Refresh Your Smile Before Summer with Botox and Fillers

Refresh Your Smile Before Summer with Botox and Fillers

Summer is approaching, and it's the perfect time to refresh your smile with Botox® and fillers at Ardsley Dental Spa in Ardsley, New York. These noninvasive cosmetic injectables can turn back the hands of time to help you achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery. 

Dr. Hinna Chaudhry also uses injectables to correct dental issues, including bruxism, gummy smiles, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) discomfort. 

Here's how we use Botox and fillers to refresh your smile. 

Learn more about Botox and fillers

Botox and fillers are injectables designed to reduce the signs of aging and enhance your natural beauty. Each works differently and addresses different concerns.

Botox is a purified form of Clostridium botulinum injected into specific muscles. As a neurotoxin, Botox gently relaxes specific muscles. Depending on the injection site, you may see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced jaw pain, or reduced jaw clenching. 

Dermal fillers are made of smooth gels that restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness due to aging. There are many types of fillers, but the most common are hyaluronic acid-based fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite-based fillers.

How can Botox and fillers enhance your smile?

At Ardsley Dental Spa, we offer Botox and filler treatments to enhance your smile and correct dental issues. 

Cosmetic concerns

Botox targets dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles and creases formed by repetitive facial expressions. Fillers target static wrinkles and volume loss due to decreased collagen.

Botox can soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, such as marionette lines. Botox can also reduce forehead wrinkles, eyebrow furrows, and creases near your eyes. Botox also can smooth out chin dimples, giving you a more youthful-looking smile.

Fillers can add volume to your lips and improve their shape and symmetry.

Dental concerns

Botox, in particular, can help reduce symptoms of TMJ discomfort, bruxism, and gummy smiles. 

TMJ can cause headaches, difficulty chewing, and pain in the jaw, neck, and shoulders. Botox injections can help relax the jaw muscles, reducing tension and alleviating pain and symptoms, such as jaw popping.

Similarly, Botox treats bruxism by reducing the intensity of teeth grinding and clenching.

With a gummy smile, when your smile reveals more gum than you’d like, Botox can weaken the muscles that lift your upper lip, resulting in a more balanced smile. This treatment takes only a few minutes with no downtime required.
