One of the most effective ways to make your smile look younger is to whiten your teeth. Professional dental whitening gels minimize existing stains, and help to restore your teeth to their previous levels of whiteness. You could, alternatively, choose to cover discolored enamel with some of type of restoration or restorative material—be it veneers or dental bonding.

You also want to make sure that you treat any existing dental damage, like accumulated cracks and chips. This type of restorative treatment is important for aesthetic reasons, and to safeguard the future health of your smile. Our team uses dental bonding, customized crowns, and veneers to make damaged teeth whole again.

Sometimes, smiles appear older because the edges of a patient’s teeth have become blunt and worn. This often occurs due to conditions like bruxism, which is characterized by chronic tooth grinding and clenching. The key to treating this issue is to build up relevant teeth with dental resin or porcelain restorations. This type of treatment can also be useful for treating bite dysfunctions, so as to prevent future damage.

The primary takeaway is that you do not have to continue living with a smile that makes you look and feel older than you are. Our Toluca Lake dentists are here to give you all of the information and support that you need, so contact our office to schedule your personal consultation with our team!
