Smiling is important to your emotional health. Each smile releases endorphins and helps you relax, but not everyone is comfortable bearing their grin. As a cosmetic dentist, Doctor Mason O. Miner restores your oral health, but that’s not all. He’s aware that a stunning smile is about more than just having a beautiful set of teeth.
Finding Your Full Smile
Psychiatric researchers describe two different types of smiles. Social smiles are those that involve just the muscles of your mouth. Most people use this type of smile when nervous or faking a laugh.
A full smile looks natural. The muscles of your entire face are included. Your eyes smile along with your cheeks. You may not believe it, but most people naturally distinguish between the two.
If you aren’t in the habit of smiling often, you should start. Smiles improve your emotional wellbeing and send positive social signals to others. Here are few exercises to help you practice:
Maybe you’ve noticed lines of age forming around your mouth and temples. Wrinkles and lines form when skin loses its natural elasticity. It’s a normal part of aging, but Doctor Miner can help you restore a more youthful appearance and attractive smile.
Our Laughter Treatments
We use several products to help smooth out your skin. Botox and Xeomin are prescription drugs applied to the muscles of your face. They help the facial tissues to relax. When tension is removed, the skin smooths itself down, and the flatter features of your face appear more natural.
We also treat your wrinkles with dermal fillers. These help to replenish the collagen levels of your skin to repair the damage from aging. They also puff the skin up to make it appear fuller and more vibrant.
At our office, we go beyond treating just the teeth in your smile. Contact us to make an appointment, and ask about our skin rejuvenating treatments.
