Dermal fillers and anti-line and wrinkle muscle relaxants (neurotoxins) can be delivered pain free at the dentist!
It is only relatively recently that dentists have begun delivering cosmetic treatment outside the mouth- specifically for the face!
Nothing could me more logical as few Doctors give as many injections or have a better understanding of head and neck anatomy. We regularly assess and address dental cosmetic issues and nothing can be more satisfying than getting the “frame” around the teeth right!
Dermal fillers can be a painful procedure, but not at the dentist! What’s more, patients enjoy the anonymity of the dentist as opposed to going to a dedicated beauty clinic.
Dentists are at the forefront of stringent infection control procedures and we know our patients pretty well from treatment over the years – not many people visit any other medical practitioner more often. So we can discuss and consult on potential outcomes without the need for another formal visit and consultation.
There are any number of facial areas of concern that respond to fillers and muscle relaxants. These include especially:
Gummy Smile – dropping the top lip to cover the excess gum
Lips – lines around the lips
Chin and Jaw-line - having a continuous firm jaw line and filling out hollow cheeks
Accordion and Marionette lines – filling out those annoying little lines and creases which tend to be present whether you are smiling or not
Naso-Labial Folds – the 2 skin folds that run from the nose to the mouth that contribute to an aged appearance
Face Shape – many female patients benefit from a softer shape to their face.
Dermal Fillers are considered minimally invasive and can often produce immediate results. Results last between 9 – 18 months on average.
Neurotoxins can be used as a muscle relaxant to soften a a mouth frown or to mitigate against teeth grinding or bruxism.
