Life brings happy times, smiles and laughter. But there’s also the stress caused by work, busy family life and juggling everything else we need to do. Over the years, both happy smiles and stressed frowns eventually start to form facial wrinkles.

As we get older, these laughter lines and frown lines become more noticeable and they won’t fade away without a little invisible help.

A dentist can do more than create a beautiful smile

When choosing your cosmetic injector, your dentist may not seem the most obvious choice. Here are the reasons why your dentist should be your first choice:

! Dentists are experts in facial anatomy. They have spent a minimum of four years at university learning the ins and outs (quite literally) of how facial muscles interrelate. That’s why they have a great understanding of the best injection sites into muscles to achieve your desired outcome.

! Dentists are highly skilled injectors. Dentists hold a needle in their hand more often than they hold a pen! They have a gentle and precise injection technique that comes from many years of experience. This means you’ll be comfortable throughout your procedure.

! Dentists are perfectionists and artists.  Throughout their university degree, dentists are highly trained to create symmetry and achieve optimal cosmetic outcomes — not only for your teeth, but also to the overall appearance of your face.

! Dentists can give a dental block before lip-filler treatment, meaning you will be pain and discomfort free!

! Convenience. Who has the time to see multiple different practitioners? Everyone is so time-poor these days! Think of us as your one-stop for all things dental and injectables! Many of our patients add on their injectables appointment to their routine check-ups with us!

! Discretion. No one will know… you are just coming in for your routine dental appointment — right? !” {smiley face}

Can every dentist do cosmetic injectables?

It is important to note that just because someone is a dentist, it does not mean they have been trained in cosmetic injectables. To be able to this, a dentist must have undergone additional training.

At Shine Bright Dental, Dr Jason offers this additional service to our patients. While he is a born perfectionist, Dr Jason takes a conservative approach with his cosmetic injectables. He is all about naturally enhancing your beauty, there are no overdone duck lips in sight here!

What do anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers do?

Anti-wrinkle injections: Anti-wrinkle injectables are used to soften or disappear frown lines and crows’ feet. They can also be used to relax overactive muscles, such as the masseter muscle (your jaw muscle), if you suffer pain due to teeth grinding.

Dermal fillers: As we get older, our skin becomes thinner because we have less collagen and elastin. Dermal fillers are used to add volume and to recontour areas of your face where the skin has lost flexibility.

The effects of anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments last for months.
