Find out why you may want to turn to your dentist if you are interested in this simple cosmetic treatment.botox

Even though some people wear their laugh lines like a badge of honor, not everyone feels as great about these wrinkles. If you have crow’s feet, forehead lines or wrinkles around the nose and mouth that bother you, our Washington, DC cosmetic dentist, Dr. Leslie Bonner, could help smooth out these facial lines and help you get a more youthful appearance.

My Dentist Offers Botox?

When people think about Botox they often assume they have to go to a dermatologist or even cosmetic surgeon to get this treatment, but our Washington, DC dentist makes it easier to get that youthful look just by coming into our dental office.

Why should you choose a dentist to perform this simple cosmetic procedure? One thing is certain: dentists receive a lot of advanced training with regards to the maxillofacial region, which means that if any doctor should be allowed to provide Botox it should be a dentist. After all, dentists have to perform some rather invasive maxillofacial procedures regularly.

If you are looking to smooth away dynamic wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, mouth and nose then Botox injections may be all that you need to take years off your skin. These thin needles are so small that most patients don’t feel anything more than a slight pinch. In a matter of minutes, the treatment is over. Over the course of three to four days, you will start to see some of those lines and wrinkles disappear (it can take up to one week to see the full results). While Botox results are temporary, if you want to maintain your results for longer you can always come back in every few months for a refresher treatment.

If you are interested in taking years off your skin then it’s time to call The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC to schedule your consultation. Let’s find out if Botox is right for you.

Cosmetic dentistry is a priceless facet of general dentistry, allowing you to rejuvenate your smile with only a few dental procedures. FindingDental Implants, Invisalign, Cosmetic Dentistry the right procedure for you could be as easy as asking your dentist about cosmetic dentistry and what it can do for your smile. Find out more about some common procedures with Dr. Leslie Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network at one of two Washington, DC locations.

What is cosmetic dentistry? 
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the look of your smile. Some procedures kill two birds with one stone, improving both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile while others simply give you a smile you will love. Dentists can choose to undergo additional training in cosmetic dentistry procedures to further their education on the subject or gather the most up-to-date information.

Invisalign 
Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment which, unlike traditional braces, offers a quick and discreet way to improve your smile. The process treats the same issues as traditional braces, but uses clear aligner trays rather than metal brackets and wires, allowing you to straighten your smile and correct your bite issues. Patients remove Invisalign’s trays to eat and brush their teeth, making this method of orthodontic care the most convenient and effortless on the market.

Dental Implants 
Dental implants replace a missing tooth. Unlike other tooth replacement options like dental bridges, implants also replace a missing tooth’s root. This is crucial in providing the bone with the stimulation it requires to avoid atrophy and remain healthy. Dental implants require several dental appointments to complete but last a lifetime with the proper care. Implants are touted as the most efficient and permanent tooth replacement procedure available.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Washington, DC
Whether you want to completely renew or simply tweak a small part of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help you. For more information on Invisalign, dental implants, or cosmetic dentistry in general, please contact Dr. Leslie Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network with locations on 17th street and 20th street in Washington, DC. Call to schedule an appointment today.

You are never too old to fix crooked teeth and to get the smile you want.invisalign

You never had braces growing up so it seems like it’s far too late as an adult to consider fixing your smile, right? Well, our Washington, DC cosmetic dentist, Dr. Leslie Bonner, would like to challenge this thought process. While the idea of wearing a mouth full of metal doesn’t sound ideal for any teen or adult, you don’t actually need metal braces in order to get that straighter smile. In fact, Invisalign makes it possible to get that dream smile without other people even being able to tell that you have braces.

It may seem hard to believe, but it is possible to fix gapping, crooked or misaligned smiles without other people noticing. Instead of bonding metal brackets to your teeth and connecting them through a system of wires, Invisalign uses clear, customized aligners that will fit over your teeth to move them into the proper position.

Invisalign is a great option for anyone in Washington DC who is looking to fix:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Crookedness
  • Crowding
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Invisalign is able to tackle everything from mild to moderate dental malocclusions. Both older teens and adults can benefit from choosing this orthodontic system over others and here’s why:

  • It’s more comfortable than regular metal braces, which can irritate and cut up soft tissue. Each aligner is also made to fit over your teeth, so you’ll get an ideal fit every time.
  • The aligners are also removable. While you will still want to wear them for about 20 to 22 hour each day they can be removed before meals and before brushing and flossing. This is a major advantage over traditional braces, which require you to change your diet and your oral care routine to accommodate your braces.
  • The aligners are made from clear thermoplastic so those around you won’t notice them. This is a major advantage for older teens who are in high school or college, as well as adults.
  • Aligners are easy to clean and care for compared to traditional braces.
  • You can often get a straighter smile in less time with Invisalign than with traditional braces.

The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC is dedicated to giving patients of all ages the smiles they have always wanted. Whether you want to learn more about Invisalign or other orthodontic treatments we offer, give our office a call today.

Learn about your cosmetic dentistry options from your Washington, DC dentist.

Would you like to feel better about your smile? Cosmetic dentistry treatments can conceal a chipped tooth, brighten your smile, change cosmetic dentistrythe appearance of a tooth or replace missing teeth. Dr. Leslie Bonner, your Washington, DC, dentist at The Bonner Dental Network, discusses several popular cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Teeth whitening

Improving your smile can be as simple as whitening your teeth. Whitening gets rids of stains that dull teeth and can even help you look younger. Professional whitening offers quicker, more impressive results than do-it-yourself kits and can last several years if you avoid foods and beverages that stain teeth.

Porcelain veneers

You'll want to consider veneers if your teeth are in good condition but you're self-conscious about a cosmetic issue. Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Dentists use them to lengthen short teeth, cover gaps, whiten teeth and conceal chips, cracks, discolorations and oddly shaped teeth.

Crowns

Crowns improve the appearance of teeth and also strengthen weakened teeth. They're used to lengthen teeth, restore fractured teeth, change the appearance of oddly shaped teeth and conceal chips, discolorations and other cosmetic issues.

Tooth replacement options

There's no need to live with a missing tooth, thanks to bridges, dentures and dental implants. Bridges and partial and full dentures transform your smile and restore your ability to chew and bite. If you're looking for a more permanent tooth replacement option, you'll want to consider dental implants. Implants replace the roots of teeth and bond to your jawbone. As long as you take care of them, you'll probably never have to replace them.

Invisalign

Do you hate the thought of wearing a mouthful of metal while you straighten your teeth? Invisalign offers a better option and doesn't require wires and brackets. You'll receive a series of clear, removable aligner trays that will gradually re-align your teeth. You'll use a new set of aligners every two weeks and will remove your trays to eat.

Isn't it about time you improved your smile? Call Dr. Bonner, your Washington, DC dentist at The Bonner Dental Network to find out which cosmetic dentistry treatment is the best choice for you.
