Why Choose Your Dentist For Cosmetic Injectables and Fillers?

You know that your dentist can enhance your smile with cosmetic dental treatments - but did you know that you can also get a range of non-surgical cosmetic skincare procedures at your dental practice?

From Botox to dermal fillers, many dental practitioners are equipped, qualified and trained to provide a number of cosmetic injectable procedures for people looking to improve their facial appearance and skin quality.

If you’re considering a facial injectable treatment, read on to find out why choosing to have a non-surgical cosmetic procedure at your dental practice is a safe and convenient way to achieve the aesthetic results you’re after.

What’s the advantage of getting cosmetic injections from your dentist?

While you may not immediately think of going to your dentist for a cosmetic ‘tweak’, it actually makes a lot of sense!

Here’s why dental professionals are ideally placed to provide facial injectable treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox injections:

1. They’re highly trained in facial anatomy

Dental practitioners are already trained and experienced in areas such as facial nerves, the vascular system, and facial anatomy, so cosmetic facial injectables are a natural extension of their existing skill-set.

While injectable cosmetics from dentists were once used solely for jaw joint issues such as acute jaw tension or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, they're now available for a much wider range of applications.

2. They know your situation and needs

If you’ve been going to your dentist for a while, they’ll already be familiar with your history and circumstances, as well as the physiology of your face, putting them in a good position to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Unlike visiting a new facility for the first time, you already know you can trust your dental practitioner based on your existing relationship. You’ll also be familiar with the dental practice and its environment, helping you feel more relaxed and confident when you come in for your treatment.

3. You can combine your treatment with other cosmetic dental procedures

Having a cosmetic injectable treatment at your local National Dental Care or DB Dental practice is a convenient option, as you can combine it with any of our other cosmetic dental services - such as teeth whitening or veneers.

By having your cosmetic procedures performed in one place by a dental professional you’re comfortable with, it’s easy and straightforward to obtain the results you want in a way that’s convenient for you.

What types of cosmetic injectables are available at my dental practice?

We offer a range of facial injectables at our dental practices, which are designed to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, age lines, or any other kind of fine lines on your face - leaving you with smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

Two of the most common treatments are muscle relaxants (such as Botox) and dermal fillers.

● Botox is used to treat lines caused by muscle movements (known as dynamic lines), such as frown lines around the forehead and eyebrows.

● Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of static wrinkles - wrinkles that result from depleted or sunken skin, whether or not facial muscles are in motion - by applying extra collagen to the skin.

If you’ve been considering cosmetic injectables to address fine lines and wrinkles on your face, National Dental Care Group can assist you with our safe and professional cosmetic services, carried out by our experienced dental practitioners.

As a first step, we advise you to talk to your local dentist about the different cosmetic options available and which type of treatment might be right for you. To learn more, book an appointment online now.
