  Botox in Dentistry

          People who are interested in a complete smile makeover may consider several dental procedures in order to achieve a Hollywood smile, but in some cases dental enhancement isn't enough in order to correct the effect time has in our skin, particularly in our face. Taking the factors in consideration the cosmetic dentists have decided to add yet one more service to their already extensive list of services, Botox application.

          Using dermal fillers in conjunction with Botox can provide the best results when it comes to age reversal. The application of Botox is virtually pain-free and compared to other treatments is a very effective nonsurgical wrinkle removal technique which is available to patients who not only are interested in oral anesthetics.

          A few of the advantages of Botox provides is that its price and is very low compared to other procedures which are meant for wrinkle removal and age reversal, the entire process only takes few minutes and there is virtually no recovery time involved, this makes it very attractive to people who did not want to spend time recovering after a painful surgery and it's also equally appealing to people who like to see fast results without risking their health.

          Common areas where Botox is applied are: forehead, lips, neck, etc. these are usually areas where thermal collagen has worn off, and where a little extra boost is much needed and immediately noticeable.

          When this procedure is combined with a professional smile makeover a patient may appear to be 10 to 15 years younger, this is a very realistic estimate. These age reversal techniques are often used by Hollywood stars who need to look young and invigorated basically at all times, everyday people would be impressed by the dramatic changes that a combination of cosmetic dentistry and dermal fillers can have in a person.

          Those who are concerned about how safe Botox really is should know that the FDA approved the substance back in 1989 and in the year 2001 alone around 1.6 million people use this substance for cosmetic purposes. Botox relaxes the muscles and prevents them from causing wrinkles or lines in our skin which is why many people prefere this non-invasive procedure over surgery.


Are you unhappy with your gummy smile?


          Most think there is nothing that can be done for a gummy smile, or have only heard about a surgical procedure to remove excess gum tissue. However, there is a much more simple solution to this problem: Botox!

           Dr Priscila is able to strategically place Botox injections so that your upper lip relaxes and does not pull up as much when you smile. This temporarily reduces the appearance of a gummy smile.

          Botox is an easy non-surgical application that reduces the dynamic wrinkles produced by time. It loosens the muscles leading to creases for 4 or 6 months by a twenty minute application. It becomes effective within 5 – 8 days. As it is an easy and fast application that does not require a recovery period, many people return back to their work and daily life. We determined the area where injection will be made in order to receive the best result. To every part of application Botox is applied at little dosages by injection. Application time is approximately 20 minutes. You can return back to your normal activities immediately.
