How Botox treatment can combat the signs of ageing

Your dentist might not be the first person you’d consider to provide Botox treatment. However, at Vogue Dental Care in Luton we believe that dental professionals (alongside other medically-trained individuals such as doctors) are the perfect candidates to deliver facial aesthetics therapies, thanks to their expert knowledge of facial structure and anatomy.

botox-treatmentThe dentists at our Luton practice are fully trained and qualified to provide treatment with Botox and dermal fillers, which can help to combat the signs of ageing. Facial aesthetics treatments delivered by a dentist will look entirely natural, so there is no need to fear the “frozen” look that can result from treatment by a less skilled practitioner.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin. It is delivered in a gel form and, when carried out by a properly qualified practitioner, is a quick, safe and easy way to lessen the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face.

At our Luton centre we also offer treatment with Botox to combat excess sweating, which can be a socially embarrassing and life-limiting condition for people who suffer from it.

For facial aesthetics treatment, botulinum toxin can be used to treat frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead, to lift the jowls and to treat pockets under the eyes.

Treatment is carried out here in our state-of-the-art Luton dental practice and should only take a few minutes. The Botox is carefully and painlessly injected into the small facial muscles that contract and cause lines and wrinkles. The botulinum blocks nerve impulses and forces the muscles to relax, smoothing out the skin and lessening the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Results will take a few days to appear in full and will look highly natural. Depending on the area treated, these results can last up to six months.

It’s never too late to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry was once only available to Hollywood stars and the super-rich. These days, however, things have changed, and patients from all walks of life are improving the appearance of their smile with cosmetic procedures at Luton dental practice Vogue Dental Care.

cosmetic dentistryMany treatments come under the umbrella term “cosmetic dentistry”. Cosmetic dental treatment is anything designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of a smile – from major cosmetic orthodontic makeovers to simple teeth whitening treatment, and everything in between.

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our dentists enjoy nothing more than boosting a patient’s confidence by improving the appearance of their smile. In some cases patients need just one treatment, while in other cases combining two or more treatments is the best way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, the first step is to come into our Luton practice for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist. They will carefully assess your smile and will listen to your concerns, wants and needs, before presenting the best treatment options to you.

These are just some of the cosmetic dentistry options available from Vogue Dental Care, Luton:

Dental implants

Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth – for good. They are small metal screws placed in the jaw bone, on to which new teeth in the form of crowns, bridges or dentures can then be attached.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a mainstay of cosmetic dentistry. It uses special whitening gel to gently remove everyday stains from teeth, and should only be carried out on a dentist’s prescription.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics isn’t just for kids! There are many discreet ways for adults to straighten their teeth, with minimal impact on their lifestyle, and fast results.

White fillings

White fillings can replace worn metal fillings for a more aesthetically-pleasing, natural restoration.

Botox from a dentist? It could be the best decision you make

Facial aesthetics treatments including Botox and dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular – but how do you know you can trust your practitioner to do a good job? As dentists the facial aesthetics team at Vogue Dental Care in Luton are able to use their advanced knowledge of facial structures and anatomy to deliver safe, predictable and reliable facial aesthetics treatments.

botox-treatmentThe dentist who provides your facial aesthetics is fully qualified in providing Botox and dermal fillers to help combat the common signs of ageing.

As we age, unwanted lines and wrinkles often develop on our face. Whereas surgery was once the only option to lessen these lines, now non-invasive facial aesthetics treatments such as Botox are increasingly popular. More and more patients are visiting our Luton practice for this treatment.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin, which is made into a gel and is commonly used to smooth out wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead, to lift the jowls and to treat saggy pockets under the eyes.

Another increasingly popular use of botulinum toxin is to prevent excessive sweating, which can be a source of major embarrassment for those who suffer from it. If you are interested in this treatment, please get in touch with our Luton practice for more information.

How treatment works

Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to tiny facial muscles, forcing them to relax and smoothing out the skin. It is delivered by pain-free injection and your appointment at Vogue Dental Practice should only take a few minutes. When performed by medically trained professionals such as a dentist or doctor, this treatment is entirely safe.

Treatment results will be clearly visible after a few days and will last for several months before a repeat treatment is required.

Combine cosmetic dentistry treatments to get the smile of your dreams

Many treatments fall under the heading of cosmetic dentistry. At Luton dental practice Vogue Dental Care, our skilled clinicians offer a wide selection of cosmetic treatments to suit all needs and all budgets. While some people will find one treatment is sufficient to suit their needs, others will find that a combination of two or more treatment options will help them to achieve the beautiful smile they have always dreamt of.

cosmetic dentistry treatmentsHere, we look at some popular cosmetic dentistry combinations. For a full list of treatment options, call into our Luton dental practice and talk to a member of our friendly team.

Orthodontics + teeth whitening

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening and realigning teeth. Many adults are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth, having missed out on orthodontic treatment as a youngster or having had treatment only to find their teeth have moved back to their old position.

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we offer a number of discreet orthodontic options, including Six Month Smiles and the Inman Aligner, for adults who want to straighten their teeth. Your dentist will recommend the best options to suit your individual needs at your cosmetic dentistry consultation.

After orthodontic treatment is complete, many patients like to give their smile an extra boost with teeth whitening – either here at the practice with one of our dentists, or at home using custom-made whitening trays.

Crowns + white fillings

If you have a lot of metal fillings you may be self-conscious about your smile. At our Luton dental practice our clinicians can replace your metal fillings with white composite fillings.

Worn teeth or teeth that have been weakened by very large fillings or root canal treatment will benefit from treatment with crowns. A crown is a tooth-coloured cap attached to the top of your teeth for added strength and improved appearance.

How cosmetic dentistry can add sparkle to your smile

Cosmetic dentistry is a rapidly growing industry, with more and more people choosing to improve the aesthetic appearance of their smile, and with it boost their self-confidence. At Vogue Dental Care our skilled cosmetic dentists provide a range of aesthetic treatments to patients from Luton and beyond.

cosmetic dentistryIf you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, we invite you to visit our Luton dental practice for a cosmetic consultation. Our skilled practitioners will listen to your concerns about your smile and will carefully examine your teeth and gums, before recommended the best course of treatment.

Here are some of the most popular aesthetic procedures at our Luton clinic:

Teeth whitening

When carried out by a qualified dentist, teeth whitening is a quick and safe way to add some sparkle to your smile. It involves the use of whitening gel to gently remove everyday stains from your teeth and is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry.

At Vogue Dental Practice we offer several teeth whitening options, some carried out by your dentist here in the practice and some that you perform yourself at home with the aid of custom-made whitening trays.

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a popular option for patients in need of a smile makeover. They are thin pieces of porcelain attached to the front of your teeth with special dental adhesive. A single veneer can be used to disguise a permanently stained or discoloured tooth, while a full set can mask small gaps, slightly misaligned, cracked or chipped teeth.

White fillings

We can replace old metal amalgam fillings with “white” fillings made from tooth-coloured composite material. These blend in perfectly to look completely natural.

How Botox treatment can take years off your appearance

For people plagued by unwanted lines and wrinkles on their face, Botox could be the perfect solution. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, this is just one of the facial rejuvenation treatments we offer to help combat the signs of ageing.

Ask your dentist about Botox treatment

botox treatmentHere at our Luton dental practice, we know that feeling good about your appearance means more than just having a beautiful smile. Unwanted lines and wrinkles such as frown lines, smoker’s lines and crow’s feet can make you feel self-conscious as they can make you look much older than you feel.

Once upon a time the only option was plastic surgery, but now there are several non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures that can combat the premature signs of ageing and restore a more youthful appearance to your skin. Botox is among the most popular of these treatments.

The key to producing a natural-looking result is to carefully deliver a precise amount of botulinum toxin A (what Botox is made of) to the correct areas of the face. It works by blocking nerve impulses and forcing the tiny facial muscles to relax, thus smoothing out the skin.

Dentists are very knowledgeable about facial anatomy, which means they are well qualified to deliver facial rejuvenation treatments in a safe and controlled manner. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton our practitioners are highly experienced and fully trained in treatment with Botox and dermal fillers.

What is Botox used to treat?

The common areas of treatment include:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Furrows between the eyebrows
  • Blepharospasm (uncontrollable twitching of the eyes)

Botox is also useful for patients who suffer from excess sweating. To find out how our facial rejuvenation treatments can help you, please contact a member of our Luton-based team today.

Achieve the smile of your dreams with cosmetic dentistry

Once upon a time, cosmetic dentistry was the preserve of the rich and famous. Thanks to advances in techniques and materials, aesthetic dentistry is now available more widely. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our skilled team can help you to achieve the smile of your dreams.

cosmetic dentistryMany patients considering cosmetic dentistry know they want to improve their smile, but are unsure which treatments would be best for them.

Veneers

Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment that can disguise a multitude of sins. If your teeth are permanently stained (that is, stains cannot be removed by teeth whitening) or discoloured, have mild gaps or are slightly crooked, porcelain veneers may be the answer.

They are thin pieces of porcelain applied to the front of the teeth to hide discolouration, gaps, minor alignment issues and even to cover small cracks. Veneers are one of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry, and are attached to the teeth with strong dental adhesive. The results are beautiful and natural.

Teeth whitening

This is probably the most common procedure in cosmetic dentistry. It involves the use of whitening gel to safely remove stains from your teeth. This is safe when carried out by a dentist.

You can opt to have a single dose of treatment here in our Luton dental practice, can choose to have home teeth whitening treatment, or can have a combination of both home and in-practice whitening – the choice is yours.

Why your dentist could be the best person to perform Botox treatment

Botox is an increasingly popular way of rejuvenating your skin, giving your back the youthful looks that the stresses and strains of everyday life can take away. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we provide a wide range of facial rejuvenation treatments, because we believe in treating the whole patient, not just their teeth.

What is Botox, and what is it used for?

botox treatmentBotox is a purified form of botulinum toxin A that has proved highly effective in rejuvenating the skin of the face, halting the signs of ageing by smoothing out unwanted lines and wrinkle. It is commonly used to get rid of wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead, as well as lifting jowls and treating pockets beneath the eyes.

Another popular use of Botox is to prevent excessive sweating, which can be a serious cause of embarrassment for those who suffer from it. If this applies to you, don’t despair – contact our Luton clinic to see how we can help.

Facial rejuvenation from a dentist?

We appreciate that not everyone would expect to find Botox and other facial rejuvenation treatments provided by a dentist. However, there are good reasons to have treatment here. As with any cosmetic procedure, it should only be performed by properly medically trained professionals – dentists or doctors.

As dentists, we have an excellent knowledge of facial anatomy, meaning we can deliver treatment safely and painlessly at our Luton clinic. This is a walk-in treatment that only takes a few minutes.

How does it work?

Botulinum toxin works by forcing the muscles of the face to relax through blocking nerve impulses. This smooths out lines and wrinkles and pockets of fat.

Treatment is non-invasive and takes just a few minutes. The results will be subtle but noticeable, and will become apparent over the course of a few days. They will usually last about four months.
