Whiten up your pearly whites. Teeth appear stained and yellow through the years. This is due to the acidic degradation of the enamel surface. Bleaching is one of the best ways to reverse this phenomenon. Use of over the counter bleaching kits is only advisable for those who have healthy and unrestored teeth and gums. Ask your dentist for a suitable bleaching process if you have sensitive gums and teeth or if you have caps, crowns, fillings or veneers.
Improve your gums. Receding gums are caused by poor dental practices. For example, aggressive teeth brushing can reduce the collagen in your gums, causing the gums to recede. You can undergo gum graft to restore the appearance of your gums. To prevent gum recession, use an electric tooth brush or simply hold your toothbrush with your fingertips to avoid too much pressure on your gums.
Replace old dental restoration. Do you have metal crowns or silver fillings? Consider replacing them with newer fillings which are made from resin or porcelain and have the same color as your teeth. Old amalgams reveal the era you had your dental restorations done.
Consider dermal fillers for your lips. Your lips deflate as you get older. Plump up your lips with dermal fillers which contain hyaluronic acid. This substance binds with your body's own moisture to restore lost fullness to the lips.
Ask your dentist about an anti-wrinkle treatment. Most dentists are knowledgeable of facial anatomy and aesthetics. They know what to do to reshape your smile by angling teeth back to their original location, realigning turned teeth and administering anti-wrinkle injections.
