Enhance your smile further with Botox and dermal fillers

At Portland Dental, our dentists understand how important a beautiful smile can be. We also know that imperfections across the face, such as the development of fine lines and wrinkles, can detract from an otherwise attractive smile. If you have completed cosmetic dentistry and want to finalize your youthful, stunning appearance, you may want to ask Drs. Cameron Schwab and Kaveendra T. Ranasinghe of Portland, Oregon, about the benefits of using Botox injections and dermal fillers to combat the unwanted signs of aging.

What are Botox and dermal fillers?

Botox is an injectable muscle relaxant used to soften wrinkles and fine lines on the face. When injected into facial muscles, Botox works by temporarily paralyzing them, allowing the skin to smooth out and providing a more youthful appearance. Results typically last for up to four months.

Alternatively, dermal fillers are injectable gels composed of hyaluronic acid that restore volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, and jawline. Dermal fillers also reduce deep wrinkles and creases across the face without surgery or downtime. Injections usually last around six months, but results may vary depending on the type of dermal filler used.

Am I a candidate for Botox and dermal fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers may be an attractive option for you if you have wrinkles or sagging skin around the mouth, eyes, forehead, and other parts of your face. However, candidacy depends on various factors, including age, lifestyle habits such as smoking or excessive sun exposure, and overall health. The best way to determine if cosmetic injectables like these are appropriate for your needs is to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists at Portland Dental.
