Your teeth can actually make you look younger. As we age, it’s a known fact, our teeth become discolored, worn out and even sometimes need to be extracted.
Even the most diligent person with their daily oral hygiene routine who visits a dentist regularly will even show signs of aging at some point in life. If you have lost teeth or gaps in your teeth these things can actually lead to wrinkles or a sunken-in facial appearance.
How Do Dental Implants Make Me Look Younger?
The implant itself really is not what makes you look younger, but it is the support that it gives your mouth and cheeks. The implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone which means it will and does function like a tooth root in terms of how it functions and support. That implant is a dental crown that looks beautiful just like a natural-looking tooth.
The results of the implant will be like having your old teeth again, only better because these new implant crowns will look flawless. The color will blend with your other teeth. For patients that have several missing teeth or more, their new implants provide a permanent solution to their sunken in face or the fine lines around their mouth. The implants provide natural facial support, just like your teeth once did. Dentures or a partial may achieve similar support, but neither option is permanent, and each has to be removed at night. Dental implants, however, are permanent just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants are not for everyone though. The only way to tell if dental implants are for you is to give our office a call and schedule a consultation. Let us assess your oral health, and help you consider your smile goals while determining the best treatment plan for you.
