You’re Never Too Old to Have a Smile You Love
Much like the rest of your body, your teeth change as you get older. They can weaken with natural wear and tear, making them more susceptible to damage and cavities. Good dental hygiene — brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and getting regular dental cleanings — is always important for a healthy smile, but sometimes your teeth might need a little extra care.
Even when you’re older, you can still get a beautiful smile you love. Maybe you’ve lost teeth due to decay or injury, your teeth have shifted, or they’re stained from years of enjoying tea and coffee. Gone are the days when ill-fitting dentures were your only option to repair your smile.
Today, you can straighten, repair, or replace teeth with more comfortable, natural-looking options. Roberto Palmieri, DMD, sees patients of all ages at Palmieri Dentistry, working to give you your best smile throughout your life.
Invisalign®️ to straighten
Crooked teeth can leave you feeling embarrassed or even disrupt your bite, making it more difficult to chew. Whether you had braces in your younger years or not, Invisalign®️ gives you the opportunity to straighten your smile without the hassle of traditional metal braces.
The Invisalign system uses a series of removable plastic trays to gradually correct the alignment of your teeth. Each set of aligners is customized for your mouth, and you change the sets about every two weeks. You can have a straighter smile in as little as 18 months.
Invisalign is a convenient way to straighten your teeth. The aligners are clear, and most people never know that you’re even wearing them. You can take them out when you need to, making it a great option for busy adults.
Veneers to perfect
Dental veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain or resin attached to the fronts of your teeth to whiten or conceal damage. Veneers can give you a beautiful smile in just a few office visits. Dr. Palmieri recommends veneers to patients of all ages who have:
- Gapped teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Small teeth
- Severely stained teeth
Veneers dramatically improve your smile, and customization ensures the best and most natural-looking fit. Veneers only require a small amount of local anesthesia, and the procedure is typically painless.
Dental implants to replace
If you have broken or missing teeth, dental implants are a modern way to restore your normal mouth function. More natural-looking and effective than traditional dental bridges or dentures, dental implants look just like regular teeth on top of a titanium post that bonds permanently to your jawbone.
Implants can replace missing teeth anywhere in your mouth, improving your ability to chew and talk. They’re designed to match the texture and color of your natural teeth to perfectly fill out your smile.
No matter your age, you deserve a smile that you love to show off. Dr. Palmieri proudly offers dental services from regular cleanings to restorative dentistry to help you look your best at any age. To make an appointment, call our office at or book one online with our convenient scheduling tool.
