Cosmetic Dentistry for the 30 Something Category

Cosmetic dentistry is something that many people in their 30’s have thought about. The idea of composite dental fillings, bonding, porcelain veneers, tooth whitening, and dental implants is highly desirable for people in the 30 something category. Cosmetic dentistry has fast become part of the dental treatment plan for people in their thirties.  Here are some of the common reasons why.

Wear and Tear

By now, you may have some wear and tear on your teeth. You may have experienced tooth trauma and have fractured or chipped one or more of your teeth. Bonding can repair chipped, uneven and cracked teeth.

Old Dental Fillings

Tooth restorations have typically aged and require replacement by the 30’s. Composite fillings offer a natural tooth like color and remove the disenchanting appearance of silver from your mouth.

Dull Tooth Color

As you age, you may experience tooth enamel loss. This combined with years of taking in foods and drinks that stain may make your teeth appear duller. If you are a smoker, you may have yellow or brown stains on your teeth. If your mother used tetracycline while pregnant with you, you may have gray or greenish stains on your teeth. Tooth whitening can alleviate such strains.

Dental Conditions

Dental conditions are more likely to surface in the thirties. Gingivitis or periodontal disease may affect your oral health and place you at risk for tooth decay, tooth loss, gum recession and bad breath. Procedures such as root planing and scaling as well as at home periodontal and biofilm treatments help to manage gingivitis and periodontal disease. The ill effects from teeth grinding may also be evident in the thirties. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can repair the tooth damage caused by dental conditions such as gingivitis and teeth grinding.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures are indeed popular for people in the 30 something category. The advantages are numerous. In fact, cosmetic dentistry procedures don’t take long to complete. Usually, these procedures can be completed in one to two visits. A Smile Makeover may require more time. The benefits of cosmetic dentistry may last from ten to fifteen years or a lifetime.
