Facial Aesthetics at York Place Dental

Lines and wrinkles can develop as a result of environmental damage and as a natural side effect of ageing. Wrinkle reduction injectables are a popular treatment and help to soften frown lines, crow's feet and forehead wrinkles. Botox is the most researched and widely used cosmetic treatment available. It is very safe and effective.

Botox is a prescription only medicine and should only be administered by trained professionals.

We provide a safe and caring environment where your wellbeing is our priority.

You'll need to first meet with our Facial Aesthetics Practitioner, Louise and our Principle Dentist, Richard. You will have a face to face consultation. They'll want to fully understand your medical history and reasons for wanting the treatment. If the treatment is suitable for you and you decide you want to go ahead, Richard will prescribe the Botox and you will come back on another day when Louise will administer the treatment. We offer convenient evening and lunchtime appointments.

Protein is injected into the muscle which temporarily relaxes it and reduces the depth of fine lines, enabling a more youthful and rested look. Botox acts by blocking a chemical which causes muscle contractions, so the muscles are then temporarily relaxed restricting movement.

The treatment is quick and relatively painless. It usually takes around 20 minutes to be carried out safely. Your skin is cleaned and small amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the muscles of the face that are to be treated.

It can take up to 2 weeks post treatment to take effect.

Botulinum toxin injections can last an average of 3-6 months. Further appointments will be required to maintain the desired effect.

The following areas can be suitably treated:

Frown Lines. Forehead Wrinkles. Crows Feet

One Area £185

Two Areas £225

Three Areas £260

Orthodontics at York Place Dental

This young lady was unhappy with the appearance of her teeth. After discussing different options she decided to go ahead with discreet clear ceramic braces and some teeth whitening. She is over the moon with the results.

We offer a range of orthodontics to suit your individual needs. Call us to book your free orthodontic consultation to find out more.

Well done Elly

A huge well done to Elly who gained her qualification in Oral Health Education in November last year.

In the meantime, Elly has been running our OHE service at York Place Dental and she has also been going out to schools in Cumbria to deliver Oral Health Education sessions.

She has since been offered a place at University to study Oral Health Science to become a Dental Hygiene Therapist.

Patient Testimonials

After a terrible experience at a Carlisle dentist a few years ago I decided never to go back to a dentist again unless my teeth were falling out!!! However never say never. In September I bucked up the courage and found myself at York Place Dental.

What can I say....... Richard and his team are fantastic. They immediately put me at ease, talked me through every single thing that I needed doing reassuring me all the way. All of my treatment was pain free even my root canal with David. Which I must admit only the thought scared the life out of me.
From the professional, kind, warm receptionists and dental nurses to the Dental Hygienist, David and of course Richard himself I can't thank you all enough for giving me back my confidence and feeling much better about my teeth. Even though my treatment is far from finished I am no longer afraid of going to the dentist.

Thank you


Friendly, Professional, and Experts in their field. Look no further.


I've been a patient at York Place since before I even had teeth and I am now in my twenties. I wouldn't dream of ever visiting another practice as each visit here is absolutely perfect! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and do everything they can to help you. Everything is always explained to you and there are never any nasty surprises. The treatment is always A*. I've recently undergone orthodontic treatment and absolutely cannot fault it in anyway. We got the results we wanted much quicker than originally planned thanks to Richard and his ideas. After being self-conscious of my crooked teeth for so long I am now proud to show off my new smile and love the final look! I would 100% recommend York Place to everyone.


Pain free general and cosmetic dentistry. Some of the treatments I've had include root canal treatment, crowns and veneers. Each procedure was painless and comfortable and I am very happy with the results.


Gold standard dentistry from start to finish. Every member of the practice is friendly, helpful and professional. I received orthodontic treatment, teeth whitening and two replacement veneers all within a very short 6 months, in time for my wedding in December. Nothing was ever too much trouble even squeezing in multiple appointments at my convenience and fast tracking impressions to the lab to ensure I had the perfect smile for my wedding photos. I am no longer embarrassed to smile and receive complements about my teeth. As I have received such fantastic treatment and after care I have now joined the practice and I have full confidence in Richard and his team.

Digital Scanner 

Digital technology is revolutionising the dental industry. Here at York Place Dental we are always looking at ways we can work more efficiently and improve the patient experience.

In December last year we purchased a 3Shape Digital Intraoral Scanner to reduce the need to take impressions. Taking intra oral scans is a much simpler process than taking impressions, they are more accurate, much quicker and much more comfortable for the patient.

Taking digital impressions is much more comfortable for patients. It is so much faster to scan a mouth and there is no gooey mess as no impression material is needed.

Some other great benefits are that we are able to share the 3D digital scan with the patient and our scanner comes with TRIOS Smile Design, a fantastic tool that is 'changing lives' as well as a treatment simulator for showing patients the envisioned results of their orthodontic or cosmetic treatment.

It is also a useful tool for teaching patients good oral health techniques by rotating the 3D digital image to view any surface of the teeth and to identify and discuss any areas of concern with the patient.

For more information please call us at the practice or come and see us for your free digital scan.

Tips to avoid tooth decay:

  • Brushing teeth thoroughly twice a day with fluoride-containing toothpaste as well as flossing daily.
  • Reducing the amount of sugars and sticky foods, and rinsing the mouth with water if they are consumed.
  • Reduce snacking; which helps reduce the production of acid in the mouth.
  • Reduce the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages.
  • Only eat sugary foods at mealtimes.
