How your dentist in Washington, D.C. can take years off of your facefillers

Dermal fillers used to be administered only by dermatologists, but times have changed! Many dentists also provide cosmetic services including dermal fillers. So what exactly are dermal fillers? What can dermal fillers do for you? These are both excellent questions and Dr. Leslie Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network in downtown Washington, D.C. wants to help introduce you to the benefits of dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers are fluid, gel-like materials that are injected into your skin. They work by “plumping up” your skin and replacing youthful volume lost to aging. Your skin will look smoother and fine lines and wrinkles are dramatically reduced or eliminated.

At Bonner Dental Network, a trained specialist will help you decide on which dental filler material would be best for you. Botox and Juvederm are two of the most popular dermal fillers used to reduce the appearance of:

  • Glabella; the lines between your eyebrows
  • Furrows; the lines in your forehead
  • Crow’s feet; the lines at the corners of your eyes
  • Naso-labial folds; vertical lines from your nose to your mouth
  • Lip lines; small vertical wrinkles from your nose to your lips

There are many advantages of dermal fillers when compared to other cosmetic facial treatments. Consider that dermal filler treatment is:

  • Quick; treatment takes only a few minutes.
  • Easily tolerated; a numbing spray can be used beforehand.
  • Minimally invasive; treatment requires little to no downtime.
  • Long-lasting; results can last between 6 and 18 months.
  • Less expensive; treatment costs far less than other cosmetic services.

The number of injections you will need varies depending on the area or areas being treated. The cost of treatment depends on the number of injections. Your provider will discuss treatment options and cost beforehand and what you can expect from treatment.

If you’ve been thinking about dermal fillers, it’s time to find out more about how you can combine this treatment with your next dental visit. You can have a great smile and a younger-looking face all in the same appointment! For more information about dermal fillers call Dr. Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network in downtown Washington, D.C. today!

Tooth colored fillings can repair your cavity and keep your smile looking as natural and beautiful as possible. But what should you know fillingsabout tooth-colored fillings? Why would you choose them over other filling options? Find out the answers to these questions and more with Dr. Leslie Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC.

What is a tooth-colored filling? 
A tooth colored filling is a dental filling which maintains the same natural color as your tooth. In the past, fillings were made up of other, less natural-looking materials which were darker in color. Tooth-colored fillings restore almost all of the strength the tooth had before it was damaged. Dentists can use tooth-colored fillings on both the front and back teeth without sacrificing the aesthetics of your smile.

What can I expect from a procedure for tooth-colored fillings? 
Dentists most often use tooth-colored fillings to repair a tooth after it has been damaged by decay or trauma. A filling procedure removes the decayed portion of the tooth, ensuring no decay is left behind. Then, dentists fill the tooth with the tooth-colored composite material, restoring its structure. A specialized UV light directed at the filling materials hardens and sets it. Your dentist will then reshape the crown of the tooth to fit perfectly into your bite.

Tooth Colored Fillings in Washington, DC
Tooth colored fillings can benefit almost any patient requiring a dental filling or dental bonding procedure. Tooth colored fillings can often be used in conjunction with other procedures. These can include a simple filling for a small cavity or root canal requiring filling the entire tooth down to the bottom of its roots. In addition to filling decayed teeth, the materials which make up tooth-colored fillings can reshape a chipped or misshapen tooth.

For more information on tooth colored fillings, please contact Dr. Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC. Call (202) 249-9131 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Bonner today!

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.
