How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Aid Seniors?

There are numberous ways in which cosmetic dentistry treatments can turn back the clock.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the single most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure among people age 50 and up is teeth whitening. Sure, over-the-counter teeth whitening options abound, but only a teeth whitening kit from a professional dentist will match the exact shade and pallor of your teeth.

But no matter the age or the condition of your teeth, barring extenuating overall health issues, cosmetic dentistry is an option for you. Some of the signs that you may benefit from a cosmetic dentistry treatment include:

  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Chronic gum disease
  • Missing or cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Frequent headaches, grinding, clinching or other TMJ symptoms

Besides the fact that cosmetic dentistry provided various smile-improvement options for seniors, patients who visit The Smile Centre also benefit from the Advanced Dental Technology and Practice pioneered by the Las Vegas Institute, which underscores comfort and often favors a conservative approach to treatment, which means we avoid unnecessary treatments.

Our Central Florida cosmetic dentists also recognize that seniors have distinct concerns when it comes to caring for their teeth, gums and jaw. According to industry research, here are the top issues of concern to seniors when it comes to cosmetic dentistry:

  • Financing. Many seniors are on fixed incomes. But we believe that no one, regardless of budget, should suffer from a less-than satisfactory smile. This is reflected in The Smile Centre's payment options.
  • Comfort. Many seniors have had previous dental work that needs to be maintained or updated to avoid irritation or discomfort.
  • Dry Mouth. Specific medications and diseases diminish your saliva, which can exacerbate gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath.
  • Receding Gums. Especially when other medical conditions are present, gum disease can become more severe more quickly.
  • Worn Down or Stained Teeth. Cosmetic dentistry offers the best solutions for addressing these common retirement dental challenges.
