When you think of injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvederm, you probably think of plastic surgeons and dermatologists, but did you know our cosmetic dentist in Bernardsville also offers these age-defying products? Dentists are not new to injectables. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used to treat TMJ Disorders (TMD), migraines and headaches, and to enhance the results of a smile makeover. In fact, a cosmetic dentist could be the best option for facial injectables as these medical professionals have a detailed understanding of the jaw and overall facial structure.
In the past, dentists have focused on improving the functionality and appearance of your teeth and addressing malocclusions with orthodontics. However, your smile is only one aspect of your facial appearance.
How Our Cosmetic Dentist Uses Injectables to Complete Your Smile Transformation
Once you’ve finished cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, we can incorporate the tissues around your mouth and use injectables to address these issues:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lipstick lines
- Wrinkles around the corners of your mouth
- A gummy smile
- Forehead wrinkles
- Sunken cheeks
- Eyelid twitching
- Head and neck spasms
- Crossed eyes
Additionally, our dentist, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb, offers lip enhancement with hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers such as Juvederm. Dr. Patti just completed another New Jersey State Board of Dentistry Approved Course in Neurotoxin and Dermal Filler Facial Injectable Training Course in March 2017.
Plastic surgeons and dermatologists often have specialties such as breast surgery or acne scarring, but cosmetic dentists have a unique advantage due to the deeper understanding of the musculoskeletal facial structure.
