You don't need to worry about the signs of aging spoiling your facial features and smile anymore! At Smile Arizona Dentistry, we provide aesthetic dentistry and Botox solutions to help reduce signs of aging and redefine your smile. One of our goals is to ensure that you get an overall refreshed look.
Botox can correct a range of dental concerns (from TMJ pain to lip flip and teeth grinding) and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium and related species. When injected into the skin, it slows and freezes muscular contraction to create wrinkle-free, younger-looking skin.
We offer Botox as a solution for the following concerns:
Two or more units of Botox are injected in the area between the upper lip and nose to relax the muscles and limit the rise of the upper lip when smiling, keeping your gums covered.
Botox will weaken the muscles responsible for teeth grinding and signal your brain not to overuse them, thus preventing bruxism. It also reduces muscle soreness and tooth stress caused by bruxism.
Botox can help relax the jaw and surrounding facial muscles, eliminating the pain and discomfort caused by the TMJ disorder.
Botox relaxes the lip and facial muscles, allowing the skin to smooth out, thus reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Exposed gums, aging lines, saggy skin, and pain and discomfort from bruxism and TMJ disorder can impact your smile. Botox shots help address all these issues while giving you an enhanced smile.
Botox relaxes the muscles around your mouth and lips, making your lip flip slightly upwards, thus creating fuller and plumped lips.
PDO threads made of polydioxanone rejuvenate the skin while reducing fat deposits and stimulating collagen production. It can help tighten sagging skin without leaving any scars or marks!
While reducing aging furrows, fillers help restore fullness and volume on your face around your cheeks, lips, and mouth.
Botox was once used as a cosmetic treatment to correct wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes and lips. Now it is also used for dental aesthetic enhancement procedures, such as lip augmentation, denture adjustments, and orthodontic procedures where retraining facial muscles are necessary. It serves as a minimally invasive alternative to high lip line surgery. With Botox, you can restore both your facial and dental esthetics and have an enhanced, rejuvenated appearance.
Our dentist, Dr. Beth Vander Schaaf, has been a trained member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) for over a decade. With her extensive experience and expertise in providing cosmetic dentistry and Botox solutions, she can help you achieve a beautiful, natural smile.

Facial esthetics in dentistry refers to a range of non-surgical additional procedures like Botox and dermal fillers and other skincare products used to achieve a more natural-looking smile as a result of a dental makeover. Facial esthetics solutions can reduce the signs of aging on your face and give you a younger look and a more fresh appearance.
Esthetic dentistry treatments, including Botox, fillers, and threading, can create perfect harmony between your overall facial esthetics and smile. While fixing your dental concerns, esthetic dentistry techniques improve the appearance of your smile and the functionality of your teeth. The esthetic dentistry techniques are minimally invasive and can be performed with minimum downtime and significant comfort.
The esthetic dentistry treatments will help you get a pleasing smile that improves your confidence, quality of life, and frankly improve your first impression you will have on people.
Botox is a safe, FDA-approved procedure, but getting it done by a professional is crucial to experience the best possible results. After the treatment, it is quite common to experience flu-like symptoms, pain, or swelling at the injection site for a few days.
