Advances in cosmetic dentistry now mean you can subtly straighten your teeth

Straighter teeth are one of the most common requests in cosmetic dentistry. Thanks to advances in orthodontics in recent years, the team at Luton’s Vogue Dental Care are now able to offer several ways for adults to get the straighter teeth they have always wanted, without having to wear obvious metal braces.

vogue-cosmetic-dentistryBraces are commonplace for teenagers and children, but as cosmetic dentistry has increased in popularity, more adults than ever before are looking for help to straighten their teeth. Whether you missed out on orthodontic treatment when you were younger or you had treatment only to find your teeth have relapsed into their old position, cosmetic dentistry offers a solution for you.

When you come in for a cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Luton practice, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and will establish what your treatment preferences are before talking through the pros and cons of all appropriate options. That way you are able to make an educated choice about your treatment.

Discreet orthodontic options at Vogue Dental Care

We offer both cosmetic braces and aligners to straighten teeth at our Luton clinic. The best option for you will depend on the amount and type of correction required, as well as on your lifestyle and personal preference.

Six Month Smiles and Cfast braces

Six Month Smiles and Cfast are very popular cosmetic braces, with an average treatment time of just six months. They work this quickly because they are not designed for major orthodontic correction, focussing on the front teeth – those that are visible when you smile. They are made of clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, so will blend in with your teeth.

Inman Aligner and Invisalign

Clear aligners have the additional benefit of being removable as well as discreet. This makes maintaining dental hygiene during treatment a breeze. Invisalign comprises a series of aligners whilst the Inman Aligner is a standalone device.

Botox and facial aesthetics: the perfect complement to cosmetic dentistry

Facial aesthetics treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers are excellent complementary treatments to cosmetic dentistry. Many patients at Luton’s Vogue Dental Care find that by combining cosmetic dental treatments with facial aesthetics they enjoy an excellent boost to their confidence, and are left both looking and feeling several years younger.

What is Botox for?

botox-vogueBotox is perhaps the best-known facial aesthetics treatment on the market. It involves using a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin to reduce unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face, restoring a more youthful appearance.

At Luton’s Vogue Dental Care, our skilled cosmetic dental team have undertaken additional training to be fully qualified in both Botox and dermal fillers.

How treatment works

Treatment with Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles, forcing them to relax and smoothing out the skin to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is commonly used to treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, to lift the jowls, and to combat pockets under the eyes. Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat excessive sweating.

The treatment is delivered in a series of tiny, pain-free injections, which are precisely targeted to produce natural-looking results. Although a dentist may not be the first person you would think of contacting for facial aesthetics treatments, their excellent knowledge of facial anatomy and structure means that they are in an excellent position to deliver exactly the right amount of treatment to create results that look beautiful and natural, without looking over-done.

You will only require a short appointment at our Luton clinic for treatment with botulinum toxin or dermal fillers. While results from dermal filler treatment are visible straight away, with Botox the full results take a few days to fully develop. Although not a permanent treatment, you can expect results to last at least three months.

Teeth whitening: cosmetic dentistry’s most popular procedure

Cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term that covers a wide range of treatments both large and small. Here at Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our skilled cosmetic dental team like nothing more than seeing a patient transformed with a smile makeover. Whatever treatment you require, you will be treated with care, respect, and dignity at all times.

vogue-teeth-whiteningHere we explore what is probably the most frequently requested procedure in cosmetic dentistry: teeth whitening treatment.

How it works

Teeth whitening, when provided by a dentist, is a safe, effective and predictable method of removing everyday stains from your teeth. Our teeth get easily stained by foods and drinks, by smoking and by some medications. Teeth whitening treatment is designed to get rid of these stains and leave your teeth several shades brighter. One of the whitening systems used at our Luton dental practice even enables you to choose exactly what shade of brightness you want

We have three options for patients interested in whitening treatment here at our Luton clinic. Your dentist will invite you in for a cosmetic dentistry consultation and check that whitening treatment is suitable for you, before running through the options.

Home whitening

Home whitening uses bespoke teeth-whitening trays and dental bleaching gel to remove stains from your teeth while you sleep. You simply place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks.

Zoom power whitening

Zoom power whitening is performed by your dentist here in our Luton practice, and requires just a single, hour-long session. You just need to sit back and relax while the gel gets to work, with a special light used to activate it.

Enlighten combination whitening

Enlighten combines home whitening with a final session here in our Luton practice. This system also gives you the opportunity to pick the shade of whiteness you want to achieve, so that the results will be just as you expected.

Botox and dermal fillers – a facelift without the surgery

Botox and other facial aesthetics treatments are an ideal option to rejuvenate your skin without the need to go under the knife. Here at Luton’s Vogue Dental Care, our team has undertaken additional training to be fully qualified in the provision of facial aesthetics treatments.

Beating the signs of ageing

vogue-botox-247054528Facial aesthetics treatments, such as Botox and dermal fillers, have been designed to combat premature signs of ageing that can blight our skin and make us look far older than we feel. Our diet, our lifestyle, and the stresses and strains of daily life all take their toll on our skin.

Habits such as spending too much time in the sun without sunscreen, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, or not drinking enough water can all have visible effects on our skin. Lines, wrinkles and folds can start to appear on the forehead, around the eyes, nose, and lips, among other areas. The facial aesthetics treatments available at Vogue Dental Care in Luton are designed to lessen the appearance of unwanted folds, wrinkles and lines.

Botox is most popularly used to smooth out frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead, and to treat pockets under the eyes. It is also effective at lifting the jowls, and can even be used to treat excessive sweating, which can seriously affect the self-confidence of those who suffer from it.

Why a dentist makes an ideal Botox practitioner

Dentists and other medical professionals are excellent candidates for delivering facial aesthetics treatment, because of their expert knowledge of facial structure and anatomy. This means they will deliver exactly the right amount of treatment in exactly the right location to produce a totally natural-looking result.

The facial aesthetics team here at our Luton practice are all fully qualified to deliver Botox and dermal fillers, which are administered with a series of small, pain-free injections. Results can last up to six months, depending on which area is treated.

Cosmetic dentistry can be seen as a lifestyle choice, and at our Luton clinic we firmly believe that an investment in your smile can be one of the best decisions you make. If you feel embarrassed about any aspect of your smile this can cause you to hide it away in public or even not smile at all, which can give people the wrong impression about you can impact on your personal and professional life.

At our Luton dental practice we offer an extensive range of cosmetic treatments. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, why not book a smile makeover consultation to see what we could do for you?

When you come into our Luton centre for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, your dentist will listen carefully to what you like or dislike about your current smile, and what you would like to achieve from treatment. They will then carefully examine your teeth, gums and surrounding structures, before running through the pros and cons of all appropriate treatments.

We appreciate that this is a big decision for you, so we will give you time to think about your options before we draw up a finalised treatment plan. This will detail all treatments and will include follow-up appointments, projected length of treatment and projected costs.

Wrinkles, lines and folds can put in an appearance as we get older, making us feel old before our time. Facial aesthetics treatments are designed to combat these issues, with just a brief appointment at our clinic and no need for surgical intervention.

How Botox treatment works

Botox is perhaps the best-known facial aesthetics treatment on the market. It has many uses, most commonly treating frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. Patients suffering from blepharospasm – uncontrollable twitching around the eyes – have also benefitted from treatment with Botox at our Luton clinic.

A purified version of the botulinum type A toxin, Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the tiny muscles in the face, forcing these muscles to relax and consequently smoothing out the surface of the skin, lessening the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Medical professionals such as dentists and doctors are excellent options for patients seeking facial aesthetics treatments, because they have expert knowledge of facial structure and anatomy, and can deliver just enough treatment in exactly the right location, in a safe and controlled manner. The results of Botox treatment will look completely natural, will take a few days to fully develop, and can last for between three and six months.

How combining treatments in cosmetic dentistry can have you smiling again

Cosmetic dentistry is the specialist area that deals with the aesthetic appearance of the teeth and gums. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our skilled cosmetic team have helped scores of patients to improve the way their smile looks, and with it boost their self-confidence, with the help of cosmetic dentistry.

cosmetic dentistryWe offer a number of aesthetic treatments at our Luton dental practice, and whilst some patients know exactly what treatment they want when they come to see us, others know only that they do not like some aspect of their current smile, and would like to improve it.

When you come into our Luton practice for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, you will meet an experienced dentist who will carefully examine your teeth, gums and surrounding structures, and will listen to what you like and dislike about your current smile, as well as what you would like to achieve (such as straighter teeth or whiter teeth). They will then recommend the best treatment options.

Sometimes, one treatment is all that is required, but in other cases patients benefit from combining two or more options from our extensive cosmetic dentistry menu. Whatever your requirements, your dentist will draw up a detailed treatment plan including projected costs and timescales.

Individual treatment combinations will depend on your personal needs, but one popular option is to combine discreet orthodontics with teeth-whitening, resulting in a beautifully straight, bright smile. We are currently offering free home teeth whitening treatment (worth £350) to all patients who complete a course of orthodontic treatment with a fixed appliance. Both Cfast and Six Month Smiles discreet, tooth-coloured braces are available at our Luton practice.

Another popular combination is to replace old metal amalgam fillings with white fillings and crowns. From teeth whitening to full-mouth restorations with dental implants, cosmetic dentistry has something to offer everyone.

Botox and filler treatment to rejuvenate your skin

Botox and dermal filler treatments are increasingly popular with women and men who want to rejuvenate their skin and combat the premature signs of ageing. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we know that feeling good about your appearance needs more than just a gorgeous smile, which is why we have added a number of facial aesthetics treatments to our roster.

Why treatment is necessary

botoxThe stresses and strains of daily living can take their toll on our skin. Unwanted lines and wrinkles are prone to appearing on areas such as the forehead, brows and around the lips. Environmental factors, diet, and lifestyle choices such as smoking can all have an effect on our skin, and lines, wrinkles and folds are the consequence.

Treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox are excellent non-surgical ways of tackling these premature signs of ageing. When delivered by a medical professional such as a dentist, you can rest assured that just enough treatment will be provided in just the right areas to create a natural, beautiful result.

Dentists have excellent knowledge of facial structure and anatomy, and the experienced facial aesthetics team at our Luton clinic have undertaken additional training to be fully-qualified in providing treatment with dermal fillers and Botox.

How treatment works

Dermal fillers such as Restylane are used to replace lost hyaluronic acid from the skin, restoring a plumper, more hydrated, youthful appearance. Local anaesthetic is applied before fillers are injected, or alternatively incorporated into the filler injection, so treatment is painless.

Botox is a purified form of botulinum type A toxin, which when injected into the skin blocks nerve impulses to tiny facial muscles, causing them to relax and smoothing out the appearance of the skin to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Cosmetic dentistry explored: teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our cosmetic dentists have helped many patients to boost the appearance of their smile, and with it their self-confidence, with teeth whitening treatment.

How it works

cosmetic dentistryTeeth whitening treatment uses special dental bleaching gel to gently remove everyday stains from the teeth. Our teeth are easily stained, by foods and drinks including tea, coffee, red wine and cola, as well as by such habits as cigarette or cigar smoking, and by some medicines or medicated mouthwashes. Over time, our teeth often lose some of their natural sparkle. Teeth whitening is designed to get it back.

As well as being one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment options at our Luton practice, it is also one of the fastest. Depending on which option you choose, teeth whitening takes between two weeks and just one hour. Your dentist will discuss the best treatment option for you at your initial consultation.

Vogue Dental Care in Luton offers two teeth whitening treatment options as part of an extensive cosmetic dentistry menu: home whitening using the popular Enlighten system, and in-chair power whitening using Zoom.

Home teeth whitening

Home teeth whitening involves the use of custom-made whitening trays and whitening gel. You put a small amount of the gel into the trays and wear them overnight or for short periods during the day for approximately two weeks, after which your teeth will look much brighter and whiter.

Power teeth whitening

Power teeth whitening is carried out by your dentist here at our Luton practice. After protecting your lips and gums, your practitioner will apply whitening gel to your teeth and will use a special lamp to activate it. All you need to do is sit back and relaxed whilst the gel gets to work. Whiter teeth in just one hour – that really is something to smile about!

Why Botox is best delivered by a dentist

If you have unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face, Botox can be the perfect option to rejuvenate your appearance without the need for invasive treatment, and without having to take time out of your schedule. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our dental staff have undertaken additional training in facial aesthetics, because we know that feeling good about your appearance means more than just having a beautiful smile. We also know that looking great helps you to feel great; facial aesthetics treatments can significantly boost your self-esteem.

How Botox works

botoxBotox is a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin. It is delivered in a gel form to combat the lines and wrinkles that are prone to appear on our skin as we get older, making you look and feel up to ten years younger after a single treatment.

The Botox gel is painlessly injected into carefully chosen sites on your face, blocking nerve impulses to tiny facial muscles and forcing them to relax, which in turn smooths out the skin and improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Here at Vogue Dental Care in Luton it is just one of the facial aesthetics treatments on offer – all of which have been designed to boost your appearance and your self-confidence after just one appointment.

Unlike dermal fillers, it takes a few days for the full results of Botox treatment to be seen. They will last up to six months before a repeat treatment is required, depending on which area is treated.

Why a dentist is a great treatment provider

The key to Botox treatment is delivering just enough of the gel into just the right places for a beautiful, natural-looking result. Dentists and other medical professionals have expert knowledge of facial anatomy and structure, meaning they can provide exactly the right amount of gel for a natural look.
