BOTOX Treatment

Botox Treatment - After And Before
BOTOX® Cosmetic Wrinkle Treatment

As the years go by, facial muscles beneath our skin contract with every facial expression and eventually form facial wrinkles called frown lines, brow furrows and crows feet. These "dynamic" wrinkles deepen with age and often create a terse, stressed appearance.

BOTOX® Cosmetic wrinkle treatment at Harmony Dental Arts in Clifton, offers individuals with dynamic wrinkles smoother skin and a natural well-rested appearance. A Botox treatment involves an injection of a minuscule amount of botulinum toxin type A, an FDA-approved substance that is now commonly referred to as Botox.

BOTOX reduces wrinkles by relaxing select muscles and limiting their ability to contract. After treatment, the overlying skin lays flat and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.

Lumineers

Lumineers - After And Before

A Lumineer is a porcelain veneer which creates a beautiful smile without compromising the structure of your teeth. "I am very excited about this technique, as I believe it improves the quality of a person's life while being safe and painless," explains Dr. Maria Sokolina

Lumineers are porcelain veneers that fit on the surface of your existing teeth. They are constructed out of extraordinarily strong, contact-lens thin porcelain, and are a painless cosmetic solution to permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned, or spaced teeth, transforming them into a naturally white, radiant smile.

Dr.Sokolina explains, "While most traditional veneers require your teeth to be ground down to be placed, which is painful and irreversible, Lumineers are placed on top of existing teeth without having to remove or compromise your tooth structure."

In addition to eliminating the pain of traditional veneer procedures, Lumineers can be placed on top of existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them. Dr. Sokolina offers a free consultation for new patients providing them with their options on smile restoration, including Lumineers. "We discuss your specific issues, learn what your goals are, and then decide on the best treatment for your individual case is."

If Lumineers address your needs, an impression of your teeth will be made and shipped to the lab. A custom set of veneers will be crafted from the impression. Next the teeth will be lightly etched to prepare for placement, and the Lumineers will be bonded to the natural teeth - with no shots, no drilling, and no pain.

Average treatment time is only two visits, making Lumineers more cost effective than traditional veneers, and they are clinically proven to last over 20 years.

"Lumineers is a perfect example of how modern engineering can aid medicine in very practical ways - it is a great leap forward and offers a great alternative to traditional methods," concludes Dr.Sokolina
