HYDERABAD: Enhancement of facial beauty is one of the primary elective goals of patients seeking dental care. The lower one-third of the face has a major impact on the perception of facial aesthetics. Frequent improvements in natural beauty can be expected to follow restoration of ideal relationships between the denture and the facial soft tissues. By improving deficient facial proportion and integumental form, surgeons, orthodontists, and restorative dentists have the unique opportunity to address these aesthetic needs.
The new factor
New results can be obtained from a FAD Smile Makeover, wherein one can improve the lower third of the face, where wrinkles pop up around the upper lip area, through manipulation of tooth width and size – while still keeping a natural looking appearance by using FAD (Facial Aesthetic Design). In addition, one can incorporate facial aesthetic injectables: Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, and Restylane to further improve the face.
Facial rejuvenation a cosmetic treatment (or series of cosmetic treatments), which aims to restore a youthful appearance to the human face. Facial rejuvenation can be achieved through either surgical and/or non-surgical options. Procedures can vary in invasiveness and depth of treatment. Surgical procedures can restore facial symmetry trough targeted procedures and facial restructuring and skin alterations. Non-surgical procedures can target specific depths of facial structures and treat localised facial concerns such as wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and scars.
Surgical (invasive) facial rejuvenation procedures can include a brow lift (forehead lift), eye lift (blepharoplasty), facelift (rhytidectomy), chin lift and neck lift. Non-surgical (non-invasive) facial rejuvenation treatments can include chemical peels, neuromodulator (such as botox), dermal fillers, photorejuvenation, radiofrequency and Ultrasound. Cosmetic Dentistry can offer new options to help achieve a more youthful appearance by diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, plumping up lips, and perfecting smiles to make patients look 10 years younger, safely and efficiently without surgery. To do so, the dentist enhances the teeth with cosmetic dentistry and thin porcelain veneers custom designed by ceramists who create veneers that match color, size and shape of the natural teeth.
It offers the following:
Immediate Gratification: Plastic surgery takes about six weeks and numerous visits to the doctor, the FAD Smile makeover,” Scalpel-Free Face Lift “can be completed in just one day.

How do they do it? With various adjustments that affects facial appearance from the inside out, including: Veneer (Tooth) Enlargement - Laugh lines are decreased when the upper portion of a normally paper thin veneer is thickened, the facial area above the veneer is pushed out, thereby smoothing upper lip wrinkles while causing lips to appear more full and pouty.
Veneer (Tooth) Elongation: Shorter teeth signify ageing, so veneers are made longer creating the appearance of younger, longer teeth. The mouth appears fuller with longer teeth as they actually push out the lower lip, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Veneer Shading – Stained teeth age people considerably. Placing a natural-looking, whiter veneer over discolored teeth brightens the face and creates a more youthful, appearance.
