3 Ways To Give Your Teeth A More Adult Appearance

Dentist Blog

If you have gaps in your smile, small incisors, or other issues that you feel give your permanent teeth a juvenile appearance, you may feel like your smile doesn't match the rest of your adult face. Here are 3 ways you can improve your teeth with cosmetic dentistry.


Veneers are an excellent way to make your teeth look more adult in appearance. Veneers are porcelain caps placed on your existing teeth to help fill in spaces and to make your smaller teeth larger. Your dentist will scrape off a thin layer of enamel on your affected teeth, then shape porcelain on top of the area to give your teeth greater volume and attractiveness. With proper care, veneers can last up to 10 years or longer, and can give you that adult smile you have always wanted. Talk with a professional, like Milan Simanek, D.D.S. & Associates for more information.

Teeth whitening

Calcium deposits and tooth discoloration are common in younger children and can be caused by more than just cavities. For instance, children who've taken antibiotics or developmental supplements can have permanent evidence on their teeth. These stains can weaken your smile's appeal because they show remnants of juvenile development. However, whitening your teeth can give you a more professional demeanor according to WebMD, since you will be apt to smile more.

Teeth whitening is done in the dentist's office, and the procedure does not take long. A high-powered bleaching agent is placed on your teeth to start the whitening process. The bleaching gel is accelerated by a special light so that you can see your results more quickly than over-the-counter methods.


If your teeth are misaligned, you may look more childlike. In fact, some little-known dental procedures, like Japanese yaeba, actually make teeth crooked so that the patient looks more like a child. However, if you are sick of looking childlike, straightening your teeth can help. Since braces can make you look childlike temporarily, you may want to go with Invisalign options since they can be removed and since they are clear. Lingual braces, or braces that are placed behind your teeth instead of in front where they are visible to others are also another good option for discreetness. Talk to your dentist to see which cosmetic dental procedures will work best for your condition so you can finally have the adult smile you have always wanted.
