A Scalpeless Facelift Can Improve Your Facial Contours
If you want to rejuvenate and enhance the proportions of your face, you may be considering cosmetic surgery. However, before visiting a plastic surgeon, you may want to weigh the benefits of a scalpeless facelift at our Montreal, QC, dental practice. Through a series of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, Drs. Charles and Patrick Casey can often achieve results comparable to surgery. Through this treatment, your dentist can enhance irregularly sized teeth, giving you a bigger smile and filling out your lips and cheeks. He can also correct jaw misalignment to improve an overbite, underbite, or crossbite. At Smile Montreal, we use the latest neuromuscular dentistry techniques. In this way, we can help you achieve a healthy bite alignment that will improve your oral function and help you look years younger.
Are You a Candidate for a Scalpeless Facelift?
Discrepancies in the size of your teeth can dramatically affect your appearance. For example, if you have worn teeth, your smile may seem disproportionately small. Dental erosion could also make you look several years older than you are. Similarly, jaw misalignment can alter the proportions of your face. Often, if you suffer from malocclusion, your cheeks could appear hollow or you could have drooping skin around your mouth. A scalpeless facelift can revitalize your appearance by correcting dental concerns such as:
- Small teeth
- Open bite
- Buck teeth
The Facelift Procedure
The scalpeless facelift is a fully customized procedure, combining various restorative and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Charles or Dr. Patrick Casey will evaluate your needs and aesthetic goals before selecting the most effective procedures for you. Using precise neuromuscular techniques, your dentist can determine the optimal position for your jaw. This will alleviate pressure on your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) to reduce discomfort. At the same time, it can also have outstanding cosmetic effects.
Following your consultation, your dentist may recommend a combination of dental procedures to complete your scalpeless facelift that could include:
- TMJ mouth guard: A custom-made mouth guard can realign your jaw. Because it can also provide relief to overworked facial muscles, it could have lasting effects for your oral health and appearance.
- Orthodontics: Braces can realign your teeth for a more balanced appearance. Our traditional braces are cost effective, and Dr. Casey will monitor your progress throughout the course of treatment.
- Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers can conceal many types of cosmetic imperfections. They are especially helpful in reshaping worn or overly small teeth.
- Dental crowns: Because dental crowns will fit over your teeth, they can cover more severe flaws. By rebuilding very worn teeth, dental crowns can also fill in sunken cheeks for a more youthful look.
The Benefits of a Scalpeless Facelift
We urge all patients who are considering plastic surgery to consult with a dentist first, especially if they suffer from jaw complications. A surgical facelift will not improve dental alignment; therefore, it may not have the same comprehensive results that a scalpeless facelift can provide. Additionally, a plastic surgeon will not be able to reduce pressure on the jaw joints, redistribute the force of the bite, or ease jaw pain.
A surgical facelift will not improve dental alignment; therefore, it may not have the same comprehensive results that a scalpeless facelift can provide.
Another benefit to the scalpeless facelift is that it is non-invasive. Following certain treatments, such as the placement of dental crowns, you may experience some sensitivity. However, this discomfort is typically mild and usually subsides within several days. In contrast, a surgical facelift involves incisions, causes significant swelling and inflammation, and requires several weeks of recovery. In fact, many patients do not see their final cosmetic results until months after their treatments have been performed.
