Cosmetic dentistry can have health benefits: why you should consider teeth straightening

While cosmetic dentistry primarily deals with the aesthetic appearance of a smile, at Luton dental practice Vogue we are always keen to stress the health benefits of many cosmetic treatments. Options such as cosmetic crowns have an obvious positive impact on oral and general health; restoring and strengthening a worn tooth ensures you can still eat a healthy diet, with biting and chewing forces evenly distributed between the teeth. But did you know that cosmetic braces have health benefits too?

cosmetic-dentistryStraighter teeth are one of the most common requests in cosmetic dentistry. While children and teenagers now standardly have orthodontic treatment, the adult orthodontic market is also expanding rapidly. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we understand that whilst many adults want to straighten their teeth, the thought of wearing obvious metal braces can be off-putting to say the least. That’s why we are proud to offer a number of more discreet options.

If you are interested in discreet teeth straightening treatments, we invite you to join us at our Luton practice for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Your dentist will examine your teeth and your bite (the way that your jaws meet together) before talking you through the pros and cons of all relevant treatments.

We offer treatment with both tooth-coloured cosmetic braces and clear aligners at our Luton practice. The best option for you will depend on the type and amount of correction required, as well as on your personal preference.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic, tooth-coloured braces that move your teeth gently and quickly. They work so fast because they focus on those teeth that show when you smile.

Inman Aligner

This single-use clear aligner is good for treating adult relapse, crooked or crowded front teeth. It is designed to work rapidly and is sometimes used as a precursor to other cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Let cosmetic dentistry unlock the beauty within

Cosmetic dentistry is the perfect way to boost the appearance of your smile, and is no longer reserved for Hollywood stars and the super-rich. At Luton dental practice Vogue, our skilled cosmetic team offer a wide selection of treatments large and small, so if you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, come and see us for a consultation to see how we can help you.

What can cosmetic dentistry do for me?

cosmetic dentistryThe question of what cosmetic dentistry can do for you is something we frequently hear at our Luton dental clinic. The simple answer is: whatever you want. Whether you simply want to boost your smile quickly and effectively before a special occasion, or you need extensive work to restore your smile’s beautiful appearance, a cosmetic dentist will be able to help.

Our smiles are the first thing many people notice about us, and most people want to be able to laugh and smile in confidence in public to let their true personality shine through. However, many people are also unhappy with some aspect of their smile – thinking their teeth are too crooked or discoloured – which is where cosmetic dentistry comes in.

At Vogue in Luton, we believe in providing treatments that last – as well as looking entirely natural. When you come in for your cosmetic dentistry consultation, your clinician will undertake a detailed examination of your teeth and gums, and will listen to your individual concerns and desires for what you want treatment to achieve. They will then run through the pros and cons of all appropriate treatments to achieve this, so you will be fully-involved in the decision-making process at all times.

From teeth whitening to cosmetic orthodontics or full-mouth restorations using dental implants, bridges or cosmetic dentures, we are confident that we will create the perfect smile for you.

Botox: the perfect complement to cosmetic dental treatment

Botox and facial aesthetics treatments are the perfect way to complement cosmetic dental procedures. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our skilled team have undertaken additional training to be fully qualified in delivering facial aesthetics procedures, including botulinum toxin and dermal fillers.

What Botox can do

botoxUnwanted lines and wrinkles are the plague of many people’s lives as they get older. Our facial muscles are contracting all the time as we smile, frown and laugh, and as we start to age those contractions begin to leave their mark in the form of permanent lines and wrinkles on the face.

Treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox are designed to combat these lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers replace lost hyaluronic acid from the skin, whilst botulinum toxin smooths out lines and wrinkles by forcing the tiny facial muscles to relax.

The Botox treatment available at our Luton clinic is delivered in a precise and controlled manner to target problem areas and produce a completely natural-looking result. Although you may not think of a dentist as the first person to call when you need facial aesthetics treatment, in fact medical professionals such as doctors, dentists or nurses are excellent candidates to provide these therapies because their intimate knowledge of facial anatomy means that the results will appear completely natural and beautiful.

All those who provide Botox at our Luton clinic are fully trained in delivering such treatments, and we have many happy clients who will testify to their results.

Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers can also be the perfect complement to cosmetic dental treatment. If you have invested the time and money in a beautiful smile, what better way to round it off than with a non-invasive, fast-acting facial treatment that will leave you looking and feeling years younger?

Cosmetic dentistry offers fast, effective ways to make over your smile

Cosmetic dentistry is the area of the profession that deals with the aesthetic appearance of a smile. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we have a skilled team of cosmetic dentists who have helped countless patients achieve the smile they have long dreamt of with a range of cosmetic treatments.

cosmetic-dentistry-vogueEvery patient who comes into our Luton clinic for a cosmetic dentistry consultation is different, with a unique set of needs and desires. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all treatment in the cosmetic dental world, so your dentist will listen to your personal wants and needs as well as conducting a detailed clinical examination.

While some patients require extensive restorative work and major correction, in many cases the cosmetic dentists at our Luton practice are able to create your dream smile in a far quicker time than you might have expected. There’s no such thing as a quick-fix solution in cosmetic dentistry either, because we pride ourselves on creating smiles that look beautiful and that last, but there are many tried and tested, fast and effective ways your practitioner can provide a smile makeover.

Here are some of the fastest cosmetic treatments at our Luton dental clinic:

Teeth whitening

One of the most popular treatments on the cosmetic dentistry menu, teeth whitening uses special bleaching gel to carefully remove everyday stains from your teeth. When carried out by a dental professional, this is a fast, safe, and predictable treatment.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that correct minor alignment issues with the front teeth – those that are on display when you smile. They are made of tooth-coloured and clear components, for improved discretion.

Porcelain veneers

These micro-thin porcelain shells are attached to the front surfaces of the front teeth and require minimum preparation. They create a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Cosmetic dentistry explored: subtle ways to straighten your teeth

Thanks to major advances in cosmetic dentistry in recent years, there are now a number of discreet ways for your dentist to straighten your teeth. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our skilled cosmetic team understand that – particularly for adult patients – the thought of wearing traditional metal braces for 24 months or more can be enough to put you off orthodontic treatment. However, we also believe that you deserve the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted.

cosmetic-dentistry-vogueMany adults are put off by the word “orthodontics”, picturing the metal train-track braces worn by their peers at school. While these remain popular with teenagers and are one of the best ways to straighten teeth, they are not compatible with an adult’s busy social and professional life. Thankfully, cosmetic dentistry offers some far subtler options.

Discreet braces in Luton

At our Luton dental practice, our cosmetic dentistry team offer teeth-straightening treatment with braces or aligners. The best option for your needs will be discussed at your initial consultation, following a detailed examination by your dentist.

Here are some of the discreet orthodontic treatments available from the cosmetic dentistry team at Vogue in Luton:

Six Month Smiles

These tooth-coloured cosmetic braces have an average treatment time of just six months, and focus on the front teeth – those on show when you smile. They are more comfortable than traditional braces.

Inman Aligner

A fast and effective way to correct problems with the front teeth, the Inman Aligner is both clear and removable. Less conspicuous than braces, the Inman Aligner can work in as little as six weeks.

Invisalign

This series of clear aligners fit over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position. Your dentist will let you know how many aligners you will need at your initial consultation. You need to change your aligner every fortnight.

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: 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.

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.

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.
