People say a smile changes everything.
A smile says everything about you. Your confidence, professionalism, health, perception at work, social life and even romantic status can be displayed in a smile.
If you find yourself wanting to cover up your smile when taking photos, you could be holding yourself back in more ways than you realize.
Chipped, missing teeth, discoloured teeth and yellow fillings are unveiled when your lips part to smile, so people simply avoid it.

At Tooth Heaven in Kensington and Flemington, these are used for a variety of reasons. Dr Jolvin Lee is one of the lucky few that has been trained by the Australian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics (AADFA), an association that is strict and stringent on the safe administration of injectables. He now safely regularly performs these in Kensington and Flemington.
According to the Medical Board of Australia (2015), the top 3 reasons for the use of facial injectables in Australia are:
Treatment of TMD*
Anti-wrinkle facial injectables is used as an adjunct to other treatments ( splint theraphy, physiotheraphy ) for the treatment of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles associated with soreness and discomfort, this relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, facial injectables can even minimize lock jaw.
Treatment of Gummy Smiles*
Gummy Smile is a condition characterised by the presence of excessive gum tissue when smiling. It can be corrected effectively via a simple cosmetic treatment that uses only Muscle Relaxant Injections.
Other Cosmetic Treatments*
Facial Ageing and Skin deterioration is a multifactorial problem requiring different approaches for treatment. It is important to continue the use of homecare products and skin rejuvenation strategies in addition to Anti Wrinkle Facial Injectables and Dermal Fillers. A consult with a Dermatologist is also suggested in addition to any Injectables and Dermal Fillers performed anywhere.
The best thing to do is to have a chat with our Dentist to see if these injections are suitable for you.
