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.

Botox treatment from a dentist?

Botox and other facial aesthetics treatments are becoming an increasingly popular way to combat the signs of ageing without the need for surgery. At Luton’s Vogue Dental Care, our skilled practitioners offer a wide selection of facial aesthetics treatments designed to get rid of unwanted lines and wrinkles.

How Botox treatment can make you look – and feel – years younger

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we know that feeling good about yourself means more than having a beautiful smile.

These rejuvenating treatments can take years off you and, when delivered by dentists with expert knowledge of facial structure and anatomy, result in an entirely natural looking result.

botoxBotox is a purified form of the botulinum type A toxin that is used to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles that appear on our face as we get older. It can also be used on the hands, and to treat people who suffer from excessive sweating – a major cause of social embarrassment for those afflicted by it.

Here at our Luton dental practice, we specialise in providing the highest quality of care whatever treatment you require. We use the latest techniques and cutting-edge equipment and material to produce excellent results every time.

As we age, we often find that lines and wrinkles start to appear on our face. Botox can be used to treat many areas and is most commonly used to counteract wrinkles on the forehead, around the mouth and around the eyebrows.

Botox treatment is also effective at lifting the jowls and treating under-eye pockets. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure carried out here in the comfort of our modern Luton practice. The effects take a few days to fully develop and are usually visible after four to five days. While they are not permanent, results can last up to six months before an additional course of treatment is required.

Botox is just one of the facial aesthetics treatments available at our Luton dental practice. Our fully-qualified, professional team can also use dermal fillers to smooth out wrinkles, improve facial contours and give you fuller lips.

Cosmetic dentistry: so many ways to improve your smile

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetic appearance of your smile. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our skilled cosmetic dental team offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments designed to boost your smile. If, like many people, you are unhappy with any aspect of your smile’s appearance, why not book a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists?

cosmetic dentistryMany treatments fall under the umbrella term “cosmetic dentistry”. Some people know exactly which treatment they want, while others are unhappy about how their smile looks but are unsure what they need to do to improve it. Sometimes one treatment will be all that’s required, while in other cases combining treatments is the best option. Here are some of the most popular cosmetic options at our Luton dental practice. . .

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the most common treatment in cosmetic dentistry. It involves using special bleaching products to remove stains from your teeth and make them brighter. We offer home teeth whitening using custom-made trays, and in-chair whitening here at our Luton dental practice. Treatment can take as little as one hour.

Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain placed over the front surfaces of the teeth to disguise minor imperfections. This is a minimally invasive treatment and is an excellent way to have a smile makeover.

Discreet orthodontics

For adults who want straighter teeth, we offer a wide range of options at our Luton practice. Fast-acting braces comprised of tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, and clear, removable aligners that fit snuggly over your teeth mean that you can have the orthodontic treatment – and the straighter smile – you always wanted, without the need to wear obvious metal braces.

White fillings

White or tooth-coloured fillings can replace metal fillings for a more natural look. For larger cavities, we also offer tooth-coloured onlays and inlays.

Combining treatments in cosmetic dentistry to get the smile of your dreams

Cosmetic dentistry is a rapidly growing area. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our experienced team of cosmetic dentists offer a wide selection of treatments designed to give patients the smile of their dreams. While in some cases one treatment will be all that is required, in many cases combining two or more treatment options is the perfect way to boost your smile.

cosmetic-dentistryWhen you look great, you feel great. Cosmetic dentistry is designed to give you confidence in your smile, and with it raise your self-esteem. This can have a massively positive impact on both your personal and professional life.

At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, our experienced cosmetic dentistry practitioners know that to look beautiful a smile has to look natural. We use the latest techniques and materials to create realistic restorations and to improve the appearance of a smile without it looking over-done or fake.

Here are some of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures at our Luton practice:

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry. It involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to gently and safely remove the everyday stains that can build up on our teeth thanks to tea, coffee and habits such as smoking.

As well as being an excellent standalone treatment, boosting your smile quickly, teeth whitening is the ideal way to complement other cosmetic procedures such as teeth straightening.

Veneers

Veneers are another popular treatment at our Luton practice. These thin shells of porcelain are placed over the front surfaces of the front teeth to improve their appearance. They are held in place with strong dental adhesive and look very natural and beautiful.

Cosmetic orthodontics

Straighter teeth are healthier and more attractive. Cosmetic orthodontics involves the use of discreet braces or aligners to quickly improve the alignment of your teeth.

How Botox treatment can beat the signs of ageing

Botox treatment is an increasingly popular way to defy the premature signs of ageing. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we know that feeling good about your appearance means more than having a gorgeous smile. That’s why we offer a wide range of facial aesthetics treatments alongside our cosmetic dental options.

What can Botox do?

botoxMany people find that as they get older, unwanted lines and wrinkles start to appear on their face. There are several causes of these premature signs of ageing, from spending too much time in the sun without UV protection to dietary factors including drinking too much alcohol and not drinking enough water. Habits such as smoking also have a detrimental effect on the skin, restricting blood flow and causing “smoker’s lines” around the mouth.

Facial aesthetics treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers have been specially designed to combat these lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery.

Botox is a non-invasive treatment that is most popularly used on the forehead to combat frown lines and wrinkles, to treat pockets under the eyes and to lift the jowls. It can also be used to treat patients who suffer from excess sweating.

It works by forcing the tiny muscles in the face to relax, smoothing out any wrinkles or lines. It is not a permanent treatment but, depending on which areas you have treated, the effects can last up to six months before a repeat course of treatment is required.

Cosmetic dental practices are adding Botox and dermal filler options to their treatment menus thanks to increased patient demand. At our Luton dental practice, our dentists use their expert knowledge of facial anatomy to deliver just the right amount of treatment for a natural look.

How Botox treatment can combat the signs of ageing

Your dentist might not be the first person you’d consider to provide Botox treatment.

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.

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.
