It surprises some people when they realize that one of the best places to go for Botox and dermal fillers is their cosmetic dentist. But when you think about it, who better to work on the facial structure than a dentist who spends so much time learning about the anatomy of the head, neck, and mouth?

If you have already undergone cosmetic dentistry procedures to turn your smile into one you love to show off, why not give yourself a refreshed look overall with Botox or dermal fillers at Lake Erie Dental in Erie, PA?

Botox Cosmetic

Botox injections work by freezing the muscles that have become wrinkled through years of contractions, giving the skin a smooth, youthful look. This treatment has been approved by the FDA, so patients can rest assured of its safety.

Areas of the face where Botox is commonly used include:

  • The “angry 11” lines that form between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • The horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Wrinkles on the sides of the nose
  • To improve the look of a smile that exposes too much gum

In addition to its cosmetic uses, Botox injections can also be used to treat the pain of TMJ, migraines, and teeth clenching.

The effects of Botox usually last around six months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be either natural or synthetic, and they are injected into the skin to plump up the skin in that particular area. They are often used in conjunction with Botox for remarkable results without surgery. For most people, the results last for three to 18 months.
