There are many factors to a great smile. It’s not only about having straight, white, healthy teeth and fresh breath. The surrounding structures need to be attractive as well. You can’t have one without the other to have your most stunning, sexiest smile. Think of your smile like a beautiful painting; it needs a great frame that does it justice and showcases it. As we age, we tend to lose the support that teeth and bones provide to the lower face and mouth. By positioning your teeth and jaws in a certain manner, we can regain some of that lost support and reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and jawline, creating the best esthetics for the smile. And with today’s fillers and neurotoxins, we can enhance a smile’s “frame” even further by giving back lost volume to the lips and surrounding mouth area. Teeth whitening, laser gum recontouring, and re-shaping of teeth are additional ways to beautify your smile. And of course, at least for women, there’s also the right lipstick. We help people in all these areas (except the lipstick!), and our smile consultations are free.
