How Botox treatment can take years off your appearance

For people plagued by unwanted lines and wrinkles on their face, Botox could be the perfect solution. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, this is just one of the facial rejuvenation treatments we offer to help combat the signs of ageing.

Ask your dentist about Botox treatment

Unwanted lines and wrinkles such as frown lines, smoker’s lines and crow’s feet can make you feel self-conscious as they can make you look much older than you feel.

Once upon a time the only option was plastic surgery, but now there are several non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures that can combat the premature signs of ageing and restore a more youthful appearance to your skin. Botox is among the most popular of these treatments.

The key to producing a natural-looking result is to carefully deliver a precise amount of botulinum toxin A (what Botox is made of) to the correct areas of the face. It works by blocking nerve impulses and forcing the tiny facial muscles to relax, thus smoothing out the skin.

Dentists are very knowledgeable about facial anatomy, which means they are well qualified to deliver facial rejuvenation treatments in a safe and controlled manner. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton our practitioners are highly experienced and fully trained in treatment with Botox and dermal fillers.

  • Frown lines

Process Time for Dental Implants

It used to be that bridges and dentures were the only the options for addressing missing teeth, but patients today can choose a more permanent and natural-looking solution. Vogue Dental Care offers dental implants for patients who wish to replace a missing tooth with the best choice possible.

The Procedure

dental implantsImplant procedures vary depending on the tooth in question, but the process typically consists of a two-stage process where a temporary abutment and crown is first attached and then replaced with a permanent implant set. The goal of the treatment is osseointegration—the process of titanium attaching to the bone. It is only after this that the tooth is “loaded” with the permanent crown.

The healing time or osseointegration takes approximately three months.

Regardless of the case, treatment starts with your dentist installing a temporary crown to protect the exposed abutment over the course of what may be a lengthy osseointegration period. What makes this extra tricky, however, is that the temporary tooth must not be in constant functional contact with other teeth.

Implant for a back tooth does not have a large cosmetic demand, so those single stage implants usually end up with an exposed healing abutment but no temporary crown.

Another factor to be considered is the location of the tooth. Molars at the back of the mouth sit on softer bones and it may take a longer amount of time before full ossointegration is possible. Two-stage implants allow enough time for this and can ensure the new implant does not move a lot.

At Vogue Dental Care, we will consider these things before carrying out the procedure. Our implants are made of the recommended titanium screw with a tooth-coloured crown. Our implants are labour-intensive and carried out by qualified and experienced practitioners.
