Facial Aesthetics

Complete Dento-Facial Aesthetics – Beyond Beautiful Teeth

Cosmetic Dentists are among the only people to be able to offer a complete approach to facial aesthetics.
By first setting solid foundations through establishing optimal oral health and aesthetics, Dentists then add “Anti-wrinkle injections” such as “Botox” and “Dysport” , “Dermal Fillers” and “Skincare enhancements”, in the same appointments, to complete the picture, making treatment less painful, more convenient and more comprehensive.Instead of facial aesthetic treatment being disjointed and leading to compromised results, Dentists ensure that lines are softened, lips are enhanced and skin health is optimised to compliment the aesthetic dentistry done in the mouth.
treatment options

Anti-wrinkle injections uses in aesthetic dentistry:

Dynamic lines caused by the action of the muscles of facial expression can artificially age a person and have a significant impact on self-esteem. Botox and Dysport Injections relax the action of the underlying muscles and minimise the resulting lines on the skin.

Traditionally, lines appearing on the forehead; between the eyes (glabellar region); and around the eyes (crow’s feet), have been the most common areas treated for aesthetic reasons, however the number of new uses for this remarkable substance has expanded substantially and now includes other areas of direct importance to cosmetic Dentists.

The treatment of TMJ disorders, tooth grinding (Bruxism), “gummy smiles” and many other conditions caused by undesired muscle action, can now be made simpler and less invasive through the use of anti- wrinkle injections.

Owing to superior knowledge of facial anatomy; daily practical experience dealing with the functional and aesthetic aspects of muscles of the face; and an ability to provide accurate and comfortable injections; Dentists are among the most qualified people to be providing facial injections.

Uses for Muscle Relaxant Injection

Bruxism

Bruxism/Hypertrophy

Injections can be used to treat the masticatory muscles in cases of Bruxism/TMD/Facial Pain and to soften a square jawline.

Gummy smile

Gummy Smile

The hyperactive lip muscle can be relaxed during smiling, reducing the excessive lip elevation and eliminating the "Gummy Smile".

Forehead lines

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines can be softened - Dentists should now look at the frame that surrounds the teeth to complete the picture.

Fine lines

Peri-Oral Lines

Fine lines around the mouth can be reduced by the injection of facial injectables in this area.

Frown lines

Frown Lines

Frown lines between the eyes can be improved dramatically.

Asymetries

Asymmetries

Treating the DAO muscle can help to correct aesthetic & functional asymmetries caused by various neurological & muscular deficiencies.

Crows feet

Crow's Feet

Peri-orbital lines (crow's feet) are caused by smiling and can be relaxed with facial injectables.

Dermal Fillers

Uses for Dermal Fillers in Aesthetic Dentistry

As we age, the skin loses elasticity, volume and structural support which leads to the formation of deep lines, grooves and folds – especially around the mouth. In addition to this, our lips, which are perhaps the most prominent aesthetic feature of our face, begin to lose volume and become thinner and less well defined. Naso-labial and Marionette lines are formed by skin folds running between the nose, mouth and chin. These furrows are among the first to appear on the aging face, and together with lip enhancement, are the primary areas treated by Dermal Fillers to improve facial aesthetics.

Dermal Fillers are a temporary treatment method, that provide immediate results for eliminating these facial lines. They consist of a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies and is therefore broken down by natural means and is hypo-allergenic.

Realising that the result of aesthetic dentistry are limited by the condition of the facial tissues surrounding the mouth means that Dermal Filler treatment is the logical next step for Cosmetic Dentists wishing to frame their artistry. Dentists must use aesthetic principles to harmonise the dentition; muscles of mastication; lips, cheeks and nose – undergoing Dermal Filler courses will allow a truly holistic approach to facial aesthetic enhancement.

Uses for Dermal Filler by Cosmetic Dentists

Beautiful Lips

Beautiful Lips

Beautiful lips dress up a beautiful smile and no one is more qualified to enhance a persons lips than a Dentist.

Naso Labia lines

Naso-labial Lines

Improving the appearance of soft tissues around the mouth should be a priority for Dentists wishing to enhance the patients overall appearance and achieve optimal results.

Oral defects

Intra-oral Defects

Dermal Fillers can be used to correct dark spaces around implants or crowns, easily and safely. Until now, this has been a difficult problem to correct.
