BOTOX ® Cosmetic

Not only can Botox cosmetic treatments reduce the appearance of wrinkles, they can also be used to complement your cosmetic dental procedures. Botox is efficient at relieving pain from TMJ problems. It can also help reduce the appearance of “gummy smiles” to provide our patients with a more youthful looking smile.

This cosmetic service is incredibly quick, often less than 10-minutes, and requires no recovery period. The procedure requires a few tiny injections that block nerve impulses which cause the affected muscles to become paralyzed. This decreased muscle activity helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet as well as treats the dental issues mentioned above.

Our doctors are specially trained and certified to administer injections with both cosmetic solutions. As a result, you can look forward to enjoying a younger-looking appearance that will enhance your confidence and self-esteem.


What Is BOTOX ®?

It is a cosmetic treatment that can help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. That’s not all BOTOX can be used for, though. We may also recommend treatment if you struggle with migraines, TMJ dysfunction, or routine teeth grinding (bruxism).

When used specifically for wrinkles, BOTOX works by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses responsible for creating wrinkles in the first place. Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and comes with little to no downtime or recovery. Afterwards, you can look forward to enjoying your results for between four and six months.
