Renew Your Face and Your Smile!
Millions of people use Botox and Dermal Fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance, while still having the freedom of expression. An attractive smile can significantly improve your image and self-confidence and involves your entire face. Total facial esthetics will bring out your full beauty potential.
Botox and dermal fillers can be as essential to esthetic dentistry cases as are porcelain veneers and composite resins. The soft tissues around the mouth are as important as the color and position of the teeth in determining the patient’s smile.
Botox is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
Within 3-5 days of the Botox injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.
Botox injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for 3-6 months.
Benefits of Therapeutic Dental Botox
The cosmetic benefits of Botox are already well established, but dental botox uses are starting to gain serious momentum. Dental botox can assist with:
Headache pain resulting from muscle tension in the head, face, and neck
Headaches resulting from bite issues such as TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Syndrome
Persistent clenching and grinding of the teeth
“Gummy” smiles due to over-retracted upper lips
Upside-down smiles (as it takes more muscles to frown compared to smiling)
Lip lines and puckered chins
In just one short appointment, you will immediately see the esthetic results which can last up to six months. Call us today to schedule a Botox consultation!
