How Botox® Can Help You Feel Even Better About Your Updated Smile
The cosmetic effects of Botox® can be paired with its medical benefits to give you the most beautiful, comfortable smile possible. Learn how we apply this treatment to address gummy smiles, lip lines, and more.

Not only did Botox® top the charts in terms of popularity for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, but it trounced the competition. More than 1 million more Botox treatments were administered than the second-most popular option (fillers). 

So why are millions of people opting to get Botox in any given year? For a few reasons: it’s safe, it’s quick, and it works. 

That’s a big part of why our team offers Botox to our patients at LA Dentists Group in Glendale, California. With this proven, trusted cosmetic injectable, we can help you do a lot. We believe that your perfect smile doesn’t have to stop at your teeth. 

As a result, we offer Botox to help with:

Correcting a gummy smile

When you smile, do your lips show more of your gum line than you want? Botox can give you an easy fix so you show your pearly whites, not the pink of your gums. 

We can apply targeted Botox injections to the area between your upper lip and your nose. This temporarily freezes the muscles there. As a result, when you smile, those muscles can’t contract as much, preventing your gummy smile. 

Smoothing wrinkles

We wouldn’t miss the opportunity to offer Botox for its most popular use case: wrinkle reduction. Let’s say you love your newly whitened or straightened teeth but you hate that you have vertical lip lines distracting from them. With Botox, we can help to smooth those lines.

Or perhaps you’re grinning more now that you updated your smile. You’ve noticed, though, that smiling causes crow’s feet to appear. Botox can help with that, too. 

Ultimately, if you’re bothered by wrinkles and the way they distract from your radiant smile, talk with our team. We can help you build a Botox treatment plan to move toward your cosmetic goals. 

Addressing teeth grinding and TMJ

A beautiful smile should be comfortable. But if you’re living with temporomandibular jaw disorder (TMJ) or you grind your teeth, your smile might not feel as good as it looks.

Fortunately, with Botox, our team can relax your jaw muscles, fighting teeth grinding and TMJ. If you’re ready to enjoy a comfortable smile, talk with us so we can explore what Botox can do for you. 

Clearly, we have several options for leveraging Botox to improve the look and feel of your smile. Whether you’re bothered by a gummy smile, wrinkles, TMJ, or teeth grinding, this injectable treatment gives us a way to help.
