“What we call facial enhancement has the ability to improve your smile as well as your surrounding facial features. We find that this boosts results for our clients and satisfaction after treatment.”
— Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd
A person’s face can depict years of smoking, years of sun damage and simply just the years they’ve endured. Some people are lucky enough to have resilient skin that remains perky and vibrant but most of us are not that lucky.
Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd now offers facial enhancement as part of a smile lift to help minimise the signs of ageing on your face as well as straighten your teeth.
It would be ignorant to think that the appearance of your smile doesn’t have a connection to the appearance of your lips and rest of your face. This is why Boutique Dental Care created the ‘Smile Lift’ as an anti-ageing treatment which uses cosmetic injections to minimise the appearance of wrinkles and prevent further wrinkles from forming. The cosmetic injections used are also referred to as dentofacial aesthetics as they improve the overall dentofacial area.
Everyone knows that as you get older problems like crow’s feet and smile lines can distinctly show that you’re ageing. The specific problem areas we treat include:
We can prevent lines in these areas with anti-wrinkle injections which are preventative, as well as reduce their appearance with fillers which restore volume.
A popular area for filler treatment is also the lips which can appear thin and pursed with age. Fillers can plump your lips and decrease the appearance of lines to improve their appearance and the way they frame your smile.
Many people want to look younger but they don’t want to have to undergo surgery, which means they resort to anti-ageing creams which most of the time are ineffective. A smile lift can give you a younger looking appearance while preventing further wrinkles and lines possibly even more so than the best anti-wrinkle creams.
Gummy smiles can also be treated with the same formula used for anti-wrinkle injections. These are muscle relaxants which subdue the movement of muscle. Some people’s gummy smiles are caused by an overactive lip muscle which reveals too much gum. In order to stop this from happening muscle relaxant injections are used to minimise this movement. But don’t worry – you’ll still be able to smile!
Your smile lift treatment plan can also entail any of our other cosmetic procedures including teeth whitening, veneers and Invisalign. All of these procedures work towards improving the overall appearance of your smile and when used in conjunction with facial enhancement you can completely transform the way your face looks for a younger appearance.
