As dentists, we have received extensive facial anatomy training and education, making us the ideal experts for administering botox & dermal fillers.
We have hands-on experience of how to treat the oral and maxillofacial regions and are qualified to give these injections in a highly precise and safe way. You can also work with us to develop a complete smile transformation treatment plan.
Botox and fillers can be used for cosmetic reasons or to alleviate unwanted side effects like pain. While a traditional injector may be able to help you with your fine lines and wrinkles, we have more knowledge of Bruxism and TMJ and know exactly where to make these injections to help relieve your discomfort.

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your personal smile goals, and discuss how Botox, dermal fillers, or a combination of the two may be able to help you achieve your unique vision. Additionally, if you’re experiencing jaw pain, we’ll find out if Botox can help relieve your discomfort.
Once we’ve decided on what treatment is best for your unique situation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that covers the initial set of injections, as well as any follow-up appointments. Botox treatment generally lasts between 3-6 months, while dermal fillers can last much longer depending on the type of filler that is used.
The procedure is similar for both Botox and dermal fillers. After cleaning and sanitizing the treatment site, a thin needle is used to inject the materials into the target areas. You and your doctor will decide if you require any numbing for the procedure.
Most Botox & dermal filler treatments can be done in under 15 minutes!
Dental bonding lasts on average for 3-10 years depending on wear and tear. Each individual has different oral hygiene practices and lifestyle habits so the longevity of the bonding can vary greatly. To increase the lifespan of your dental bonding:
Dental bonding is a painless minimally invasive and cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. No anesthesia is required in most cases. It’s one of the most affordable cosmetic procedures and is a great alternative to veneers and dental crowns.
It also enables you to improve the aesthetics of your teeth without removing a significant amount of enamel from your teeth. Bonding can also close small gaps between the teeth without resorting to costly and lengthy orthodontic treatment. Patients with sensitive teeth can experience some relief with tooth bonding by sealing exposed nerves.
Botox & fillers haven’t always fallen in the same sentence as dentistry - but there’s no reason they shouldn’t! Botox minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while fillers create volume and elasticity.
These cosmetic alterations only require a few small injections that take as little as 15 minutes! Plumping the lips and cheeks and reducing the appearance of crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles can do wonders for your overall smile.
Not only do Botox & fillers have tremendous aesthetic effects, but Botox can also be used to treat TMJ and teeth grinding. If you suffer from tension headaches, jaw pain, and other radiating pain from clenching or grinding your teeth, a few injections into the forehead, temple, and jaw muscles.
Because Botox blocks nerve signals from reaching the muscle, it prevents muscle contractions which reduces facial expressions that cause wrinkles. When injected into the right areas, it can also prevent your jaw from contracting in a way that causes you to grind or clench your teeth.
Instead, these muscles are effectively frozen so you don’t grind your teeth and suffer from the pain-related consequences of Bruxism and TMJ.
Yes, Botox and dermal fillers are considered very safe when injected by a Board-Certified professional who has received ample training in the use of these treatments. Both Botox and Fillers are FDA-approved and are only administered in very small doses.
Side effects are rare and very minimal, such as numbness, tingling, or some slight bruising. To ensure you don’t experience unwanted side effects, follow your dentist’s instructions, do not lay down for at least 6 hours after the treatment, and don’t massage your face. Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body that promotes hydration and is great for the skin.
