What made this incredible deviation?
Actually, it’s a number of differences, and that’due south what makes this total bundle of alter.
Yous might say that she is smiling larger in ane photo than the other. Although that is right, I made a change that made that possible.
See how her upper lip in the “before” picture is drooping?
By edifice upwards her denture under her upper lip, I was able to support her lip then it wasn’t drooping, and in turn, she was able to smile bigger.
She didn’t really accept a surgical facelift but she did take a denture facelift!
I moved her upper teeth in the middle of her smile
Everyone loves to see teeth and generally that is what is thought of when yous run across a beautiful grinning.
It’s also what makes you look younger.
With some of our older adults, they want what is more advisable for their age, so I follow a different fix of criteria, but nigh want equally much youthfulness as I tin can give them!
Kind and shape of teeth
– Look at the biting edge of her teeth.
You will notice in the “after” picture that they are non straight across.
Older patients more often than not have worn their front teeth flat from years of utilize.
This is merely ane of the small components in the scheme of things that give you that aged look every bit you lot abound older.
We can go either style; it’south all about the look YOU desire.
Nosotros also used a higher quality molar here that toll a little more than money but the anatomy and the reflection of light within these teeth were worth what information technology added to the terminate result. These are also very hard teeth that won’t article of clothing down as fast as others.
Everyone wants white teeth.
I similar white teeth too, only sometimes it doesn’t compliment.
In the “afterward” denture, we didn’t go as white and therefore it blended better with her lower teeth giving a more natural appearance.
To make the overall smile complete, we could have closed in the spaces between her lower teeth.
This patient was extremely anxious with dental treatment, and she was just fine with non pursuing the additional treatment needed to close these spaces.
We all know that every bit the years become past, our bodies alter.
That’due south truthful of the foundation your denture sits on as well.
With time, this foundation (or ridge) shrinks and your denture sinks right upwards under your lip following its base that it sits on.
It’s a gradual modify that you by and large don’t notice, just as information technology sinks, your teeth are no longer in the heart of your smile.
With utilize, your denture teeth become flat which adds to that anile look.
This also causes your jaws to have to overclose to touch each other while chewing and talking considering of the sinking and vesture.
The worst thing is, if you lot wear that denture too long without changing information technology, you become used to how close your jaws have learned to overclose.
In many cases, we are unable to opposite this overclosure that they accept get a custom to.
To reposition them to their former youthful position and smile, causes a patient to talk with a muffled sound or causes them to hiss when they say their s sounds.
Our goal is
to give every person the smile they want, but each individual mouth presents with different obstacles that sometimes dictate what we end upward with.
