Why Rejuvenating Your Smile Can Rejuvenate Your Face

When you think about what makes you look older, you probably imagine that everything just begins to sag. But that’s only part of the truth. The other part is that the support for the lower third of your face actually shrinks, which makes it look as though your entire face is actually sagging down more than in the past.

Why is the lower third of your face shrinking? That’s the part of the structure provided by your teeth and jaws. As we get older, our teeth wear down, get restored, and are sometimes lost. This reduces the volume of the support structure, so that the skin which used to fit taut over your face now begins to show:

  • Thin, compressed lips
  • Wrinkles radiating from the mouth
  • Jowls and sagging skin at the jaw or under the chin
  • Deep creases between your chin and lower lip
  • Squished, saggy, or wrinkled skin on your lower face

As a result, your face might look older than you are, or, at any rate, older than it should.

But R.E.newSmile Dentistry™ reverses this process to restore your face to its youthful proportions. You’ll see a reduction in those signs of aging. R.E.newSmile Dentistry™ also makes your smile look more youthful, too, brightening and reshaping your teeth at the same time. The combined effect is dramatic rejuvenation making you look at least 15 years younger.

Dentures Could Help You Look Younger, Too

It surprises most people to learn that dentures can make them look younger. Most people believe that dentures make them look older. That used to be the case, but new dentures can help people look younger.

Why Dentures Can Make You Look Older

Traditional dentures can make you look older because they are:

  • Not properly fitted
  • Poorly customized
  • Designed for stability, not appearance
  • Unable to maintain bone
  • Badly worn
  • Prone to stains

Traditional denture fitting has changed little over the decades, even centuries. The denture is fitted just over your gums, and often comes in just a few different sizes. This means that dentures don’t fully replace the size of lost teeth and bone.

Dentures are so naturally unstable that they have to be designed to try to make them more stable, which often means that they aren’t placed in a natural tooth position. More often they are far back in the mouth, which can lead to a sunken in appearance.

Even when denturest don’t start out making you look old, they will make you look old before too long. That’s because dentures don’t help you maintain your jawbone. As the jawbone shrinks, your face will lose support, making you look older. The denture itself also wears down, causing you to look older.

And traditional dentures are more prone to stains, so they quickly become discolored and can make you look older because of their appearance.
