Cosmetic Botox and Facial Dermal Fillers

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile’s appearance, and sometimes, that means more than just correcting an issue with your tooth structure or the symmetry of your gum line. For example, the facial features that surround and are related to your smile also have an important impact on its esthetics. At our office, we can recommend Botox treatment and/or dermal fillers to help you smooth out and improve the appearance of things like frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet around the eyes, and more.

What is Botox?

Injectable Botox has been a popular facial rejuvenation technique for decades, and today, it’s being used increasingly more often for cosmetic dentistry treatment. Botox works by reducing or eliminating the nerve impulses that cause these facial muscles to contract so severely, which can slow or stop the development of these lines. Depending on your specific needs, we may recommend Botox as a safe, quick, and effective solution for preventing or addressing frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, loose skin on the face or neck, an overactive upper lip muscle that contributes to a gummy smile, and more.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Instead of lessening nerve impulses in your facial muscles, a dermal filler is a proactive solution for smoothing out wrinkles and lines that have become highly noticeable. With the safe, biocompatible filler material, we can uplift your facial features instantly, restoring your youthful appearance in about 30 minutes (on average). Dermal fillers may be used in conjunction with Botox and one or more other cosmetic treatments for optimal smile makeover results. Dermal fillers can also be utilized to create fuller, plumper lips, either as a stand-alone procedure or to fill out your smile as part of your smile makeover.
