Once we have decided that the lower facial height needs to be
increased to improve facial aesthetics then we can lengthen the
patients existing teeth by various methods. One of the options
involves no drilling of the teeth and involves building the height
by putting onlays and veneers on the existing teeth. Not everyone is
suited to this option. It will depend whether you have any existing
crowns and on the angulation of the teeth.
In some cases all the teeth will have to be crowned. The end
result will still be the same, a beautiful smile and a dramatic
improvement in facial features. Further improvement will continue to
occur for the next 3 to 4 years.
Before doing any treatment a thorough examination of the gums and
the state of the temporo mandibular joint will have to be done.
To maintain the improvements and to slow down the signs of facial
aging patients are advised to have the Oraliftappliance.
