Women and men are never too old to consider cosmetic dentistry to improve their appearance.
If you look at the celebrity magazines that dominate High Street stores, then you may think that every famous person out there has had some sort of cosmetic surgery. From Jordan and her changing boob size to speculation about which older celebs have had face lifts, the gutter press seems obsessed with stars going under the knife. This obsession has lead to an increase in enquiries from “normal” people about cosmetic procedures, including cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the easiest procedures to undergo. After all, most are superficial changes, involving no actual surgery. While it may have been mainly younger men and women asking about treatments like braces, veneers and tooth whitening in the past, a greater proportion of older people are starting to see the benefits of cosmetic dentistry.
In India, dentists are even reporting that children are bringing their older parents in for treatment to help them find a new partner! As the workplace gets younger and younger, older execs are feeling the pressure to keep up a young and energetic appearance. What better way to do that than with a quick tooth whitening session or a set of smiling bright veneers?
There’s no reason why patients of any age can’t undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures, although individual practitioners will have to take each case on merit and look into any potential health problems. Having cosmetic dentistry when you’re older can even help improve the appearance of your face and lower jaw, without having to go under the knife. Though, if you want to give Mother Nature a helping hand, a lot of dental surgeries are also offering Botox injections, so they can fix up your wrinkles while they fix up your teeth, to give you the dazzling smile – even better than the one you had in your twenties!
If you are thinking about undergoing any type of cosmetic dentistry, you should arrange a consultation with a dentist first before making any decision. Talk to them about what you want the procedure to achieve and they will be able to recommend what is the right treatment for you.
