If you want to reverse the effects of aging on your face, a dental facelift may be the solution for you. The procedure is non-invasive, making it a less intimidating alternative to injections and the traditional facelift. With the artistic and precise work of The Paddington Dental Surgery team, porcelain veneers are shaped to add fullness to patients’ smiles, while still providing a completely natural look.
The dental facelift works by adding volume or length to teeth to fill the face, while also improving tooth appearance. As we age, muscles in the face loosen and teeth become worn down. An effective way to correct this is by building the teeth back up. This simple addition of dental veneers creates desirable results seen in the entire face and not just when you’re smiling.
Benefits of the Dental Facelift
The dental facelift does wonders to help rebuild self-confidence. Once the veneers have been put into place, you’ll enjoy a rejuvenated and youthful appearance as well as many other benefits:
- Thin lips turn fuller from higher tooth volume
- Teeth are brightened as if you had undergone teeth whitening
- Overbite or underbite is corrected
- Speech is improved from adjusted teeth positioning
- Sunken cheeks are supported for a healthier look
- Face is elongated to reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Like with any procedure, your dental facelift will be customized to your unique needs, and only what you wish to change will be addressed. In practically no time at all, you can have the refreshed look you desire.

Who is a good candidate for a dental facelift?
Many individuals can benefit from a dental facelift. This procedure is designed to rejuvenate your appearance by enhancing the aesthetics of the teeth and gums. Therefore, you will be best served by this treatment if you have common signs of aging that can be softened by improving the shape, size, and quality of your teeth. If you are bothered by teeth staining, thinning lips, facial volume loss, and deep creases, a dental facelift may be able to help you minimise these concerns. A dental facelift is not a surgical procedure, but it can have dramatic effects. Furthermore, any oral health issues can be identified and addressed prior to beginning.
What is the difference between a dental facelift, Smile Makeover, and full mouth reconstruction?
There are many similarities between these three popular treatments, but what makes them distinct is very simple. A dental facelift is intended to give the patient a more youthful appearance. A Smile Makeover uses primarily cosmetic techniques to enhance the beauty of the smile. And full mouth reconstruction combines multiple restorative procedures to improve the health and function of the oral structures. These terms help you determine which approach is ideal for your desired outcome, but each one can be personalised to accommodate your preferences. Not sure which one is right for you? Our friendly and knowledgeable team will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss your goals before recommending options that can help you obtain a beautiful and healthy smile.
How long does the process take?
One of the many benefits of a dental facelift is the relatively quick experience. Most patients can complete the treatment in as little as two appointments, sometimes three. Our dentists will let you know what the expected timeline should look like during your initial consultation. If you add on supplementary procedures, the process could take longer, depending on what techniques are used. It is our philosophy to keep you informed about your progress at every stage so you feel empowered to make the best dental decisions for you.
Are there any health benefits?
A dental facelift can enhance self-confidence as well as heighten your beauty, and it is possible that your treatment plan will improve your oral health as well. If you have existing health concerns, we can help address those before beginning your dental facelift procedure. Our dedicated team of dental professionals is committed to providing exceptional care that takes into consideration your whole health. We believe that wellness and aesthetics can exist side-by-side—you should never have to choose between the two!
