Why choose facial aesthetics in dentistry?

Dental professionals have the training, experience and skills to provide a range of facial aesthetic treatments.
Here, our experts explain the benefits of choosing facial aesthetics performed by dentists and the treatments they provide.

What is facial aesthetics?

Non-surgical procedures that reduce wrinkles and enhance your natural beauty are known as facial aesthetic treatments.

Ageing in our face occurs due to the gradual loss of elasticity in our skin and reduced production of essential natural oils as we get older. Wrinkled or sagging skin can impact our self-confidence, but with some simple treatments, you can reduce the signs of ageing and get your confidence back.

What kind of facial aesthetic treatments do dentists provide?

Anti-wrinkle injections

One of the most sought-after treatments available from dental surgeries is anti-wrinkle injections. These are simple and effective ways to soften wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and fine lines to give a rejuvenated and younger appearance.

Anti-wrinkle treatments are completely safe if performed by a professional and work by injecting a purified protein into the skin using a needle to relax facial muscles.

Dermal fillers

Similar to anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers are injected into the skin to boost your natural look. However, dermal fillers focus on replenishing volume loss in your face caused by collagen loss as you age.

These fillers usually contain hyaluronic acid that mimics the elasticity of collagen and usually targets the mid-to-lower face. Common areas requiring replenished volume include the lips, cheeks and tear troughs that drop as the years pass.

Some dermal fillers can relieve symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders or facial muscle tension by relaxing specific muscles – in doing so facial pain and discomfort are reduced.

The benefits of facial aesthetics performed by dentists

There are several reasons people may opt for facial aesthetics provided by a dentist:

  1. Dentists offer a comprehensive approach: 

Dentists have a deep understanding of facial structures, anatomy, and clinical procedures, allowing them to create a natural and harmonious facial appearance.

  1. Expertise and Safety: 

Choosing a dentist for facial aesthetics ensures that the procedures are performed by a qualified professional. 

Dental specialists have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, ensuring precise and safe administration of injections – they also understand the correct dosage and advise patients on the best-suited treatments for them, plus the potential risks associated with facial aesthetics. 

  1. Convenience: 

For individuals who visit their dentist regularly for check-ups, receiving facial aesthetics treatments whilst there can be convenient. 

It removes the need to use separate providers for cosmetic treatments, which can be time-consuming and require a level of trust you already have with your dentist.
