Anti-aging Dental Treatments
There are many treatments available today that can improve the cosmetic problems that occur naturally in middle-aged and older patients. Patients desiring a more youthful appearance commonly overlook dental issues such as crooked or discolored teeth, which can add years’ worth of aging to the face. Our middle-aged patients can instantly achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance, simply by improving the aesthetics and restoring the function of the teeth. Our Queens cosmetic dentistry practice offers patients many options in anti-aging dental treatments, including porcelain veneers, Invisalign®, and dental implants. Your unique needs and goals will determine which treatments will be included in your customized anti-aging dental treatment plan.
A Healthy Mouth
The first step in any anti-aging dental treatment is a thorough evaluation of the health and structures of the gums and teeth. Cosmetic treatments can instantly improve the appearance of the teeth, but are not a substitute for proper dental care. During your dental examination, we will look for wear of the teeth, cracks in the teeth, chipped teeth, areas of decay in the teeth, and so on. Our goal is to provide our patients with healthy and beautiful smiles. In order to achieve a more youthful smile, we must first ensure the health of your gums and teeth.
Once placed, porcelain veneers instantly improve the appearance of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, custom-made porcelain shells, bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth to improve the size, shape, color, and length. Patients with chipped teeth, discolored teeth, uneven teeth, spaces between the teeth, and worn teeth may benefit from porcelain veneers.
Invisalign® enables our adult patients to effectively and discreetly treat their orthodontic issues. Many of our adult patients experience embarrassment in regard to their crooked and misaligned teeth, but do not want to draw even more attention to their mouths by wearing metal braces. By utilizing the Invisalign® system, we can correct orthodontic issues inconspicuously. Invisalign® aligners can be removed for up to two hours a day, are not painful to wear, and are virtually undetectable when worn. Correcting alignment issues provides many cosmetic benefits, while also improving the health and function of the teeth. Patients with uncorrected alignment issues are more prone to gum disease and tooth decay. Misaligned teeth affect the health of the gums and teeth and also detract from the aesthetics of the smile.
Dental implants are among the most state-of-the-art dental treatments available today. Dental implants are incredibly strong, durable, and long-lasting. For our patients who are missing one or more teeth in Queens, dental implants may be used to restore the function and strength of their teeth. Dental bridges, porcelain crowns, and dentures may be used to top dental implants, making them an ideal and versatile treatment for our patients experiencing tooth loss.
