Often, older individuals see their dentist for repair and maintenance work after years of wear, but avoid asking about potential cosmetic work that could improve their smile. Imagining the end result of fixing an imperfection that has been a part of your smile for years is difficult, but there is no age limit to beautifying your smile and boosting your confidence.
Confidence is equally important no matter what age and one way to ensure a positive self-image is to finally have the cosmetic changes that you want done to your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is safe for all patients, no matter what their age or need. Older patients typically need work done to repair and fortify teeth, both for health reasons and for visual satisfaction, so tacking on a cosmetic procedure is relatively easy and makes them ideal candidates to have work done.
Just because you have ignored the imperfection in your smile for years or decades doesn’t mean that the problem isn’t easily fixable. Dentists see patients in all stages of life, so quite often the procedure is more common than one may think.
