It’s Never Too Late to Improve Your Smile

Age is just a number when it comes to improving your smile—it’s never too late to get the look you want for your teeth! Whether you have specific concerns about your teeth and gums or just want a generally better-looking smile, there are many treatment options available to you.

While not all cosmetic treatments are covered under dental insurance, most dentists offer flexible payment plans so you can get the care you need at an affordable rate. What treatments can help improve your smile based on your specific concerns?

Invisalign

For people who have crooked or slightly misaligned teeth, Invisalign is an excellent option for straightening your teeth that still allows you to retain a professional look while receiving treatment. Invisalign can also fix improper bites, which can cause issues with your appearance in addition to jaw discomfort.

Fortunately, Invisalign can treat many of the cases that traditional braces can treat, and treatment time tends to be shorter than that with regular braces. Working with an Invisalign provider can help you get the straight teeth you want in just a few months’ time!

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin yet strong ceramic replicas of your natural teeth. They’re designed to be placed over your teeth and can correct many issues with your smile [1].

With dental veneers, you can correct:

  • Minor tooth misalignment
  • Deep or stubborn teeth stains
  • Teeth chips and fractures
  • Dental fluorosis (chalky white spots on teeth)
  • Misshapen teeth

Your dentist can discuss dental veneers with you to help determine if this is the right treatment option for you. For many people, veneers offer a gorgeous smile for a dramatic visual boost!

Teeth Whitening

If you have embarrassing stains on your teeth or just want a whiter smile, teeth whitening is considered a safe and effective treatment that can change your smile in just one appointment [2].

A professional teeth whitening can give you the ideal shade of white for your smile in about one hour at your dentist’s office. You don’t need a big event as an excuse to get your teeth whitened—this treatment can remove both surface stains and deeper stains for a truly whiter smile and increased self-confidence!

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cost-effective option for repairing many issues with your smile. In a dental bonding procedure, your dentist will use a composite resin material—the same material used in tooth-colored fillings—to correct problems with your smile.

With dental bonding, you can:

  • Close gaps in your teeth
  • Fill out teeth that are too short
  • Correct misshapen teeth
  • Fix chipped or cracked teeth
  • Restore a single discolored tooth

There are many applications for dental bonding to correct problems with your smile and make a subtle yet noticeable difference in your appearance [3]!
