Many older patients are thrilled to discover that the aging effects on their smile can be corrected by their dentist. Your smile can be restored and enhanced with several anti-aging cosmetic dentistry options. From a brighter, whiter smile to the addition of Botox injections, anti-aging dentistry can make you appear years younger quickly.
Below are some simple procedures that can restore and enhance your confidence in your aging smile.
How Does Aging Affect Your Smile?
The aging process often causes the jaw and bones of the face to lose some of their fullness. This aging leads to your face appearing slimmer and cheeks sunken. This sunken appearance will have dark spots appearing on both sides of your smile. Teeth can also become shorter as we age most frequently due to general wear and grinding of teeth.
Aging also affects your smile by changing the facial features around your mouth. Wrinkles can cause your smile to appear uneven and not as full as it once did. Your face and smile will also become distorted and uneven as the lips begin to sag and you develop discolored teeth.

on how old people think you are!
Restoring Function Of Your Smile And Dental Health
Your teeth can become damaged over time from tooth decay and trauma. Restoring these issues is the first step towards restoring a functional smile. Whether you have tooth decay, chips, missing teeth, discolored teeth, or other dental problems, cosmetic dentist Marielaina Perrone DDS can help. By repairing teeth damaged by trauma or tooth decay, we can restore the esthetics and function of your smile. Once these issues are corrected, you can begin to enhance your smile with cosmetic dentistry.
Improved Facial Esthetics
Enhancing your smile is about far more than just having a whiter smile. Facial features, including your lips, cheeks, and facial structure, are vital to the appearance of your smile. Your cosmetic dentist is one of the best medical professionals to administer cosmetic injectables, such as Botox and Juvederm dermal fillers.
Your Entire Body Benefits From A Healthy Smile
Maintaining good oral and dental hygiene not only keeps your teeth healthy by preventing tooth decay and periodontal disease, but it can also keep your teeth healthy as you get older. Maintaining a healthy smile can also help your body ward off systemic diseases, decreasing your risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, over 90% of all systemic diseases first produce oral signs and symptoms.
What is anti-aging dentistry?
Ways your smile changes as you age:
- Recession Of Gum Tissues
- Yellowing or Discolored Teeth
- Loss Of Teeth
- Shifting Of Teeth
- Wearing Down Of Teeth
- Replacement Needed Of Older Dental Restorations
- Loss Of Bone Mass
- Less salivary production Equals Increase In Dental Issues
Your teeth are the foundation for your face. When your smile foundation begins to break down, it creates an effect on the rest of your face. This will include lips sagging, the appearance of fine lines, and a sunk-in look.
How do these anti-aging dentistry treatments change your face?
Many patients’ teeth will shorten as they age from years of teeth grinding and wear. By changing the dimensions of your smile, you can:
- Say goodbye to a sagged or double chin
- Lift your cheeks
- Eliminate that hollow appearance
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve fullness of your lips
Another issue for some patients with aging is losing teeth due to tooth decay or periodontal disease. Replacing missing teeth will aid in:
- Preserving the bone structure that supports your face
- Restore the health and function of your smile
- Maintain your surrounding teeth in the proper place
- Boost your self-confidence to smile more (smiling is a sign of youth)
How can dentistry make you look younger?
Anti-aging dentistry utilizes cosmetic dental procedures to alter how your teeth support your facial structure and give you a younger-looking smile.
Consider anti-aging dentistry a non-surgical facelift with long-lasting cosmetic results!
Anti Aging Dentistry – Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment
Dentistry Can Reverse The Signs Of Aging
Cosmetic dentistry can restore and enhance just about any smile. These treatments can transform an ordinary smile into an extraordinary one. All while making you look younger.
Main Anti Aging Dentistry Treatment Includes:
Dental Veneers are ultrathin porcelain customized to fit the front of your teeth. If you are unhappy with your teeth’ size, shape, or overall esthetic appearance, veneers can be a great way to transform your smile. With porcelain veneers, your dentist can use a smile design to create a symmetrical youthful-looking smile.
The next best thing to a natural tooth is a dental implant. An implant is stable, secure, and integrates with your bone. This makes it a long-lasting tooth replacement. Marielaina Perrone DDS uses an exacting implant placement technique to ensure your new dental implants fit, feel, look, and function like a natural tooth.
Botox cosmetic can soften and remove wrinkles around the mouth and face to bring a more youthful appearance. A Botox-certified, trained dentist like Marielaina Perrone DDS can enhance your features for a youthful look.
When botox is applied correctly, your dentist should customize it for each person’s face. The botox injector must consider the facial muscles used the most, a person’s job, facial features, and personal desires of the patient.
“Great Botox” requires training, experience, steady hands, listening to and acknowledging patient’s needs, the eye of an artist, and the innate ability to understand proper facial balance.
The bottom line is, Botox treatment is not a one size fits all cosmetic procedure. The right botox injector can create a marvelously natural look that makes you more refreshed and relaxed looking. The ultimate Botox application is minimal or reduced wrinkles, but with maximum movement!
Whitening your teeth is the #1 cosmetic dentistry procedure. Whitening is a quick solution for those wishing to whiten in the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way.
