Refresh your skin with aesthetic treatments in Harley Street

The skin of the face is very delicate. Having said that, it is exposed daily to different factors that can hasten the ageing process. If we don’t look after our skin, these factors can cause changes and damages in appearance that are cosmetically unattractive.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we understand that pollution, sun exposure, smoking, poor nutrition and negligence, can cause discolouration, fine lines and wrinkles in the long-run. Furthermore, as you age, your skin loses its original elasticity and clarity.

Facial Aesthetics in W1For all these reasons, we offer a number of aesthetic procedures in our dental clinic in W1 to rejuvenate your face and increase your confidence. Dr Elisa Facco will guide you through the different treatments and help you decide which one is best for you and individual needs.

Chemical peeling

A chemical peel is a skin treatment during which a chemical substance is applied directly to the skin to remove the top layers of the skin. Chemical peeling stimulates exfoliation of damaged skin and cell regeneration. Your new skin will be smooth, younger looking and visibly supple.

PRX-T33

In our dental clinic in W1, we offer an innovative way to rejuvenate your skin without scarring. PRX-T33 is a minimally invasive surface peeling which promotes a very light surface exfoliation, illuminating the skin and stimulating the face cells. Unlike chemical peeling, which cannot be performed during the summer, PRX-T33 is minimally invasive, is ideal for all skin types and can be performed throughout the year.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers offer an affordable and non-invasive way to help reverse the changes associated with ageing. Unlike surgical face lifts, dermal fillers plump out the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, offering elasticity and a more natural appearance. Dermal fillers are made of high-quality synthetic collagen or hyaluronic acids (both of which are found naturally in the skin) and can be used to reduce or eradicate wrinkles, soften scars, enhance lips and replace soft-tissue volume loss.

Implant-supported dentures in Harley Street

For patients who have experienced extensive tooth loss, our experienced dentists at Harley Street Dental Clinic will commonly recommend implant-supported dentures over removable dentures because of their improved comfort and stability.

Dental implants are small titanium posts, surgically fixed into the jawbone to provide support for replacement teeth such as individual crowns, overdentures or bridges. At Harley Street, dental implants are our preferred method for replacing missing teeth because they provide support and have the ability to fuse with the jawbone, preventing its deterioration. While traditional dentures may be a more economical option for some patients, implant-supported dentures combine the best elements of both treatments at affordable prices.

Dental Implants in Harley StreetHow are implant-supported dentures different?

Unlike traditional dentures that simply rest on your gums, an implant-supported denture is securely fixed to a number of dental implants (usually four) embedded into the jawbone. The installation of implant-supported dentures is generally completed in two stages. The first stage requires the installation of dental implants through surgery, and once the implant sites have healed, the upper part of the dental implants are exposed in order to attach the dentures.

Dentures supported by dental implants in Harley Street are of two types: bar-retained and ball-retained. The first type consists of a thin metal bar aligned to the arc of the jaw, which is attached to your dental implants with special clips. Ball-retained dentures, on the other hand, are usually removable and are designed to fit into an attachment made on the denture. Once in place, both types of implant-retained dentures are very stable and resilient.

Benefits of implant-supported dentures

Patients who choose implant-supported dentures over conventional dentures are more confident when they talk, laugh, and eat in public. Implant-supported dentures are also more comfortable because they fit snugly over the gums and feel like natural teeth, thus eliminating irritation of gum tissue and sores. Best of all, dental implants have the unique ability to fuse with the living bone, therefore, they protect your jawbone from deterioration and encourage the growth of new bone.

Trying to find clear braces in Harley Street

If you’re looking for clear braces in Harley Street, Harley Street Dental Clinic may be just the place that you’re looking for. We have helped to correct many orthodontic problems for our adult patients with our range of clear braces, which allow you to enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth without anyone else knowing. Because your orthodontic needs are unique to you, we offer a number of different types of clear braces that are suitable for both simple and more complex corrections. In Harley Street, clear braces are proving to be ideal if your appearance is an important part of your work. They simply allow you to carry on with your professional daily life and help to improve the appearance of your teeth and your self-confidence.

clear-braces-harley-streetIt has been estimated by the British Orthodontic Society that almost three quarters of all adults would benefit from having their teeth straightened. In many cases you may either have missed out on the chance to have braces when you were growing up, or if you did have braces and did not have a fixed retainer fitted to your teeth at the end of the treatment, you may have noticed that they have moved back towards their original position. The reason many adults have not had their teeth straightened is because they do not wish to wear the traditional fixed braces with stainless steel brackets and wires.

Technology to make you smile

Thankfully advances in the types of materials available have lead to the development of a range of different types of clear braces. These can be made from porcelain, or clear plastic and some are fixed, while others are removable. Porcelain braces have brackets and wires in the same way that traditional fixed braces do, but they are made from tooth-coloured materials, which are virtually unnoticeable once they are fitted. These braces work in the same way as traditional braces but are far more difficult to see.

Removable Invisalign aligners allow you to enjoy eating all your favourite foods whilst having your teeth straightened, something that can be more difficult while you are wearing fixed braces. Although they need to be worn for a minimum of 20 hours each day, they can safely be removed whilst eating and for cleaning your teeth or the aligners.

Transform your smile, find a cosmetic dentist in Harley Street

There is no doubt how powerful a smile is, but for many of us, our teeth may not give us much reason to want to smile. Your teeth may be healthy, but perhaps their appearance makes you feel less than happy, and this is where you need a cosmetic dentist. Harley Street Dental Clinic can provide a range of cosmetic dental treatments to give you a smile to be proud of. Over the past few years, there have been some major advances in the range of cosmetic dental treatments that are now available.

cosmetic-dentist-harley-streetOver time our teeth suffer from the effects of daily life and become dull and stained with the foods and drinks that we consume regularly. In these circumstances, a teeth whitening treatment may be enough to restore the smile of your youth. Teeth whitening treatments only work on stains on the surfaces of your teeth, unfortunately some antibiotics and other medical conditions can lead to staining or discolouration developing within the teeth and this cannot be resolved with teeth whitening products.

Reshaped, restored or replaced

Dental veneers are a very popular solution for a number of cosmetic dental issues. They can be used to repair a single worn or damaged tooth, cover up discolouration or close small gaps between teeth. Because they are made of porcelain or a dental composite, veneers generally have a life span of about ten years. If you are having a smile-makeover and are planning to have your teeth whitened, you should do this before having any veneers fitted, this is because the colour of dental veneers cannot be changed by bleaching.

If the worst has happened and you have lost a tooth or teeth, dental implants are the most effective method of tooth replacement. Because they are fitted into your jawbone, they will look and function like your original teeth, they also help to ensure that your jaws remain strong and healthy for years to come.

Everything you could want from a cosmetic dentist in Harley Street is available under one roof. Our aim is always to give you the smile that you have always dreamed of, so stop dreaming and book an appointment with us here at Harley Street Dental Clinic.

Rejuvenate your skin with Botox and dermal fillers at our W1 dental clinic

Has your skin lost its elasticity over the ages? Has sun damage or pollution taken a toll on your skin and caused wrinkles and fine lines? Botox and dermal fillers at Harley Street Dental Clinic can help reverse your premature signs of ageing, allowing you to look and feel like much younger. At our dental clinic in W1, you can trust that our combination of dental and cosmetic services will make sure you always look and feel your best.

Dermal Fillers in W1Botox and dermal fillers

Botox and dermal fillers are very popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments, which can reduce your wrinkles and fine lines in a fast, efficient and safe way. Botox is a refined form of botulinum toxin that treats lines and wrinkles in the facial area, such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows. Unlike dermal fillers, which replace the collagen in your skin, Botox is directed at facial muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. More specifically, Botox targets wrinkles caused by continuous muscle movements. The treatment relaxes these muscles, giving your face a fresher appearance.

Dermal fillers on the other hand are used to fill in and plump up lines and wrinkles under the skin. These injections are ideal for reducing the effects of ageing without resorting to plastic surgery. Fillers fill your lines and wrinkles in with collagen, while at the same time they add volume to thin lips and define the contours of your face. Unlike Botox, which can take a few days to show its effects, the results of dermal fillers are immediately visible.

What can I expect?

Treatment with Botox or dermal fillers is quick, safe and minimally invasive. The injections take less than 30 minutes to be administered by our experienced dentists and do not usually require anaesthesia. The number of injections that you will need depends on many factors, including the type of wrinkles and fine lines.

Straighten your smile with discreet orthodontics in Harley Street

Contrary to popular opinion, orthodontics are not just for children. In recent years, an increasing number of adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles as more people realise it’s never too late to get the smile of your dreams.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we appreciate that orthodontics can have a deep impact on multiple aspects of an adult’s life, including their oral and overall health and confidence. Achieving a straighter smile as an adult can make a significant different in the health of your teeth and gums, thus reducing the risk for gum disease and tooth decay. However, traditional braces can be more visible than some adults would prefer. Luckily, we offer several cosmetically-pleasing options for adults seeking to straighten their teeth with orthodontics in Harley Street.

Orthodontics in Harley StreetLingual braces

Unlike conventional metal braces, lingual braces made of high-quality nickel brackets and wires are fixed onto the back of your teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable and invisible. Lingual braces work just like traditional braces and can treat a number of moderate to severe teeth straightening issues as effectively.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment, which, instead of wires and brackets, uses customised, removable, transparent, plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gums. Each aligner has to be worn for at least two weeks before moving to the next one in the series, helping move your teeth gradually until they reach the right position. The clear aligners are removable and can be easily taken out to brush and floss your teeth as well as eat your favourite foods and snacks. However, you have to wear them at least 22 hours a day for effective treatment.

Clear braces

Clear braces work just like metal braces, but offer the patient confidence whilst they are wearing them, as they are made of tooth-coloured, porcelain brackets and wires. This way they blend more naturally with your teeth. Clear braces are ideal for self-conscious adults with busy lifestyles.

Discover the benefits of dental implants in Harley Street

Although teeth are meant to last forever, tooth loss is a reality for thousands of people in the UK. This is often the result of tooth decay, gum disease, bad oral hygiene or injury. While years ago the only options for replacing missing teeth were dentures or bridges, nowadays dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement option. They replace the tooth at the root for a more natural smile.

Dental Implants in Harley StreetIn Harley Street, dental implants can be used to replace one, several or all of your missing teeth. At Harley Street Dental Clinic we offer a range of dental implant solutions to suit your budget and lifestyle needs. Whether you opt for individual dental implants or full mouth restorations, our experienced dentists, Dr Pedja Pavlovic and Dr Charlotte Stilwell, will guide you through the procedure from the very start.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts, which are fixed into the jawbone and substitute the roots of a missing tooth. Dental implants in Harley Street consist of 3 parts – a small titanium screw that is permanently fixed to the bone of your upper or lower jaw, an abutment used to connect the implant with the replacement tooth and the replacement tooth itself, which is designed to match your natural teeth. Replacement teeth can be single crowns, bridges or dentures.

Benefits of dental implants

Unlike conventional dentures and bridges, dental implants are attached firmly into your jawbone, just like your natural teeth. This means that your implants will stay in place, instead of slipping around in your mouth or loosening over time. Dental implants are strong and steady, allowing you to enjoy your favourite foods. Their permanent nature will help you focus on your daily activities, instead of worrying about your teeth.

More importantly, dental implants help to preserve your healthy teeth, your jawbone and your facial structure. Your jawbone is stimulated from daily chewing and talking. When you lose one or more teeth, the jawbone doesn’t receive this stimulation anymore and it starts to deteriorate. Dental implants fuse into the jawbone and prevent this process from occurring, while also encouraging the growth of new healthy bone.

How can your W1 dentist help you overcome bad breath

Having bad breath can compromise your social life, but most people get over it by brushing their teeth on a regular basis. However, a few unlucky ones suffer from persistent bad breath, a condition also known as halitosis. This can be because of poor oral health, or it might be due to illnesses or disease, or even certain medications. Halitosis can worsen through specific lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption or eating strongly flavoured foods.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we understand that bad breath can be embarrassing. We therefore will perform a simple oral examination to help diagnose the underlying cause of your bad breath.

Bad Breath in W1Our dentist in W1 will discuss your daily habits with you, including nutrition and medications that you may take. Your dentist will then examine your mouth for signs of decay or gum disease that could be the culprits of your bad breath. If your chronic bad breath cannot be traced to a dental issue or a daily habit, you may need to visit your GP for further examination.

Our dentist in W1 will also suggest having your teeth professionally cleaned, as this will help remove plaque build-up, helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy and freshening up your breath.

Common causes of bad breath

Most cases of bad breath come from food trapped in your teeth and bacteria that build up in your mouth. Together they create a sticky film of plaque over your teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. If not properly removed through brushing, this film will start to release rather unsavoury smells.

Some people experience particularly bad breath in the morning. This is quite normal and happens because the mouth tends to get dry overnight, giving bacteria the chance to thrive. This usually goes away once you’re awake and with proper hydration.

As mentioned earlier, bad breath can also be caused by certain foods, smoking as well as some medications. This type of bad breath is temporary and will resolve after you’ve completed your course of medication or by avoiding those foods.

To find out if your bad breath can be helped with dental treatment, get in touch with us today.

Cosmetic Dentist in Harley StreetTeeth whitening

For whiter and brighter teeth, professional teeth whitening treatment is necessary. While many patients are eager to try over-the-counter whitening kits, which are cheaper and more convenient, professional teeth whitening is safer, since it is controlled by your cosmetic dentist in Harley Street.

We offer professional teeth whitening services that produce fast and radical results that are customised for each individual patient. Our professional treatments include power whitening in the dental chair, home whitening with custom-made trays or a combination of both, if needed. All these treatments will lead to healthy and beautiful smiles with less sensitivity.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells that are bonded over natural teeth in order to repair chips and cracks, fix gapped and crooked teeth as well as whiten tooth enamel. Dental veneers are either made of dental porcelain, composite bonding or ceramic. At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we offer all three options, however, we appreciate that porcelain veneers are more lifelike and reflect light naturally. Depending on each individual case, dental veneers may be used to either protect damaged teeth, or to improve their cosmetic appeal.

Gum lift

If you show too much gum when your smile or have uneven gums, a gum lift is a simple smile enhancement procedure that can radically improve your smile. With the aid of dental laser technology, this treatment increases the length of teeth and tones down excessive gum tissue for an attractive and balanced smile.

Visible gains with invisible braces in Harley Street

When it comes to crooked and misaligned teeth among adults, braces might be the first thing that most people will think . While traditional braces are very effective at making smiles straight, they aren’t your only option if you want to have your teeth straightened.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we recognise that each patient has unique dental needs and we strive to provide our patients with the highest level of personalised treatment. If you are a self-conscious teenager or adult who is looking into teeth straightening treatments, Invisalign invisible braces in Harley Street may be the ideal option for you.

Invisible Braces in Harley StreetWhat is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment. As with traditional braces, the aim of Invisalign is to correct orthodontic problems by aligning the teeth and jaw. It consists of a series of transparent, customised, removable, plastic aligners, which help move your teeth into their correct position over a specific amount of time prescribed by your dentist.

As you progress through the treatment, the aligners will become tighter fitting, moving teeth into the required position to create a beautiful straight smile. Your dentist will provide a new set of aligners every two weeks or so. Invisalign invisible braces can be removed for up to two hours a day for eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. However, they must remain in place for at least 22 hours a day to successfully straighten your teeth.

Advantages of Invisalign

Unlike traditional braces that use metal wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, which fits snugly over your teeth and gums. This way you are unlikely to experience any mouth trauma. Invisalign also allows for flexibility. Since the aligners can be taken out, you can remove them for a short period of time, allowing you to have control over your appearance. Moreover, Invisalign promotes good oral care, reducing the risk for gum disease and tooth decay. Last but not least, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, therefore few people will even realise you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.
