Dental Implants for retirement smile make over

Dream of having the perfect smile? You’re not alone. 96% of us think our smile plays an important role in how attractive we are, and 40% say a smile is the first thing they notice about a new colleague. Retirement can be an opportunity to take time for yourself for a change.

As we age, our smiles start to change due to volume loss in the face and dental trauma, such as missing teeth. If this is you, you’re probably wondering how to get your old smile back.

Que dental implants. They're the secret, undetectable way to get your smile and your confidence back. Keep reading to find out how dental implants restore face shape:

How Can Implants Restore Your Face Shape?

As we age, our dental bone mass deteriorates, and this can “hollow out” the lower third of your face. Dental implants help to restore missing bone mass in the jaw, which revitalizes the shape of your face and makes skin look firmer! Essentially, the implant will prop up the vertical dimension of your face, which can also reduce further hollowing in the future.

Even for younger clients, dental implants can have a drastic impact on your facial features. After all, we call it a smile makeover for a reason! Uneven teeth affect the fullness of your lips and the shape of you smile. Many clients get dental implants before having cosmetic treatments like lip fillers, to enhance their overall look.

Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, so you don’t need to worry about mismatches or differences in color. They will blend perfectly! You can add a whitening treatment, however, to give your smile an extra boost of radiance.

Dental Implants For Missing Teeth?

One of the most common reasons people have dental implants is to fix missing teeth. Missing teeth accelerate the anti-process by creating gaps in your supporting bone structure.

When you lose a tooth, the bone that would have supported the tooth will lack the stimulation needed to repair. Typically, this results in the bone weakening and gradually reducing in size. Studies have shown that your dental bone loses up to 50% of its width the year after losing a tooth and this can affect your entire face.

The longer you choose to not treat your missing teeth, the more noticeable this will be. Common effects of missing teeth include sunken cheeks and lips. Dental implants can help prevent this and help restore your normal facial appearance.
