You may be surprised to know that at Crawford Leishman Dental, we offer more than just dental maintenance and restorations. We are highly passionate about helping all of our patients love the appearance of their smiles. We know that having a beautiful smile that you love will boost your confidence and help you live an overall happier life. Over time it is common for patients to develop wrinkles or saggy skin around the mouth and skin. Wrinkles around the mouth can have a substantial impact on how you view not only your face but your smile. Being a modern dental practice, our goal is always to offer our patients the most up-to-date and newest treatments. One of these treatments is dermal fillers.
What are Dermal Fillers?
If you are unfamiliar with facial injections and dermal fillers, please do not worry. We will walk you through it. Dermal fillers are a thin, gel-type substance injected under the skin to help the face have a more full or tighter appearance. Fillers are completely medically safe and are used in different medical fields worldwide. Although it may seem new to you to hear of a dentist doing dermal fillers, we would like to help you see why seeing the dentist for your filling needs is practical.
Dentists are professionals and experts in facial muscular and bone systems. They need to know each area, the nerves, and the muscles to properly treat their patients. When it comes to dental fillers, dentists are the people to see.
Who can get a Dermal Filler?
The skin needs collagen and hyaluronic acid to remain firm, wrinkle-free, and smooth. Unfortunately, with age, there tends to be fewer of these substances. When there is little to no collagen or hyaluronic acid, the muscles and skin become less elastic and start to wrinkle or even sag.
Any patient who feels like they would benefit from dermal fillers can reach out to our office and see how it can help them specifically. Please give our Vineyard, Utah dental office a call for a consultation appointment.
How Dermal Fillers will Enhance Your Appearance
- Remove Unwanted “Lines” or Wrinkles: Lines can appear on your face in multiple places, but the first ones to appear typically go from your nose down to your mouth. Next are the frown lines. Our dentists can restore volume within the skin with dermal fillers to help these lines disappear.
- Enhance Jawline: If you are unhappy with the appearance of your jawline and chin, we can use fillers to add volume. With more volume, they will become sharper and more defined.
- Close Tooth Gaps: If you have a small gap at the base of two teeth and want them closed. The small amount of gum tissue between each tooth can be injected with dermal fillers to close the unwanted gap.
- Fill Your Lips: Along with your skin elasticity, lips can become less defined and thinner as you age. It would be best to take advantage of dermal fillers for a more plump and defined lip.
