Many patients come to The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC, looking for a cosmetic solution for their teeth, but are surprised to learn that this office also offers cosmetic treatments for the skin. You can get a dermal filler treatment in the same chair where you get your teeth whitened. Find out what fillers can do for your face, your smile and your overall appearance.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
A filler is a special formula made of hyaluronic acid, calcium and other substances that help to fill out lines and wrinkles in the skin for an extended period of time. The filler is injected into specific areas of the face to help give the skin a smoother, tighter and younger appearance. Patients who come to The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC, for smile makeovers are happy to learn that they can also get this cosmetic treatment for their skin.
What Can Fillers Do for You?
Dermal fillers can help take years off of your face. Here are a few issues that this treatment can address:
- relax wrinkles
- fill in crow’s feet around the eyes and lines around the mouth
- tighten nasal labial folds
- make lips look fuller
Getting a younger looking face and a younger looking smile at your dentist’s office can do wonders for your confidence.
A Relatively Quick Appointment
If you and your dentist decide that dermal fillers are right for you, you'll be happy to learn that the appointment will be relatively short and simple. You’ll lay back in the dentist’s chair as the injections are carefully administered over the course of about 15 minutes. Beforehand, your dentist may administer a local anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable. The results can last up to 18 months.
