How the dentist can help people to look younger

14 July 2022


Here at Woodbury Park Dental, we help our patients to take care of their oral health and we also offer a range of options to help them hold back the years as they get older. Here, we discuss how the dentist in Tunbridge Wells can help patients to look younger and feel confident about their appearance no matter what their age. We investigate treatments such as teeth whitening, dental implants and wrinkle reduction.

Teeth whitening

White bright teeth are often considered the hallmarks of a youthful appearance. Many people mistakenly think that they can get rid of yellowing and stains using products that they purchase in shops or online. However, these are ineffective at best and at worst can cause the erosion of tooth enamel. Enamel is an important substance that helps to preserve the integrity of the teeth.

Teeth whitening provided by the dentist in Tunbridge Wells is safe and very effective. It is a treatment that can brighten the teeth by up to 16 shades, so the result can be quite dramatic. This is especially true for patients who have years of staining from coffee, tea and red wine consumption and those who have a history of smoking.

Dental implants

As the dentist in Tunbridge Wells, we understand how devastating tooth loss can be. It can make a person feel a distinct lack of confidence about their appearance. Dental implants are the modern solution to replacing missing teeth. Rather than simply topping the gaps with dentures, implants take the place of the original tooth roots.

When dentures are worn, there remain gaps where the roots of the teeth used to be. Over time, these gaps within the gums will shrink. This can cause the patient to develop a shrunken appearance which can be very ageing. Implants fill these gaps so that this shrinkage does not happen, and the patient is able to retain the youthful structure of their face.

Teeth that have been replaced using implants are very natural looking. The stable base provided means that it is difficult for others to tell that a person has any artificial teeth, and this helps them to stay looking younger for longer.

Wrinkle reduction

As people age, they often find that they develop lines and wrinkles in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes and in the area around the mouth. If they have had a less than healthy lifestyle, or even just spent a lot of time in the sun, then these lines can cause them to look much older than their years.

Fortunately, there is a solution to these issues that is known as botox. It is a substance that is injected into the problematic areas in order to completely relax the muscles. When the muscles are relaxed, the appearance of lines and wrinkles is greatly reduced, and the patient gains a much more youthful appearance.

This is a treatment that takes only a matter of minutes, but which delivers great results that can help a person to feel significantly more confident about their appearance.
