An increasing amount of dental practices across the UK are offering facial aesthetics treatment alongside cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry. Smile aesthetics are no longer simply associated with your teeth and dentists are medical professionals with a comprehensive knowledge of skin and smile anatomy with the expertise to help you decide on the type of treatment that best suits you.
The role of Botox & dermal fillers
Botox and dermal fillers are non-surgical alternatives to cosmetic surgery, treating wrinkles and lines and adding volume to targeted areas of the face. These type of treatments can be performed in as little as 30 minutes which is one of the reasons it’s easier than ever to reduce signs of ageing and boost your confidence at a dental practice and in very little time. There is no recovery time associated with either treatment and you can resume your daily activities immediately afterwards.
These treatments can be performed alongside cosmetic dental procedures such as tooth whitening, veneers, crowning and orthodontic treatment, to create the perfect harmony between your smile and your overall facial aesthetic. Having this type of treatment performed in conjunction with cosmetic dental procedures is known as a ‘Smile makeover’ though this term also refers to having more than 1 cosmetic dental procedure at one time. Some popular combinations include:
– – Dermal fillers and teeth whitening
– – Botox with teeth whitening
– – Veneers with teeth whitening
– – Veneers with orthodontic treatment
Having cosmetic dental treatment and indeed non-surgical facial aesthetics treatment can be life-changing for many people. Here at St Peter’s Lodge we understand how much treatment means to our patients and the most rewarding result is the improved emotional wellbeing and confidence we see in patients. The subtle results produced by Botox and dermal fillers restores a younger version of you, accentuating your natural features rather than yielding a look that wasn’t part of your facial make up, which is often the case with cosmetic surgery. Feeling great in your skin starts from the inside and many people around the world are embracing non-surgical methods, in fact, Botox and dermal fillers make up 90% of the non-surgical market.
