  • You’ve likely contorted your face to show that you’re happy, sad, scared, angry, disgusted, or surprised. In fact, according to researchers at Ohio State University, humans can make 21 different facial expressions to show their range of emotions. Each time you make one of these expressions, the muscles underneath your skin tense and bunch up, causing the elastin under your face to begin breaking down, which creates wrinkles and fine lines that make you appear older. Other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and genetics can make wrinkles appear as well. Fortunately, Dr. Timmerman is a trained cosmetic dentist and offers BOTOX treatment to help restore your youthful glow and allow you to feel more confident in your appearance.

    What is it Like Getting BOTOX?

    BOTOX injections utilize diluted botulinum toxin to freeze muscles in your face, helping them to relax and release wrinkles and fine lines. It’s used in small doses to ease facial lines caused by frowning or aging. Typically, patients begin to notice results within five days that last between three and six months.

    When you first visit Dr. Timmerman for BOTOX injections, he’ll discuss your goals with you to determine what muscles to inject the treatment into. Each one takes approximately five to 10 minutes to administer, so depending on how many injections you’d like, appointments can last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.

    Are You A Candidate For Dental BOTOX?

    Patients who have certain neuromuscular diseases, are pregnant, have skin disorders, or deep facial scars may not be good candidate for BOTOX, which is why it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with Dr. Timmerman if you’re considering the procedure. Typically, the best candidates for BOTOX are patients who are in their late 20s or older and are looking to fix facial imperfections, including:

    Are There Side Effects Associated With Dental BOTOX Treatment?

    Unfortunately, BOTOX treatments have suffered an unfair stereotype thanks to years of inaccurate depictions in movies and on TV, with people suffering from drooping faces and paralyzed facial features after an injection gone wrong. When used correctly in a professional setting, however, dental BOTOX treatments are safe, non-toxic, and offer incredible cosmetic results with virtually no side-effects. In fact, BOTOX injections can improve a patients’ ability to express facial emotions, and can work to naturally highlight your unique facial features and bone structure. Injections are also virtually pain-free, and are FDA-approved for numerous cosmetic applications.

    If you have a painful TMJ disorder, a disproportionate lip line that’s skewing your smile, or a chronic dental condition such as grinding or clenching, BOTOX offers a simple, affordable, pain-free cosmetic solution that will help you achieve the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.

    Dr Timmerman is a real pro. He is a gifted crafter of smiles . All on 6 in my case. For years i havent publicly smiled at anyone. My natural teeth had reached the end. Enter Seattle Smiles to give me a solution that restored confidence in myself to present my true self to the world again. The consultation was thorough and very educational to me. Its tough to hear you cant keep your natural teeth anymore but Dr Timmerman did great explaining my options and being honest about the consequences for my oral and general health. I trusted the Dr completely and he did a terrific job on my all on 6 (upper and lower) restoration. Prep and Surgery was well prepared and almost completely painless . Its amazing from the quality of the work performed to the underlying advanced tech to the craftsmenship of my new smile and the great support of Holly to help me explore potential coverage under my health insurance. 1st class staff, top notch Dentist and full support of this journey. On to healing and getting final set late this summer. Very pleased with the results. My wife says she doesnt want me to go out in public because “I look too good”. Thanks Dr Timmerman and staff, you changed my life .

    Dr. Timmerman is exceptionally skilled and friendly. He exhibits a gentle touch when working on your teeth. His staff is also very welcoming. I once witnessed Dr. Timmerman performing an emergency tooth repair for someone I knew, and he did an excellent job. I wouldn’t consider going to anyone else. My trust in Dr. Timmerman is unwavering at 100%. When it comes to cosmetic dental work, Dr. Timmerman is, without a doubt, the best!

    If you have embarrassment or fears concerning your teeth /mouth condition this is the place to come. Very professional! They put you immediately at ease. My teeth are in horrible condition. It was difficult for me to even make the apt as I’m so embarrassed to even open my mouth. From the receptionist to the doctor I was treated as if I was the only patient they had that day. They even helped me get financing! Make the call today you won’t be sorry.
