Invisalign Treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Dr. Hutchens will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan.
Every smile is unique, which is why your Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Hutchens will help you determine what Invisalign treatment could do for your smile.
The idea behind this non-invasive dental procedure is to break down the hydrogen peroxide (in whitening gel) by the Zoom lamp light and enable oxygen to enter the tooth dentin and enamel. It is completely safe. The tooth structure remains intact whereas stains are bleached.
Patients feel no pain other than a slight sensitivity and tingling sensation. Yet this mild discomfort usually passes in 24 hours. The entire procedure takes from 45 to 60 minutes in most cases.
Allergan Aesthetics: The use of Botox in dentistry offers various benefits to patients beyond just cosmetic improvements. Botox can be used therapeutically to treat conditions such as TMJ disorders and bruxism, reducing pain and discomfort for patients.
Bruxism is a common condition in which you clench or grind your teeth, often while sleeping. It can lead to dental problems and jaw pain, as well as headaches and earaches. While there are several treatments available for bruxism, Botox injections have become increasingly popular due to their effectiveness and convenience. Botox works by relaxing the muscles responsible for clenching and grinding, thereby reducing the symptoms of bruxism.
The cosmetic benefits of using Botox in dentistry are also significant, with the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lips.
Juvederm: As you age, your skin becomes thinner and looser because your skin naturally loses moisture. While it’s different for everyone, this typically begins to happen around the time a person reaches their 30s. Skin loses moisture and natural elasticity, and you begin to notice more fine lines and wrinkles. This can cause us to feel self-conscious because we look older than we feel.
Juvederm is an injectable fluid that your dentist may use to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in your face, particulary around your mouth and lips to enhance your smile.. It encourages more youthful and beautiful skin, which makes you want to smile more as a result. Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, which is already naturally produced in your body, to plump up your skin by creating more elasticity. After getting Juvederm, you see results immediately upon use and they typically last for eight months to a full year.
