How to Keep a Fresher, Younger, and Sexier Smile

What Does A Healthy Smile Look Like?

A healthy smile is something that grabs immediate attention. As you get older, fighting some of the symptoms of aging will be an ongoing battle. Instead of buying various cosmetics & other materialistic products that must be applied every day or week, there is another way that you can keep some of these symptoms at bay for years.

It is always suggested to have a routine dental checkup done each quarter or on a half-yearly basis. The procedures are less complex and will make you keep that healthy dental smile and look younger, too. Getting some cosmetic dentistry may give you the best anti-aging secrets that others will want to know about. So, some of the trending healthy Smile dental methods are given below. Could you go through it and choose wisely?  

Ways To Maintain Healthy Smile For A Long Time

There are several methods which may help you to get the best smile on your face. A few of them are listed below. Grab an insight into all of them and pick one of the methods for maintaining a younger smile. 

Teeth Whitening

Other people around you will notice your smile – especially if it is white. However, if it is yellow, it makes you look older, and you may try and hide your teeth. After a point, you may not even be aware of it, but it will make your smile not look natural. 

The best place to get teeth whitening is from a dentist. Instead of only getting one or two shades brighter from kits at the store, dentists can give you whiter teeth by as much as five or six shades in just one appointment. When teeth are made that much lighter, it will make your smile look younger. 

Replace Metal Fillings

Along with teeth whitening, exchanging your metal fillings for white ones would be a good idea. Tooth-colored fillings are nearly invisible and will make your teeth look even better. Metal fillings also make you look older, and if you have had them for some time, it may be a good idea to replace them.

Putting Braces On

If you have had crooked teeth for some time and would like them to look better, the dentist can give you straight teeth – no matter how old you are. Today, even some older movie stars, such as Faye Dunaway at 61, wear traditional braces to correct their teeth.

Adult braces now come in different styles and colors. You can even get them in white, making them almost invisible – except when people are close. Invisalign aligners are another way to get teeth straightened. These removable plastic pieces perform the same job as braces, but they are invisible. Another great benefit is that they let you eat what you want and clean your teeth like you usually do. 

Dental Veneers

When you want great-looking teeth quickly, and a smile to match, getting dental veneers applied to your teeth will give you a Hollywood smile. These porcelain covers for the front of your teeth look natural and will make you look younger. 

If you have got problems with your teeth that you want to hide, this is the way to go. It can cover up teeth that are chipped, discolored, short, misshapen, or even if there is a space between your teeth, it can correct those issues – and a few more. Newer veneer styles require very little or no removal of your tooth enamel. 

Veneers must be developed in a lab, so you will need to make at least two appointments at the dentist’s office. They can be made to match the color of your natural teeth. The life expectancy of veneers is about 15 years or longer with good care. 

Dental Crowns

If the crowns of some of your teeth are damaged or deformed, you can replace them with crowns that are natural tooth color. Various types of crowns are available that will certainly enhance your smile.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth can also be replaced. Dental implants are a great way to replace lost teeth, and you do not need to bother about them coming loose when you talk and eat. Removable versions are also available. 

Dental implants are surgically placed into your gums and can also help prevent the natural drifting of teeth into a space. This will also help keep your teeth aligned, and it will also help preserve your bone under that vacancy. 

Receding Gums

If you have receding gums, this can be corrected with gum surgery. Of course, if you have any gum disease, this problem would need to be treated first. Gum disease can cause you to lose your teeth and may also cause many other potential health problems. Gum grafts can lengthen your gums and shorten the appearance of your teeth, giving you a younger-looking smile. It will offer you the advantage of protecting the roots of your teeth.

How to Retain Your Healthy Smile Longer?

Keeping your smile looking good to fight aging may also require some lifestyle changes. You will need to quit smoking and drinking alcohol – which promotes gum disease and eat a healthy diet – with less sugar.
