What’s new in dentistry today?

Published on

For many years dentists would promote their practices as “Cosmetic Dentistry”. To many, the term cosmetic dentistry would mean the use of veneers to make the front teeth look whiter and healthier, or the use of composite restorations instead of the silver, amalgam fillings. Today, when the term “cosmetic” is used, it also needs to include “facial esthetics”. It is not correct to separate the teeth and their appearance, from the smile or even the rest of the face. The entire facial structure needs to be evaluated when you want to achieve that perfect smile.
Unfortunately, as we age, changes occur not only to our teeth and gums, but also the muscles of the face.
As these muscles relax, facial tone and fullness diminish and wrinkles develop. To achieve optimal esthetic
goals this needs to be addressed as well, not only the broken yellow front teeth. With the use of Botox and Dermal Fillers, a more youthful beauty can be restored to your face and your new smile will radiate even better.
Millions of people use Botox and Dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance, while still having the freedom of expression. Not only is Botox used for esthetic purposes, it is very helpful for people who suffer from TMJ syndrome, chronic migraine headaches, and other types of facial pain.
Botox is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks signals that cause muscle movement, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
An attractive smile can significantly improve your image and self-confidence. Total facial esthetics will bring out your full beauty potential.
