If you want to feel young, you need to look young. Cosmetic dentistry can help.

If you want to learn the secrets of de-aging with cosmetic dentistry, continue reading.

1. Teeth Whitening

As you age, your tooth enamel naturally thins. This can cause your teeth to appear more yellow over time. If you have a lot of staining on your teeth that are making you look older, teeth whitening treatments can help.

Your dentist will apply a whitening agent powered by hydrogen peroxide to the surface of your teeth and activate it with a special light. This process can remove years of staining in just one hour! Of course, if you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, kits are available to do just that.

2. Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that old people have crooked and chipped teeth. While this certainly doesn’t always track with reality, the appearance of misaligned or broken teeth adds significant age to your appearance.

With cosmetic dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin is shaped and bonded to your pearly whites, restoring both form and function.

3. Dental Veneers

If you have several dental imperfections that need to be treated all at once, dental veneers are the answer. Veneers are hard ceramic shells that are adhered to the front of your teeth.

Not only can they improve the appearance of your teeth, but they can also provide a subtle lift to your lips and cheeks. This can give your face a fuller, softer appearance associated with youth.

4. Cosmetic Gum Sculpting

Excess gum tissue can surround teeth and make them appear small. This “gummy smile” can also falsly give the impression that you’re wearing dentures which are mostly associated with older people.

With cosmetic gum sculpting, your dentist uses a soft tissue laser to painlessly remove extra gum tissue and sculpt out a more aesthetic smile.

Cosmetic dentistry can help you maintain the appearance of youth, boosting your confidence and your happiness. If you’re looking for the secret to turning back the clock on your appearance, perhaps it’s time to explore your options with your dentist!
