Botox and Dermal Fillers for a Refreshed Look

Framing the Smile with Juvederm, Radiesse, and Botox

It may seem surprising to see Botox and dermal fillers on a dentist’s list of services, but it really makes sense. Many dental patients are looking for a more naturally youthful appearance, and the deep lines that often form on the brow or around the mouth can detract from a brand new smile. Many cosmetic dentistry patients see these gentle cosmetic procedures as a final touch.

So how do you decide if you want to have these treatments at your dentist’s office?

First you should be sure that your dentist has the training required to administer these treatments. Dentists like Dr. Craig Ratner have spent a significant amount of time learning how to use Botox and fillers to correct and reduce wrinkles, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, and to augment lips and lip architecture.


When wrinkles are caused by stress and muscle habit, Botox is the perfect solution. The procedure is easy – it only takes a few minutes – no anesthesia is needed, and in three to seven short days, you will see the remarkable full effects. With a quick injection, you will look more relaxed and feel more beautiful with no downtime and no recovery.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are another popular way patients are completing their smiles. Dermal fillers create a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. They are injected below the skin and are used to raise scar depressions, replace volume loss, reduce or even eliminate wrinkles and plump or enhance lips.


Dr. Ratner offers a variety of fillers to smooth away wrinkles and lines. Juvéderm helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds-the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).


Dr. Ratner also offers a lasting alternative, Radiesse. Radiesse is a dermal filler made of inorganic Calcium Hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in a gel. Radiesse is entirely synthetic and no animals are used during its production. There is no need for allergy testing. And because it is the same mineral component that makes our teeth and bones, Radiesse is completely biocompatible – and it lasts! It is not absorbed by your system so your results are incredibly long lasting.

Fillers are setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, restoring a natural, youthful look in an easy, convenient treatment. Isn’t your smile worth it? Call Dr. Craig Ratner to see what dermal fillers and Botox can do for you!
