My smile isn't as attractive as it used to be. What can I do?

As we age, so do our smiles. An aging smile is characterized by shorter, darker, uneven teeth. Spaces and gaps may form as the front teeth get shorter. An aging smile also effects our facial profile. The mid-face region may appear collapsed, with the chin appearing to close to the nose. Dark, vertical crack lines may also appear in the front teeth.
What can be done about this? Modern dentistry has much to offer for treatment of the aging smile. Sometimes, simply bleaching the front teeth is all that is required to restore a more youthful smile. If bleaching does not adequately restore the smile, porcelain veneers may be recommended. Porcelain veneers require minimal tooth reduction, and provide spectacular aesthetic results. If the front teeth are severely fractured, or have large fillings, full porcelain crowns may be necessary to achieve a beautiful smile. A more youthful smile can be achieved in almost any case.
