How a procedure in dentistry can make patients look 5-20 years younger
What is it about?
The Dentalfacelift is a technique where the patient’s dentures or teeth are modified in a way that makes the whole face look between five and twenty years younger. Ninety six patients were involved in the study.
Why is it important?
Until this study, the dentist’s role in improving the patient’s appearance involved whitening the teeth, veneering or crowning the front teeth and straightening the teeth with orthodontics. The Dentalfacelift technique showed that all the features of the face could be improved. It involved dentists looking at the whole face instead of just inside the mouth. This was an iconic turning point in dentistry.
