Rejuvenate your smile with face lift dentistry
Anti-aging dentistry has revolutionized the pursuit of beauty and youth as a less-invasive, practical alternative to plastic surgery. It is a very effective method for treating signs of aging, improving oral health, and achieving an overall more youthful appearance. While services like Botox, plastic surgery, and fillers allow us to smooth wrinkles and maintain our skin, they can cause discomfort and bruising, and they do not address the causes of aging. As pioneers in the area of face lift dentistry, we have developed Smile Designs that can completely transform a patient’s face.
As we age, we lose collagen and elasticity from our skin. This results in a more hollow look, as well as wrinkling around the mouth and lips. By building-out the sides of the back teeth, we can minimize lip wrinkles while making the surrounding area appear fuller. This also corrects the dark, negative space seen in the back corners of the mouth when you smile, broadening and whitening the smile.
Another way anti aging dentistry transforms the face is by adjust the bite. The bottom third of the face, including the teeth and jaw, provides support and acts as a foundation for the rest of your facial features. Over time, this support begins to collapse. Our facelift dentistry techniques allow us to readjust a patient’s bite without orthodontics, increasing daily comfort and addressing concerns like teeth grinding and jaw tension. The teeth then better support the upper lip, lifting the cheekbones and returning fullness to the face.
Years of natural use can result in teeth that are chipped and ground down indicating age. The term “middle aged mouth” refers to the aesthetic of a smile with mismatched restorations (old crowns, bondings, or veneers). For a more youthful appearance, veneers used to lengthen teeth. The longer teeth actually push out the lower lip, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Lastly, the shade of the teeth is carefully crafted for a natural, more youthful look that brings back balance and harmony to the patient’s face.
