Facial Esthetics with Botox or Dermal filler

If you are looking to improve the esthetics of your face with dermal filler injections or Botox injections, consider visiting your dentist, as they have lot better exprerience and knowledge about facial esthetics. By going to a qualified dentist, you are benefiting from their experience with facial anatomy and esthetics to provide the most effective and successful results. Here in Holmdel, NJ, Dr. Dipika Shah provides his patients with facial esthetics using Botox or dermal fillerinjections.

Both Botox and dermal fillers use liquids that are injected to desired areas of the face. They help to fill in the face, providing a fuller and more natural look. They can offer an improved profile, and minimize both wrinkles and fine lines in the face.

Many patients decide to get this treatment from their dentist due to laugh lines and wrinkles around the mouth or eyes. It is virtually painless and done very quickly right in the dental office. Patients can get this treatment whether they are hoping to hide the look of their lines and wrinkles, or to provide their facial profile with more volume.

Sleep Apnea

Dr. Dipika Shah provides a wide range of dental services to her patients, including oral appliances for sleep apnea. Dental treatment is not just about fillings and root canals and cleanings, though that is certainly important. It is also about helping with our patients with their overall health.

  • Get a custom-made oral appliance for proper treatment of sleep apnea.
  • Improve their sleep every night.

  • Access to a small appliance that is easy to travel with.
If you have signs of sleep apnea, visit our dental practice in Holmdel, NJ. We will provide you with more information about the oral appliance available to give you an effective solution.
