Dental Tips for Looking Younger
Our teeth come in naturally white. Unfortunately, over time, they absorb stains from various substances, such as tobacco and soda. If they sit soaking in these substances for too long, these stains can darken, which dulls your smile and can add years to your age. Dr. Frame, our cosmetic dentist, offers anti-aging dentistry that can turn back the hands of time and give you a more youthful look. There are some things you can do at home, as well, to keep your smile looking and feeling young.
1. Brush and floss every day.
Good dental practices can be your best defense against cavities and gum disease, but they can also help protect against other issues that can age your smile, including minor stains and plaque buildup. For the best results, use a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste when brushing two times a day. Flossing or cleaning between teeth with an interdental cleaner should be done at least once a day.
2. Schedule a regular checkup every six months.
Routine exams play an important role in keeping your smile healthy and young. We check for early symptoms of dental diseases that could affect your teeth and gums, as well as suggest ways to keep aging at bay.
3. Consider orthodontics or other cosmetic treatments.
Straight teeth are less likely to succumb to dental disease or suffer from injuries, but they are also usually considered more attractive than misaligned teeth. Other cosmetic treatments include dental bonding, teeth whitening and ceramic veneers.
