I couldn’t be happier with the results. I think it’s the perfect smile and I get compliments on it all the time.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments: Botox

Botox is a purified natural protein used to relax muscles that cause facial wrinkles. Botox works by blocking the signals from nerves to muscles. Wrinkles relax and soften as injected muscles contract less forcefully. Botox is most effective on furrows present in the forehead, small wrinkles or “crows feet” around the eyes, vertical frown lines between eyebrows, and for helping control clenching/grinding habits. Injections with fine needles are almost imperceptible and the procedure only takes a few minutes with no anaesthesia required.

Why get BOTOX® from your dentist?

Dentists are uniquely qualified for the administration of botox, being well trained in the musculature and anatomy of the face. Botox is routinely used in the dental office for treatment of oral health issues such as, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Dr. Cegielski is a North Vancouver dentist certified to provide Botox and is highly experienced in the safe and effective use of this medicine.

At our North Vancouver Dental Office, we are happy to offer BOTOX® injections not just for muscle tension but for regular cosmetic treatments. Cosmetic injections are most effective on fine lines in the forehead, around the eyes, and between eyebrows.

Botox has been used safely and effectively for over 20 years with few risks and side effects. When administered by a qualified professional, Botox is considered very safe. Treatments typically last for approximately 3 months.
When administered correctly, Botox should not affect the nerves that cause sensation and you should experience the same feeling in your face that you did before the treatment.

Side effects for Botox are rare and most commonly include slight swelling or bruising at the injection site. If performed incorrectly Botox can result in problems such as eyelid droop or crooked eyebrows. In extremely rare cases the toxin can spread to other parts of the body, causing issues such as muscle weakness and vision problems. It’s very important to ensure that the treatment is performed by a qualified professional.
