What is the Use of Dermal Fillers in Dentistry?

Do you find yourself looking in the mirror and wishing that your cheeks were a bit plumper, your lips were a little fuller, or the dark circles under your eyes weren’t quite as noticeable? You’re not alone! Many adults suffer from a lack of facial volume, which can result in a lack of self-confidence.

What are Dermal Fillers?

The lips and wrinkles around the mouth are some of the common areas where fillers are used. As we age, the skin in these areas tends to become dehydrated and less firm. Dermal fillers are often used to plump up these tissues and restore volume in the face. They are also used to enhance certain facial features, such as the cheeks or chin.

There are different types of dermal fillers available that are suitable for different parts of the face. Some of these fillers are permanent, while others are temporary. Knowing which type of filler to use requires training and skill on the part of the dentist. There are also other types of facial rejuvenation procedures that can be done using dermal fillers, including lip augmentation, cheek lift, and jaw slimming.

A consultation is scheduled before the procedure to discuss the patient’s aesthetic goals and to learn more about their medical history. During the procedure, the area of the face is cleaned and numbed using a topical anesthetic to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. Small amounts of the filler are then injected into the desired areas. If you have any questions regarding the use of dermal fillers in dentistry, schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist in your city.

How Are Dermal Fillers Used in Dentistry?

For patients with minor imperfections in the appearance of their smiles, such as minimal wrinkles and fine lines, small pits or depressions, mild gum recession, and small tooth chips, dentists may recommend the use of dermal fillers to correct these aesthetic concerns. These thin gels of hyaluronic acid are injected into the targeted areas and provide immediate results by giving patients fuller and more luscious lips, smoother skin around their mouth, and even whiter teeth. The gels are biodegradable, so once they dissolve, they leave behind no trace of the filler itself. This also ensures that the results are temporary and only last for about six months before the patient will need another session to maintain the results. This treatment is quick and very non-invasive for patients to receive at their dentist’s office. It can even be done during a lunch break from work! Patients can enjoy their new look right away without having to wait weeks or even months to see results.
