A beautiful smile is one of the most sought after cosmetic features in the world. People from all backgrounds and professions want a bright, straight smile, and we are here to help turn that desire into reality. Whether through minor adjustments or major treatment plans, our cosmetic dentistry practice aims to improve your smile and help you build confidence in the way your teeth look.
Wrinkles around your eyes, between your brows, and on your forehead not only age your face, but they can also make you look angry or unhappy. Dr. Molina is a master injector and he can smooth out your wrinkles using the neuromodulator BOTOX®. BOTOX can help resolve other aesthetic issues, too, including a gummy smile. If you want to smooth out wrinkles or get a more pleasant look and you live in the South Florida area — including Broward and Collier counties, call Dr. Molina’s office today.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
BOTOX is a neuromodulator that’s made from a highly purified form of onabotulinumtoxinA. BOTOX is the only neuromodulator that’s FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet.
IS BOTOX SAFE?
BOTOX is exceptionally safe and has been used successfully for cosmetic purposes since 1989. The only side effects you might expect are some slight bruising or redness around the injection site.
HOW DOES BOTOX STOP WRINKLES?
BOTOX relaxes the dynamic muscles that fold your skin into wrinkles by blocking the nerves that signal those muscles to move. The muscles relax, and your skin then smooths out. After a few days, your wrinkles disappear.
- Crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines (“11s” between your eyebrows)
- Forehead wrinkles
BOTOX doesn’t work on wrinkles that other factors cause, such as generalized wrinkling from sun damage or smoking.
WILL BOTOX FREEZE MY FACE?
Dr. Molina will inject only enough BOTOX to quiet down dynamic muscles, not freeze them.
Your muscles should still be able to move enough so that you can make regular expressions. However, they won’t be able to press your skin into wrinkles.
HOW ELSE CAN I USE BOTOX?
BOTOX can treat other wrinkles and aesthetic issues, such as:
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Bunny lines
- Droopy brows (non-surgical brow lift)
- Orange-peel skin on chin
- Neck bands
- Bulky jaws
BOTOX can even improve or resolve some medical conditions, such as:
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Bruxism (tooth grinding)
- Bell’s palsy
BOTOX can be combined with dermal fillers to create a liquid face lift that rejuvenates without any surgery.
HOW MUCH BOTOX DO I NEED?
Your exact dosage of BOTOX depends partly on how deep your wrinkles are. In general, you can expect to receive:
- 0.5 mL for glabellar lines
- 0.6 mL for crow’s feet
- 1 mL for forehead wrinkles
BOTOX doesn’t spread more than about 1 cm past the injection site.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
BOTOX lasts about three to four months in the forehead and around the eyes, and six months in the jaw.

Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. We recommend this treatment to anyone experiencing discoloration that cannot be fixed with whitening or if your teeth are damaged. Porcelain veneers are also an option if you’re unhappy with the shape or look of your natural teeth.request an appointment

Dental bonding is the procedure where we apply a tooth colored plastic material to a patient’s tooth. Using a special light, the material hardens and bonds the material to the tooth.
Dental bonding is used to improve a patient’s smile. It can be used on cracked and decaying teeth. It also can be used for cavities. It can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth so you have a more uniform smile! It is also commonly used for receding gums by protecting the exposed teeth!request an appointment
