Botox and JUVÉDERM Frame Your Youthful Smile
Enhancing your smile isn’t just about improving the look of your teeth. Smile enhancement can also include improving the “framework” of your face. After all, what good are having beautiful teeth if people’s gazes are always drawn to your frown and laugh lines?
At our Pearland and Friendswood cosmetic dental practices, we offer a comprehensive approach to your smile revitalization. We can not only whiten, straighten, and repair your teeth—we can also use dermal fillers, such as Botox and JUVEDERM, to create a more youthful, vibrant smile. In fact, if you’re getting a full smile makeover, we highly recommend including dermal fillers as part of your rejuvenation process.
Why do women choose Botox and JUVEDERM treatments?
Moderate to severe wrinkles—such as those frown lines between your eyes and the folds around your nose and mouth—can make you look tired, unapproachable, and older. With Botox and JUVÉDERM treatments, facial folds and wrinkles are significantly reduced, allowing the vitality of your smile to shine through. More than 11 million women have used Botox treatments to enhance their appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox is considered a prescription medication that should only be administered by a trained healthcare professional. Our Pearland dentists offer Botox treatments to anyone who wants to reduce the frown lines between their eyes. Botox is injected into the glabellar area (the muscle that contracts when you frown or concentrate intensely). Botox treatments reduce the muscle activity, leaving your forehead smoother and more youthful looking—for up to four months.
What is JUVEDERM?
JUVEDERM is a dermal filler, and it’s used to smooth away the wrinkles that form around your mouth and nose. In most cases, patients only need one treatment of JUVEDERM dermal filler to receive instant, maximized results. JUVÉDERM is the only FDA-approved dermal filler that lasts up to one year with just a single injection. The injection also includes lidocaine, an anesthetic, to make the administration of your dermal filler more comfortable. Our Pearland cosmetic dentists offer both JUVÉDERM and Botox to help you achieve your smile renewal goals.
Botox treatment for jaw pain
Botox is an effective alternative treatment used for TMJ disorders, bruxism, and other jaw pain. The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is located on either side of the head, where the jawbone meets the skull. The TMJ can become displaced or inflamed through teeth grinding or trauma, resulting in difficulties with talking, eating, and swallowing. Botox is a purified protein that can be injected into the muscles. Botox will relax the facial muscles to help relieve jaw tension and pain. If you are experiencing headaches, facial pain, or other symptoms of TMD, Botox may be the right treatment for you.
