Vancouver Cosmetic Dentistry: Rejuvenating Your Smile with Botox Injections

Rejuvenating your smile with Botox injections can be a great way to restore a soft, natural, and relaxed looking appearance. At Dentist at False Creek, we are dedicated to helping our patients maintain happy and healthy smiles. That is why we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to patients throughout Vancouver.

What to Expect from Botox Injections

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, works to temporarily paralyze muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle and crease. While the needles used for Botox injections are very thin, your dentist can numb the area topically before administering the injections. Each Botox injection only takes a few seconds, and normal activity can be resumed immediately; however, patients should be careful not to rub or press on the area for several days as the Botox could migrate to other areas of the face.

How Botox Can Help

Botox injections can be administered by your dentist in order to help rejuvenate your smile. Some of the areas Botox can be used include:

Smile Lines

Smile lines (lines that go from the nose to the outer corners of the mouth or vertical wrinkles on the corners of the mouth) can make you look angry or upset when you are not. Botox can help remove these smile lines after they have occurred by temporarily weakening the facial muscles, leaving the face more relaxed. Botox injections can also be used as a preventative measure before the wrinkles have set in by reducing the amount of lines that can develop on the face over time.

Forehead Wrinkles, Frown Lines, and Crow’s Feet

Forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet are caused by the contraction of facial muscles that cause the skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent concentration, squinting, or frowning, the wrinkles will begin to linger even after the muscles are at rest. Whether you are looking to get rid of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, or crow’s feet, a Botox trained dentist can help treat these areas, reducing the muscle activity that causes persistent lines to form.
