At Cormier Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer both BOTOX® injections and dermal fillers to patients of our Shreveport dental practice. These cosmetic options can serve as outstanding complements to the rejuvenated smile made possible through your dental procedures. While BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers are mainstays of cosmetic surgery practices and skin care clinics, an increasing number of dentists are adding these non-invasive cosmetic tools to our treatment arsenal – and our patients are reaping the benefits!
Both BOTOX® injections and dermal fillers offer a safe, cost-effect method of treating the perioral areas around the mouth, putting a potentially ideal finishing touch on any smile makeover. These non-invasive injections can help reduce the signs of aging, bring stronger harmony to the face, and create an overall aesthetically pleasing smile. We think the use of BOTOX® injections or dermal fillers to enhance the beauty your natural smile is the perfect complement to other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as Zoom!® Teeth Whitening and porcelain veneers. Many of our Shreveport area patients find that the addition of BOTOX® Cosmetic or a dermal filler in conjunction with other rejuvenating procedures such as teeth whitening helps refresh their overall look.
As dental professionals, our dentists are intimately familiar with the underlying structures of the jaw and face in ways that many other medical professionals are not. They are able to accurately target facial muscles and nerves to help shape the area around the mouth while also caring for the health and beauty of the teeth and gums beneath.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® is the brand name for botulinum toxin, a purified protein. As we age, our skin thins and becomes susceptible to wrinkling especially in areas with excessive muscle movement. When injected into facial muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerves that create facial muscle movement. This allows the muscles to relax. As a result, skin around the site of injection also relaxes out of its wrinkled state, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles within a few days after injection.
BOTOX® injections are generally used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, including worry lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles around the lips. However, we are also able to employ BOTOX® injections clinically to relieve muscle pain and fatigue associated with TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding).
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite. Fillers are used to create additional volume in the face to fill out wrinkles. Dermal fillers naturally stimulate collagen production in areas that have lost elasticity, creating younger, firmer looking skin. Dentists can also use dermal fillers to augment the lips in cases of high lip lines or to correct uneven lips.
