Facial fillers and botulinum
Here at Alice Springs Family Dental, we believe that there is a “solution for every smile” and this is not limited to your teeth. We strive to provide you with treatment options that will leave you with a beautiful smile.
Maintain the health of your facial tissues
We are now offering the use of cosmetic injectables. Facial Enhancers include the use of the product Botulinum Toxin. This product can be used for aesthetic & therapeutic applications, by injecting small amounts into targeted areas, such as wrinkles (e.g., Crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead lines etc.),
It can also be used in therapeutic applications, such as nighttime tooth grinding, or “gummy smile”, as it relaxes the overactive muscles of the face.
How long before botulinum toxin begins to take effect?
2 to 6 weeks of your treatment.
How long does botulinum toxin last?
The effect begins to wear off after two to three months. At this stage, we often recommend returning for a top-up.
Muscle Relaxants can help to:
- Reduce the appearance of deep facial creases, lines, and wrinkles
- Reduce clenching and grinding of teeth that may cause other problematic teeth issues in the future including smaller, weaker teeth
- Slim prominent or “square” jawlines
- Reveal more of your smile (gummy smile fix)
- Reduce headaches
Dermal filler injections are a popular and non-surgical way to rejuvenate and restore certain areas of your face that have lost natural volume, shape, fullness, and hydration whilst visibly reducing the signs of aging.
Gummy Smile Treatment
A smile can appear gummy for many reasons. These include:
An upper lip that lifts excessively when smiling
Incorrect proportion of teeth size and shape
Cosmetic injections are commonly used in the dental industry for therapeutic outcomes. We have seen an increase in demand for smile makeovers or enhancements in recent years and modern dentistry now extends the focus on the overall appearance and symmetry of the oral region as well as functional use of teeth.
All injections at Alice Springs Family Dental are performed by our qualified dentist who is highly skilled and is continually receiving education in this area. Also, we are trained with an eye for detail and understand your facial muscle and nervous system are capable of dealing with more complex cases, and perform risk assessments. We can customise your facial contour to compliment your teeth giving you a complete and comprehensive result.
