Cosmetic dentistry: it’s all about you – how to achieve your dream smile

Cosmetic dentistry is increasingly popular with men and women across the UK, at least in part because celebrities are endorsing and showing off its benefits. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we are keen to point out that good cosmetic dentistry is all about you.

cosmetic-dentistry-lutonWhat worked for your favourite reality TV star or footballer may not create the smile of your dreams. And at our Luton dental clinic we believe cosmetic dentistry means making smile dreams come true.

The ideal smile means different things to different people. If you don’t believe us, do a quick straw poll among your friends, family, or colleagues. Ask them what a dream smile means to them and the chances are you will receive several different answers. You might want brighter, whiter teeth while your sister might simply wish to get rid of her visible metal fillings, your best friend might wish he had straighter teeth and your grandpa would love realistic looking teeth to replace his loose dentures.

The good news is, in all of these situations and many more besides, the cosmetic dentistry team at Vogue Dental Care in Luton can help.

We treat every patient as an individual at our Luton dental practice, and know there is no one-size-fits all solution in cosmetic dentistry. Instead, we will work closely with you to create the smile of your dreams – whatever treatment that involves.

Let’s take the scenarios above:

You want brighter, whiter teeth. Teeth whitening is the most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry and could be a good choice, although if your teeth are permanently stained porcelain veneers are the best option.

Your sister’s metal fillings can easily be replaced with strong, tooth coloured alternatives that will blend in and become invisible, whilst our Luton dental practice offers a range of discreet teeth straightening solutions that can give your best friend that beautifully aligned smile he’s always wanted.

And as for grandpa? Not only can he have a brand new set of lifelike cosmetic dentures, but even better at our Luton clinic we can place dental implants to hold his teeth firmly in place.

Using cosmetic dentistry to create the smile you’ve always dreamt of

Cosmetic dentistry is increasingly popular with both women and men across the UK as more and more people start to realise the true value of a beautiful smile. Vogue Dental Care in Luton has an extensive cosmetic dentistry menu, offering treatments large and small designed to create the smile of your dreams.

cosmetic-dentistry-lutonAlmost half of the adult population in the UK is unhappy with the way their smile looks, and 75% feel uncomfortable when asked to smile for a photograph. If this applies to you, a cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Luton dental clinic could be the first step to transforming not just your smile, but also your self-confidence and with it your life.

Luton cosmetic dentistry options

When you come to Vogue Dental Care in Luton for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, you will be seen by an experienced cosmetic dentist, who will find out what your ideal smile would look like before undertaking a complete clinical examination. They will then discuss the pros and cons of all relevant treatment options so that you can make an informed choice before your treatment begins.

Some people need just one procedure whilst others benefit from combining two or more options from our Luton dental practice’s extensive cosmetic dentistry menu. Whatever your requirements, your dentist will draw you up a fully customised treatment plan, so that you know exactly what to expect.

Popular treatment options from out Luton cosmetic dentistry menu include:

Porcelain veneers

These thin porcelain shells are often described as being like false fingernails for the teeth. Unlike false nails, however, which have a short lifespan, with proper care and regular visits to your dentist your veneers could last for ten years or more. They can be used to improve the appearance of a wide range of imperfections, from permanent staining to minor spacing or alignment issues.

Teeth whitening

The most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry, when delivered by a dentist this is a safe and effective method of removing everyday stains from the teeth.

Replacing metal fillings

At our Luton clinic we can safely replace metal amalgam fillings with tooth-coloured alternatives.

Cosmetic dentistry to brighten your smile: teeth whitening vs veneers

One of the most commonly heard requests in the world of cosmetic dentistry is for brighter, whiter teeth. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we offer a number of ways to achieve just that, so if you are one of the 64% people in the UK who want their teeth to be a lighter shade, why not join us for a consultation to find out how we can help?

cosmetic-dentistry-lutonTwo of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options at our Luton dental practice are teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Both have their merits and are effective methods of lightening your teeth. Your perfect treatment will depend on your individual circumstances, and among the things your dentist will take into account at your cosmetic dentistry consultation are:

  • Nature of your tooth staining/discolouration
  • How fast you need results
  • The general condition of your teeth
  • Your own treatment preferences
  • Various lifestyle factors

Your dentist will work with you to determine the best treatment to suit your needs. Here, we look at the advantages of both teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. . .

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular procedure in the world of cosmetic dentistry, and at our Luton dental practice we offer three options:

Power whitening – Requiring just a single, hour-long session with a cosmetic dentist here in our Luton clinic, this is the fastest route to whiter teeth.

Home whitening – This option takes two weeks and involves using custom-made whitening trays in the comfort of your own home.

Combination whitening – Using the Enlighten system, we combine home and in-clinic whitening for a guaranteed B1 shade of whiteness.

Teeth whitening is:

  • Fast
  • Gentle
  • Requires no preparation of the teeth
  • Lasts at least six months

Veneers

Thin porcelain shells, veneers are placed over the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their appearance, and requires minimal preparation. Your dentist can use a single veneer for a permanently stained tooth, or a full set. Well-looked-after veneers should last for years.

Veneers are:

  • A long-term solution
  • Suitable for permanent discolouration
  • Can also help with issues such as spacing, uneven, or mildly misaligned teeth

Dermal fillers: an excellent complement to cosmetic dentistry

Dermal fillers are a great way to combat premature signs of ageing and restore a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance to your facial skin. Vogue Dental Care in Luton offers filler treatment to help with a number of common cosmetic concerns, as part of our facial aesthetics menu.

dermal-fillersDelivered by fully qualified and highly experienced professionals, with dermal fillers you will see results immediately, and they should last for several months before a repeat course of treatment is required.

Whilst popular as a standalone treatment, at Vogue Dental Care in Luton we often find that treatment with dermal fillers can be the perfect complement to cosmetic dental procedures.

Our Luton dental clinic offers a number of cosmetic dental treatments to create a beautiful smile makeover, whatever your treatment requirements. What better way to complete your makeover than by using dermal fillers to leave you looking and feeling up to ten years younger?

How dermal fillers work

Dermal fillers work by replacing lost hyaluronic acid from the skin. As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of ageing caused by the loss of this naturally-occurring acid. This often takes the form of unwanted lines, wrinkles, or folds.

Many lifestyle factors can contribute to a prematurely aged appearance. Spending too much time in the sun without adequate protection, smoking cigarettes, air pollution, and the stresses and strains of everyday life can all leave their mark on the skin. Fillers are an effective way to reverse these signs.

Luton dermal fillers

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we us the popular Restylane system of dermal fillers as part of the facial rejuvenation process. Suitable areas for treatment include:

  • The chin
  • The area between the mouth and chin
  • Peri oral lines
  • Lines between the nose and mouth

The skin is plumped up and filled out, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Depending on the area treated, results can last up to 12 months.

Fillers such as Restylane are also effective in providing lip enhancement treatments, which can be the perfect way to show off your new smile.

Cosmetic dentistry: exploring ways to make over your smile

Modern cosmetic dentistry give a dentist a multitude of ways to make over your smile. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we believe that everybody deserves a smile to be proud of, and we offer a range of cosmetic treatments – from a quick, single procedure to a complex full smile makeover – to help you attain the smile of your dreams.

cosmetic-dentistry-lutonWhilst everybody deserves to be proud of their smile, statistics show that the majority of people aren’t. In a recent survey, more than 70% of people surveyed said that they disliked their smile so much that they didn’t feel comfortable smiling in photographs, whilst 25% lacked confidence in their smile to such an extent that they believed it impacted negatively on their relationships – both professional and personal.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With cosmetic dentistry, almost anything is possible, and it could be far quicker and simpler than you think to create a smile you’ll love so much you want to show it off to everyone. If you are unhappy with anything about your current smile, why not come into Vogue Dental Care in Luton for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist?

Luton cosmetic dentistry

We have an extensive cosmetic dentistry menu at our Luton dental practice, and your dentist will find the perfect treatment to suit your individual wants and needs. As well as a clinical examination and assessment of your current smile, they will find out what you want to achieve from treatment, and take lifestyle factors into account whenever possible.

Popular treatments from the cosmetic dentistry menu at Vogue Dental Care, Luton, include:

Teeth whitening

The most popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is great as a standalone smile booster or a complement to other treatments. It should only be carried out by a dentist.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded over the surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance. They can correct issues with permanent discolouration, spacing, and alignment.

Discreet orthodontics

Either tooth-coloured braces or clear, removable aligners can be used to straighten your teeth both quickly and discreetly.

Dermal fillers and Botox – how to get great skin without surgery

Facial aesthetics treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox are designed to give you younger looking skin without the need for surgery. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we offer such treatments either as standalone options or as the perfect way to round of a cosmetic dental procedure such as a smile makeover.

dermal-fillers-and-botoxIt wasn’t so long ago that if you wanted to alleviate the premature signs of ageing on your skin you had no one to turn to but a plastic surgeon. This was obviously a barrier to treatment for a lot of people. Plastic surgery procedures were costly, and could require a significant amount of down time to recover from. As with any surgery, there were also small risks associated – whilst problems were very rare, they were still enough to make some people think twice.

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we believe that everybody deserves to look their best and to take pride in their appearance, which is why we are pleased to offer an alternative to surgery – using dermal fillers and Botox to improve the appearance of unwanted lines, wrinkles, and folds on the skin.

Sometimes referred to as “medical aesthetics” when delivered by a trained medical professional such as a dentist, doctor, prescribing nurse or prescribing pharmacist, these treatments involve minimal intervention and no down time at all. In the vast majority of cases you can go straight back to your daily activities after having treatment with dermal fillers.

A dentist, doctor, or other medical professional is an excellent candidate to provide dermal fillers and Botox treatments, because they have a very good knowledge of facial anatomy and structure, and are able to deliver exactly the right amount of treatment in exactly the right place to create results that whilst noticeable are not overdone, and look totally natural.

At Vogue Dental Care Luton we use the popular Restylane brand of dermal fillers, which are known for their beautiful yet natural results. Your practitioner will deliver the filler using a pain-free injection, and results will be instantly visible.

With cosmetic dentistry, you can have the smile of your dreams

Cosmetic dentistry has grown rapidly in popularity in recent years, which means more and more people are now achieving the smile of their dreams. Here at Vogue Dental Care in Luton we believe that everybody deserves a beautiful, radiant smile to be proud of, and offer a number of cosmetic dental treatments designed to help you achieve yours.

cosmetic-dentistry-lutonOnce upon a time, not so long ago, cosmetic dentistry was only accessible to celebrities. Like many things that start in Hollywood, however, demand soon spreads to the general public, and thanks to rapid advances in both materials and techniques, cosmetic dentistry is now available to anyone who wants it.

This is great news, especially because some 70% of the UK population don’t feel comfortable smiling in photographs. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we dream of a world where everybody is happy to show off their beautiful smile. Here are some ways that we can help you achieve yours. . .

Cosmetic dentistry in Luton

Cosmetic orthodontics

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and the bite – and in the 21st Century, it doesn’t have to equate metal braces. At our Luton dental practice we offer teeth straightening with cosmetic braces (Cfast and Six Month Smiles) and with clear, removable aligners – Invisalign and the Inman Aligner.

Teeth whitening

Probably the most famous procedure in cosmetic dentistry, when carried out by a dentist this is a safe, reliable, and quick way to brighten up your smile by removing stains from the teeth. We offer three teeth whitening systems at our Luton practice: home whitening, Zoom power whitening, and Enlighten combination whitening (the only system to guarantee a B1 shade of whiteness – the brightest shade available in the UK).

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are an easy way for your dentist to perform a fast smile makeover. Thin shells of porcelain placed over the front surfaces of the teeth, veneers can be used to hide permanent discolouration and staining, to reinforce and cover small chips and cracks, to close small gaps and to fix minor issues with tooth alignment.

Dermal fillers and Botox: perfect complements to cosmetic dental treatment

Treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox are an increasingly popular method of combating premature signs of ageing. Here at Luton clinic Vogue Dental Care, we’ve found that many of our clients have enjoyed having facial aesthetics procedures after completing a course of cosmetic dental treatment.

dermal-fillersIn many cases, if you have invested the time and the effort in boosting your smile with the help of cosmetic dentistry, dermal fillers and botulinum type A toxin treatment can be the ultimate complementary procedures to leave you looking and feeling up to ten years younger. We’ve seen the results time and again in the many happy patients of our practice – if you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, dermal fillers, Botox, or even a combination of all of the above, we invite you to join us at our Luton dental clinic for a no-obligation consultation.

The benefits of treatment with dermal fillers

For many years, people who wanted to reverse or slow down the signs of ageing – wrinkles, lines, hollows, folds and such like on the facial skin – had only one option, and that was plastic surgery. Expensive, daunting, and requiring time off from work or socialising to recover, this was not the ideal treatment for everybody.

Thanks to the advent of dermal fillers and other facial aesthetics procedures, there is now an affordable and non-invasive alternative, with no down time at all. It may sound too good to be true, but many patients at our Luton dental and aesthetics clinic have enjoyed the benefits.

A dentist is an excellent candidate for delivering facial aesthetics treatments, because they have good knowledge of facial structure, and can deliver the right amount of treatment in the right area to create results that, whilst noticeable by friends and family, are also subtle and entirely natural in appearance.

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we use Restylane, one of the world’s leading brands of dermal fillers. Suitable areas for treatment include: the lips, cheeks, facial contours, and other areas where there are unwanted lines or wrinkles.

Treatment involves a pain-free injection at our Luton clinic, and results are seen immediately.

How with cosmetic dentistry, a dentist can create your dream smile

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we welcome women and men for consultations with a cosmetic dentist to see how they can boost the appearance of their smile, and with it their self-confidence. Oftentimes, patients are pleasantly surprised at how short many treatment times are.

Cosmetic dentistry in Luton

cosmetic-dentistry-lutonYour journey towards the smile of your dreams begins with a cosmetic dentistry consultation here at our Luton clinic. At this appointment, your dentist will establish what you like and dislike about your current smile, along with what the ideal results of any treatment will be (straighter teeth, whiter teeth, less of your gums on display when you smile – whatever you dream of). Then, after performing an in-depth clinical examination, your dentist will talk you through the best way to achieve those smile goals.

A lot of the time, the best course of treatment will involve combining two or more options from the extensive cosmetic dentistry menu at our Luton practice. Whatever treatment you require, your cosmetic dentist will create you a completely customised treatment plan, detailing the order and predicted length of any treatments, as well as projected costs. That way, there will be no nasty surprises and you will know exactly what to expect.

Feel free to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have at any stage of treatment. The key to good cosmetic dentistry is working together to create your dream smile, and we want you to be entirely happy with all of your treatment choices.

After completing a course of cosmetic dentistry, many patients at our Luton clinic enjoy complementing these treatments with a facial aesthetics procedure, such as Botox anti-wrinkle treatment or dermal fillers. These will be delivered by a fully qualified professional, to ensure that the results are subtle but noticeable, beautiful and natural.

Popular treatments on the cosmetic dentistry menu at our Luton clinic include:

Teeth whitening

Performed by a dentist, this is a safe and fast way to remove common tooth staining.

Discreet orthodontics

Subtle ways to straighten your teeth.

How dermal fillers can take the years off – without the need for surgery

Dermal fillers, Botox, and other facial aesthetic treatments offer a way to take years off your appearance without the need for plastic surgery. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we’ve found that these procedures are increasingly popular. Non-invasive, painless, and producing instant results, it’s not difficult to understand the appeal of dermal fillers.

dermal-fillersIf your feel that your skin has a prematurely aged appearance, or if you have lines and wrinkles that are getting you down and affecting your self-esteem, read on to discover how treatment with dermal fillers could help – as well as why you must always consult a fully qualified and experienced professional.

Dermal fillers in Luton

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we appreciate that it may initially seem strange to consult a dental practice for facial aesthetics treatment. However, a medically trained professional – a dentist, a doctor, or a nurse – who has undergone additional training and attained accredited qualifications in dermal fillers, Botox, or other facial aesthetics procedures, is in fact an excellent person to provide treatment.

Because of their in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, they will be able to deliver exactly the right amount of treatment in exactly the right location to produce results that, while noticeable and beautiful, will also look completely natural. There is no danger of the dreaded “frozen” look that excessive or badly-delivered treatment can cause, and which the tabloids love to terrify us with.

Dermal fillers are an excellent alternative to plastic surgery for treating deep lines, hollows, folds and wrinkles on the face. They are also an effective and natural method of lip enhancement.

As we get older, our skin loses some of its natural collagen, which can lead to the loss of volume in many areas and a sunken appearance in the cheeks. Dermal fillers such as Restylane, which we use at our Luton dental and aesthetic practice, work by replacing this lost collagen, filling out hollows, smoothing out wrinkles, plumping up the lips and improving the contours of your face.

Restylane is delivered via careful pain-free injection at our Luton clinic. Depending on the area treated, results last between six and 12 months.
