As we age, the edges of the front teeth wear until these teeth are about the same length as the others. At the same time, the upper and lower lips lose muscle tone. The upper lip may sag, covering more of the upper teeth. The lower lip may also drop, allowing more of the lower teeth to show. These conditions create an older smile line. In many cases, treatment consists of making the upper teeth longer. Your dentist may shorten the lower teeth with cosmetic contouring while lengthening the upper teeth through bonding, laminating, or crowning. If the back teeth are worn and need crown- ing, your dentist can make the new crowns slightly longer provided there is sufficient space in front to lengthen the upper teeth.
If worn and discolored filling are ageing your smile but your teeth don’t need crowning, consider replacing your old fillings with tooth-colored composite fillings or with porcelain inlays or on lays. The easiest and best way to see how cosmetic dentistry can make your sanface appear more youthful is through computer imaging.
