Am I a Candidate?
The first thing anyone would want to know about Anti-Aging Dentistry is if they are a candidate for its procedures! In Anti-Aging Dentistry, Restoring Youth One Smile at a Time, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, DDS goes over each of the key factors he looks for in order to determine if a patient is a candidate or not.
“Anti-Aging Dentistry is a unique approach to dentistry,” says Dr. Maddahi, “mainly because I am first looking at someone’s facial structures for imbalances and deficiencies, and then looking inside their mouth for the answers to what I’ve observed. This allows me to see the solutions before I see the problems and work backwards, which is what makes Anti-Aging Dentistry cases appear so natural. I’m not putting anything artificial underneath my patient’s skin, I’m simply giving their cheeks, lips, and jaw back the support that they need to appear youthful.”
With the use of porcelain veneers and crowns, Dr. Maddahi is able to lengthen the teeth to un-squish the lower third of the face, widen the arch to lessen hollowness of the cheeks, and thin the lips to improve the symmetry of the face, all while whitening and straightening the teeth.
