While you’re investing time and money into a great-looking smile, shouldn’t you make sure that the rest of your face looks great, too? Our Nashua dental office is certified to provide facial aesthetics for our patients, including dermal fillers. We believe this is just one more way that we can help our patients look and feel their best.
As we age, getting wrinkles is almost inevitable. Years of sun damage, muscle movement, tension, gravity, and other things can take a toll on our skin, leading to fine lines and wrinkles.
If you have a smoking habit or suffer from acne, you probably have some pretty bad wrinkles and lines on your face that make you appear older than you really are. Filling them in with a dermal filler will take years off your appearance.
Fillers from the dentist?
Even though it seems strange to some to visit the dentist for facial aesthetics and dermal fillers, a dentist understands the facial anatomy more than most physicians and can make skillful injections that are comfortable and produce natural-looking results.
Our dentists completed a Board-approved training course in facial aesthetics to learn how to safely and effectively administer these treatments to our patients.
As an added convenience, we can offer touch-ups as needed during your bi-annual visits for routine dental care, making it effortless to maintain a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Why not choose a dentist to fill in your wrinkles to give you beautiful skin to match your beautiful smile?!
About Dermal Fillers
Chances are you already know that dermal fillers are used to smooth away wrinkles in the face. There is a lot of science behind each particular brand, and our office has carefully selected products that are proven safe and effective and deliver safe, natural-looking, and long-lasting results.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most popular compound for restoring lost volume and fullness to the face. Juvederm is used to target wrinkles and facial folds in the smile zone, including the marionette lines (parenthesis) and smokers lines (tiny lines around the lips).
Juvederm can be used to improve the appearance of the fullness of the lips and correct symmetry issues.
How to Get Started at Levesque Dentistry
Dermal fillers are available for patients of Levesque Dentistry. If you are interested, please let us know at your next appointment. Consultations for dermal fillers are complimentary.
You will meet with the dentist, who will evaluate your facial condition and recommend the treatment that is best for you. In some cases, we may be able to perform treatment on the same visit, or we may schedule a separate appointment at a convenient time.
With Juvederm, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines. Most patients only need one treatment to achieve ideal wrinkle smoothing. You will see optimal results within two weeks that last up to four months, and the results of Juvederm will continue to improve over time and last from 6 months to a year, on average.
Dermal Filler FAQs
Do missing teeth cause wrinkles?
Missing teeth can cause wrinkles in your mouth and cheek areas. This is because missing teeth allow for your jack to shift and ascend. Leaving missing teeth untreated can cause wrinkles, resulting in an older appearance.
How can I prevent my skin from sagging after tooth extraction?
Patients can prevent their skin from sagging after a tooth extraction by replacing missing teeth promptly after the extraction. Scheduling a replacement procedure before your extraction is a good way to ensure that you replace any gaps before sagging begins.
Will dental implants lift my face?
Dental implants have been known to prevent jaw collapse. Implants are able to preserve facial structure, which can result in face lifting.
Does not wearing dentures cause wrinkles?
Wrinkles commonly form around the mouth and your facial muscles are not supported by dentures. You’ll be able to speak more clearly and eat more comfortably with dentures. If you do not wear dentures, and are in need of them you are more prone to wrinkles.
Do dentures make your face cave in?
Wearing dentures can cause bone loss, especially in jawbones. This may give an effect of your face “caving in”, but this is not very noticeable and takes years of bone loss for it to occur.
Will I look old with dentures?
Many people fear that dentures will make them appear older. This is not true. Dentures give patients a real looking smile, while also adding support to your jaw and facial structure to prevent sagging and wrinkles.
