Long known for their cosmetic benefits – Botox, for releasing wrinkles, and fillers, for restoring lost volume – many people aren’t aware that these injectables can positively impact your smile, as well. At My Cherry Creek Dentist, we’d be happy to discuss these minimally-invasive enhancements with you.
What Is Botox & How Does It Work?
A purified form of botulinum toxin, tiny amounts of Botox are used to soften wrinkles, as well as to treat blepharospasm (uncontrolled eye twitching), migraines, carpal tunnel, excessive sweating, and more. Paralyzing the muscles at the injection site, the liquid is safe, effective, and lasts for approximately three to six months.
What Is Filler & How Does It Work?
Designed to add volume and fullness to areas that have thinned with age, dermal fillers are often comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in certain body fluids and tissues, and is known to add a plumping effect to skin. Fillers may also contain calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral-like compound found in bones, or polylactic acid, polyalkylimide, or polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres, all of which treat a variety of aging signs. Plumping effects last between six months and two years.
How Can These Injections Benefit My Smile?
Along with imbuing a more youthful and refreshed facial effect, these injections can benefit patients who experience issues with TMJ (temporomandibular joints), teeth grinding (Bruxism), adjusting to new dentures, and those looking to soften a high lip line/gummy smile.
