Choice is a wonderful thing. It can mean the opportunity to look a dozen years younger than your actual age. Which, in this youth-obsessed culture, gives you extra advantages, whether you're thirty-something or a grandparent.
These choices include your teeth. Not just movie stars, but adults in all walks of life, are opting for cosmetic dental care that restore youthful vitality to their skin and faces. You might be surprised by the role fresh "young" teeth play in creating that overall first impression.
Your cosmetic dentist can bring you up to date on the incredible and youth-restoring dental options, like dental crowns and veneers, that are available to you. Options available at a fraction of the cost of risky and invasive surgery such as, say, a face-lift.
Whichever restorative dentistry procedure you agree to, or decline, is your personal choice. For example, suppose you're missing teeth. Maybe the gap doesn't show, and you've lived with it for awhile. Replacement with dental crowns or dental bridges might be recommended. The consequences of living with missing teeth are important, but the choice to replace that missing tooth and get one step closer to a beautiful smile is yours.
Just the same, it's your mouth and your decision. Whenever you have questions about your care, ask your local dentist and together you can do what's right for you.
