There comes a time when whitening teeth is like putting a fresh coat of paint on a house with a flimsy foundation. “Tooth shifting is more aging than discoloration, because it can alter the shape of your face,” says Michael Apa, a New York City dentist who specializes in cosmetic procedures. It’s common for teeth to begin shifting in the 30s, and many people will notice “crowding of the lower front teeth,” says Apa. Plus, years of grinding can wear away at the molars, which combined with the loss of facial fat, can cause the cheeks to hollow out in the 50s. While you can’t stop the teeth from shifting, a night guard will help maintain the integrity of your molars. Alternatively, a cosmetic dentist can add ceramic crowns or porcelain veneers to the back molars. Alternatively, a cosmetic dentist can add ceramic crowns or porcelain veneers to the back molars. (Invisalign will straighten the teeth, but only a night guard will keep them in place.) Treating the gums is just as crucial. Flossing twice a day and using an electric toothbrush will keep bacteria out and prevent gums from receding.
