A smile lift: what’s involved? Wednesday, March 6, 2013

If you feel the light has gone from your face, dentists claim a smile lift can knock five to ten years off your age. Appling veneers, ‘porcelain contact- lenses’, to your teeth has the effect of slightly lifting your lips and widening your smile. Also whitening your teeth is renewing. Lighter teeth give a fresh, more youthful appearance. Loosing the colour of your teeth is part of the ageing process and teeth start to change colour from teenage years. Genetics also play a part in colour of teeth. If your parents had yellow teeth, you are more likely to follow suit. Typical teeth strainers are red wine, coffee and tea, tobacco and turmeric in curries.
Finally, your smile will be enhanced by lengthening your teeth especially if they have worn down. One thing to consider is the shape of your face. Your teeth can affect the form of your face. For example, if a patient has a round face, your dentist may suggest creating longer, squarer-shaped teeth that will have slimming effect facially. It is important that you are taught to take care of your gums and teeth on a daily basis. Dentists claim that with regular mouth care and maintenance the effects of your smile- lift can last a lifetime.
