Regain Your Youthful Look with Sunken Face Treatment

A sunken face, or sunken cheeks, is a condition where the area around the cheeks looks sunken or hollowed out. This can happen due to ageing, illness, genetics, trauma, or dental problems. This sunken appearance can be age-related, but it can also occur due to an underlying dental structure problem like missing teeth or improper alignment of the teeth and jaw.

At DaVinci Smiles, we understand that a sunken face is more than just a cosmetic issue. It can cause problems with oral health and make everyday activities difficult. We offer sunken face treatments with dental implants that restore the area and enhance your oral health. At our clinic, we provide customised sunken face treatments that begin with a comprehensive dental and jawbone exam. In some cases, x-rays may be required to further evaluate the issue.

Our dental professionals will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your needs, lifestyle, and budget. Our treatments include single implants, multiple implants, and implant-retained dentures. Our dental professionals will walk you through the process and find the appropriate treatment. At DaVinci Smiles, we only use quality materials and cutting-edge tools. We strive to provide a positive experience so you can feel confident in your smile again!

What Causes Sunken Face

At DaVinci Smiles, we know the struggles of having a sunken face and are here to help. Before any procedure begins, it is essential to determine its cause in order to develop a personalised treatment plan.

Tooth Loss

When a tooth is lost, the underlying bone can slowly break down over time due to the lack of structure from the missing tooth. When paired with neglect and improper dental care, it can stunt facial development and permanently alter natural growth curves in the face. Over time, it leads to sunken cheeks that could require more complex and costly treatments.

Gum Recession

Gum recession is a common issue caused by the shrinking of bone around your teeth and can cause sunken cheeks and loss of structure in your face. Over time, these symptoms tend to worsen, given that lack of appropriate treatment leads to recurrent levels of shrinkage along the gumline – they only get deeper and more distinguishable with time when left unaddressed.


Collagen and elastin production decreases as we age, which can alter our facial structure. This gradual weakening of the skin’s natural structure can often result in sunken cheeks. Over time, this may become more pronounced and visible to others. The complexion of the area may become darker, and skin folds start to develop, altering our overall appearance and look.

Bone Loss

Periodontal disease can cause jawbone disintegration. This often leads to weakened or shrunken bones, resulting in obvious changes to the shape of the cheeks, like sunken areas. As such, diseased jawbones are visible in the appearance of hollowed-out cheeks. Without proper treatment, the condition can worsen and even lead to facial collapse. Oral health professionals can help prevent and protect your jawbone from further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sunken Face

At DaVinci Smiles, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive sunken face treatment and care. In this section, you’ll find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about sunken face treatments.

A sunken face is usually caused by tooth loss and can be identified by a sunken-in complexion, loose skin around the cheeks, deep wrinkles, and a pointed chin. Other symptoms of a sunken face include:

  • A worn appearance
  • Prominent jowls or jaw area
  • Thinning lips
  • Excessive sagging of the jawbone.

A sunken face can cause problems with eating, speaking, and confidence. It also leads to premature ageing and can make you more vulnerable to infections because of the lack of protective tissue covering your teeth.

Your dentist at DaVinci Smiles can use a variety of treatments to address your sunken face, depending on your specific circumstances. Dental implants are the most commonly used option for sunken face treatment because they replace missing teeth, restore facial structure, and support facial muscles. Other options may include dental bridges, dentures, facial surgery, and fillers to minimise wrinkles.

A sunken face can lead to premature ageing and make you more vulnerable to infection. It can also contribute to sunken cheeks, sunken eyes, and sunken temples due to the loss of facial volume. By addressing sunken faces with dental treatments from DaVinci Smiles, you can restore your facial structure, improve your appearance, and reduce the risk of further problems.

Absolutely! Eating a nutritious diet with loads of vitamins and minerals, cleaning your teeth twice daily, and regularly visiting the dentist for exams and cleanings can help avert sunken face. If you are at risk for a sunken face because of missing teeth, dental implants can help secure the bones before any damage happens.

A sunken face is usually caused by loss of facial volume due to missing teeth. Without treatment, a sunken face will only get worse over time. It can lead to further complications such as difficulty eating and speaking. You can reduce the risk of it getting worse by seeking dental treatment and restoring your facial features.
