What Longer Life Expectancy has to do With your Smile
- Posted on: Jun 15 2016
Current statistics demonstrate a notable increase in the lifespan of the average human. While this may relate to greater awareness of healthy diet and exercise habits, we certainly know that there is a correlation between living longer and taking better care of not only health, but appearance as well. The investment that Americans make into looking their best demonstrates this fact.
Your Role in the Appearance of your Smile
Just like you have the upmost power to feel better as you go through life, you also play an integral role in the longevity of oral health. Practicing proper brushing and flossing habits, you can do a lot to prevent potentially painful conditions such as gum disease and tooth decay. These habits can also minimize the development of plaque that affects the brightness of your teeth. So brush and floss, and talk with your dentist about treatments that can maximize your authentic beauty.
How We can Help
Dr. Marshall understands that modern dental care must meet the needs for functional mechanics and for a natural appearance. Her patients can benefit from her personal attention to the enhancement of teeth using the latest treatments.
Teeth whitening. More and more people are realizing the immense value of professional teeth whitening over commercial or DIY methods. Whitening under the supervision of your dentist maximizes results while minimizing risk. As demonstrated in the years of clinical use, home whitening treatments are capable of lifting several shades of discoloration in just a few weeks.
Porcelain veneers. Dental veneers actually developed many years ago. However, early treatments were conducted with composites that diminished the natural characteristics of enamel. Today, dentists like Dr. Marshall create veneers using high-quality porcelain that is both durable and lifelike. Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution to a number of different cosmetic concerns, including gaps and minor shifting or turning.
Restoring structure. Tooth damage was once a precursor to an unnatural smile aesthetic. This is because focus used to be placed primarily on mechanical structure. Today, we are fortunate to have access to quality materials that can withstand the force of biting and chewing while also preserving the natural appearance of teeth.
Your teeth are important to much more than the breakdown of food. We recognize the value of esthetic beauty, and we provide care in the manner that will achieve this.
