How your teeth can affect your facial appearance 

A collapsed smile is a common age-related complaint. As you age, your face loses volume and the structure of your teeth and jaw undergo age-associated changes.

Your teeth and jaw support your lips and cheeks, which means changes to their structure can have a major impact on the shape and appearance of your face. Common age-related changes can make you appear aged and tired.

It may surprise you to know that this cosmetic problem isn’t limited only to older adults. A collapsed smile can affect people who grind their teeth, as well as those who have naturally small teeth.

A smile lift involves using veneers to address aesthetic issues that make your face look older. It not only helps you look younger, but also improves aspects of your bite. This adds strength and beauty to your smile.

How can a smile lift transform your smile?

After a comprehensive smile analysis, we create an individualized plan to restore your youthful facial appearance with a smile lift. We examine the structure of your face and evaluate your individual teeth.

Veneers can address factors that contribute to an older-appearing smile, such as teeth that are too short, too long, or dull. A smile lift restores the vertical dimension, which refers to the distance between your chin and nose. This corrects a collapsed, aged appearance to give you a brand new, youthful-looking smile.

A smile lift can take decades off of your face by restoring what the lower half of your face looked like 20 years ago. We use onlay veneers to cover the front and biting surface of the tooth. This provides the space necessary to lengthen the teeth and enhance facial volume.
