At Park Meadows Dental Care in Centennial, we offer many procedures that can help you regain a youthful appearance. Whether your problem is wrinkles, sagging and hollowness in the face, or a smile that shows its age, we can help you turn back the clock on your appearance to look younger.
Botox and Beyond for Eliminating Wrinkles
Wrinkles are the most common complaint that people have about their appearance as they get older. Fortunately, we have many ways of reducing or eliminating them.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic injections are the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world because they work so well, have few side effects, are affordable, and are very safe. BOTOX ® Cosmetic works by relaxing certain muscles that have become overactive after years of controlling facial expressions. BOTOX ® Cosmetic works best on lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
Juvéderm injections also help eliminate some facial folds and wrinkles, especially nasolabial folds, the parentheses lines that form around your mouth.
Proper Support for Your Face
One major cause of wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls that develop with age is the loss of support for your facial tissues. As your teeth wear down or are lost and your body naturally removes material from your jawbones, the lower third of the face begins to collapse. There is now too much skin for the reduced bone and tooth volume, which causes the skin to sag down, including the cheek pads and skin under the chin, or folds, like the skin around the mouth.
Restoring what was lost using reconstructive dentistry naturally puts your face back into its youthful configuration. Dental implants replace lost teeth, while dental crowns build up teeth that are worn down. There’s no need for surgery that cuts and stretches your skin and can distort your appearance–you will still look like you, just younger.
Juvéderm can also be used to replace lost volume in the face area, especially if losing weight with age has led to shrunken or hollow cheeks.
A Bright, Youthful Smile
Our teeth can also make us look older. With age, our teeth can become discolored, rather than the bright, beautiful white they had in our youth. Teeth whitening is a great way to remove many of the daily stains that make your smile look dull and aged.
Porcelain veneers can also be used to make your teeth beautifully white again, especially if you’re already getting reconstructive dentistry to build up the size of your teeth. Porcelain veneers also have the benefit of giving long-lasting results, with stain resistance that can last ten years or more.
If you feel young in your heart but look old in the mirror, we can help you look as young as you feel.
