Seasoned. Experienced. There are many softer terms for getting older, but the fact remains: looking at a picture of you years ago, you can’t help but notice the ways your body has aged over that time. Although you may still feel young at heart, these days your body may be looking older than you’d like. Your hair may start turning gray, and wrinkles may develop in your skin, but there’s one crucial feature that can continue to look youthful regardless of your age—your smile! How can your teeth make you look younger? How can you change signs of aging in your smile? Read on to find out!

Signs That Your Smile Is Aging You

Like many other parts of your body, your smile can subtly change over time, often without your being aware of it. These signs include the following:

Yellowing or Discoloration

After years of drinking coffee and eating chocolate, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that your teeth can look stained. Over time, your teeth absorb highly pigmented foods and drinks, making them appear dull or yellow. Just as yellowing cloth looks old, stained teeth can add years to your appearance.

Chips or Cracks

Like you, your smile has been through a lot over the years. Perhaps little cracks or chips don’t seem like a big deal, but they can give your smile a more weathered, older look. More significant damage ages you even further and can even impair your ability to bite or chew foods like you used to.

Cosmetic Treatments That Address Signs of Aging

The idea of turning back the clock can seem impossible, but when it comes to your smile, the process can be quite simple. Here are just some of the possible cosmetic treatments available that can take years off your smile and help you look and feel your best.

Porcelain Crowns

For more damaged or worn teeth, metal-free crowns provide the perfect support while improving your teeth’s appearance drastically.

Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth’s issues are purely cosmetic, your dentist can place veneers, or thin layers of ceramic over the front of your teeth, to recreate your perfect smile.

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes, all it takes to make your smile look younger is to just remove the stains that have built up over the years. The powerful professional whitening solutions greatly outperform whatever you can buy at the store, brightening up to 8 or even 10 shades.

Ultimately, you may not be able to prevent all signs of aging, but your smile can still shine. Through these simple treatments, you can continue to look and feel vivacious, regardless of how “seasoned” you become.
