Dental Botox and Fillers White Plains

DENTAL BOTOX

Botox is produced by botulinum toxin. It often surprises people that Botox is used medically as well as cosmetically.
Dentists have been using Botox for years to help improve their patients' health and smile. Dentists have an advanced knowledge of facial and oral anatomy, thus making excellent botox injectors.

How can botox be used to treat our dental office in White Plains?

Below are some ways we use botox at our office in White Plains can be used to treat a variety of conditions.

  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) disorder causes patients to clench and/or grind their teeth, which then results in clicking when chewing or talking, headaches and potential damage to teeth. Botox treats TMJ by preventing patients from clenching their jaws subconsciously. Patients have noticed that aside from relieving pain and discomfort, their faces and jaws are slimmer, narrower and have a softer appearance.
  • Bruxism
  • Headaches - Strategically placing botox in the face, head, and neck reduces the frequency and intensity of headaches. Patients have also noticed a reduction in facial wrinkles.
  • Gummy Smile = Our qualified dentist at our white plains office (switch out for each location) can inject botox into the lip muscle thus reducing the distance that the upper lip lifts when you smile and therefore reducing the amount of gum tissue that is revealed.

    DERMAL FILLERS

    Dermal Fillers are often overlooked in dentistry but more and more offices are using them for their dental benefit. Cosmetic dentists use dermal fillers to improve the appearance of the mouth. Since a cosmetic dentist has expertise in the soft tissues of the mouth inside and out, they are able to administer fillers to the lower part of the face.

    Dentists can use dermal filler to:

  • Remove marionette lines - these are the lines that run from the nose to the mouth. Following these are the frown lines, which run down the sides of the mouth. These are formed when the muscle and skin around the mouth lose their firmness.
  • Close a gap between teeth - our qualified dentists can use dermal filler at our White Plains office to add volume to the little piece of gum tissue between the two teeth. If that piece of tissue is too small it can leave an unsightly gap between the teeth. Adding dermal filler can help the appearance of a gap between teeth.
  • To enhance the shape of the chin and the jaw - people with weak chins can visit a dentist to increase the size and definition of their chin with dermal fillers.
  • Create fuller lips - your lips become thinner and less defined as you age, luckily, your dentist can improve your smile by creating fuller lips with dermal filler at our office in White Plains
