Have you noticed some wrinkles forming around your mouth or eyes? Aging is such a natural process that we often don’t realize it’s happened until we look in the mirror one day and notice all the changes. As we age, our skin begins to thin out, causing wrinkles to form. These wrinkles can deepen, sometimes affecting the appearance of our smiles.
Luckily, there are modern-day solutions to this age-old problem. Crestview Family Dental is pleased to offer Botox injections and soft tissue fillers that will smooth out wrinkles and lift your smile.
How will Botox help my smile?
Botox, or Botulinum toxin, is commonly used to essentially stiffen and paralyze sagging skin. In dentistry, Botox injections are used to augment several treatments, such as high lip line.
Your lip line is where the lower part of your upper lip is when you smile. For some people, that line is higher up than normal. Botox injections can help relax that strained area for a more natural looking smile.
Botox is most commonly used to freeze areas of the skin prone to wrinkles. In addition, Botox can be used to help patients adjusting to dentures and for lip augmentation.
What Are Soft Tissue Fillers?
Botox works by freezing muscles to prevent wrinkles or creases caused by natural facial expressions. Soft tissue fillers essentially “fill” or plump up areas that have begun to sag or have lost smoothness. They are commonly used to temporarily correct fine lines around the mouth.
Most of us don’t consider how correcting lines around the mouth or even enhancing the mouth itself will benefit the overall appearance of our teeth. Dr. Anderson uses soft tissue fillers primarily to plump up lips. Healthy, lovely teeth framed by well-rounded lips makes a patient’s smile all the more dazzling.
