Whether you didn’t hit the genetic jackpot or your teeth are showing signs of aging, it’s never too late to invest in a better smile. There’s no age limit for cosmetic dentistry. Here are just a few options that can turn back the clock to revamp your pearly whites.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a thin shell that’s bonded to the front side of the tooth, instantly improving its color, size, and shape. When applied to the teeth visible when smiling, veneers can correct several issues using one minimally invasive procedure. 

Besides treating discoloration, chips, or gaps, veneers can also be a great solution if you have a history of tooth sensitivity because they provide an added layer of protection.


It’s not unusual for teeth to shift a little over the years. Whether you missed your chance for braces as a teen or your teeth have moved, you can invest in a straight smile without brackets and wires. 

Invisalign uses clear aligners worn over your teeth to move them discreetly. In as few as 12 months, you can have a straight, healthy smile.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Metal crowns and fillings instantly show your age because restorations are made to look natural. Resin or all-ceramic materials are used for fillings, crowns, bridges, and other restorations to blend in with your smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

A cosmetic resin is shaded to match the color of your enamel to fix a variety of minor imperfections, like decay, chips, cracks, or exposed tooth roots. It offers a lot of bang for your buck because it provides both restorative and cosmetic benefits. It can last for many years with the right care.

Teeth Whitening

Age-related and surface stains can be improved by up to 8 shades using a professional whitening treatment. The highly concentrated whitening agents penetrate your enamel to dissolve stubborn stains. You can take years off of your appearance in about an hour.

Smile Makeover

If you are embarrassed by many imperfections, you can give your smile a complete makeover. Your cosmetic dentist will choose procedures that cater to your specific needs. You’ll enjoy natural-looking results that can last.

An attractive smile is attributed to youth, confidence, and success. There’s no age limit to boost your self-esteem by turning the smile of your dreams into reality.
