Have you always dreamt of a more beautiful smile? Nowadays, cosmetic dentists will not only make your teeth more beautiful, but will also help beautify the rest of you face. If you have fine lines or wrinkles you might want to consider additional cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers.
At Hertford Dental Care, we offer dermal fillers to improve and enhance your facial characteristics. Dr Gordon Black and his dedicated team know that restoring beautiful smiles can change lives. That’s why we provide patient-focused cosmetic dentistry using innovative treatments and high-quality materials.
Dermal fillers are injections that help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. They are made of a gel-like substance that when injected, replaces the natural ingredients of the skin which are lost because of ageing. Dermal fillers are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and nose, as these areas of your face tend to show the greatest signs of ageing.
Once injected, dermal fillers soften your fine lines and wrinkles, smooth away the expression lines around your mouth and replace soft-tissue for a polished look. The main component of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, a synthetic version of the body’s own natural substance. When we age the amount of hyaluronic acid produced by our body decreases significantly, leaving the skin prone to wrinkling. Dermal fillers hold back this process by adding volume where it has been depleted.
What should I expect before and during the treatment?
Dermal fillers in Hertford do not require any preparation and can be completed in one visit to your dentist. The gel is injected into specified areas of your face with the use of a fine needle, immediately lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines.
Are there any side effects?
Dermal fillers are considered one of the safest cosmetic treatments available. They are made of high-quality materials which are compatible with the human body. A local anaesthetic may be used to minimise discomfort during the treatment, but generally, side effects such as swelling and redness are rare.
