You smile with your whole face, not just your teeth. By seeking cosmetic dentistry in Bernardsville, you may come to realize that the appearance of your teeth is not the issue. Instead, your smile may be best improved by addressing the wrinkles that tend to appear around your mouth, forehead, and eyes.
At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we can help with all aspects of your smile. Our cosmetic dentists are trained in removing lines from your face with the help of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. To set up an appointment with our Bernardsville cosmetic dentists today, call (800) 672-8518.
BOTOX® Cosmetic in Bernardsville
Ever since it was approved by the FDA for erasing forehead lines in the early 2000s, BOTOX® has remained one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. Injections of Botulin in the forehead muscles stop them from moving involuntarily, causing lines in the forehead to smooth out after a few months. And in recent years, the injections have been approved for even more uses.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to:
- Smooth out wrinkles in the forehead
- Stop eyelids from twitching
- Reduce excessive sweating in the armpits and elsewhere
- Prevent migraine headaches
- Treat neuromuscular conditions that cause the head and neck to spasm
- Help ease problems with crossed eyes
Many people go to a cosmetic surgeon for BOTOX® or dermal fillers, but not all cosmetic surgeons are equal. Some may spend most of their time working on liposuction or breast implants, and not actually have much experience with the delicate muscles in the face. On the other hand, the cosmetic dentists at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville are well-acquainted with the musculoskeletal structure of your face, and know how to deliver excellent results.
Dermal Fillers: Restylane and Juvederm
While BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles beneath your skin, dermal fillers treat the skin itself. As their name suggests, they fill your facial skin with hyaluronic acid (HA), an ingredient that naturally occurs in your skin but is produced less as you age. By increasing the HA in your skin, dermal fillers restore your face to a youthful smoothness.
Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville uses two dermal fillers: Restylane and Juvederm. Each uses hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient, and each is approved for addressing different cosmetic issues with the face.
Restylane is approved for:
- Smoothing out nasolabial folds (lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Removing marionette lines (lines that extend downward from the corners of the mouth)
- Removing lipstick lines (lines above the upper lip)
- Treating the corners of your mouth
- Enhancing the appearance of your lips
Juvederm can be used to:
- Correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the mouth
- Augment the lips, enhancing their appearance
- Restore volume to hollow-looking cheeks
There are several different types of each dermal filler that may be used to treat specific facial issues. To learn more about which facial rejuvenation option is best for you, you should talk to a professional from Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville.
