Dentists with patient in a dentist chairAfter investing a good deal of time in a project most people will go that extra mile to make sure the final finishing touches are in place, whether its tasteful trinkets to complete a home renovation or some stylish garden furniture after the landscaper has done his work. So when it comes to a smile, what finishing touches can patients expect to find on offer at a dentist in Southampton?

For patients who have diligently taken care of their oral health and invested in cosmetic dentistry to iron out those last few kinks in their smile, but still can’t quite put their finger on what’s missing from their new-look smile, they can find help at a Southampton dentist. Smilemakers is one of several dental practices in the area that provides facial aesthetics treatments on top of their usual preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Facial aesthetics can enhance the appearance of the face to better compliment the smile.

Why Go to a Dentist for Facial Aesthetics?

A dentist is uniquely skilled to administer facial aesthetics treatments as they have a detailed knowledge of all the tissues that comprise the face, from muscles and nerves to tendons, ligaments and skin. They are also well trained in dental procedures, many of which require the use of injections and a high degree of manual dexterity. Together these skillsets make it easy for a dentist to apply facial aesthetics treatments safely, effectively and importantly to produce natural-looking results.

What’s on Offer?

Two of the most common facial aesthetics treatments available at a dentist in Southampton are Botox and dermal fillers. Botox temporarily paralyses the nerves that cause certain muscles in the face to contract, specifically those that cause wrinkles. This results in a smoothing out of wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers meanwhile plump out hollows and grooves to restore a more youthful appearance to the face.
