Cosmetic dentistry: your ticket to a perfect smile

Cosmetic dentistry has seen a huge increase in popularity in recent years. At Luton’s Vogue Dental Care, our skilled team of cosmetic dentists are thrilled to be able to help more people than ever before to achieve the smile of their dreams.

cosmetic dentistrySome 50 per cent of the UK population are unhappy with some aspect of how their smile looks. Whilst cosmetic dentistry was once the exclusive territory of the rich and famous, huge advances in dental techniques and materials mean that is now open to more people than ever before.

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.

Botox and fillers: the perfect complement to cosmetic dental treatment

Facial aesthetics treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers can be the perfect way to complement cosmetic dental treatment. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our dentists have undertaken additional training to be fully qualified in facial aesthetics. If you’ve made the investment in your smile, you’ll want to feel like a million dollars when you show it off to friends and family. Botox and dermal fillers can give your skin that extra boost for a result that will take your nearest and dearest’s breath away.

botoxThe team at our Luton dental practice know that feeling good about yourself means more than just having a beautiful smile. 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.

What is Botox?

botoxBotox is a gel made from a purified form of the botulinum type A toxin.

The treatment we offer at our Luton dental spa is a fast and painless way to improve the appearance of these lines and wrinkles, with many patients reporting a significant boost to their self-confidence after just one treatment.

As we age, lines and wrinkles appear on the forehead, around the lips and the jowls. Botox can be used in all these areas, as well as to treat pockets beneath the eyes.

Botulinum type A toxin is made into a purified gel, which your practitioner will inject into the desired area. For facial aesthetic treatment, it works by blocking nerve impulses to the tiny muscles in the face, forcing them to relax and smoothing out the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The treatment is painless and only takes a matter of minutes. The full effects will develop over a few days, and depending on which area of your face you have treated can last up to six months before a repeat treatment is required.

What treatments are covered by the term “cosmetic dentistry”?

There are many procedures that fall under the umbrella term of cosmetic dentistry. Basically, any treatment that primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile fall under this heading. At our Luton practice, treatments include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Discreet braces
  • Smile makeovers
  • White fillings

Are the benefits purely aesthetic?

Whilst the primary focus of cosmetic dental treatment is on aesthetics, many of the treatments are also better for your dental health. For example, choosing cosmetic orthodontic treatments can also improve your oral health because straighter teeth are healthier teeth. The benefits to self-confidence shouldn’t be underestimated, either.

How long does treatment take?

This will depend on what type of treatment you need. Some procedures, such as veneers and teeth whitening, only take one or two appointments, whilst a full-mouth reconstruction or orthodontic treatment will take longer. Your dentist will advise you of how long your treatment should take at the planning stage.
