Dental Facelift procedure involves “raising the bite” so as to stretch the facial muscles and muscles around the mouth to reverse the signs of ageing and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
By doing this and providing onlays, crowns or veneers that are slightly taller than the previously worn or damaged teeth, the lower third of the face is lengthened. This in turn can eliminate the small lines at the side of your mouth & improve the profile of your face, giving a more youthful appearance. According to scientific studies, over 80% of patients treated with this procedure look younger.
When the bite is not in an ideal positon the facial structure is not supported. As the ageing process starts, the face tends to sink in much quicker and the face will shorten. This can also cause the lips to appear thinner due to the loss of facial support. A dental facelift will correct the bite positon giving the face more support and making it appear longer.
In some cases, an under bite or overbite can be corrected using cosmetic dental procedures to give a more youthful appearance to your facial profile without the need for orthodontics.
