Refresh Your Smile and Your Face with Chemical Peels

At Advance Dental, we specialise in creating and preserving beautiful smiles, but we also offer the latest facial treatments. Our non-surgical services are designed to make you look and feel incredible. One of our most popular treatment options is a chemical peel.

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are designed to remove surface cells to rejuvenate, revive and reinvigorate the skin. If your skin lacks sparkle, you’re worried about the signs of ageing, or you have pigmentation or scarring, a chemical peel could give you the complexion you crave. A peel involves applying a chemical mask to the skin, which promotes skin cell renewal and rids the surface of dead cells.

Why would I need a chemical peel?

Every day, your skin is subjected to potential hazards and wear and tear. Sun damage, the wind, and your lifestyle habits can all take their toll on the look and feel of your skin. A chemical peel is designed to breathe new life into your complexion and make you feel more confident. Using specially designed chemical exfoliants, this procedure can brighten the complexion, reduce the visibility of pores, scars and blemishes and enable you to embrace and enjoy your natural beauty.

How does a chemical peel work?

Chemical peels target the superficial layers of the skin, and they can help to target a number of skin problems. If you have blemishes, pigmentation, lines or large pores, this treatment can help to reverse the signs of ageing caused by sun exposure, minimise pores and smooth the surface of the skin, as well as increasing radiance and youthfulness.

What does the treatment involve?

Chemical peels are administered over the course of a series of sessions, which take place a week apart. Before treatment commences, you will be provided with a specially designed primer to protect and prepare your skin. You will then have four sessions and these will be followed by aftercare. By the end of treatment, you should notice an incredible difference in the look of your skin.

How Veneers Can Give A Straighter Smile With No Braces

If your teeth aren’t perfectly straight, you may assume that your only option is to wear a brace. The good news is that this isn’t the only treatment out there that will benefit you. If you don’t want to have braces, you could consider veneers instead.

What exactly are veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-shaped shells, which are placed onto the surfaces of the natural teeth to transform the smile. In many cases, veneers are made from ceramic materials, most commonly porcelain. They look very similar to natural teeth and they can change the aesthetic of the smile dramatically.

Veneers are a very versatile cosmetic treatment, and they can be used to address a wide range of cosmetic flaws, including:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Stained and discoloured teeth
  • Worn and misshapen teeth

Veneers vs. braces

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, this can affect the overall aesthetic of your smile and your confidence. If you long for a more attractive smile, you may be considering having braces. Braces are a very effective solution for orthodontic problems, which affect the alignment of the teeth and the bite. While many patients opt to have braces to straighten the teeth, this isn’t the only option. If you’re more concerned with the aesthetic of the smile, rather than repositioning the teeth, veneers may be a solution worth considering. Veneers won’t alter the position of the teeth, but they will enhance the look of your smile. Veneers produce results in around 2 weeks, while braces usually take at least 4 months.

If you long for a beautiful smile, and you’re not sure whether you should choose braces or veneers, our friendly, skilful dentists can talk you through the pros and cons of each option and give you tailored advice based on your individual needs and your treatment preferences and aims.

They can also be made from composite and other types of ceramic material. Veneers are designed to look like natural teeth, and they are placed over your teeth to create a spectacular smile. Veneers are ideal for discoloured and stained teeth, but they can also provide a solution for those with gaps between their teeth or crooked or crowded teeth.
