We offer Botox and fillers (Juvederm and Voluma) as an adjunct to our dental services.
Botox can be used as a wrinkle treatment to smooth
- Frown lines
- Crows feet
- Forehead furrows
- Skin bands on the neck
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible with a smoother surface, Botox® Cosmetic treatment does not radically change your facial appearance. You are able to show full expression without wrinkles and creases.

How BOTOX® Is Injected
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be administered in the office by appointment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is freshly prepared on the day of injection. Once prepared, the medication needs to be used within 12 hours, as the potency diminishes with time. Small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected into the facial muscles using a very tiny needle.
You may be a candidate for Juvedérm®if you have wrinkles on your face or around your lips that you wish to diminish.
Juvéderm® is approved by the FDA for volumizing and correcting deep folds and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (the “smile lines” between the nose and the corners of your mouth).

Can Juvéderm be used for lip enhancement?
Yes! We often recommend Juvéderm Ultra Plus for lips because of the softness it provides for lip enhancement. Many women worry that getting lip injections will make them look like a duck, but having Juvéderm injected in the lips can be quite subtle.
Juvéderm VOLUMA™ XC
Cheek enhancement for a youthful shape (and a little lift!)
We’re excited to give you another great filler option to help you get glam!
Juvéderm VOLUMA™ XC is a brand new, FDA-approved injectable gel designed specifically for adding lift and volume to all 3 areas of the cheeks: the apex, the apple, and the hollow.
How does VOLUMA™ work?
VOLUMA™ is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), the same soft, natural gel-like substance found in the popular wrinkle filler Juvéderm XC. Because the particles of HA are structured a little differently, VOLUMA™ can be injected more deeply underneath the skin and over a larger area. These unique properties make VOLUMA™ excellent for adding very natural looking shape and volume to the entire cheek contour.
Is VOLUMA™ a good option for you?
VOLUMA™ can be a great treatment option to help you achieve a more youthful facial contour if your cheeks look a little flat or hollow due to aging.
It can also help patients of any age add balance to their facial features if they’ve always wanted more definition to their cheeks.
How long does VOLUMA™ last?
VOLUMA™ has been clinically proven to last up to 2 years when administered by an experienced, qualified provider. Just like Juvéderm XC, it is absorbed naturally and harmlessly by the body over time.
These long-lasting effects make it a great cost-effective alternative for shaping the cheeks, providing a happy medium between facial implants and less durable filler options that aren’t specifically designed for the cheeks.
