How Do You Restore A Youthful Luster To Teeth?

Have you ever taken a long, hard look at the white teeth that make stars look so glamorous and realized that there's a youthful sheen to it? As people age, teeth tend to lose this lustrous quality and become duller and flatter looking. Even when teeth of this quality look clean and white, they don't have the same presence as healthy and pearlescent teeth. The good news is, you can get this sheen once again, so keep reading to learn how.

Tooth Whitening

One of the things people often look to when their teeth look dull is tooth whitening. Unfortunately, this won't help you very much.

While tooth whitening—at home or in the dentist's office—do a good job of making teeth look bright and white, the process can't restore a youthful luster. That luster is lost when tooth enamel weakens and breaks down with age. This process can be sped up by poor dental hygiene, so even if you're not particularly old, it's possible that you've already lost it, and tooth whitening can't bring it back.


Thankfully, a dentist can help you to get the shine back all the same, with no whitening required. The reason people of all ages in Hollywood have that perfect smile is because many of them rely on veneers.

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are shaped, sized, and molded to look perfectly like a real tooth. Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is just attached to the front of your tooth. This way, you can continue to use and keep your real teeth while getting the appearance you want.

Porcelain has that natural pearlescent quality to it, so if that's what you want to get back, veneers are the best choice for you.


There's some planning that goes into veneers. After you decide that you want them, you and your dentist will discuss the color, shade, and shape of your veneers. This is just to ensure that you're getting exactly what you want, so if you have pictures that you want to look like, feel free to bring them in.

Veneers are quite easy to have put on. Your dentist won't have to drill your teeth or use any metal parts for the veneers. Instead, the veneer is simply attached with dentist-grade adhesive. It's the same time of adhesive that are used for other dental appliances, so you can rest easy knowing that it's staying put.

Dental veneers are the best solution for bringing back a luster to teeth without damaging your real teeth. Say goodbye to unimpressive tooth whitening products and get veneers to have the teeth you want for years to come. Talk to your dentist today about restorative dentistry procedures.
