Help for Aging Teeth

By Carol | March 11, 2009

Does your mouth give away your age?

When you think about aging, do you worry about your teeth and gums? After all, almost nothing gives away your age as much as ‘old’ looking teeth and receding gums.

Signs of ‘old’ teeth and gums:

  • Teeth that have yellow or brown stains?
  • Teeth that have old discolored fillings?
  • Teeth that have crowns that don’t match the rest of your teeth?
  • Crooked teeth?
  • Teeth that have gaps between your teeth?
  • Short teeth with flat ends.
  • Gums that are shinny and red?
  • Gums that are receding and don’t cover the teeth like they use to?
  • Gums that bleed when you brush them?

At Cross DentalCare we can help you regain your more youthful smile with techniques that restore the natural color and shape of your teeth.

Some techniques can be done in one appointment, such as teeth whitening and tooth contouring to subtract years from your teeth.

Other techniques are available to save your teeth if they are badly broken down.

All porcelain crowns, white fillings, porcelain veneers, composite bonding, and implants are other techniques to give you a younger smile.

Techniques to regain normal gums are available through treatment at Cross Dental and at periodontic specialists.
