What makes a great smile? Some would say straight teeth are essential. Others may say the whiter the better. And those are both key factors in a beautiful grin.
But if your thin, wrinkled lips are stealing the focus from your perfect teeth, you may want to finish the job with a quick and easy treatment to plump and smooth them.
Dr. Sargon Lazarof and our team of talented and skilled dental physicians at Sargon Dental offer three safe and effective treatment options that can transform your lips and your smile.
Why would you go to a dentist for cosmetic facial treatments?
Nobody understands your facial anatomy like an experienced dentist. We’re highly trained to navigate the complex structures, including your nerves and muscles, so you can rest assured that your lip treatment is safe and looks amazing.
Here’s how to get the smile of your dreams.
Start with your teeth
Crooked teeth aren’t the only culprits in a less-than-stellar smile. If any of your teeth are missing, misshapen, cracked, chipped, discolored, or decayed, they can detract from your overall appearance.
When you're embarrassed by your teeth, you may keep your mouth shut and not speak up, smile, or laugh. This leads to low self-esteem, which can easily transition into depression.
Fortunately, there are dental treatments that can restore your teeth, including:
Dr. Lazarof, in fact, invented Ultratooth™ Immediate Tooth Replacement System, the first and only FDA-cleared dental implant that’s fully functional when you get out of the dentist’s chair?
Whatever you need to restore your teeth, Dr. Lazarof and our team can do, even a full-mouth reconstruction.
Next, look to your lips
To showcase your dazzling teeth, we offer three types of lip augmentation.
Our dental team talks with you about your aesthetic goals, and then assesses your facial structure and the condition of your skin before developing your customized treatment plan, which may include dermal fillers, fat transfer, or AlloDerm®.
Using a viscous solution of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers restore lost volume in your skin. When we inject it strategically into your lips, they become plumper and smoother instantly.
Because we’re expert dermal filler administrators, you don’t have to worry about ending up with an “overdone” outcome that makes your lips look like overinflated balloons. You walk away with natural-looking, shapely lips that show off your teeth in the best setting.
Like dermal fillers, fat transfer replaces lost lip volume, but this treatment uses a small sample of your own fat from somewhere else on your body. The procedure takes a little longer (about an hour) than a dermal filler injection, but the results last longer, too — potentially a lifetime.
AlloDerm isn’t an injectable, rather, it’s a small graft of sterilized donor tissue that provides a natural matrix of connective tissues. We shape and size the tissue to your exact specifications and implant it into your lips.
AlloDerm not only increases volume, but allows us to alter the height and shape of your lips.
All three treatments are extremely safe and proven to deliver results that look and feel natural.
Finally, face your face
Once your teeth and lips are picture perfect, don’t forget your face. Yes, we help there, too. You already know we offer dermal fillers, so while we’re at it, we might as well add back a little volume to your cheeks and chin.
And for those stubborn expression lines carved into your forehead, between your brows, and at the corners of your eyes, we offer Xeomin® injections.
When you’re ready for a smile overhaul, trust the dental experts who know your face well. Schedule an appointment by calling any of our three offices in Encino and West Hollywood, California, or Pleasant Grove, Utah, or book your visit online today.
