ROSEVILLE, CA, March 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Even if you practice a good at-home dental hygiene routine and visit your dentist at least once every six months for a check-up and professional teeth cleaning, your teeth will eventually begin to show the effects of aging.
These signs may be merely aesthetic in nature, such as discolored teeth, which is a common cosmetic dental problem
that becomes more noticeable with age; they may also be dental health issues, such as severe cavities, that require general dentistry treatment.
Teeth that become increasingly yellow is perhaps the most noticeable dental sign of aging, because it can occur even in those who maintain a healthy diet and take good care of their teeth by brushing at least twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush, followed by flossing at least once a day. If your teeth have become stained, your cosmetic dentist may be able to help you restore a vibrant, healthy looking smile through one of the following treatments:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
Professional teeth whitening can brighten your teeth several shades in a single treatment. During your teeth whitening treatment, you cosmetic dentist will apply a bleaching solution that is stronger than those found in over-the-counter whitening products and provides instant results; because the solution is personally applied by your cosmetic dentist, you are ensured of even dispersal of the whitening agent and a seamless smile.
If you have severely stained teeth, porcelain veneers may be a better option. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom made to fit over your natural teeth to provide you with a bright, appealing smile.
Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct other dental problems that are common with age, such as cracked or chipped teeth and teeth that have become slightly misaligned. Other dental problems that tend to develop with age--including advanced tooth decay and periodontal disease
--can impact your oral health.
Advanced cavities can harm your gums and adjacent teeth if not treated, and they may require endodontic
treatment via a root canal. Gum disease can erode the support for your natural teeth and also necessitates treatment.
