Getting older is a part of life, but feeling and looking older is something that we have the power to control (to a certain degree). Age may just be a number, but whatever your number is you should own it and wear it proudly like a badge of honour. Of course this is easier said than done; we live in a society where youth is linked to newness, vibrancy and innovation and aging is essentially perceived as the opposite of those things.
First things first, it is very important to love who you are the way you are. If for whatever reason you aren’t happy however, there are ways to improve yourself and the best place to start is your mouth. Your teeth are very important for eating and are the first things that people see as soon as you open your mouth.
No matter how much you maintain your teeth through regular brushing, flossing, rinsing and visiting your dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups, the amount of wear and tear that your mouth goes through is undeniable. Over time, your teeth will start to show age and may discolour as well. There are many ways in which to whiten and brighten your smile, that range from the simple all the way to a bit more time consuming. However, the more time consuming options tend to offer better and longer lasting results. Some of those options include:
- Dental implants/Veneers
- Tooth whitening services and fluoride applications
Always remember that age is just a state of mind, but that the fountain of youth is at your disposal. Contact your local dentist to find out the best way to improve your smile for a younger and healthier you.
