If you have started to worry about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face, you may have tried several ways to improve the situation. You may have started drinking lots of water, using moisturisers and face masks and even trying facial yoga (yes, this really exists!). However, the results may not have been as impressive as you’d hoped. You may be surprised then to learn that, at Byfleet Dental Boutique, our dentist in West Byfleet can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with facial rejuvenation treatments.

Don’t be alarmed, though; we haven’t gone ‘cray-cray’ over here! Our dentists are professionals in facial anatomy, and they can treat your face effectively, using their expertise to deliver delicate procedures to the tiny facial muscles with needles.


How we can help


At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we have a couple of treatments that we use to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We have an anti-wrinkle treatment as well as dermal fillers. Our dentist in West Byfleet, here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, can discuss which treatment may be suitable for you.


Anti-wrinkle treatment


Our anti-wrinkle treatment involves softening the wrinkles on your face using a non-surgical procedure. By using botulinum toxin type A as an injectable solution, we inject the wrinkles to relax the muscles, blocking the nerve impulses and softening the lines that are causing you concern.


The treatment takes just 5 to 10 minutes, and you should be able to see an improvement in your appearance in as little as 4 to 7 days. Nevertheless, this treatment is not a permanent solution, so we advise that you have further treatments every 3 months to maintain the results.


The areas that we can treat are the forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and smoker’s lines. It may not sound too glamorous, but you may well look it once you’ve had your treatment and treated yourself!


Dermal fillers


Another option available is dermal fillers, consisting of hyaluronic acid gels that are not derived from animals. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the body and gives the skin its elasticity and youthful appearance. Over time, your body starts to produce less of this natural substance and this is where the injections can help. By injecting dermal fillers into the areas where your wrinkles are, we can plump up your skin. These fillers can also be used to give your lips a more enhanced pout.


The great thing about fillers is that they can last between 6 and 12 months before you need to have further treatment, and, like our other anti-wrinkle treatments, they don’t involve surgery and may be only mildly discomforting.

If you have missing teeth, chances are you’re not overjoyed by this. Whether you’ve lost your teeth through poor oral hygiene, an accident or an illness, the aesthetic result is often not too pleasing. Patients with missing teeth who have tried traditional methods of tooth replacement may have been dissatisfied with the result. Thankfully, there is a more effective way of filling in the hole in one go and not having to shoot another round (golf puns intended!). At Byfleet Dental Boutique, our dentist in West Byfleet can offer an effective and natural-looking treatment that you can rely on with dental implants.

What are dental implants?


Dental implants are titanium screws that can be attached to your jawbone and act as roots for your replacement teeth. The prosthetics can be attached to the implants using an abutment, and they can be either crowns, dentures or bridges, depending on how many teeth need replacing. The screws fuse with your jawbone, so once the replacement teeth are attached, you can rest assured that they won’t be going anywhere. The result is a natural-looking smile that functions like natural teeth as well. Our dentist in West Byfleet, here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, is highly experienced and skilled in performing this procedure, which can be done using local anaesthesia.


What are the advantages of dental implants?


Ask any dentist in West Byfleet and they will tell you that one of the biggest advantages that patients enjoy about dental implants is the fact that they can rely on their smile not to let them down. There won’t be any clacking teeth while you talk, and you can continue to eat and drink whatever you want. If you fancy that steak well-done, then go for it! Furthermore, you can easily maintain your implants by simply brushing and flossing as normal, whilst also not forgetting to see us for your routine dental checkups. It couldn’t be easier to take care of them!


Another tick in the plus points is the fact that other people won’t realise that you have dental implants. Your replacement teeth will be made to match any remaining natural teeth that you may have in terms of size, shape and colour. Also, if you have experienced a shrunken face as a result of missing teeth, then you could look younger with your implants as they can give your face the structure that it was lacking. By filling in the gaps, you can also protect your gums and any remaining natural teeth from over-exposure to bacteria. Basically, dental implants rock!

If you have misaligned teeth and don’t know what to do about it, then visiting our dentist in West Byfleet at Byfleet Dental Boutique is your answer! Having misaligned teeth can be a cause of anxiety and low self-esteem for many people. Whether it is hiding from your friends and their obsession with selfies or avoiding looking at yourself in the mirror, the fact is that you shouldn’t have to feel down about your smile. With Invisalign, you can get treatment to realign your smile if you have mild to moderate alignment issues. At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we have a team of professionals ready to help you get the grin you deserve!

What is Invisalign?


Invisalign is a system that uses clear plastic aligners, which are worn over the teeth and apply small amounts of pressure to the teeth to move them into position over time. Treatment can take as little as 6 to 18 months. The aligners can be tailored to fit your mouth, using iTero technology; this involves a 3D scan of your mouth from which the measurements can be taken. Therefore, they are comfortable to wear. Our dentist in West Byfleet at Byfleet Dental Boutique will provide you with sets of aligners to change between every week for 6 weeks before seeing you for a checkup and providing you with your next batch of aligners. It couldn’t be more simple!


The benefits of Invisalign


The beauty of Invisalign is that the aligners are fabricated from clear plastic and, because of this, they are barely noticeable when worn. This should give you the confidence to get your teeth aligned because you won’t have to worry about the way your smile looks during the treatment. Moreover, there is certainly a lower risk of the aligners breaking – plastic is pretty resilient!


Another benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners may be removed for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you won’t need to have them in your mouth whilst eating, and thus, you won’t have a restricted diet. Chomp away on your favourite nosh without the worry that anything is going to be damaged or having to clean up your aligners afterwards. You can also remove the aligners whilst playing sports, going on a date or just chilling on the sofa with a facemask on – the choice is all yours; we won’t tell you what to do!


If you think you may need some motivation to keep wearing your aligners, we have the technology to show you an animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment, before you even get started with it! When we use that clever iTero scanner, we can generate the images you will definitely want to see to get you dreaming of your future smile!
