Botox Cosmetic is effective in reducing the appearance of lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crows feet around the eyes and lines around the mouth. In addition to improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles and other facial signs of aging, Botox can be effectively used treat a “gummy smile”. Botox treatments generally last about 6 months, sometimes longer with successive treatments.
Juvederm® is one of the first FDA approved dermal fillers that will last for up to a year. Also used for facial lines, wrinkles and nasolabial folds, Juvederm has a “plumping” effect on treated areas which restores lost volume to reduce the appearance of the signs of aging.
Juvederm creates gorgeous lip enhancements for those who feel they “have no lip” or a fuller lip for those who just want a little more “wow”! As you can imagine, framing a beautiful smile with a beautiful lip is something Dr. Amy LOVES to do!

“Dr. Amy did my Juvederm and Botox injections and I couldn’t be happier with my results! She listened to exactly what I wanted and made me feel so pretty and young!”
“The Botox for my “gummy smile” has been life changing! I wish I could\’ve had this done years ago! Not to mention, I now have a reason to look forward to going to the dentist!”
“This was my first experience with Juvederm. I had been unhappy with the size of my top lip for a very long time. I thought about having it done in the past but was extremely nervous about having someone touch my lips that did not know me and what I wanted exactly. Once I found out that Dr. Amy was doing it I was then convinced it was the perfect time to do it. I have trusted her with my teeth/smile for over 10 years now, and with this being a service now offered-who else would I ever want to do this for me other than the person who looks at teeth, smiles, and lips every day!!
She made it such a great experience for me knowing I was still a bit nervous since it was my first time. She and her staff told me everything that was going to happen from before they started up to what I should expect for the first two weeks. They were both exactly right!!!! I am nothing but PLEASED!!!! Will do again in the future:) Thanks Dr Amy and Amanda-you guys really changed my life on how I feel about my smile now.”
