smile rejuvenationHave you noticed that your face is changing its shape with every passing year? Have you started to form jowls or lines around your mouth? You might be surprised to learn that these changes do not have to be a normal part of the aging process and that your dentist can help restore your face to a more youthful look. With a treatment process known as smile rejuvenation, Dr. Moiceanu can help turn back the clock and give both your teeth and your face a younger, more attractive appearance.

What is smile rejuvenation?

As you age, your teeth naturally wear down, causing the space between your upper and lower jaw to close in. When this happens, your nose and chin move closer together, compressing the lower part of your face and causing changes in the appearance of your lips, cheeks, and jaw. A smile rejuvenation restores your teeth to their former size and shape, which will eliminate the sunken look of the lower third of your face.

What can smile rejuvenation do for me?

Aside from the cosmetic benefits of a more youthful appearance, a smile rejuvenation will restore proper functioning of your teeth. As teeth often wear down because they do not meet properly when you bite or chew, Dr. Moiceanu will focus on building up the tooth structure so that the teeth fit together properly when you bite down. With a smile rejuvenation, you will not only look better, but you will also feel better with teeth that function properly.

What treatments can rejuvenate my smile?

Dr. Moiceanu employs several methods to help make your teeth, smile, and facial structure appear more youthful through smile rejuvenation:

  • Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded onto the front of the teeth to change their color, shape, and length.
  • Porcelain crowns completely cover a tooth and can also change its shape and size, and they are especially helpful in restoring a proper bite on the back teeth.
  • Dental implants are used when teeth are too worn down or decayed to be saved.

If you feel that your worn-down teeth are making you look old before your time, Dr. Moiceanu will formulate the perfect smile rejuvenation treatment plan for you.
