Dentists are highly trained in facial anatomy, and with additional training in Botox administration, a dentist can be your partner in achieving your ideal look. Cosmetic dentistry is more than just a smile — a true smile makeover takes all of your facial details into account to give you natural, predictable results.
Botox and dermal fillers can help enhance your smile makeover by reducing lines around the lips, lines around the mouth and nose, and even the jowls and chin. Dr. Leah Butler is a Strongsville, OH dentist administering Botox treatments and Juvederm and Restylane dermal fillers to patients looking to enhance their natural look.
Why Have A Dentist Administer Botox?
As a trained and experienced dentist, Dr. Butler has a unique and in-depth understanding of the musculoskeletal structure of the face. She can place injections strategically to minimize your discomfort and maximize your results. Patients also appreciate the convenience of both completing a smile makeover in our office and being able to monitor or touch up their results every 6 months during routine dental visits
Is Botox FDA-approved?
Botox is FDA approved to temporarily treat wrinkles and has been used for cosmetic purposes for nearly 20 years. Botox works by relaxing the muscles around the eyes and in the forehead that cause deep expression lines. The results of Botox can last up to four months. Botox is also FDA approved for the temporary relief of headaches and can be used to alleviate TMJ pain.
How Do Juvederm and Restylane Work?
Juvéderm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most popular compound for restoring lost volume and fullness to the face. Juvederm is used to target wrinkles and facial folds in the smile zone including the marionette lines (parenthesis) and smokers lines (tiny lines around the lips). Juvederm can be used to improve the appearance or fullness of the lips and correct symmetry issues.
