Reasons to visit your dentist for Facial Aesthetics

There are a few reasons why getting facial aesthetics at a dentist is a good idea, and why many of our dental patients choose to also come to us for these treatments.

First, dentists are experts in the care of the oral cavity, and they have a deep understanding of the anatomy of the face. This means that they can safely and effectively perform procedures that can improve the appearance of your face. For example, dentists can use their knowledge of the facial muscles to perform popular muscle relaxing injections (Botox) to reduce wrinkles.

Another consideration is that dentists are trained in cosmetic procedures, and they are experienced at using a variety of combined techniques to achieve your desired look, of which your smile is a big part. Their recommendations may include procedures such as teeth whitening, composite bonding, and Botox injections to get the results you want.

Very importantly, dentists are also licensed and regulated professionals. This means that you can be confident that you are receiving safe and effective care when you choose to have facial aesthetics at a dentist such as Cotteswold House. Dentists must pass rigorous training and exams to become licensed, and they are subject to ongoing continuing education requirements.

At Cotteswold House we are able to provide more competitively priced treatments than other providers of facial aesthetics because we perform our procedures in our dental surgeries, which already exceed the high standards required. Our patients enjoy the reassurance of having their treatments in a dentist’s chair, helping them to relax in the familiar clinical surroundings. Many patients are nervous before having facial aesthetics for the first time because they don’t know what to expect but coming to our surgery takes away some uncertainty, knowing that professionalism and hygiene is guaranteed.

Finally, our dental surgery is more conveniently located, easily accessible and discrete compared to some other providers of facial aesthetics, particularly those in the centre of town. With designated treatment days and a team of reception staff to answer calls and emails, it is easy to schedule an appointment that suits you.

Things to consider when finding a facial aesthetic provider
If you are considering facial aesthetics, be sure to talk through your options with us before going ahead. You can arrange a free consultation with our facial aesthetics practitioner who will help you choose the right procedures for your individual needs and goals.

We know it can be a big decision choosing your facial aesthetics practitioner, so here are some additional things to consider:

  • Make sure the practitioner is experienced in performing the procedures you are interested in.
  • Ask about their training and qualifications.
  • Talking to friends and family who have had facial aesthetics can help.
  • Ask about the cost of the procedures and what is included in the price ahead of time so there are no surprises.
  • Be sure to understand the risks and potential side effects of the procedures.
  • And ultimately, make sure you choose an experienced practitioner who you feel comfortable with and who you can trust.

If you are interested in learning more about facial aesthetics our reception team can schedule you a free consultation. This will help you determine if facial aesthetics are right for you and recommend the best treatment options for your individual needs.
