Botox & Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers are two cosmetic injectable therapies that can enhance your experience with dentistry and boost your self-confidence. They make slight, nonpermanent changes to your smile’s appearance that pick up where cosmetic dentistry leaves off. 

Botox and fillers are two entirely different products, though they can accomplish some similar goals to one another. Botox works by inhibiting small muscle movements in your face. Paralyzing certain muscles with Botox causes the creases in your skin to disappear while the product is active.

Central Avenue Dental uses Juvéderm Voluma fillers, which lift and augment regions of the lower face. They contain a gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid that safely holds volume before dissolving within your tissues. 

What are the benefits of Botox and fillers in dentistry?

Botox and fillers let you make alterations to the facial features that frame your smile. You can choose to get them alongside your dental work, or after your dental work (like a smile makeover), to:

  • Minimize fine lines (Botox)
  • Boost volume in your cheeks (Voluma)
  • Minimize large lower face wrinkles (Voluma)
  • Contour your cheeks (Voluma)

Sometimes, dental services affect the way your face looks. Losing teeth can lead to the appearance of sunken cheeks, and the muscle tension you experience with mouth pain can emphasize some of your smaller dynamic wrinkles. 

Fortunately, Botox and fillers can make adjustments to rebalance your face and restore a more youthful smile. 

What should I expect while getting Botox and fillers?

The processes of getting Botox and fillers at Central Avenue Dental are quite similar. They start with a consultation where you can express your concerns and undergo a brief evaluation. Your dentist decides which product to use and where to place the injections. 

After coming up with a strategy, your dentist cleans your skin to remove any lingering makeup and dirt. Then, they administer a series of tiny injections using a fine needle. Your appointment lasts for 1-2 hours, so be sure to set aside plenty of time during your day. 

Your face might be a little sore, stiff, or swollen for a few days, but any discomfort subsides quickly. You can expect Botox results to last for 4-6 months and filler results to last for up to two years. 

Botox and fillers make your smile even more stunning than cosmetic dental treatments can on their own. To set up a consultation for cosmetic injectables, call either location or book online today.
