What Is Anti-Aging Dentistry?
Did you know that Dr. Morton can help you restore your youthful appearance while you are visiting our office for your regular six-month dental checkup? True story! With the help of Botox and Juvéderm, it is possible to reverse the effects of time, hence the term: “anti-aging dentistry.”
Here’s the lowdown on Botox. That is the high-end brand name for botulinum toxin. This toxin is safely injected into facial muscles to erase fine lines and wrinkles from your complexion. With Botox injections, you simply need to take it easy for a few hours afterward, but there is no real recovery time needed. Botox is not permanent but it does last for a few months. The fact that it only lasts for a few months means you are not stuck with the effects. If you decide you don’t want to have the treatments anymore, just let your body process through the injection, and you are back to normal.
Juvéderm is a facial filler that is used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the face. The active ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Juvéderm will boost the volume of your skin in the area of injection. It is best used for erasing fine lines and wrinkles from around your mouth to make you look younger. This is a much longer lasting treatment than Botox, which can be good if you want the youthful effects to be prolonged.
If your teeth and gums are worse for wear, you will be in good hands with us. We can get your smile looking great again with the help of proven cosmetic dentistry techniques. Dr. Morton can employ professional whitening, dental veneers, bonding, gum recession treatment, and even Invisalign clear orthodontic aligners to take you where you want to go. When you come in for your consultation we will figure out the best solution (or combination) for your current needs and budget.
