Ah, February. It’s that time of the year to celebrate love. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and kisses are everywhere (chocolate ones, too!). We also need to celebrate a fascinating part of our body which helps us to communicate, give and receive love: lips. After all, kisses originate from lips, so we need to give those lips a big round of applause for all the hard work they do spreading the love.

Curtains to our teeth

At Sugar Fix Dental Loft, we view lips not only as sensory organs allowing life-sustaining nutrients to pass through during infancy. Our interpretation of one of the body’s most sensual and sensitive parts of the human body is a bit more figurative. We see lips as the curtains to our teeth. When we smile, the curtains open to reveal a wonderful window of teeth through which  our happiness shines through.

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Jessica T. Emery firmly believes that lips can truly enhance someone’s smile and is passionate about helping people exude confidence and achieve their best smile. Aware of the psychosocial connection between teeth and aesthetics, Dr. Emery is trained in the vascular, nerve, muscle and skeletal components that make up the lips and offers injectable dermal fillers to enhance lip volume and redefine smiles.

Enhancing teeth

Dental lip enhancement procedures work on the same basic principal as many other cosmetic treatments. Underlying structure is enlarged in order to change the appearance of the surface. Teeth support the lips. Enhancing teeth can make the lips appear larger. Support for lips is created by proper tooth arrangement. When you think about it, dentists have more contact with lips than any other medical specialist. Why shouldn’t they become cosmetically savvy and offer lip enhancement treatments at their offices?

Overall appearance

Injectables can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars. Dr. Emery will review oral frame proportions and take into consideration the smile line, high lip line, lip in repose, mobility of mouth tissues, facial proportions and other factors. These components are necessary to ensure that the lips and teeth compliment facial features without dominating your overall appearance.

We all know what a botched lip job looks like (yuck). Trust us, we don’t want you to end up looking like a Real Housewife of Chicago or an Angelina Jolie wannabe. Sugar Fix has your best interests in mind and we want your lips to look and feel natural. Lips that are proportionally over-enlarged are distracting. “Mob Wives,” anyone? No, thank you.
