As previously mentioned, dentists are perfectly placed to carry out facial aesthetics due to their dental training background and Dr Alix Mathewson has completed further training to specialise in providing Botox, Thread lifting, Dermal Fillers and Derma Roller.
- Botox is widely used to treat lines on the face, such as frown lines, and smile lines. It can also be used to correct a gummy smile and can also control excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis.
- Thread lifting is a procedure that gently alleviates sagging in the face, such as in the brows, cheeks, or jowls.
- Dermal fillers are used to soften facial lines. They can be used to make lips appear fuller. They can change the contour of the face with non-surgical rhinoplasty and chin augmentation.
- Derma roller is used to reduce acne scarring, it can help improve skin pigmentation and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
The colour of a person’s teeth is genetic, just like hair and eye colour. However, teeth do tend to naturally get darker with age. This could be as a result of drinking tea and coffee or red wine, smoking, and from certain medications, which can all cause staining to occur. Teeth whitening is a great treatment to knock years off a person’s appearance. It requires no needles or tooth preparation and is a relatively cheap way of transforming your smile.
If you would like to get teeth whitening in Gloucester then the process is simple. Impressions are taken of your teeth and sent to the dental lab. Flexible, clear tailor-made trays are then made using dental impressions. The trays will fit perfectly to your teeth. This is important as it provides more even whitening coverage, plus the gel will not get on your gums which can cause tooth sensitivity in some patients.
Once the personalised trays are ready, in around 2 weeks, your dentist will ensure they fit correctly and will show you how much gel to put in the trays. They then need to be worn at home for approximately 2 weeks for the daily length of time recommended by your dentist.
You will then visit the dentist for a review appointment to check the progress of the teeth whitening and see whether you are happy with the whiteness of your smile.
