There is no doubt that going to the dentist for regular treatment is vital for people of all ages for their health and wellbeing. Aesthetic Dentistry is a term that commonly refers to procedures that can help enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile; however aesthetic dentistry is more than just braces for teenagers and Invisalign. Did you know that dentists are trained on the anatomy of the head and neck and how the facial muscles work? That is why some will perform cosmetic treatments as well as traditional dentistry. As Expat Dental’s Facial Aesthetics doctor at its Novena Medical Center clinic, I provide treatments that aim to enhance your total look.
I treat with products like muscle relaxants and dermal fillers with an aim toward projecting health, vitality and confidence, as well as a beautiful set of teeth. It is well known that muscle relaxants, are used to reduce the appearance of crows feet and frown lines on the forehead, as well as deep lines around your mouth, but it can also be used to give definition to your jaw line and help shape your face to achieve the slimmer V-shape. I use and injectable in an effort to reduce high smile lines and relax the larger jaw muscles. Clenching these muscles often results in headaches and grinding teeth, injectables can reduce the associated ill-effects on your teeth and on your daily wellbeing.
Dermal fillers are used to smooth the appearance of lines and provide volume and structure to the face. As we age, collagen is often lost and this can produce a sagging and sunken look in some facial areas. Using fillers around the mouth, in cheeks, jawlines, lips and eyes, can help to boost lost volume and possibly reduce lines and sagging. Careful use of these fillers can rejuvenate your facial appearance with surprising results.
Living in Singapore provides us all with wonderful opportunities for travel, leisure and outdoor family fun, but the tropical, sunny climate can often take its toll on your skin’s health. I take a conservative approach to facial aesthetics as part of a patient’s overall wellbeing. I listen carefully to your concerns and discuss all available options before joint
