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

With cosmetic dentistry, there is a wealth of possibilities to create the smile of your dreams. 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.

Cosmetic dentistry explored: teeth whitening in Luton

Ask anyone to name a cosmetic dentistry treatment option, and many people will reply “teeth whitening”. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we find it easy to understand the popularity of whitening treatment. It is an efficient, reliable, fast, and safe method of improving your smile’s appearance without the need for invasive procedures – so long as you consult a fully qualified dentist.

cosmetic dentistryWhy you need a dentist

The teeth whitening treatments available at our Luton dental centre are extensively tested and regulated, and have been proven to be as safe as they are reliable and quick. It may be true that there are many other products out there that claim to whiten your teeth, but you would be best off giving them a wide berth. Mostly, these products will simply be ineffective and won’t produce the results you expect. Sometimes, however, they can contain levels of hydrogen peroxide that are higher than the legally safe limit, which can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums.

Think about it for a minute; with any other cosmetic dentistry procedure, you wouldn’t try to carry it out at home, would you? Sticking on your own veneers or trying to replace your own old metal amalgam fillings would seem ridiculous, something only seen in a terrible comedy film, with predictably terrible results. You should consider teeth whitening to be the same: as with all cosmetic dentistry, only to be carried out by a dentist.

Teeth whitening in Luton

There are three teeth whitening options available at Vogue Dental Care in Luton, and all of them begin with a cosmetic dentistry consultation. During this appointment your cosmetic dentist will assess the nature of your tooth staining to check that teeth whitening is the best option (for permanently stained or discoloured teeth, another option from our cosmetic dentistry menu, such as porcelain veneers, may be more appropriate).

Home whitening involves wearing custom-made whitening trays overnight for two weeks. We use the popular, effective NiteWhite system.

Zoom power whitening takes just an hour at our Luton clinic, whilst Enlighten Evolution whitening combines home and in-surgery treatment.

How dermal fillers and other facial aesthetics treatments can complement cosmetic dentistry

Dermal fillers and other facial aesthetics treatments are designed to get rid of unwanted folds, lines, and wrinkles on the skin, leaving you looking and feeling up to ten years younger. Vogue Dental Care in Luton offers a range of aesthetics treatments, which are the perfect way to halt and reverse the premature signs of ageing, and can be the perfect complement to cosmetic dental treatment.

dermal-fillersFacial rejuvenation without the need for surgery

The dermal fillers and Botox treatments we offer at our Lutondental clinic are a minimally invasive method of improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, without the need to go under the surgeon’s knife. Once upon a time, the only option for people who wanted to combat the signs of ageing was to have plastic surgery. As with all surgical procedures, there were slight risks associated with this option, considerable down time, and often treatments that were prohibitively expensive.

Dermal fillers, Botox, and other facial aesthetics treatments provided something of a revolution, opening up facial rejuvenation to more people than ever before. When such treatment is delivered by a medically trained professional such as a doctor, dentist, or nurse who has undergone specific additional training, the results are sure to be subtle but noticeable, both beautiful and natural.

There is no down time with procedures such as dermal fillers, and the results will be evident straight away. You will be back to your day-to-day life immediately, looking wonderfully rejuvenated and refreshed.

Dermal fillers in Luton

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we use Restylane dermal fillers, a world-renowned brand. It is a natural gel that is delivered via tiny, pain-free injection (we will either apply topical anaesthetic or include it in the filler) which instantly smooths out wrinkles, revitalises the skin, enhances the contours of the face, and plumps up the lips.

The results of Restylane dermal fillers are seen instantly and can last up to 12 months. We also offer treatment with Botox at Vogue Dental Care Luton. With this the results take a few days to become fully evident, and last on average for six months.

Combining cosmetic dentistry options can create your perfect smile

Cosmetic dentistry gives a dentist so many ways to make over a smile. At Luton clinic Vogue Dental Care we welcome men and women for cosmetic consultations, whether you have a particular procedure in mind or just know you are unhappy with your smile but do not know what you need to do to improve it.

cosmetic-dentistryIn many cases, combining two or more treatments from the extensive cosmetic dentistry menu at our Lutondental practice is the perfect way to create the smile you’ve so long dreamt of. We also find that many patients have benefitted from complementing their cosmetic dental treatment with facial aesthetics procedures such as Botox or dermal fillers, the overall result being that they look and feel up to ten years younger.

Veneers

Thin shells of porcelain placed over the front surfaces of the teeth. A single veneer can cover a permanently stained tooth, whilst a full set can create the perfect smile makeover.

Botox and dermal fillers: the perfect complement to cosmetic dental procedures

Facial aesthetics treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers are often the perfect way to complement cosmetic dental treatments. At Luton clinic Vogue Dental Care, our fully-qualified facial aesthetics practitioners will ensure that any treatment you choose to have will produce results that look as natural as they do alluring.

Botox in Luton: the basics

dermal-fillersIt’s true that Botox is probably the best-known facial aesthetics treatment around. When delivered by a medically-trained professional, such as a dentist or doctor, it offers a safe, predictable, and rapid way to reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we can also use Botox to treat excessive perspiration (sweating), which can cause misery for those who suffer from it. Furthermore, it has been proven to help with a condition called blepharospasm, in which the eyes twitch uncontrollably.

The first step is to come into our Luton clinic for a consultation with an experienced Botox practitioner. Treatment involves the use of a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin, which forces tiny facial muscles in contraction to relax, thus smoothing out the appearance of the skin on top and lessening any lines and wrinkles.

Common areas for treatment include the forehead, the area around the eyes, and around the lips. Botox can successfully treat crow’s feet, smokers’ lines, and other unwanted furrows, wrinkles, folds and lines that can cause your skin to have a prematurely aged appearance.

Treatment is delivered by a fully-qualified practitioner here at our Luton clinic. It involves using tiny, pain-free injections, and results will take a few days to fully show. They will be both natural and beautiful, and depending on the area that you have treated, can last from three to six months before repeat treatment is required.
