Over time, all things deteriorate, including our physical appearances. As we age, our facial skin tends to sag and droop, while fine lines and deep-set wrinkles begin to appear on our chins, cheeks and foreheads. Although some people decide to accept aging without doing much about it; others spend thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery aimed at turning back the clock.

Big Money

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recently reported that Americans spent more than $10 billion on plastic surgery in 2011. Amazingly, that amount exceeds the gross domestic products of several nations. It also represents a 3 percent increase over what was spent the previous year.

The ASPS’s assessment clearly indicates that Americans want to look younger; however, many people are surprised to learn that they can enjoy a more youthful look without having to go under the knife.

Nonsurgical Methods

Although cosmetic surgery provides help for people who are dissatisfied with the way age has affected their appearance; it’s not always a great choice. Expensive and invasive, surgery can be painful; and, sometimes, it can result in dangerous infections and overall disappointment.On the other hand, many people are surprised to find out that they can attain a younger look by simply switching dentures.

Although age-related changes occur for numerous reasons, some of the blame is owed to what’s going on inside our mouths. Traditional dentures often cause our chins to move closer to our noses, creating an older appearance that many find unappealing. Fortunately, Smile Columbia offers a way to correct this problem by providing patients with Denture Fountain of Youth® Columbia, SC that reduce the appearance of chin wrinkles, lip compression, jowls and more.
