The Smile Facelift® is a revolutionary dental procedure invented by our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, Michael Kosdon, DDS, that can take years off your appearance – without invasive cosmetic surgery. The Smile Facelift® procedure uses porcelain veneers to slightly lift up your cheeks, which can ultimately reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even make your lips appear fuller. Your ability to chew, bite, and speak properly may also improve after getting a Smile Facelift®.
The natural aging process often causes the teeth to become worn down, which then results in the face actually getting shorter. This can lead to more pronounced wrinkles and a more aged appearance. With a Smile Facelift®, many patients can address these issues and attain a more youthful, refreshed look without the need for cosmetic injectables or more invasive surgical treatment.
Dr. Kosdon believes personalized treatment is the best treatment. He will listen attentively to your needs and develop a treatment plan specifically designed to help you achieve your goals. Dr. Kosdon is highly detail-oriented and truly cares about his patients. He will take all of your unique qualities into consideration when creating your Smile Facelift® treatment plan in order to provide you with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Smile Facelift® Process
It all starts when Dr. Kosdon evaluates your smile and facial shape. He will also examine skin tone, fullness of the lips, teeth length, and other factors. After he makes impressions of your teeth, a customized set of porcelain veneers will be created. With our technical skills and state-of-the-art technology, your porcelain veneers will look and feel very natural. The veneers are stain resistant, and they will mask existing dental imperfections. The thin, durable veneers should also work to reduce signs of wrinkling, give you a wider smile, and ultimately help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
