Crowns, fillings, and dental implants can improve your smile. But some people find that facial cosmetics such as Botox make their faces look even better. Find out how these solutions work.
Very few people visit the dentist due to mouth pain. In fact, only about 15 percent of visits are sparked by oral discomfort. Most people, it seems, visits dentists because they want to look better now or prevent issues that could impact the future beauty of their smiles.
It might surprise you, but in addition to proper oral care, facial cosmetics can change the way your mouth looks and how confident you are in your smile.
These are some of the facial cosmetic procedures we offer in our Florida dental office.
Botox & Your Smile
Wrinkles around your mouth work like arrows pointing to your teeth. A face packed tight with lines suggests a life spent frowning and grimacing. It’s far from attractive.
Botox is a chemical that temporarily paralyzes muscles. Our doctors inject a tiny amount into spaces around your mouth, so your smile isn’t punctuated with wrinkles and lines.
Juvederm & Your Smile
While Botox paralyzes muscles, Juvederm surrounds them with new materials. The result is skin that looks full and plump, so wrinkles are harder to spot.
Benefits of Juvederm over Botox include:
- Speed. Fillers tend to show results a bit faster than paralytics like Botox.
- Length. Neither treatment is permanent, but Juvederm tends to last a bit longer.
- Built-in pain control. Most Juvederm formulations include a medication to ease discomfort.
Choose this method, and your doctor could ease wrinkles and droopy skin that can detract from the beauty of your smile.
Chemical Peels & Your Smile
Needle-free options to ease wrinkles are available through chemical peels. These procedures take just minutes to complete in our office, and you’ll endure no poking and prodding.
Chemical peels can also ease smile killers such as these:
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Sagging skin
Our doctors apply a chemical solution to your skin. The fluid causes your skin to exfoliate and peel, revealing the healthy tissue below.
