Some of us would do almost anything in the name of youth and beauty. We try various injections, lotions, and supplements, even drinks to reduce the appearance of fine lines in the face. Add to that, there now facial exercises such as yoga that people are doing to help restore their youthful appearance.
Others consider evasive plastic surgeries to get the job done; however, most people would rather make subtle changes vs changing too much of their appearance at once.
Most people don’t realize that the alignment of your teeth could contour your face, and even help reduce wrinkles. Cosmetic dentistry opens up additional options for low-risk aging methods performed by what some dentists refer too as anti-wrinkle dentistry.
For example, imagine having a heavily forward or crowded set of upper teeth. The upper forward inclination gives the appearance of a protruding mouth, which consequently makes the nasolabial folds appear more profound and more prominent. The more apparent the nasolabial folds are; the older you look. A protruding mouth also tends to draw your chin backwards and downplay high cheekbones. This is why some cosmetic dentists have patients wear braces to push the upper set inwards.
Eliminate Wrinkles with LipLift and DentaLift
At Arthur Glosman DDS, in Beverly Hills, we have been practicing cosmetic and restorative dentistry for a significant number of years. My approach does not only focus on fixing your teeth but also considers the entire symmetry of your face to provide a comprehensive plan. Many of my clients were very happy when I created the treatment I call the: Glosman LipLift and Glosman DentaLift.
The Glosman LipLift procedure works by restoring facial proportions, particularly the bottom third of the face while the upper lip starts to thin as we age due to the loss of collagen and fats. As this happens, it may leave a dent or a wrinkled spot above the upper lip, making you appear older. So by making use of the upper set of teeth to support the lips, it makes the lips look plump again. The magic lies in the proper positioning and cushioning.
Then there’s also the Glosman DentaLift, which is suitable for those who have a collapsed bite. Reasons for collapsed of closed bites can include teeth loss, injury, or heavy grinding (parafunction). Regardless of which, the vertical dimension may be decreased, causing the upper teeth to fall back. This condition can alter your jawline and even your cheeks. With my procedure, your teeth will be restored to their normal position while reducing lip wrinkles. Depending on the problem areas, the process may require implants, or veneers to correct any gaps.
Procedure and Results
The results of cosmetic dental procedures are typically less risky than traditional plastic surgery. Preferably, you should look for a dentist who has specialized in this form of treatment and with many years of experience. Client testimonials would also tell you how competent the dentist is.
The dentist should also provide a careful analysis before the conduct of operation (if there is a need) or before the start of treatment. The tests include a bite analysis, facial x-ray, study models, photographs taken at different angles, and – a visual inspection where they divide the face into portions to serve as his guide in harmonizing the symmetry of the face.
If you still have questions about cosmetic dentistry outcomes, do a little research online. You are looking at before and after pictures of patients who sought help from cosmetic dentists can increase your motivation. The study will also help you size up your chosen dentists, whether he genuinely has skills and artistry. Sometimes, a dentist may be technically skilled, but not conscious of aesthetics. The result would be a canned procedure for all his patients, which are a big no, no.
A cosmetic dentist must know how to customize dental treatments to suit individual facial symmetry. At Dr. Glosman DDS, individual differences in facial structure and dental needs are always taken into consideration. For more information, please contact us to visit our contact us.
