Why combine facial aesthetics with cosmetic dentistry?

Posted on 10th October 2016

A person’s smile is often the first thing we notice about them. A nice smile can be friendly, youthful and attractive.  Straight, white teeth enhance your appearance, that’s why people are often searching for the perfect smile.

Latest advancements in dental cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign, teeth whitening and veneers mean that it is possible to transform people’s smile. Now that patients teeth are able to look a lot better, isn’t it time to look at the area around the mouth as a whole to really achieve the desired aesthetics?


Cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics


Smile cosmetics should no longer be limited just to the teeth; it should combine the lower face as a whole. The teeth do not stand alone; they are only part of the smile story. We now realise that aesthetic dentistry does not begin or end inside the lips.

Perfect teeth need to fit into the desired framework of the face

While as cosmetic dentists, we work at getting straight, white teeth with perfect proportions, if a patient is unhappy with sagging nasolabial folds, marionette lines or drooping corners of the mouth, then their aesthetic result will never be achieved.

Restoring lost volume with dermal fillers

Dermal filler treatment restores the lost volume to the facial tissues. As people age, collagen levels deplete resulting in deeper lines and folds in their face. Dermal fillers have been widely accepted to correct this aging process. They are easy, quick acting, reasonably priced and reversible. Dermal fillers are primarily used for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips and cheekbones.


Dermal filler placed in these areas plumps and freshens the skin reducing lines and wrinkles, creating a more youthful appearance. Natural lip filler treatment can make a huge difference to the end result of any cosmetic dental case.
