BOTOX® and Juvéderm® Fillers in Marietta
In addition to offering popular cosmetic dental services like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, we're also pleased to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvéderm®. Dr. Thornton is specially trained and certified to administer injections with both cosmetic solutions. As a result, you can look forward to enjoying a younger-looking appearance that will enhance your confidence and self-esteem.
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX is a cosmetic treatment that can help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. That's not all BOTOX can be used for, though. Dr. Thornton may also recommend treatment if you struggle with migraines, TMJ dysfunction, or routine teeth grinding (bruxism).
When used specifically for wrinkles, BOTOX works by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses responsible for creating wrinkles in the first place. Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and comes with little to no downtime or recovery. Afterwards, you can look forward to enjoying your results for between four and six months.
What Is Juvéderm®?
While BOTOX is excellent for targeting wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, Juvederm is designed to target those lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, specifically those that can be classified as "smile lines."
Unlike BOTOX, which prevents muscle contractions, Juvederm is a filler that temporarily adds volume to your skin. It does this using hyaluronic acid (HA), which is both naturally-occurring and FDA approved. Treatment takes just a few minutes to complete but the results last for up to a full year.
Why Choose Thornton Dental Wellness?
Why should you choose Thornton Dental Wellness for treatment with BOTOX or Juvederm? First and foremost, because of Dr. Thornton's advanced training. Second, as a dental practice we're very familiar with the anatomy of the head and neck. We administer your treatment with exceptional accuracy and precision. We also administer your treatment the next time you visit us for your normal six-month checkup and exam, saving you time and money.
