The hands of time can be unfair, making you look older than you truly are or are at heart.
Cosmetic procedures like Botox® and lip injections can help you restore your youthful appearance, but only temporarily. These require repeat treatments, quickly adding up in costs.
If you wanted to reverse signs of aging permanently, you would have to undergo plastic surgery…
That is, until now!
With anti-aging dentistry, you can get a facelift without surgery and takes years off your appearance.
So, what is this too-good-to-be-true treatment?
Let’s find out!
What is anti-aging dentistry?
First, let’s understand the ways your smile changes as you age:
- Gums recede
- Teeth yellow
- You lose teeth
- Teeth shift
- Teeth wear down
- Outdated dental work needs replacing
- Lose bone mass
- Less saliva = more dental problems
Your teeth are the foundation for your face. When that foundation begins to crumble, it creates a ripple effect on the rest of your face, such as lips sagging, fine lines appearing, a sunk-in look, etc.
How does anti-aging dentistry make you look younger?
Anti-aging dentistry uses cosmetic dental procedures to change the way your teeth support your facial structure and give you a younger-looking smile.
It’s a non-surgical facelift with long-lasting results!
Some anti-aging dentistry procedures could include:
Your treatment plan may consist of one or more of the above, depending on your unique case.
How do these treatments change your face?
A lot of people’s teeth shorten as they age from years of grinding and wear. By changing the dimensions of your teeth (often lengthening them with veneers), you can:
- Say “goodbye” to that sagged or double chin
- Lift your cheeks
- Eliminate that hollow look
- Fill out fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve your lips
Another problem with aging is losing teeth to decay or gum disease. Replacing a missing tooth will help:
- Preserve bone structure to support your face
- Restore your smile’s health and function
- Keep your surrounding teeth in place
- Boost your confidence to smile more (smiling is a sign of youthfulness)
There are a million other ways anti-aging dentistry can change your face, but instead of listing them ALL…

How is anti-aging dentistry different than cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is primarily focused on improving the appearance of your smile, not your entire face.
Anti-aging dentistry uses cosmetic dentistry but with an added purpose, making you look younger from forehead to chin.
But the real difference lies within the dentist you choose.
First, let’s remember, not all cosmetic dentists are created equal. Since cosmetic dentistry is not a specialized field, essentially, any dentist can claim they are a cosmetic dentist.
Here are two ways to tell if a cosmetic dentist has any claim:
- Are they an Accredited Member at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry? To achieve this level of distinction, a dentist must complete additional training and education, and prove their cosmetic skills. Opens new tab to AACD website Click here to view Dr. Horn’s AACD accreditation.

Second, anti-aging dentistry takes on a whole other layer than any other type of dentistry. It requires a dentist’s complete understanding of facial anatomy and the natural aging process.
To obtain this, a dentist must receive continuing education and training beyond dental school.
Lastly, you don’t just want a dentist who can help you look younger today. You want to find a dentist who has a keen eye for predicting how you will naturally continue to age and how your anti-aging dental care can help you maintain that youthful appearance.
