How Can a Smile Lift Make You Look Younger?
Aging is a natural part of life for both men and women, but that doesn’t mean it’s always pleasant. If you are concerned about losing your youthful looks, then you are not alone. Thankfully, you can knock years off your appearance without going under the knife or getting a face lift. A Smile Lift from Dr. Guy Lewis is an excellent way to restore beauty and functionality to your smile.
Many factors make our smiles look older as we age. Teeth become dull and dark as they age. Thinning enamel develops fine cracks, which can stain over time. Thinning lips cover teeth, resulting in a toothless visage. Additionally, missing teeth or windows in your smile make your natural smile unsightly or unappealing. Finally, as you age, your teeth naturally grind down and cause facial collapse. Facial collapse is the decreasing of distance between your chin and your nose. Facial collapse is subliminally associated with age, so it can make you appear older.
You don’t have to be old to show signs of an aging smile. Heavy teeth grinders or people with naturally small teeth can appear to have age-related facial collapse at a young age. Thankfully, a Smile Lift can be performed on a patient of any age.
Dr. Guy Lewis is one of the leading cosmetic dentists in the world in restoring your natural youthful look through cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Lewis routinely performs Smile Lifts on patients looking for a more youthful, proportionate face. A Smile Lift is the process of restoring the youthful appearance of your smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, porcelain crowns, dental bonding, teeth implants, and teeth whitening.
A Smile Lift addresses more than just aesthetics
Having a youthful smile is much more than looks. A comprehensive Smile Lift addresses not just aesthetic concerns but also the functional aspects of your bite. This will enable you to chew naturally with strength well into your later years. Many patients find that dental implants or implant-supported dentures are an excellent way to add strength and beauty to an aging smile. Dr. Guy Lewis and his team are experts at incorporating dental implants and implant-supported dentures into your Smile Lift. Entering your golden years with a strong, healthy mouth will not only save you a lot of pain and money later on down the line, but it will improve your quality of life.
With a thorough smile analysis, Dr. Guy Lewis can create a plan to restore length, midline, crown-to-root ratio, bone quality, strength, and overall facial appearance to your smile. The smile design process begins at the macro level, examining the patient’s face first then progressing to the evaluation of the individual teeth. Dr. Guy Lewis is truly an artist and can treat teeth that are too short, too long, cracked, crooked, dull, or failing – all contributing factors that may make you appear older.
