We Offer Botox, SmoothLase, and Liplase
One of the most popular services available is Botox. This well-known treatment helps stop the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is made from a neurotoxic protein and is used to help your muscles relax, which stops the formation of wrinkles. In return, you will appear more youthful. If you have creasing around your chin and mouth area, Smoothlase can be used to improve your elasticity. Smoothlase uses Laser technology to promote the growth of collagen to smooth uneven texture. Liplase can also be used to achieve fuller lips.
What To Know Before Botox Or Laser Treatment
Before receiving any of these treatments, you will need to have a consultation. During this, your dentist may ask you questions about your health history, current medications, and your main concerns. You must be at least 18 years old for this service.
After Botox or other services, you will need to wait to exercise or participate in other strenuous activities. Do your best to avoid touching your face, avoid drinking alcohol, and limit your sun exposure. If you have any questions or concerns, call your dentist right away.
Pair This With Other Services
If you are looking to improve the appearance of your smile, too, we can help. We offer a variety of cosmetic treatments to boost your pearly whites. For simple problems such as staining on your enamel, we offer professional tooth whitening. You can do this at home or in our office, depending on your preferences. If you choose to do this in the office, we will apply gel to your tooth and activate it with a light. After one appointment, your smile will be visibly brighter. For patients looking to do this at home, we will send you home with a kit tailored to your needs.
If you have deeper staining or other blemishes you would like to conceal, we also offer bonding, contouring, and veneers. Bonding uses composite resin to camouflage discoloration or chips. This is often paired with contouring, which can reshape uneven teeth. If you have several changes you would like to make to your smile, veneers can be used to improve the color, shape, and symmetry of your smile.
