Simple Cosmetic Techniques to Help Your Smile Age Gracefully

Ageing is a natural part of life, so is the slow but progressive ageing of your teeth, smile and facial features. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some things you can do to look and feel your very best.

Follow these tips from Dr Shehan Warusevitane and his dental team in Ivanhoe, and turn back the clock on ageing.

Regular Professional Cleanings

A big part of maintaining your smile as you age is keeping up with regular dental checkups and professional cleanings. These will help catch any potential issues early, letting you address them before they cause damage or impair your smile.

Teeth Whitening Service

Your teeth are among the first things people notice about you. Make sure your pearly whites are remembered for all the right reasons. Our fast, convenient and affordable teeth whitening services use industry-leading technology and practices to keep your teeth sparkling white all year round.

Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Dental Work – Porcelain Veneers

Minimally invasive, porcelain veneers offer an affordable and effective solution to cover misshapen, broken or misaligned teeth. These thin porcelain veneers cover and adhere to your natural teeth, providing a classically aesthetic look you will be eager to show off.

Porcelain Crowns

An effective solution for those with damaged teeth, porcelain crowns are custom made ‘caps’ (crowns) that are form-fitted and bonded to your damaged tooth (or teeth). This crown effectively restores the look, feel, form and function of the affected tooth.

Lifestyle Changes

The lifestyle we lead has a significant impact on our oral health and the pearly whites in our mouth. Consider making the following changes to improve the health of your teeth, and to keep your smile as youthful and energetic as you feel on the inside. Lifestyle changes Include:

  • Limiting exposure to acidic drinks and foods
  • Eliminating or using a straw when drinking coffee or tea
  • Reducing or eliminating alcohol intake
  • Stopping smoking and the use of tobacco products
  • Eating a healthy well-balanced diet
  • Drinking enough water
