Wrinkle-free smiles from your dentist
Depending on your mood, your face can alter in shape and appearance dramatically. If you look into a mirror, you can change your normal facial characteristics completely, by making a range of different facial expressions, such as laughing or frowning. That’s because your face can activate up to 43 muscles to express these emotions on your face.
Over time, the repeated movement of these facial muscles creates wrinkles and lines. These can form naturally between the muscles, as your skin tissue starts to sag, and lose its elasticity and collagen content. For example, you may form “crow’s feet” around your eyes, or “laugh lines” around your mouth.
Everyday lifestyle factors including sun exposure, fatigue, stress, smoking and dry skin may also contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines.
There are now anti-wrinkle treatments that can help smooth out and reduce the depth of wrinkles for more youthful-looking and rejuvenated skin. These injectable treatments are popular alternatives to surgery, and can slow down the effects of aging.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are simple cosmetic procedures that relax your facial muscles which results in smoother overlying skin. The same treatment can also used to treat oral conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) or teeth grinding (bruxism), by relaxing involuntary and overactive muscle movement.
Why see a dentist for anti-wrinkle treatment?
Receiving anti-wrinkle treatment from your dentist, as opposed to a beautician or plastic surgeon, has numerous benefits.
Your dentist is professionally trained in cosmetic dentistry, and has relevant technical knowledge of your face and neck anatomy, as well as its underlying muscle function and structure. Dentists already utilise an understanding of facial aesthetics, in order to give you a beautiful smile.
By combining cosmetic dental treatment with anti-wrinkle treatment, your dentist can ensure that both treatments complement each other – to create a natural-looking and harmonious smile and face makeover. Your dentist uses injectables carefully, thus avoiding the over-use of these treatments that can result in that tell-tale frozen look.
There is also the added advantage of achieving your smile and face makeover under the guidance and supervision of one practitioner, all under the one roof. This can also save you time and money.
Before commencing anti-wrinkle treatment, your dentist will provide you with a full consultation – to understand your unique needs and reasons for enhancing the appearance of your smile and face.
