Cosmetic Dentistry for Seniors
It’s no secret that a glowing smile is desirable at any age. With regular trips to your family dentist you can keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime. It’s never too late to improve the look of your smile. There are many options for seniors to restore their smile to a youthful radiance.

Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures for Seniors
1. Dental Veneers – These ‘tooth caps’ are an innovation used to restore the color and shape of teeth. They can help to fill unsightly gaps, cover cracks, or darkened teeth. With veneers, porcelain is custom cast to fit your smile. Most veneers are thin, quick, and easy to install, and last considerably longer than any traditional teeth whitening procedure. In fact, well looked after veneers could last 10 to 15 years.
2. Dental Implants – These are more permanent replacement teeth that look and function as your natural teeth. While not everyone will qualify for implants, as long as a senior is in reasonable health, this may be an option. Oral surgery is involved where a titanium implant is attached to the jawbone. Dental Implants can provide easier chewing ability and a natural-looking smile. Talk with your dentist to find out if you qualify for this restorative procedure.
3. Whitening Teeth – Whitening is a quick and inexpensive way to improve the appearance of stained of discolored teeth. Whitening chemicals can be applied in your dentists’ office or prepared for you to take home and used over a series of several nights.
