The human ageing process results in the reduction of the amount of body tissue and volume in the face that can now be treated by specially trained dentists with Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers. Frown lines on the forehead, ‘crows’ feet at the corners of the eyes, creases and vertical lines around the lips are caused by muscle contraction under the skin surface, which also increases with age.
For many years now the treatment of facial skin folds, facial wrinkles, creases etc. was performed by Plastic and Cosmetic surgeons, Dermatologists, general medical practitioners, cosmetic nurses and occasionally suitable qualified beauticians. In countries outside Australia, cosmetic dentists have been performing these Anti-Wrinkle and Dermal Filler treatment procedures and more recently, Australian dentists have started to be trained in these techniques locally and abroad.
Whether a tooth is lost due to infection or injury, the bone in that area is no longer stimulated without natural chewing forces and begins to shrink almost immediately. Significant bone loss occurs within the first year, which is why tooth replacement should not be postponed. Bone deterioration does not stop at the area underneath the missing tooth; it can progress to the bone under healthy teeth, creating further tooth loss.
This is exactly how the loss of one or two teeth can negatively impact your appearance and accelerate the aging process. Since the facial changes occur gradually, you may not notice them right away, but the skin around your jaw and chin will likely start to sag and your cheeks may become sunken. Tooth loss can age you 10 years or more!
Porcelain veneers and implants may sound like an excessive solution for a complaint of thin lips, but the amazing benefits of this cosmetic dentistry procedure go far beyond lip plumping. Porcelain veneers and implants will make you look younger, healthier, wealthier, and smarter. Veneers correct the gaps and imperfections, make stains disappear. Porcelain veneers and Implants are designed to reshape your teeth and extend them – these are the “magic” solutions that allow your lips to rest differently on your teeth and makes your lips appear fuller.
Dental implants affect more than just the appearance of your smile—they also improve oral health. As soon as you lose a tooth, you are at risk for further tooth loss, jawbone deterioration, and facial collapse. Facial collapse not only changes the shape of your face, but makes you look older. Fortunately, Dr Vu can help you find a solution that works for your smile.
You can opt for injectables or fillers. But, ultimately, the most long-lasting, natural-looking solution to thinning lips lies behind your smile – improving your teeth.
Combining a combination of treatments will give you the best long-term outcome and ultimately achieving your beautiful!
Before we begin any extensive procedures, it’s important that you come in for a consultation. During this consultation we will be able to discuss your existing dental concerns and any past dental health issues that you may have experienced. This is important in order for us to understand any past work that has been done, as it can help shape our options moving forward. Of course, if you’ve been with our practice for a while this process will be much easier.
The next stage of your consultation will involve discussing the work you’d like to get done and exploring your options. During this part of our consultation we’ll examine your lifestyle, your desired treatment plans, your treatment requirements, your budget and see how they all mesh together. From here, we’ll develop a treatment plan which, depending on the extent of treatment required, may need to take place over several appointments. Once we have a viable treatment plan, the next stage is simple – getting the work done.
