When most people think of signs of aging, the focus is usually on wrinkles or sagging skin. Many don’t realize the impact aging has on our teeth and gums. Over the years, discoloration, receding gums, and dental work can add up to a smile that doesn’t look as bright and youthful as you’d like.
That’s where the team at Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center comes in. Our providers aren’t just experts in clinical dentistry – we also offer cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry, so your teeth look as great as they feel. If you want to take years off your smile, read on to learn more about the top anti-aging dental treatments.
1. Brighten Your Smile With Professional Teeth Whitening
The stains accumulated from tea, coffee, and red wine often become more noticeable as you age, but professional teeth whitening can turn back the clock. Unlike over-the-counter whitening strips, dentists address the back teeth and the front. Our providers can also adjust the treatment to minimize discomfort if you struggle with sensitivity.
Our practice offers in-office Philips Zoom® whitening to brighten your teeth in a 20-minute treatment. Most patients see their desired results in two to three appointments. We can also take impressions of your teeth to provide customized take-home whitening trays. You’ll typically see pearly whites after about two weeks.
2. Update Old Crowns and Fillings
Dental amalgam is rarer now, but some patients still have silver metal fillings. Metal-backed crowns can also wear down over time, exposing a darker color through the porcelain surface. Updating this dated dental work with composite tooth-colored dental fillings and crowns gives you a more uniform and attractive smile. Our practice uses the cutting-edge ED4 Dentist System to take 3D models of your teeth with laser scanning technology so we can make same-day crowns.
3. Swap Dentures for Dental Implants
Although dentures are beneficial, they don’t help with jawbone preservation. Dental implants offer the longest-lasting solution for missing teeth in modern dentistry. In addition to looking and feeling great, implants stimulate the jawbone like natural teeth. This signals your body to preserve bone density in that area and minimizes drooping of the lower face.
