BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injection treatment that is commonly used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles between the brows (known as glabellar lines). However, in addition to aesthetic facial rejuvenation, BOTOX® Cosmetic is also used to address a variety of dental issues, such as:
- TMJ/TMD: You use your temporomandibular joints every day to chew, speak, yawn and swallow. When these jaw joints are out of balance with your teeth and facial muscles, you may experience painful TMJ/TMD issues such as headaches, ear pain, shoulder aches and more. BOTOX® Cosmetic can mitigate many of these unpleasant symptoms.
- Bruxism: Chronic teeth grinding (bruxism) can lead to severe headaches, aching jaws and ear pain. Customized mouth guards can be worn to ease the effects of bruxism, but BOTOX® Cosmetic is another option. It can relax the muscles responsible for teeth grinding and relieve a number of associated symptoms.
- Gummy smiles: There are a number of factors that can cause the appearance of a gummy smile. In some cases, gummy smiles are the result of hypermobile lips (lips that contract too far when you smile). BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax these muscles and reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. During your initial consultation, we will determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic or other gum recontouring treatment is best for you.
- Asymmetrical smiles: While surgery used to be the only way to correct an asymmetrical smile, BOTOX® Cosmetic has recently become an effective alternative to surgery in some cases. It relaxes lip muscles and can provide a more proportionate smile.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been proven to successfully treat a variety of conditions caused by muscle overexertion. Numerous issues, such as uncontrollable blinking, excessive sweating and chronic headaches have been effectively treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Visit The Smile Centre to learn more.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic utilizes botulinum toxin A to block the nerves responsible for dynamic wrinkles, Juvederm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body, to fill in facial wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and add volume to the cheeks and lips.
Juvederm can also be used to treat dark gaps that occasionally emerge on the sides of teeth after periodontal treatment, implant therapy or dental crown restorations. These dark gaps, sometimes referred to as “black triangles”, can be eliminated with Juvederm. The unique Juvederm formula does this by adding volume to the gums and creating attractive gum contours.
There’s no denying that your lips play a role in the appearance of your smile. Juvederm Volbella is a cosmetic injectable treatment designed to shape and define the lips. Using a smoother, more delicate formulation than other Juvederm products, Volbella is ideal for subtly plumping the lips, diminishing vertical lip lines and softening lines beneath the eyes. The formula is smooth and soft, providing results that are elegant and natural-looking.
