Beautiful smiles beyond teeth: Duxton Dental


There has been an exciting development at Duxton Dental to give you a spring in your step and a smile on your face this summer.

Dentists Christine Duxbury and Hayley Hall have both been extensively trained in the use of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) as a muscle relaxant that can be used reliably for both dental and cosmetic indications. Traditionally, lines between the eyes (frown lines), on the forehead and around the eyes (crows’ feet) have been the most commonly treated for cosmetic reasons. However, the number of new uses for these facial injectables has expanded substantially and now includes other areas of direct importance for dentists. Chronic tooth grinding, headaches and smile issues, due to undesired muscle overactivity, can be treated simply and non-invasively through the use of Botox.

 

It is interesting to know that worldwide, dentists are the providers of choice for treatments with Botox – it makes sense when you think about their day-to-day work and facial anatomy knowledge. Training and experience has shown Hayley and Christine that they can provide natural looking results, using a combination of skin rejuvenation and facial injectables such as Botox. Duxton Dental is also fortunate to have a qualified beauty therapist on staff.

The goal at Duxton Dental is not about making someone look completely different or 20 years younger, but as one of their patients says, “It is about making them look like they have had a fantastic holiday”.

A healthy smile: Duxton Dental wants to make sure you have something to smile about

Let’s not forget our bottom teeth.

Duxton Dental

Research tells us that whether you had braces or not and whether you have wisdom teeth or not, your bottom front teeth will crowd with age. As the teeth concertina up at the front they can cause extra pressure onto the back of the top teeth when you bite together and then move or chip your upper teeth. Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean and your gum health can deteriorate.
With age you also show more of your bottom teeth and less of your top teeth as gravity takes its toll. So the bottom teeth are more visible when you talk or smile.
For these reasons it is now recommended internationally that the retainer wires that are placed after braces are left there forever and replaced if needed.
If you notice your bottom teeth crowding as an adult, modern orthodontics can correct the problem in as little as eight weeks. Often invisible braces are an option. Once the bottom teeth are straight, any chips or wear on the top and bottom teeth can be replaced and that lovely youthful smile can return.
Duxton Dental’s expert team can also discuss reliable tooth whitening options for the return of that extra sparkle.
As part of a very thorough new patient examination, Duxton Dental completes a smile assessment to discuss all your cosmetic concerns and options. For more information visit duxtondental.co.nz or phone 03-348 5488.
