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.

How cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we are aware that a beautiful smile can have a seriously positive impact on your self-confidence and your personal and professional interactions. That’s why we are proud to offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments.

Cosmetic dentistry offers a huge range of treatments designed to boost your smile, meaning you will want to show it off at every opportunity.

Some patients who visit our Luton practice already know what treatment they want to boost their smile, whilst others know only that they are unhappy with how it looks but do not know what the best option is to change it.

Whichever category you fall into, your first step should be to book a cosmetic dentistry consultation with one of our experienced dentists here at our Luton clinic. Your dentist will find out what you like and dislike about your current smile, before carefully examining your teeth, gums and surrounding structures. They will then recommend all appropriate treatments to help you achieve your smile goals.

At Vogue Dental Care, Luton, our cosmetic dentistry menu is extensive, and in some cases you will benefit from combining two or more of the treatment options to get the smile of your dreams. Among the most popular treatments we offer are:

Teeth whitening

How Botox can take years off your appearance

Botox treatment is an excellent way to leave you looking and feeling years younger, without the need for invasive treatment. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, treatment with botulinum toxin is just one of the facial aesthetics treatments on offer from our fully-trained practitioners.

What is Botox?

botoxBotox is a gel made from a purified form of the botulinum type A toxin. It is used to combat the signs of ageing – unwanted lines and wrinkles that we often find appearing on our face as we get older. 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.

Another popular use of Botox is to combat excessive sweating, which can be socially embarrassing and even life-restricting for patients who experience it. If you are interested in learning more about how treatment with botulinum toxin can ease excessive perspiration, please book a consultation with one of our experienced practitioners at Vogue Dental Care Luton.

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.
