While dental care today has advanced a great deal, some older adults may have initially missed out on the latest procedures. Those who have lost or damaged teeth have many more options today for improving their smile than in the past.
Some who go in for cosmetic dentistry opt for porcelain veneers - thin porcelain coatings to the teeth. These help make teeth look whiter and a person's smile brighter.
The Reading Eagle recently reported on one woman who tried a new cosmetic device called a snap-on smile.
Margaret Gehring can simply click a new set of teeth into place and the device gives her a straight smile, masking gaps and imperfections and the equipment is molded according to her own mouth shape.
The American Dental Association also advises that adults try invisible or traditional metal braces if they want to straighten their teeth. An even smile can help some people to feel more confident, while straightening teeth can help improve a bad bite, alleviate jaw pain and also help prevent tooth decay or gum disease.
