Cosmetic Dentistry, Albuquerque

One form of cosmetic dentistry in Albuquerque is teeth whitening, which is used to brighten the natural color of the tooth enamel. It is an easy, non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. There are several different ways we can whiten a patient’s teeth. The home tooth whitening systems are the most popular method and can give patients dramatic results. 

Another popular form of cosmetic dentistry in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque is Botox. Contrary to popular belief, this practice is not just for enhancing physical appearances. It has been reported in medical research that “BoNT [Botox] is used for pain relief in numerous conditions including tension headaches, migraine headaches, post-herpetic neuralgia, and myofascial TMD,” according to PubMed Central. This form of cosmetic dentistry has also been used for important clinical uses for patients with chronic TMJ and facial pain. 

Dermal fillers can be another method used to complete cosmetic dentistry cases by creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth. The effects last anywhere from 6 to 12 months at which point the procedure needs to be repeated. Both Botox and dermal fillers are procedures that take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes.
