Botox and Juvederm
When a patient has a smile makeover, they want to improve the overall appearance of their face and their smile. Your Coral Gables cosmetic dentist can use techniques like crowns, veneers, Invisalign, and tooth whitening to improve the look of your teeth, but Miracle Smiles can also use botox and juvederm or other dermal fillers to help you improve the look of your mouth and face.
Botox is an injectable substance that can be injected in a regular outpatient office visit. Most patients who have Botox have very few complications, but your Coral Gables cosmetic dentist will want to consult with you to make sure that it’s right for you.
Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles where it’s injected, which helps with forehead lines, crow’s feet, and marionette’s lines. The effects of Botox generally last for about four months, but it’s a quick procedure that’s often cost-effective.
For more severe problems (especially with marionette’s lines), your Coral Gables cosmetic dentist might suggest a dermal filler like hyaluronic acid (brand names include Juvederm and Restylane). This is a naturally occurring substance found in your joints and skin. The gel is injected into your face to help give your face a softer appearance.
Dermal fillers are a good solution for filling deep lines, and their effects generally last for about four to six months. They can also be used to plump certain areas of the face like the lips.
If you’re looking to improve the look of your face, you’ll need the best cosmetic dentist in Coral Gables, so call Miracle Smiles today.
