After cosmetic dental work, we hope that you’re thrilled with your teeth and ready to share your dazzling smile with the world. But a perfect smile should be accompanied by beautiful skin.
As we age, our faces express our emotions and fall prey to overuse. Decades of smiling, laughing and frowning wear our faces and create lines. Those lines can make us feel older and less attractive. But in our technologically accomplished modern era, we don’t need to be ruled by our facial lines.
Non-surgical treatments like Botox and dermal fillers smooth skin and remove facial folds. The result is a youthful, rounded face that complements your wonderful smile. These treatments are safe, quick and easily administered by your skilled cosmetic dentist.
Dr. Montalvo and Dr. Andrade have received advanced training in cosmetic and therapeutic injections, guided by their professional expertise with facial musculature. Learn more about our dental spa services below!
Our foreheads are so prominent, and carry so much of our worry. Many people furrow their brows whenever they concentrate on a task, leading to lines between their eyebrows. Others raise their brows as part of an emotional response or surprise, causing forehead lines. These lines just aren’t necessary to live with anymore. Botox cosmetic injections targets nerve receptors to stop them from contracting forehead muscles. This effective treatment relaxes your entire brow and safeguards against forehead clenching.
In addition to facial lines, Botox can also be used to improve gummy smiles and other asymmetry with your smile.
Botox for Headaches & TMJ
Therapeutic Botox can improve a variety of concerns related to issues stemming from jaw tension and overactive jaw muscles.
Botox only affects specific muscles in your forehead, so the rest of your face remains unrestrained and expressive. Only those troublesome forehead muscles will be at rest. Some patients who clench their brows constantly find that Botox actually makes them much more comfortable, by ensuring that those muscles remain relaxed. Sufferers of TMJ and bruxism have also found relief with Botox treatments injected into their jaws.
Some of the many therapeutic applications for Botox include:
- Relieving facial muscle tension
- Preventing chronic headaches and migraines
- Improving TMJ/TMD to help prevent bruxism (clenching/grinding)

Fillers have become popular for their wide range of applications across the face. Whether you’re interested in subtly enhancing your lips, easing lines around the mouth, or improving facial volume, fillers will help you make gentle changes with a single appointment.
Our dentists offer fillers for the following –
- Lip enhancement
- Smile lines / nasolabial folds
- Lip lines / smoker’s lines
Dermal fillers are temporary and the length of results will depend on the type of filler and location of injections. They are a great option for your first cosmetic treatment. Talk to Dr. Montalvo or Dr. Andrade about what you can expect from fillers at your appointment, and they will walk you through the process.
