The appearance of your teeth is a big part of your overall image. When your smile is spoiled by chipped or discoloured teeth, or if you have gaps where teeth are missing, you can start to feel bad about the way you look. Luckily, these problems are easily solved nowadays, with a visit to a cosmetic dentist in Kingston.
There are many different ways to improve the appearance of your teeth, from simple one-stop solutions to more intricate work requiring several visits to the dental practice. At the Kingston Dental Clinic, you’ll find a Kingston cosmetic dentist who uses contemporary technology to provide significant cosmetic improvements.
A frequent reason people request cosmetic treatment from us is because their teeth have become discoloured. Over the years, food and drink can leave behind traces on the surfaces of the teeth that build up into unsightly stains. These stains come in a surprisingly variety of colours. Our teeth whitening treatments apply a bright shade of whiteness to the outer layer of your teeth. It’s a simple procedure that can be carried out in the comfort of your own home.
As a cosmetic dentist in Kingston, we see a lot of adults with chipped teeth. Applying veneers – thin segments of porcelain securely bonded to the teeth – gives these teeth a quality, professional appearance.
A crooked smile can look unappealing. It can also contribute to poor oral hygiene by providing hard-to-clean spaces in which food particles and bacteria can hide. Our tooth realignment treatments will give you a more attractive smile and a healthier mouth. The dental appliances we use to achieve these great results are contemporary, customised, and relatively speedy. A little bit of time brings a long-lasting improvement.
If you have a combination of things you’d like to change about your appearance and don’t quite know where to begin, we can work with you to plan a smile makeover. By using a variety of treatments, we can greatly enhance your appearance. We take the time to get to know you, so that your experience of visiting a cosmetic dentist in Kingston is considerate and efficient.
The fine lines and wrinkles in the skin of your face can cause you to look much older than you really are. Factors such as diet, lifestyle, and overexposure to the sun can contribute to a prematurely aged appearance. Plus, as time goes on, the skin has more difficulty in rejuvenating itself. At the Kingston Dental Clinic, we have a convenient treatment for this undesirable condition. Botox in Kingston is a non-surgical treatment, in which a carefully-controlled injection of a specially-formulated substance reduces the wrinkles associated with ageing. It’s a quick and effective process that can change the way you feel about your appearance.
How Botox in Kingston works
Our dental aesthetics team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in delivering Botox in Kingston. The active ingredient – botulinum toxin – is injected into the skin. Once it’s in, it blocks the nerve impulses in the muscles associated with the wrinkles created by facial expressions. The muscles relax, smoothing out the wrinkles and leaving the skin looking more youthful.
Where it’s applied
There are several common signs of ageing that can be improved by Botox in Kingston:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Frown lines on the forehead or between the eyes
- Lines around the mouth and top lip sometimes known as smoker’s lines.
The injections are delivered in the comfortable surroundings of our contemporary dental practice. They are a speedy treatment, only needing around 10 minutes at the most to be completed. Afterwards, you’ll notice the results within a few days of your injection.
In Kingston, Botox is one of the most popular ways to improve the signs of ageing. As well as leaving you looking younger, you’ll retain normal skin sensitivity, and still have the ability to make the usual facial expressions. The injection only acts on very specific, isolated muscles. It does not produce a permanent transformation. Eventually, after several months, the affected muscles will begin to regain their strength as the Botox wears off. Some patients repeat the treatment a couple of times a year. Others prefer to use it just before important social occasions or business meetings.
We spend so much money every year on things to make us look good. New clothes, new shoes, new hair, new nails, new faces even. But what about a new mouth? One that you can’t wait to show off by smiling and laughing a lot, and one that isn’t ever going to go out of fashion? That’s quite an investment and one that’s worth the trouble, as you’ll find out when you choose to visit the cosmetic dentist in Kingston.
At Kingston Dental Clinic, we have often seen the positive beneficial effects of spending time having treatment at the cosmetic dentist in Kingston. Yes, this is dentistry you choose to have in order to improve the way your teeth and gums look, but the result is often a massive boost in confidence and spontaneity for the patient.
If you have spent your life trying not to smile too much because you hate the way your teeth look, then you are in for a huge surprise. Once you no longer need to keep your lips pressed together when you smile, or cover your mouth with your hand, you will find a new freedom of expression. It might take a while to get used to not having to cover up your grin. You may find that you are far more noticeable than you used to be because you no longer need to hide yourself. Perhaps you’ll be stepping onto the bus and giving the driver a big smile, and because of your cheery attitude, you’ll notice that everyone on the bus is staring at you. Yes, even in London, where no one ever makes eye contact with anyone.
You’ll find people are smiling back at you. That person on the tube, at the checkout, gorgeous people in bars, all of them are hardwired to smile back and warm to your lovely, friendly smile. This is because our smile is our most important tool of non-verbal communication, and it’s how we let people know we are a friend. If you have never experienced people’s reactions to a great smile, it might seem rather overwhelming at first, but persevere. You’ll never regret the time and money you spent with the cosmetic dentist in Kingston.
Botox injections have made a huge impact in the facial aesthetics field and are a fast-growing cosmetic treatment option here at Kingston Dental Clinic. The amount spent on Botox even exceeds that spent on breast implants or liposuction.
The thought of Botox in Kingston is foreign to many of our patient’s dental mindsets, simply because we have never been involved in these areas before. It also wasn’t long ago when dental implants were foreign to dentistry, with many dentists saying they would not get involved because it could change the mindset of trying to save teeth. When teeth whitening was first introduced into the dental market, many dentists called it malpractice. Times have changed and evolved and now these procedures are common practice in many dental clinics around the world.
What actually is Botox in Kingston?
Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin, which comes in the form of a purified protein. Botox in Kingston is injected into the facial muscles but surprisingly doesn’t affect the muscle at all. Botulinum toxin affects and blocks the transmitters between the motor nerves that move the muscle. There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract. When that muscle does not contract, the skin then starts to smooth out, and in three to 10 days after treatment, the skin above those muscles becomes nice and smooth. The effects of Botox in Kingston will last for three to four months, at which time our patients may need retreatment to keep the same level of effectiveness.
Where can it be used?
The areas that Botox is commonly used for smoothing of facial wrinkles are: the forehead, between the eyes, around the corners of the eyes (known as crow’s feet) and around the lips. Botox in Kingston is also used to complement aesthetic dentistry cases, as a minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip line cases and also can be used on our denture patients who have trouble adjusting to their new dentures.

If you want to present the world with your best smile, it is very important to look after your teeth properly. We all know we should avoid certain bad habits such as smoking or eating too many sugary foods. Regular brushing and flossing will also greatly help to prevent oral health problems, but sometimes that just isn’t enough to achieve your dream smile. Visiting our cosmetic dentist in Kingston at Kingston Dental Clinic can help give your smile a boost.
We offer an array of cosmetic dentistry procedures to make over your smile and make you ready for any unexpected photo opportunity. Perhaps you have never considered visiting a cosmetic dentist in Kingston before, but read on and see if you might consider us.
Discolouration of your teeth can be caused by a lot of everyday habits and many of our patients have problems with staining and yellowing.
For truly effective and long-lasting whitening results, we will always recommend using professional whitening treatments that must be provided under the supervision of a dentist here at Kingston Dental Clinic. Our treatments contain a whitening solution at a concentration that is not available in over-the-counter products and which can be prescribed by a cosmetic dentist in Kingston.
This form of cosmetic dentistry will ensure that you get a shade of white that looks natural and healthy to match the new healthy and happier you.
If you have missing teeth or perhaps no teeth at all, we offer a reliable and trustworthy solution – dental implants. These are tiny screws implanted directly into your jawbone, which create a very strong artificial root, onto which we can place replacement teeth or bridges. The results can last a lifetime. Imagine no more problems with speaking or eating and the ability to reverse the sunken look that missing teeth can give to your face.
