Why You Should Trust Your Dentist With Your Dermal Filler Injections

Why You Should Trust Your Dentist With Your Dermal Filler Injections

Did you know that we offer dermal filler injections at our dental office?

Many people may not have heard the news about dental offices offering cosmetic treatments like Botox and dermal fillers. At Metairie Village Dentistry, Dr. Lisa Wyatt and the rest of our staff want you to be able to enjoy all the treatments we offer. That’s why we’re here to help you understand why you should trust your dentist with dermal filler injections.  

Dermal fillers 101

To get you up to speed, dermal fillers are minimally invasive treatments that can replace plumpness and volume in certain areas of the face. These might include the lips, cheeks, under the eyes, and more. Dermal fillers can help to smooth away wrinkles and to give your face a more youthful look. 

This treatment is painless and can achieve impressive results. In 2020, dermal fillers were the second most popular mildly invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States behind only Botox. Dermal fillers can also be paired with other treatments to create an even more dramatic final look. 

For years, many people believed the only safe way to receive these treatments is from a cosmetic surgeon. Fortunately, your dentist — someone you should already be seeing twice a year — is also getting into the game. 

Dermal fillers and dentistry

Some people express an initial feeling of uncertainty when it comes to having their dentist provide cosmetic treatments. But consider the reasons below to see why you should seek dermal fillers from your dentist. 

Your dentist understands your facial structure 

In fact, there’s probably no one who has a better grasp on it! Dentists aren’t just looking at your teeth and gums but also at the construction of your mouth and face. That makes them extremely helpful for determining how dermal fillers can work for you. 

Cosmetic dental work is already prevalent 

In addition, many people are currently turning to their dentists for cosmetic procedures for their mouths and teeth. Whether it’s veneers or teeth whitening, our team is well-versed in giving people the treatments necessary to feel their best. 

Fillers and dental work can combine for impressive results

It’s true. This study showcased the potential issues that can occur with dental work performed after dermal fillers are placed. As such, wouldn’t you feel safer knowing the same person performed both procedures, allowing them to have as much knowledge of your specific situation to make the best treatment suggestions? 

Fillers aren’t just cosmetic

If you were wondering why dentists are involved in a purely cosmetic procedure, we offer answers. Dermal fillers and Botox can actually be used in dentists’ offices to treat many medical issues. These can include bruxism (or teeth grinding), migraines, and TMJ. In addition, certain dental issues, such as a gummy smile, can be treated with fillers or Botox, making these a great addition to your cosmetic dental procedures.
