And A Little Bit About Dermal Fillers

Other substances used widely in Facial Rejuvenation procedures are Dermal Fillers such as Restylane and Hydrafill. These two products are based on on hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid binds with the water in our bodies and gives the skin that nice, plumped out look. As we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases leading to sagging skin and skin folds.

Dermal fillers are used to soften and contour lines, folds, and wrinkles. They are a minimally invasive procedure with little or no recovery time. They cost less then surgery and have minimal risks. Dermal fillers have become a very trendy way to address the aging process. They can be injected into areas with fine lines and wrinkles and are also effective for increasing fullness to narrow lips, enhancing sunken cheeks and can even be used to contour the bridge of the nose.

Injections of dermal fillers can be a little uncomfortable so it's a good idea to have your treatment carried out by myself who is qualified in these procedures.I can administer Local Anaesthetic injections to make your treatment much more comfortable. Results are visible almost immediately which is very good news for patients. Injections will need to be repeated after 6 - 9 months as the effects gradually diminish, although sometimes they can last over a year. The effects are likely to disappear faster in areas that are more affected by muscle movement.

Dermal fillers are available in different grades or thicknesses and can be used to treat naso-labial lines, smoker's lines, lip enhancement, deep brow creases and other facial areas

Dermal fillers simply allow me to inject those naturally occurring components back into the dermis, thereby restoring skin's volume and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and scars. Dermal fillers are most commonly sought as a safe and effective way to diminish the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles, such as crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and oral commissures. They are the natural, safe and instant way to soften your lines and folds.

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental Crowns in Essex!

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover fitted over a tooth that is decayed or damaged. Also called caps, crowns are made to look just like your natural teeth. Crowns can hold together parts of a broken tooth and can also be used to hold a bridge in place. Misshapen and badly discolored teeth can also be covered by crowns. Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

There are many reasons why people see their cosmetic dentist to get crowns, but generally the tooth has been damaged quite extensively, and filling material cannot replace the missing tooth structure to make the tooth strong enough.

How are Crowns Made?

Some crowns are prefabricated; prefabricated crowns can be used as a temporary restoration until a permanent crown is custom made for you. Crowns can be all metal, porcelain fused to metal (PFM), or all ceramic. The metals used in making crowns are gold alloy, other alloys such as palladium or a base-metal alloy such as nickel or chromium. The all metal and PFM crowns are the strongest and are typically used for back teeth. Crowns can last at least 7 years typically, but some have much longer.

The Procedure

Since teeth requiring crowns are often decayed and damaged, endodontic (root canal) treatment is often necessary before the crown is placed. However, not everyone who needs a crown will also need a root canal. To put a crown in place, your dentist must file down the tooth to make room for it. After filing down the tooth, he or she will use a piece of thread or cord to push the gum down around the tooth and then make an impression of the tooth. The impression material is removed after several minutes.

The impressions are sent to the lab and the crown is made. In the meantime, you will receive a temporary crown usually made of plastic and made right in the office on the day of your visit. At your next visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown will be tested. Once the crown is ready, it is cemented to your tooth.


Having a crown placed is a fairly simple procedure that typically does not cause any post-procedure discomfort or sensitivity. If you do notice pain or sensitivity when you bite down, you should call your dentist as this usually means the crown is too high on the tooth and can be easily fixed.

If your crown becomes loose or chipped, you should call your dentist. If the crown comes completely out of your mouth, clean the crown and the tooth and call your dentist to get an appointment the next day to have this repaired.

Since a dental crown serves to cup over and encase the visible portion of a tooth, any dental crown that has a porcelain surface can be used as a means to idealize the cosmetic appearance of a tooth. Possibly you have heard it rumored (especially in past decades) that certain movie stars have had their teeth "capped." This simply means that the person has obtained their "Hollywood smile" by way of having dental crowns placed.

Actually, getting your teeth "capped" just to improve their cosmetic appearance can, at times, be a very poor choice. Dental crowns are best utilized as a way to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth when the crown simultaneously serves other purposes also, such as restoring a tooth to its original shape (repairing a broken tooth) or strengthening a tooth (covering over a tooth that has a very large filling).

In general, a dental crown probably should not be used as a means to improve the appearance of a tooth if there is any other alternative dental treatment that could equally satisfactorily achieve the same cosmetic results. This is because a dentist must grind a significant portion of a tooth away when a dental crown is made. If a more conservative dental procedure could equally well improve the tooth's appearance, such as a porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or even just teeth whitening, then it is usually best to consider that treatment option first.

Invisible Dental Braces Invisalign In Essex!

Dr. Basrai has now been accredited by INVISALIGN and has been Awarded a SILVER MEMBERSHIP for his outstanding achievements in this field of cosmetic dentist.

You can be assured of truly professional care at all times when it comes to Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign clear braces system is a new orthodontic treatment system used by cosmetic dentists that works to straighten your teeth through the use of clear plastic molds. These invisible braces eliminate the metallic smile that is characteristic of traditional braces. Invisalign invisible braces are custom-molded to fit you.

The practically invisible braces gradually reposition your teeth into the straighter, more attractive smile you've always wanted. The convenience and ease of Invisalign have made it the choice for over 500,000 people in recent years. One of the most appealing aspects of the Invisalign system is that there are no metal wires or bands constantly irritating your mouth. Invisalign's popularity may also be attributed to the fact that most people won't even notice your braces and the braces won't interrupt your busy lifestyle.

The Invisalign Process

After you and your cosmetic dentist decide that Invisalign is the best option for you, he/she will use computer imaging to create your invisible braces. After taking bite impressions of your mouth, the dentist will use the Invisalign computer system to create a series of clear retainers. The very first one will fit the current configuration of your teeth, and each successive retainer will apply gentle pressure to move your teeth to their target alignments.

The number of applications will depend on your individual needs, but the average number is between 18-30. Each retainer is worn for two weeks, 24 hours a day (except during meals), and then the next aligner is used. The complete Invisalign teeth repositioning process takes the same amount of time as traditional orthodontics.

Advantages and Disadvantages

The are many advantages to the Invisalign system. A number of people would rather live with crooked teeth than entertain the thought of living with silver, painful braces for two years or more. The clear Invisalign system was created to introduce much-needed aesthetics to the field of orthodontics. This system also allows its wearers to brush and floss as they normally would, reducing the chances of staining and decay that often occur with traditional braces. Food and drink limitations are not necessary; if patients wish to eat or drink foods that may interfere with the braces, they can simple remove the retainer.

The disadvantages of the Invisalign system are few, if any at all. People who do not wear the retainers as directed may not see the results they desired. Some people with sensitive teeth and/or gums may feel some discomfort when they switch to a new retainer. These problems are certainly minor and rare, and most patients say the benefits far outweigh any problems.

The cost of Invisalign may be higher than traditional braces, and the cost depends on how many aligners need to be created for you to achieve the desired results. Your dental insurance may cover the treatment, but you should ask your insurance company directly what they cover regarding dental/orthodontic procedures before committing to anything.

Cosmetic Dentist In Essex Uses New Dental Laser

We would all like to stop tooth decay before it affects the whiteness of our smile, and especially before it leads to painful cavities that may have to be drilled out. The problem is that dentists are only human and can only see with human eyes. Their eyes are trained, but by the time a dentist can see caries (tooth decay), so can anyone else, and by the time they can see the caries, the damage has already been done. Even worse, as surface dental health has improved through the fluoridation of water, caries has begun to appear below the surface where no one can see it until it is too late.

Until now, the only tool available to dentists to detect sub-surface caries was exploratory drilling. And who wants more drilling, especially in teeth that might be healthy?

But now a new solution is available. DIAGNOdent laser caries detection aid that can “see” safely through the enamel to detect caries that are too small or too deep for dentists using more traditional methods.

DIAGNOdent is more effective than traditional detection methods

We have all suffered under the dentist’s pick. The grating metal against our enamel, the scraping, the (sometimes painful) probing. No one likes it, but we suffer through it because we assume that it allows the dentist to find all those caries that need to be treated to keep our teeth healthy, bright, and functional. What if you were told that a study showed dentists using the pick were only able to find caries 58% of the time? That means that if it were a test, dentists would get, at best, a D- in finding cavities.

What about x-rays? You remember biting down on that obnoxious plastic film while the dentist puts a led apron on you and then hides in the other room. With all that discomfort and radiation exposure, it must do a better job of finding caries. Yes, but not much. The same study showed that the x-ray bitewing only detected 67% of the caries: a C-.

But don’t you deserve A-level caries detection? Of course. And only one method allows that level of detection: DIAGNOdent. DIAGNOdent has proven 90% effective in finding dental fissures.

DIAGNOdent has none of the drawbacks of traditional methods

Not only is DIAGNOdent more effective than traditional detection methods, but think of all the unpleasantness associated with the dentist that you can do without:

· NO scratching or probing with the pick
· NO x-ray exposure or uncomfortable bitewing

And most of all:
· NO exploratory drilling.

And even without all these painful nuisances, you’ll be getting unprecedented accuracy in the diagnosis of present and possible future caries.

Additional Benefits of DIAGNOdent

In addition to these appreciable benefits over traditional detection methods, DIAGNOdent allows numerous other, previously unanticipated benefits:

· Allows the use of minimally invasive treatments without unnecessary procedures by ensuring an accurate diagnosis of even hidden caries. Ideal for use with air abrasion and micro-rotary treatments.
· Allows dentists to track the development of caries over time to immediately identify problems to possibly isolate and remedy causes.
· Results are completely reproducible and documentable.
· Increased confidence and comfort mean you won’t dread returning to the dentist and can stop any problems before they get out of hand.

Tooth Whitening In Essex !

Do you have Dark Stained teeth??

Not everyone can commit to the cost of a full smile makeover. If you are happy with your teeth but wish they were whiter , bleaching is the least expensive option to brighten your smile.

We sometimes bleach the teeth before doing any cosmetic procedure - sometimes this reduces the number of veneers needed.


A solution of 30% hydrogen peroxide is applied to your teeth and activated by a high intensity light or laser to acclerate the whitening process.

Approximately one hour later you are out of the door.

Be aware that visits maybe needed to get your desired tooth shade.


We may suggest home bleaching which is a least expensive option that requires a longer commitment but still yield the same results as in office bleaching.

Thin plastic trays are made that are custom fitted for you!
