Whilst cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics have great benefits for your oral health and straighten teeth in half time, there’s more to this type of dentistry than you might know.
There’s a secret side to the industry, and our Instagram famous dentists are here to reveal their secrets to plumping your lips and face with smile enhancing techniques that actually work!
The rise in demand for invisible braces
As we are now spending more time on video calls, we are being presented with more time to catch our appearances on the screen, which has lead many people to feel even more insecure about their faces and teeth.
More aware of our imperfections than ever before
This extra time and extra disposable income have contributed to a 12% increase in cosmetic dental procedures as more and more people begin to reap the rewards of not just straighter, nicer looking teeth, but fuller faces and more defined jaws.
The lower third of your face really reveals your age
It’s for this reason that aesthetic dentistry is beginning to replace a lot of other cosmetic procedures like fillers, lip injections and facelifts.
For years people have been convinced that facial tweaks like fillers were going to solve all their problems. But little did they know that dental treatments could actually be more suitable for them as well as being more effective at achieving healthier, more natural results.
Treatments that combat ageing and facial sagging
Ageing is inevitable for us all, as we grow older our collagen levels reduce in our skin and our teeth begin to move and collapse inwards.
This creates the appearance of a narrow smile, where a significant amount of volume has been lost in the lower face.
But did you know Invisalign can help with this? Yes, you read that right, Invisalign clear aligners impressive counteract these problems by widening the smile and straightening the teeth.
This adds more structure and support to your mouth, and subsequently your face.
This can help to reduce the appearance of sagging.
Plus as Invisalign is virtually invisible it allows patients to carry out their treatments privately, and in these current times, behind a mask.
