While general dental care focuses on preventing and treating oral diseases, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth through elective dental treatments. At Gardens Dental Spa, many patients undergo cosmetic dental procedures to enhance the look of their smile for a special occasion such as a wedding or graduation. In contrast, others undergo treatments to address functional oral health issues.
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of material that go over your teeth to help address imperfections such as chipped or cracked teeth, discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, and more. They are bonded to your original teeth. Because the veneer material is usually extremely thin, very little of the original tooth structure is removed when preparing the tooth for a veneer.
Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to dramatically whiten your smile. Our dentists offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems for convenience. Professional strength gel is applied to your teeth and left to sit. If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, we can provide custom-fit bleaching trays for you to take home and use on your own time. The trays fit over your teeth perfectly without irritating your gums or causing sensitivity. We’ll provide you with professional-strength bleaching gel to use in your custom-made trays so you can have a white smile in just a few days.
Some patients are born with thin lips that lack definition or volume. Others may find that their lips have become thinner with age due to decreased collagen production. Fortunately, lip repositioning is a cosmetic procedure that can address both issues to create a full, voluptuous pout. This procedure involves using dermal fillers to make the lips fuller and younger looking. The process is quick, safe, effective, and offers immediate results. It’s also wholly reversible; if you don’t like the results, the filler can be dissolved at any time. For patients who would like a little more definition to the upper lip, we can combine this treatment with botulinum toxin injections to give your lips more shape and definition.
Botox and Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers are injectables that relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and add volume to areas of the face that have lost some elasticity. They are safe, non-invasive procedures that can eliminate dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. Both injections use very small needles to inject the product into the patient’s skin for more enjoyable, youthful-looking results. Botox can correct horizontal forehead creases, vertical lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet beside the eyes, lip lines, and more. Dermal fillers can also add volume and smooth folds around your smile, lips, nose, and mouth. Some patients combine the two treatments for better results and longer-lasting effects.
