A person’s smile can make them look younger and more youthful. But some people are not confident about their smile because of lines and wrinkles around your mouth, thin lips or dingy teeth. From plumper lips to professional teeth whitening, there are many ways to improve or enhance your smile.
Fill those lines and wrinkles
Aging, sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle all play a role in the appearance of our face. Over time, our faces lose fat under the skin, which means facial muscles work closer to the skin’s surface, making smile lines and other lines and wrinkles more apparent. The skin also loses elasticity and sags, making the loss of volume even more apparent.
Dermal fillers are popular non-surgical treatments that patients love because of their fast results that last several months and little to no downtime for recovery. They plump thinner lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles and more.
There are several types of fillers that address different areas of the face. Some of the more popular fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that helps add back structure and volume to the face. Hyaluronic acid injections like Juvederm and Restylane are often used to plump the lips and address the area around the mouth, these fillers improve the appearance of nasolabial furrows, which are smile lines that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They help soften the marionette lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin. They also improve the appearance of vertical lines on the upper lips and lower lips that are due to age or smoking.
Whiten your teeth
Nothing ruins a good smile more than dull, discolored teeth. Teeth whiteners can take years of the teeth by removing stains and rejuvenating the color of your teeth.
