The latest hot topic in the field of Cosmetic Dentistry is Anti-aging dentistry. The question is…should it be? The troubling part about connecting even the best cosmetic dentistry with any anti-aging benefit is that for most part the change is not significant.
If we define cosmetic dentistry as smile dentistry then the most common treatment is veneers. The value of getting veneers is really only realized when you smile. The overall shape and proportions of your face will not change. The support for your skin and the appearance of your wrinkles will not improve. Without smiling, the overall appearance of your face will not look even one day younger than it did before you got the veneers.
Anti-Aging Benefits of Bite Correction
So why are people talking about the anti-aging benefits of cosmetic dentistry if we have just discovered that veneers fall short? The reason is that there is a dental treatment out there that is transforming faces and profiles to restore a more youthful appearance. The treatment is called Face Lift Dentistry® and it combines the cutting edge developments in bite and jaw positioning with cosmetic dentistry to take years off of your face. The anti-aging benefits are real and there is no need to smile to reap the benefits.
Anti-Aging Benefits with Bite and Jaw Positioning
In short, you will never look younger unless your bite and jaw position is technically that of a younger person. It really is as simple as that! Creating a bite and jaw position that restores or even surpasses the one that you had 20 years ago is the core of the Face Lift Dentistry® procedure. See, when we are young, our facial shape and the support for our soft tissue especially around our mouth and jawline is significantly better. Then as we age the bite and jaw position that we once had erodes away making us look old. It happens to every single one of us so you are no exception.
There is no amount of plastic surgery and fillers that will hide an eroded facial shape and jaw position. This is why you may see someone that has clearly had a good facelift but there is something still off. While the plastic surgeon has improved the appearance of their skin, the proportions of their face are still that of an old person. There is no hiding from a bite and jaw position that is eroded but you can choose to correct the problem quite easily.
Regardless of whether you have already had plastic surgery, fillers, or cosmetic dentistry and veneers, do not worry because you can still complete your look with the Face Lift Dentistry® treatment. The procedure is quick and easy and the best part is that all of the results are achieved without surgery and without and grinding on your healthy teeth. Your entire face and profile will instantly look years younger whether you are smiling or not. The anti-aging benefits of the Face Lift Dentistry® treatment are unprecedented and it is never too soon to start looking younger.
