Wrinkles, a few extra pounds, gray hair – middle age creeps up on you seemingly without warning and it certainly isn’t fun. But the side effect of aging that may truly be vexing you is your broken-down smile.

As you age, it’s common for your teeth to yellow, old fillings to wear out, molars to break, and bad breath to hang on a little too long. An unattractive smile can put a dent in your confidence and make you feel… well… old. The good news: There is an easy solution that can make you look and feel years younger.

Porcelain Veneers for Your Smile

You have to admit that a flashy little sports car kind of screams mid-life crisis. Invest in something that will last longer, require less maintenance, and truly make you look better: a smile makeover.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular choices for revamping your middle-aged smile. When you’re embarrassed by stained, chipped, or discolored teeth, porcelain veneers are a natural-looking, long-lasting, permanent, cosmetic dentistry repair.

There is also a pain-free alternative to porcelain veneers – the ultra-thin lumineers, also known as nanoveneers, are cemented over the front of your teeth to change their look and shape.

A New Smile in No Time

You may have been told by a dentist that veneers could mean weeks, months, or even years of return visits. This is simply untrue: Your smile makeover need only take two visits. Unlike the loss of muscle definition or skin elasticity or your waistline that naturally comes with age, your smile is one physical characteristic that you can improve quickly and without a struggle.

If the years have done a number on your smile, there’s no time like the present to gift yourself with a new grin.
