Why see the dentist for Botox or Dermal Fillers? 

Cosmetic dentistry is about more than just your smile. 

Combining your dental treatment with Botox and dermal fillers allows us to give a
natural-looking enhancement to the appearance of your whole face. Botox and
dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, can improve the appearance of lips, fine
lines, and even jowls. 

Botox is not only used for cosmetic reasons. Treatment with Botox has been 
shown to improve symptoms of migraines and tension-type headaches and reduce clenching 
and grinding of your teeth as well. 

As a dentist, Dr. Gretchen Kelley understands the facial anatomy extensively. She can give skillful                                                      injections that are comfortable and produce natural-looking results. You also have the option to be                                                numb for your dermal filler injections which greatly increases your comfort during the procedure. 

About Botox and Dermal Fillers 

Botox is FDA-approved to temporarily treat fine-lines on the face and has 
been used for cosmetic purposes for more than 20 years. Botox works by 
relaxing the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles. The results 
of Botox can last up to three months. Botox is also FDA-approved for the 
temporary relief of headaches and can be used to alleviate TMJ pain. 

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler and is the most popular 
compound for restoring lost volume and fullness to the face. Juvéderm is 
used to treat deeper wrinkles or folds in the mid-face, as well as to 
enhance the volume or symmetry of the lips.
