How a Smile Benefits Your Health

by | Jul 11, 2017


In recent years there has been a massive increase in patients taking up cosmetic treatment options, in particular the older generation who previously didn’t have access to modern dentistry.


Beautiful teeth are framed by the lips and face. There are two ways that we can help frame your smile


  1. Botox– An injection to help relax the facial muscles. This makes fine lines and wrinkles, such as frown lines and crow’s feet less obvious. It can temporarily alter your appearance without the need for surgery
  2. Fillers– Fillers can be used to add volume and shape to your lips- look younger within an hour!


Botox and dermal fillers are very popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments, which can reduce your wrinkles and fine lines in a fast, efficient and safe way. Botox is a refined form of botulinum toxin that treats lines and wrinkles in the facial area, such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows. Unlike dermal fillers, which replace the collagen in your skin, Botox is directed at facial muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. More specifically, Botox targets wrinkles caused by continuous muscle movements. The treatment relaxes these muscles, giving your face a fresher appearance.


Dermal fillers on the other hand are used to fill in and plump up lines and wrinkles under the skin. These injections are ideal for reducing the effects of ageing without resorting to plastic surgery. Fillers fill your lines and wrinkles in with collagen. They can also be used to add volume to thin lips and define the contours of your face.
