Yes, an aspect of dentistry that is sometimes overlooked are your facial aesthetics. An appealing, well-balanced facial profile and appearance helps your smile to stand out, and gives you a healthier, more youthful overall appearance.
At Dental Emporium, our dentist offers several treatments to help you enhance your facial aesthetics and improve the appearance of your smile. We invite you to contact our practice to learn more about the treatments to improve facial aesthetics and to schedule your consultation.
When you have completed your dental treatment and have achieved the smile of your dreams, ask our dentist about treatments to improve your facial aesthetics and perfectly frame your new smile! Treatments to enhance your facial aesthetics are usually provided in the form of injectables, such as Botox and fillers, or medical dermal threads and may be provided to address cosmetic concerns such as:
These treatments generally only take a couple of minutes to complete. Often, they do not require any anesthesia, though our dentist may provide you with a local anesthetic if you are receiving your facial aesthetic treatment in a more sensitive area.
In addition to helping you improve your overall appearance, facial aesthetic treatments also help to eliminate or manage TMJ/TMD (clenching) induced headaches, migraines, and facial pain, and can limit the need for surgery or gum re-contouring for patients with “gummy” smiles.
Botox is a neuromodulator that relaxes the treated muscle to soften wrinkles.
Our dentists posses experience, advanced knowledge of facial anatomy, and an artful aesthetic eye, all requirements to place the product successfully.
In order to work with your own natural bone structure, fillers require an artful eye and a skilled hand. The goal is to achieve your own youthful rested appearance while enhancing under eye areas, cheeks, jaw, lips, temples and eyebrows as needed.
Non-surgical “cogged” threads and sutures that have been used for decades in cardiac, abdominal, neuro and plastic surgery. By utilizing similar threads, and inserting them under the skin a lifting and rejuvenating effect is achieved.
Facial signs of aging are a cause of concern for millions of men and women. In particular, lines and wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks and sagging skin on the jawline bring people into our office every day, seeking our help to restore their confidence and help them look as young as they feel. Our nonsurgical and minimally invasive options to combat these signs of aging are effective and seamless, offering our patients a real solution to their concerns while eliminating the complications of full surgical procedures. When it comes to facial aging in particular, our popular PDO thread lifts offer long-lasting rejuvenation that can restore the natural contours of your face without surgery.
At Dental Emporium, Dr. Francois du Toit is proud to provide PDO thread lifts that can noticeably improve your appearance and help you feel confident again. This procedure uses dissolvable threads made of a gentle, body-safe substance to reposition and support aging skin around the cheeks and jawline, delivering results similar to a facelift surgery but with no downtime and minimal side effects. If you are seeking facial rejuvenation but are not ready for cosmetic surgery, then schedule a consultation with Dr. du Toit to learn how a PDO thread lift can help you.
