Slow Facial Aging

Reverse the Signs of Aging

Some people have gray hair by the time they are 30 while others escape wrinkles until they are 40. While a lot of facial aging is outside our control, fortunately there are some things we CAN control. We can adjust muscle tension, tooth placement, jaw posture, and the effects of gravity on the face to slow or reverse signs of aging.

The Anti-Aging Smile™ uses expertly developed algorithms to determine ideal tooth placement for anti-aging dentistry. With Dr. Turchin, you can have a youthful, beautiful smile!

Dr. Andrew Turchin can help you control the speed at which your face ages by addressing the following:

Facial Support

Wrinkles

Aging Lips

Damaged/Worn Teeth

Prevention

Facial Support

While we can’t control gravity, we can control its effects. By supporting your facial structure properly with your teeth, we can ensure that your soft tissues will be less likely to droop.

For instance, if you have narrow arches, caved or sloped teeth, or recessed teeth, your facial support is poor. Without correction, gravity will weigh on the facial tissues and create sagging jowls and excess wrinkles. We address this issue by making sure that your teeth are broadly situated and your arches are as broad as possible. Your side teeth will act like tent poles to support your soft tissues and save your muscles from bearing the full effects of gravity. In effect, this will slow the rate of facial aging.

Correcting your jaw posture and bite can also save your teeth by minimizing tension so that TMD and teeth grinding symptoms are reduced. With a Smile Makeover, we can strengthen facial support, decrease deep lines, and slow facial aging.

He is truly a master of his craft!

Friends and family comment on how good I look but cant figure out exactly what the change is. I love it that way. I did not want to look like I had a false white toothed smile that one could see from across the room. I still look totally like myself but better. I would highly recommend Dr. Turchin and his entire team! In fact, I have, to many friends!

Wrinkles

Muscle activity in the face creates lines that eventually become permanent wrinkles. The posture of the jaw can have a direct effect on how these wrinkles form. We will adjust your jaw posture and bite, optimizing their placement and situation so that your facial muscles can relax around them, much like how good posture relaxes the muscles in your back. Relaxing the facial muscles with better jaw posture creates a BOTOX®-like effect so that your facial skin can continue to lie flat, smooth, and undisturbed.

Going forward Dr. Turchin will be my primary dentist

Having Dr. Turchin as your dentist is like having Carl Jung as your psychiatrist. The man and his staff are world-class. Prepare to have your problems solved.

Aging Lips

Time, facial expressions, eating, and other factors can lead to thinning and asymmetrical lips over time. Incredibly, the position of your front teeth can positively or negatively affect the appearance of your lips! By correctly positioning your teeth in the front for ideal lip support, we can restore full, symmetrical lips to give your smile a lovely, youthful quality.

Going forward Dr. Turchin will be my primary dentist

I visited this practice for the first time last week after chipping my tooth and am extremely pleased with Dr. Turchin’s work. Based on this experience, going forward Dr. Turchin will be my primary dentist. Also, the practice’s staff are extremely friendly and efficient.

Damaged, Worn Teeth

Wrinkles and sagging are not the only sign of facial aging. Damaged, worn teeth can definitely age your appearance. Even if you are careful about dental hygiene, over time your teeth can still crack, turn yellow, and wear down.

Treatments such as an orthotic night guard can stop teeth grinding and prevent your teeth from wearing down as quickly. Other cosmetic treatments like Completely White and custom porcelain veneers can brighten and rebuild your smile so that it looks natural, beautiful, and youthful.

Another wonderful experience at Dr Turchin’s office

“Had another wonderful experience at Dr Turchin’s office Wednesday. While they worked on my teeth seamlessly, I was able to view the movie ‘Stripes’ on the office monitor. I hadn’t seen this movie since the year it came out so it was especially nice to be able to see it while i was being worked on. It made me smile and helped pass the time. I was even allowed to stay another half hour to see the conclusion. That kind of care is what makes this office so special! And that’s the fact, Jack!”

Prevention

If you are bothered by the prospect of aging, it’s never too early to start prevention. The long-term effects of having good facial support and jaw posture are significant, so we recommend beginning this process as early as possible!

Preventive methods can ensure that you and your loved ones stay looking younger longer. We recommend that even your children see an orthodontist to be set up for graceful aging from early on.

I absolutely recommend this office to anyone...

Dr. Turchin is absolutely the best cosmetic dentist. His passion for his craft, the pride he takes in his work, and his attention to detail is very reassuring and refreshing. Dr. Turchin and his team are very professional and gentle and everyone is really friendly. I absolutely recommend this office to anyone who is looking for a great dentist.
