Facial aesthetics (also known as facial cosmetic treatments) are growing in popularity in the UK. We all want to have fresh and youthful skin and are constantly striving to find new ways of achieving this. Sharrow Dental are delighted to offer a range of facial cosmetic treatments in Chelmsford, designed to help reinvigorate and refresh your appearance.

Botox and Fillers

Wrinkles and lines come with age and these can dramatically affect your appearance and confidence. Wrinkles and lines tend to form due to your facial muscles slackening and can be made worse by the sun, smoking, alcohol and stress.

Botox is used to treat larger wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, and on the forehead. It helps to relax the muscles around the area where the wrinkles are, making them look far less visible.

We use dermal fillers to smoothen smaller lines on the face, including smile lines. They can also be used to plum up the lips or add volume to your cheeks.

FAQS

Why does my mouth feel dry?

Dry mouth can be a symptom of many different problems and can happen as you get older. Quite often it is a side effect of medication – especially heart, blood pressure and depression tablets.

If you have a dry mouth, this can be very uncomfortable and it can make eating certain foods very difficult.

Many prescription medicines can cause a dry mouth, if you are taking any regular medication from your doctor, it may be worth discussing these symptoms with him to see if there is an alternative that does not have the same side effects.

If you think that you are suffering with a dry mouth, you should discuss this with your dental team. They may recommend one of the many products that are available over-the-counter to help to alleviate this problem.

Generally any discomfort after an extraction does not last for long and can easily be controlled by the painkillers you would normally take for a headache. If it lasts any longer than 24 hours you should go back to your dental team for advice.

Sometimes pain may occur 2-4 days after the extraction when a blood clot has not formed properly in the extraction socket and the bone becomes infected – something called a ‘dry socket’. You will need to go back to your dentist, who will dress the socket for you.

It is important to do your research and familiarise yourself with the process in the country you are looking at having the treatment, as well as speaking about it with your dentist here first. The things you need to think about are:

Complications

Many people who are going abroad are looking for more advanced (higher cost) procedures which are more likely to result in complications. No matter how skilled the clinician, there is always a risk of treatment failure. If complications do arise once you are home, it will not always be easy to return to the clinic that provided the treatment, especially if there is an infection. Your insurance may not cover the travel costs involved in returning to the clinic, especially if you wish to return with a partner or friend.

Fine-tuning

Procedures such as crowns, bridges, veneers and implants are not easily carried out rapidly. Expertise and time are essential to achieving a good outcome. For instance, to achieve a perfect bite, the patient can require repeat visits and a series of adjustments. This may not be possible if the dentist is abroad.

Language barriers

It is always important that your clinician can communicate with you and explain the treatment provided and recommendations for post-surgical care. This is always more difficult when English is not the first language of your practitioner. He or she needs to know exactly what you want and you need to know exactly what you are getting. Problems and complaints often arise from communication issues.

Varying standards and approaches

Different countries have a different concept of aesthetic beauty. For example, in the USA very white and even teeth are thought attractive, whereas in the UK we prefer a more natural smile. There are also varying clinical standards and while in the UK, dentists are more likely to save a tooth, in some countries, dentists may be more ready to extract. Not all countries have the same high standards of cross-infection control, and in developing countries there can be a higher incidence of infectious diseases.

Calculate costs

Many of those considering travelling abroad believe that private dentistry in the UK is not affordable. However, sometimes this is based on an assumption. It is advisable to talk to a number of dental practices, check prices and ascertain if they have a payment plan in place. This can help spread treatment costs, making treatment both affordable and accessible.

We understand that privacy is important. If you would rather give your details to us in confidence, please tell reception. We will arrange to use a side room to deal with anything confidential.

Sorry it has taken me this long to write a review but I just want to thank Ian so much for my teeth. I had a brace put on and I was quite nervous throughout the whole procedure as I don’t feel totally comfortable whenever I go to the dentist, however Ian was always so professional and confident that I knew I was in safe hands. He is also very honest so you know what result you can achieve and what you can’t which I think is really important. I am so pleased with my teeth now the brace is off and I would 100% recommend!! thank you Ian & Sharrow.

Having had bad experiences in my early life , I’m so glad I found them and can only deduce that they only take on dentist who are a. fantastic at their job, b. very empathetic to those who have had bad experiences.
