Cosmetic dental services includes a wide range of treatments designed to improve or elevate the look of your teeth, mouth, and facial region. We offer both procedures that can be completed in one office visit, or full facial rejuvenation completed in multiple steps. Our staff at Mor Smiles provides professional care for your esthetic needs.
We offer non-surgical advanced facial esthetic services, designed to dramatically improve your appearance, removing fine lines and improving fullness to your skin. Facial esthetics is generally completed following intraoral work, though we can discuss areas of concern and design a treatment plan specific to you.
Facial esthetic services include:
BOTOX is an injectable treatment used to force muscles to relax. It is a neurotoxin that is applied professionally. It should never be applied by someone who is not authorized, as it is a bacteria that needs to be applied correctly.
BOTOX is a drug that we use to relax the facial muscles. It accomplishes this by blocking signals from the brain that have been causing them to contract. Forcing the muscles to relax has been shown to smooth wrinkles, fine lines, smile lines, and crow’s feet. Studies have shown that BOTOX not only reduces, but prevents new wrinkles from forming. Prevention is due to the decreased stress on the muscles. BOTOX treatment is completed in approximately 15 minutes, and the results can last between three and five months.
In addition to reduced lines and wrinkles, patients can see a reduction in facial pain as the muscles relax. Pain from stress to the jaw joint or bruxism can lessen. This may also decrease headaches and migraines.
Like BOTOX, dermal fillers are an injectable treatment. It is the injection of hyaluronic acid, or hydration, used to smooth out skin, fill the lips, and reduce the appearance of lines by improving the skin’s fullness and restoring elasticity. As we age, our skin naturally loses some of these important resources to keep it looking young, full, and hydrated.
Collagen is a natural protein we have in our skin to prevent sagging. It provides our skin tissue both strength and structure. As we naturally lose hyaluronic acid, collagen loses its strength and skin begins to sag. Dermal fillers can be used to gently lift and plump the skin by infusing gels derived from hyaluronic acid into the skin.
The amount of filler needed and where it is needed will depend on the needs of the patient. We can discuss areas of concern and determine how much collagen and volume has been lost. Dermal filler treatment generally takes between 20-40 minutes to apply. Most patients see a difference within days, but it can take up to two weeks. Results often last between four and six months. In some cases, treatment may prompt a natural reaction to produce more collagen helping results last even longer.
We can help you have a more beautiful, youthful appearance. Contact our office for more information on this and other cosmetic dental services. Significant results may be faster and easier than you think.
