Smooth away wrinkles & TMJ pain with the world's #1 cosmetic treatment and therapeutic solution.
BOTOX Cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults. So you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
Benefits of BOTOX injections
Treatment You Can Trust
When surveyed, 62% of respondents (n=342) say treatment is worth the investment.† In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its kind evaluated by the FDA for safety and efficacy in three treatment areas, as well as for patient satisfaction in frown lines and forehead lines in adults.
How Botox Cosmetic Works
During the quick 10-minute procedure, a medical protein called Botulinum A Toxin is injected into the targeted area. After a short time, the BOTOX® temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause the wrinkling, thereby creating a softer, more relaxed appearance. Thousands of people report noticeable results and are pleased with the dramatic difference. Although the procedure is temporary, it is safe and very effective.
MODERATE TO SEVERE FROWN LINES
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.
MODERATE TO SEVERE CROW’S FEET
MODERATE TO SEVERE FOREHEAD LINES
What is TMJ Disorder?
The Temporomandibular joints, commonly known as the TMJ, are two joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. There is no clear cause, but many factors can contribute to TMJ disorder, including stress, tooth grinding/clenching (bruxism), genetics, arthritis, and jaw injuries. TMJ disorders or dysfunction can cause pain in the jaw joints and in the muscles that control jaw movements. Many people with this condition experience symptoms including:
TMJ Disorder: Your personalized treatment plan
In conjunction with the above treatments, we often recommend physical therapy. Certain TMJ exercises can stretch and strengthen the muscles around the jaws. The muscles as far down as the neck and shoulders are all connected, and treating these can often provide relief as well.

Kind words from our patients
I had an excellent experience at South Shore Smiles. Dr. Cheng and her assistant provided me with incredible reassurance throughout my appointment. Not only did they fill my cavity efficiently, but I also experienced zero pain during the procedure. I truly appreciate their expertise and care, making my visit comfortable and stress-free. As someone who is notoriously picky about choosing a dentist, I am incredibly thankful to have found a provider that I trust and comfortable with! Highly recommend!
A very pleasant experience. It started with a wonderful reception from Mary at the front desk. My dental assistant Adella was very knowledgeable of my procedure and took the time to make sure I understood everything. Dr. Cheng was a spectacular final touch on my visit. The office environment is tastefully decorated and very welcoming.
South Shore Smiles is a welcoming, relaxing office with a great team! Close to the Braintree exit of Route 3, it is convenient and easy to find. Dr. Cheng is warm, professional, and makes sure you understand your treatment plan and preventative maintenance recommendations. The whole team is kind and friendly. If you are looking for an honest, patient-centered dentist, you have found one here!
Excellent staff and service. From the time I walked through their door to the time I left, everyone was attentive, kind, professional, and caring. My dental hygienist was attentive and went the extra mile to get me warm water to rinse with after asking and learning of the sensitivity of one tooth. My dentist took the time to ask questions and actually listened to my responses. Best dental care I have EVER received! If you are looking for a caring and competent dental team – you will find it with South Shore Smiles. Thanks for making my daughter and I feel cared for!
Hating going to the dentist is a thing of the past! The staff here could not be any kinder and more personable. Very cute office space too! I got my Invisalign done by Dr. Cheng two years ago and the difference in my smile is like night and day. I got my teeth cleaned by Christine yesterday as well and and she was a pleasure to chat with (along with the two ladies working in reception, so sorry but I did not catch their names!) I would recommend going here to absolutely anyone, only dentist’s office I will go to for the rest of my life.
Our experience with South Shore Smiles and Dr. Cheng has been nothing but positive. Her staff is friendly, kind and knowledgeable. Dr. Cheng is very friendly and makes you feel very comfortable with what she is doing. I would highly recommend South Shore Smiles.
