  • Enhancing Your Appearance with Botox

    Most people think of teeth whitening and veneers when they think of cosmetic dentistry, but you may be surprised to learn that your dentist may be able to help you tackle another woe: wrinkles. During your next dental exam in Newton , talk to your dentist about whether Botox is right for you. You could go home with a brighter smile and a more youthful appearance.

    Botox works by reducing the movement of muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that appear when you make a facial expression, like furrowed brows or squinting eyes. By reducing muscle movement, Botox prevents the skin from folding over and looking wrinkled, so you look younger. Treatment involves a short series of injections and generally needs to be repeated every six months or so for maintenance treatment. Frequently, Botox can be combined with dermal fillers by your cosmetic dentist, which treat static wrinkles not caused by muscle movement, so that you can truly look as young as you feel.

  • Taking a Bite Out of Lines and Wrinkles [INFOGRAPHIC]

    You may not think of your dentist as the person to consult about your skin aging concerns, but in reality, your dentist knows about more than your teeth. Thanks to extensive training in maxillofacial structures, dentists are uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic treatments more often associated with dermatologists, such as Botox. There are several reasons why more and more dentists are adding Botox to their practices. Not only can treatment enhance your cosmetic dentistry results, including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, but it can also help to manage things like TMJ and facial pain. Find out more about the use of Botox by your cosmetic dentist in this infographic from The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill, P.C . We’re pleased to offer our patients the convenience of combining Botox with cosmetic dentistry in Newton at their appointments. Please share this information and spread the word about anti-aging treatments available in the dentist’s chair.
