Want Plumper Lips? Porcelain Veneers Are the Answer

v12Angelina Jolie. The Kardashian clan. Scarlett Johansson. These female celebs all have one thing in common – luscious lips. Some are natural, others are not, but all you need to know is that your lips can be plumper too, and you don’t have to resort to clever makeup application or injectable toxins to make it happen. Cosmetic dentistry is your ultimate solution – in the form of porcelain veneers.

What Makes Lips Get Thinner?

You may not have always had thin lips. As age creeps up on you, however, one of the few places on your body where you’d be happy to retain some volume – your lips – is, ironically, one of the spots where plumpness will all but disappear on you.

Your lips are made of soft tissue which is supported by collagen, and the amount of collagen you produce can begin decreasing even as early as your twenties. Compound this with low bone density in your jaw, another unfortunate side effect of aging, and your lips will be unsupported and begin to roll inward and look thinner.

It’s not just nature that affects the plumpness of your lips. Your habits can also impact whether volume stays or goes. Overexposure to the sun, licking your lips, and overdoing it on the hot showers can cause dryness which impacts the proportion of your lips.

Do Over-the-Counter Lip Plumping Solutions Work?

There are all sorts of “magical” venoms and glosses and lipsticks that promise to put some serious plump back into your pout. Some topical solutions claim to stimulate collagen growth, though you may have to tolerate the sensation of tingly lips.

And there is, of course, the old Lucille Ball trick of attempting to draw your lips bigger than they actually are and filling them in with lipstick. But unless you can conduct some sorcery to get this color to stay in place, your cover will be blown at a meal or with a few sips of your drink.

Makeup tricks and topical treatments may give the illusion of plumper lips and add dimension right where you need it, but these are temporary solutions to a long-term problem.

Cosmetic Dentistry Is the Anti-Aging Solution

A more permanent, natural-looking solution – with plenty of benefits – is available to perk up your lips. Porcelain veneers not only revitalize the look of your teeth by hiding cracks, chips, and breaks and making your teeth whiter, straighter, and more uniform, veneers also boost the volume of your lips.

Porcelain veneers are customized to suit you and only you, and they are designed to extend and shape your teeth, which means your lips will sit slightly differently on your teeth, giving them a small boost. This procedure can also help eliminate some fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth. Not to mention the fact that a smile makeover using porcelain veneers will make you smile bigger, more often, and make you look healthier, wealthier, smarter, happier, and – yes – younger.

Get a plump pout in no time with porcelain veneers. Make your appointment with Dr. John Moore at Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio to discuss the cosmetic dentistry smile makeover options that are right for you.
