Odessa Cosmetic Dentist Explains the Dental Facelift Procedure

Dr. Robin Rutherford Discusses How the Dental Facelift Procedure Can Rejuvenate a Patient's Face and Teeth for a More Youthful-Looking Appearance

ODESSA, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2014) - At the Art of Dentistry, Odessa cosmetic dentist Robin Rutherford, DDS offers an innovative treatment designed to help patients restore a more youthful, vibrant facial aesthetic. Known as a Dental Facelift, Dr. Rutherford says this noninvasive procedure is an alternative to more comprehensive cosmetic treatments and can help restore the appearance of aging skin and worn teeth. In an effort to explain how the procedure works, the cosmetic dentist recently unveiled a two-part blog series.

In his first blog post, "Why You Should Consider Getting a Dental Facelift," Dr. Rutherford explains in detail how the treatment can renew and enhance a patient's smile and facial appearance. Due to enamel wearing down and teeth becoming shorter over time, he shares how it is not uncommon for people to experience discoloration, chips, cracks, and uneven teeth. These dental problems, he says, can often make wrinkles more prominent and cause patients to appear older than they are.

In a subsequent post, "What Does a Dental Facelift Entail?," Dr. Rutherford reveals the process and various procedures that may be involved in a Dental Facelift treatment. He says he starts by carefully studying his patient's facial characteristics before determining their treatment options. Patients with missing teeth are likely to receive dental implants, while patients with stained, cracked, or uneven teeth may get porcelain veneers or crowns. The shape and size of the patient's new teeth can help elongate their facial structure while minimizing the signs of wrinkles and fine lines, he emphasizes. Combined with teeth whitening, he believes patients can attain a more youthful look without the need for extensive cosmetic procedures.

Ultimately, Dr. Rutherford and the rest of his Odessa cosmetic dentistry staff wish to continue providing the most advanced and effective dental services for patients hoping to achieve beautiful teeth and spectacular smiles.
