Did you know? When we are young, our smile shows more of our top teeth than bottom teeth and as we age, we show more lower teeth when we smile.
WHY: As we age we lose collagen in our lips. Our lips get thinner, gravity of the lips takes over and our upper lip sags to cover our upper teeth while our lower lip sags to reveal our lower teeth.
SOLUTION: Sometimes a deep bite can be corrected using dental restorations. This non-invasive method, referred to as Neuromuscular Dentistry is sometimes referred to as an "instant facelift".
Did you know? As we age our teeth get more yellow.
WHY: Elements like wine, tea, coffee, juices and other pigmented foods contribute to staining and over time our teeth absorb more and more of the color from these external forces.
SOLUTION: Regular brushing with a whitening toothpaste (we recommend Supersmile), especially after consuming pigmented foods. Occasional in-office teeth whitening to brighten up those pearly whites!
Did you know? As we age, our teeth loose translucency and our smile becomes more opaque.
WHY: The mineral structure of the teeth changes and our teeth become less porous.
SOLUTION: Veneers. Today's technology and advances in dentistry allow for a natural looking smile even with porcelain veneers. A combination of the right materials, an advanced lab and a skilled cosmetic dentist can give you a beautiful, natural-looking, younger and healthier smile.
Did you know? As we age we lose the natural small ridges at the bottom of our teeth and they take on a dull appearance.
WHY: Biting, chewing and in most cases, grinding contribute to the disappearance of these natural ridges.
SOLUTION: Getting to the root of the grinding problem by doing a full bite evaluation. Ask about a neuromuscular evaluation at your next hygiene appointment.
