An Aging Smile Can Still be Beautiful


Cosmetic Dentistry Houston, TXIf we have learned anything by watching history unfold, it is that humans enjoy the beauty. We like to observe art and nature, and we especially like the idea of maintaining personal beauty for as long as we can. The very process of aging has changed significantly over the years precisely because of this desire to look and feel our best. While a lot of the marketing these days is targeting the Millennial generation and even the Gen X’ers, there remains a great deal of interest among Baby Boomers to look good. We think we know why.

What’s in a Number?

Have you looked at Jane Fonda lately? The nearly 80-year-old looks as young as many 50-year-olds, and doesn’t seem to be caught up by the number of candles on her birthday cake. Celebrity status aside, Ms. Fonda is a shining example of what is possible past “retirement age.” She is not alone, either; not by a long shot.

Retirement, for the Baby Boomer generation, is a concept that has become rather blurred. Relatively few men and women hang up their hats for good before the age of 70. In fact, part of the reason that cosmetic procedures are performed in high numbers is that the older generation wants to stay competitive with younger workers alongside whom they are applying and interviewing for jobs.

Another aspect of aging that has changed, or at least is getting more attention, is socialization. More specifically, romantic interaction. There is no “end-date” on when an older adult may stop dating or may lose interest in wanting to feel attractive, for that matter.

It is important to remember that a healthy, radiant smile is what makes a great first impression, regardless of the circumstances in which we meet. Treatments such as porcelain veneers or crowns, dentures, dental implants, and teeth whitening are all beneficial for maintaining an attractive smile.
