Do you want to know more about cosmetic dentistry? Read answers to popular questions our patients have about cosmetic care below:

Can I get Botox at the dentist’s?

Yes, patients can receive Botox® Cosmetic and dermal fillers at Butler Family Dentistry. Dr. Butler not only provides Botox but Juvederm® and Restylane®. She is certified to perform these treatments in her office and ensures that patients feel comfortable during their treatment. Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to complement other types of cosmetic dental care. After you brighten or straighten your smile, you can receive fillers or Botox for a youthful look.

How does Invisalign compare to metal braces?

Invisalign is a more discreet and comfortable treatment compared to metal braces. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can eat and brush their teeth without brackets or wires in the way. Traditional metal braces are best for patients who have moderate to severe orthodontic issues. Patients who wear braces need to get their brackets tightened and receive new wires at regular appointments. Sometimes the wires can poke and irritate the gums. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners conform to teeth and do not cause gum sensitivity or pain. Patients will receive a new aligner every two weeks to gradually shift their teeth in a more uniform position.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover uses multiple cosmetic treatments to treat multiple concerns. For example, patients can brighten their smiles, straighten crooked teeth, and strengthen weak teeth with a cosmetic smile makeover. If you have several cosmetic goals, schedule a consultation with us, and we will help you plan your treatment.

Should I choose dental bonding or porcelain veneers?

Tooth bonding treatment and dental veneers are similar treatments that use different materials to enhance the smile. Dental bonding uses biocompatible resin to address chips, cracks, discoloration, and other cosmetic imperfections. Porcelain ceramic veneers are thin shells that cover the front of each tooth. Bonding treatment is best for patients with minor cosmetic imperfections. Additionally, if you have a chip or crack in a single tooth, dental bonding can help. Porcelain veneers can cover each tooth in the smile line to create a straighter and brighter smile.
