About Injectable Fillers
At Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we work to enhance the smiles, confidence, and lives of our patients daily by providing best-in-class care. As leading dentists and members of the American Academy of Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Richard Caron and Dr. John Kenney have extensive training and expertise in the oral and maxillofacial regions and are excited to offer the aesthetic enhancement options of BOTOX, Juvéderm, and similar dermal fillers. These minimally invasive cosmetic injectables are often utilized to replace lost facial volume and even out sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines in order to create a younger-looking facial appeal. They can also be added to a treatment plan to complement cosmetic dental procedures for a total smile makeover and aesthetic transformation and improve TMJ and chronic facial pain. To decide which products are right for you, we encourage you to contact Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for a private consultation with doctors Caron or Kenney.
The best candidates for injectable fillers would be anyone seeking to minimize the presence of wrinkles and fine lines in facial areas without undergoing a surgical facelift. BOTOX is used to relax facial muscles and may be suitable to temporarily smooth deep lines or wrinkles around the eyes and in the forehead area. However, the benefits of BOTOX extend beyond aesthetics and are often used by our team to relieve TMJ pain, headaches, and tension from jaw clenching. Juvéderm and other dermal fillers are often ideal in improving symmetry around the lips, the fit of dentures, and cases of high lip lines, as well as minimizing the appearance of laugh lines around the mouth. Utilizing our extensive knowledge of the muscles engaged in oral function, we can often enhance comfort and appearance through the use of BOTOX and Juvéderm injectables.
Before your dermal filler injections, doctors Caron or Kenney will meet with you to gain insight into your desired results and decide which product will best help you meet your goals. We can also determine exactly where these products should be administered to deliver the best possible results for your comfort and aesthetic results. As experienced dentists, we routinely administer anesthetic to our patients and have advanced expertise. Our technique for administering oral injections is quick and second-to-none, which allows us to place BOTOX and Juvéderm with minimal discomfort to the patient.
What to Expect
Injectable fillers are performed as an in-office procedure with the entire process taking about 5 – 15 minutes to complete. The results are noticeable almost immediately, and you will generally require little to no downtime afterward. While you may notice minor swelling and bruising immediately after the injections, these symptoms should fade within a few short days. BOTOX results can complement your appearance for up to four months while the lasting effects of Juvéderm fillers average around 4 – 6 months. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.
Make Wrinkles Disappear
If Father Time is taking a toll on your facial appearance, but you are intimidated by the thought of major surgery, then injectable fillers may be the answer you seek. BOTOX, Juvéderm, and other dermal fillers from skilled Tupelo, MS dentists doctors Caron and Kenney can create youthful, voluminous skin and may be the perfect complement to your aesthetic dental treatment plan. In some cases, BOTOX may also provide relief from jaw joint discomfort and chronic facial pain.
