“It seemed only natural to entrust the doctor that completed my
esthetic full-mouth rehabilitation with my facial esthetics!”

Botox® Treatment

You have heard about Botox® and are wanting to know more? Look no further than Dr. Steve Gorman and The Gorman Center for Fine Dentistry. Botox® treatments are the the most commonly performed, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in North America. Although commonly associated with plastic surgeons and dermatologists, Botox® treatment by dentists is well established. As a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and an administrator of Botox® treatments, Dr. Gorman has developed a reputation as a very gentle provider of facial esthetic products.

How does Botox® work?

Botox® partially blocks the contraction of muscles. When this happens, the muscles smooth out and in approximately three to ten days after treatment, wrinkles soften and a more youth appearance is evident. These effects will last for approximately three to four months. The areas commonly used for smoothing of facial wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes and around the corners of the eyes.

Should Dr. Gorman apply my Botox® treatment?

According to information from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics,  dentists are uniquely suited for providing Botox® treatments. A highly skilled Cosmetic and Restorative dentist, Dr. Gorman is particularly skilled at assessing the balance and overall esthetics of the face. He has extensive training in the anatomy of the head and neck and is highly experienced in injecting sensitive areas. As an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Gorman has been highly trained in facial esthetics and uses the concepts of: excellence, attention, perspective, awareness, precision, balance and function daily. This has helped him develop what we, at the Gorman Center call Transformative Dentistry. The natural looking outcome of Transformative Dentistry – simple or complex – that leads to a more relaxed and youthful smile is what defines it. Botox® can play a part in achieving a natural, younger looking appearance.

Dr. Gorman’s more than 30 years of experience in intricate cosmetic dentistry procedures and additional training in complex dentistry from some of the most highly regarded continuing education institutions in the country certainly qualifies him as an expert when it comes to oral/maxillofacial treatments, including applying Botox®.

“I have been receiving regular Botox® treatments for about 12 years. and have received treatment by many different clinicians. I can objectively recommend Dr. Gorman among the best. I appreciate Dr. Gorman’s attention to detail and commitment to providing natural results. I have had great results, not to mention how convenient it has been for me coordinating only one appointment for a regular cleaning and Botox® treatment!” – Jess
