You Can Change the Signs of Aging by Changing Your Facial Proportions

Do You Often Find Yourself Thinking “I Look Older Than My Age”?

If you’ve been struggling with the signs of facial aging, a dentist is likely the last place you’d look to solve your problems. But cosmetic dentistry may be the solution you’ve been overlooking.

How a Non-surgical Facelift Works

A non-surgical facelift restores the youthful proportions of your face by rebuilding your teeth to their original size and shape using crowns and veneers. If you’ve lost some teeth, dental implants can be used. If most of your teeth are missing or damaged, Fountain of Youth® Dentures may be used.

Since your skin and teeth develop together, ensuring that your teeth are the correct size and shape can help correct the signs of facial aging. These signs of facial aging are linked to the way your face contracts when your teeth are worn, broken, or missing:

  • Nasolabial folds (parentheses lines around your mouth)
  • Thin lips
  • “Lipstick lines” (wrinkles that radiate from your mouth)
  • Receding chin
  • Jowls
  • Turkey neck
  • Double chin
  • Folds between your lips and chin

Non-Surgical Facelifts are Safe and Effective

There are three main factors that cause the visible signs of facial aging:

  • Loss of skin and other tissue elasticity
  • Gravity pulling down on tissues
  • Loss of volume in fat, teeth, and bones

The relationship between these three factors is complex. Changes related to age and environmental damage cause your skin and other tissues to lose elasticity, which cause them to preserve folds and wrinkles. They are unable to hold themselves against the force of gravity, which causes them to fold and sag downward.

Meanwhile, wear on your teeth and loss of bone support in your jaw causes your jaw to move upward and gives your skin the appearance of sagging even more.

Before you try surgery, consider a non-surgical facelift.

Your final results will be visible in about a month and if you take any time off work, it may only be an afternoon, but many patients are fine to go back to work right after the procedure.
