When we think about anti-aging treatments and reversing the unwanted signs of aging, we often consider our skin the most. While wrinkles and sagging are undoubtedly a concern for the aging adult, there are other parts of your body that may show your age. Did you know that your smile ages too? At Dental Care Acworth, we have a full menu of restorative and cosmetic dental services that can help you reclaim the smile of your youth.
What Happens to Your Smile as You Get Older
Like your joints and skin, time can take its toll on your teeth and gums. While the natural aging process certainly comes into play, your smile can also be impacted by your lifestyle and oral habits over time. Whether you have stained teeth from years of coffee and cigarettes or missing teeth due to neglected hygiene, your habits will impact how your teeth appear, and your smile may even make you look much older than you really are.
Common dental concerns that present themselves as you age include the following:
- Gum recession
- Tooth damage
- Yellowed/stained enamel
- Missing teeth
- Dry Mouth
The Natural Dental Aging Process
We can’t stop getting older. As you age, your gum tissue will naturally recede and expose the soft root tissues of your teeth. In addition, the enamel layer of your teeth may wear thin, which reveals more of the yellowed dentin layer of your teeth. Lastly, the natural wear and tear of your teeth can threaten the function and aesthetics of your smile.
Treatments that Can Reverse Your Aging Smile
Regardless of whether your unattractive teeth can be blamed on the natural aging process or your personal habits, there are ways to bring back a youthful smile now. At Dental Care Acworth, we believe every patient deserves a confident and beautiful smile at every stage of life.
