Everyone wants and deserves to feel confident and happy about their appearance. Regardless of your age, if you're ready to make a change, cosmetic dentistry in Vienna, VA offers the solution you need.

Treatments like porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are popular options for improving your smile. But there’s virtually no service in modern dentistry that doesn’t also leave you with a healthier, more attractive smile. 

It’s true that if you’re an older patient, you may have dental problems that are structural as well as cosmetic. Let’s take a look at some of the conditions older adults face and how cosmetic dentistry can help.

Fix Worn or Broken-Down Teeth

Your teeth take a lot of abuse, and while dental enamel is durable, it’s not indestructible. So even if you take care of your teeth, you may notice problems such as:

  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Old broken-down fillings

In all these cases, porcelain dental crowns could be customized to conceal the damage and blend seamlessly with your smile.

However, if you have chipped or broken off part of a tooth, porcelain veneers might also be an option.

Remove Tooth Staining or Discoloration

Certain foods and drinks such as coffee and red wine are notorious for staining your teeth. If you have a lifelong smoking habit, you’ve probably noticed that your teeth have yellow or brown stains.

Professional teeth whitening gets rid of these stains and leaves you with a brighter, more youthful-looking smile. Or, your dentist may recommend dental bonding or porcelain veneers to conceal more severe staining and leave a fresh, clean tooth surface.

Straighten Crooked or Crowded Teeth

Think you’re too old to straighten your crooked teeth? Think again! Short-term adult orthodontics like Invisalign clear braces straighten your teeth faster than metal orthodontics. The clear aligners are also discreet so that most people won’t notice them.
