Similarities: Facelifts & Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic  Dentistry and Plastic Surgery, although seemingly  different,  have   distinct  similarities. Brandon Plastic Surgery offers facelifts for tighter skin appearance. Dr. Saylor, at The Healthy Dentist, offers tooth whitening, veneers, and dental implants. How are these options similar? Read on to learn how facelifts and dentistry can overlap:

  1. Limits Aging Effects

With time and use, the teeth begin to yellow or color. Tooth enamel can wear down and create an undesirable yellow hue. Also, as we age, wrinkles form around the face. Wrinkles form from repeated muscle use – smiling, laughing, or from the wear down of Collagen, the skin’s plumping ingredient. Whitening can minimize the visual effects of tooth age; face lifts minimize the effects of skin age. Both procedures minimize facial signs of aging to create a more desirable appearance.

  1. Limits Erosion

As teeth age, tooth enamel can erode, leaving cavities and cracks in the teeth. As skin ages, collagen breaks down leaving lines and cracks in the skin. While crowns and dentures cover erosion, facelift injections like Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane also minimize lines and creases in the skin.

  1. Creates Facial Profile

Finally, some patients chose dentistry to correct overbites and under bites. In addition to causing pain or discomfort – bites can affect jaw and mouth appearance. By correcting these overbites, dentistry offers patients a more defined jaw profile. A liquid facelift, likewise, offers more defined facial profiles and shaped appearance. Dermal fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane alter volume and skin appearance for patients’ facial profile.

Both liquid facelifts and cosmetic dentistry can limit the signs of aging, minimize erosion, and can create a more desirable facial profile. Patients interested in learning more can call (813) 681-5709 for a consultation at Brandon Plastic Surgery.

Ways Fat and Filler Injections Affect Smiles

After an appointment at our office, patients can choose teeth whitening, dental implants, or veneers for cosmetic appearance. Brandon Plastic Surgery, located near the practice, also offers cosmetic procedures. Patients can choose fat or filler injections for their facial appearance. How can injections affect smiles? Read on for smile affects:

After achieving a whiter smile, patients may desire to show it off. However, some patients may desire more emphasis around their mouth than offered by dentistry alone. Fat injections, a procedure correcting severe volume loss, can emphasize the mouth area and offer a more noticeable smile.


Patients may also desire to combine their smile for further cosmetic appeal. At Brandon Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shienbaum offers dermal fillers, or injectable  skin gel treatments, to minimize wrinkles and shallow areas of the face. When injected near the mouth, patients can experience a new facial appearance; alterations to the mouth and teeth can create their desired facial appearance.


Some may experience an increase in confidence after their dentist appointment. Patients can smile more easily knowing their teeth are clean, white, or straight. After fillers are applied during a cosmetic appointment, some patients report similar feelings. Patients can experience more confidence about their smile and overall facial appearance.

Brandon Plastic Surgery offers fillers including Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse,  and   Botox    Patients interested in injections are encouraged to call ahead and learn more about skin options. During a consultation, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shienbaum can determine if facial options can create the skin, and smile you desire.
