Composite Veneers in London, UK

Veneers are custom-made porcelain moulding, which a dental professional bonds to the front tooth surface. They are an effective and quick solution for misshapen, crooked, chipped or stained teeth.

Veneers can also cover gaps between the teeth for cases where orthodontic treatment is unsuitable. A veneer is a cosmetic dental treatment made to cover only the front part of the teeth. They enhance the tooth colour, shape and size to give a more natural-looking result.

You will choose a precise shade of porcelain for your desired result. The veneer can also improve one discoloured tooth or lighten the front teeth.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of veneers?


Veneers give more even and whiter teeth

Fitting veneers can improve your smile by giving you whiter and more even teeth.

Give a realistic and natural look

Porcelain veneers have the same light-reflecting quality as the teeth, giving a more natural-looking finish.


Veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic dental solution. Your veneers can last for more than ten years with proper care

Stain-resistant and strong

Porcelain veneers are more durable and stain-resistant than composite bonding. They are also as strong as the crown.


Permanent teeth damage

The enamel on the front tooth surface often requires filling down to fit the veneer. The enamel is a thin outer layer of the surface of the tooth, which protects the tooth. Filing down the enamel means a permanent teeth alteration.


Some patients experience increased sensitivity from fitting veneers


Although porcelain veneers are strong, they can break from exposure to high impacts, such as grinding the teeth and biting down on hard foods. If you have a damaged veneer, you need to replace or repair it.

What is the cost of veneers?

The cost of veneers varies depending on your specific needs, like how many veneers are required and the material used to make the veneer. Composite veneers usually cost less than porcelain options. /p>

During your consultation, our dentist will explain your options and the costs. You may request payment plans to make the procedure more affordable.

Whichever veneer you choose, it should be the right option. Our dentist will inform you of each veneer’s pros and cons and which will be the most suitable.

Veneer fitting procedure

After your consultation to ensure you are a good candidate for veneers, you will have the fitting in these three steps.

Step 1 – tooth preparation to hold the veneer

Our dentist may need to file down your teeth before the veneer placement. This process involves removing a thin layer of your teeth’s enamel to allow the veneer to fit properly. The enamel does not have nerves, so you won’t need anaesthesia for the procedure, but the dentist may offer dental sedation to help you relax.

Step – taking the tooth impression

Our dentist will take your teeth impression with a 3D digital scanner, then fit the temporary veneer, which you can wear for a few weeks.

Step 3 – attaching the new veneer

Our dentist will attach the permanent veneer to the teeth with a strong dental glue and make the necessary adjustments.

After the veneer placement, your gums may feel sore, which is normal and will stop after a few days, but brush carefully.

Can I fit veneers with receding gums or gum disease?

If you’re experiencing tooth decay or gum disease, you need treatment before placing veneers. During your consultation, the dentist will perform an X-ray to check for any dental problems and recommend the necessary steps.

If you have receding gums, you can be a suitable candidate for veneers. Your dentist will examine your mouth to make a decision. The dentist may recommend gingival veneer to cover the area with receding gum tissue.

How can I care for my veneers?

Veneers need the same care as your natural teeth. The care options include:

  • Flossing daily
  • Brushing your teeth two times daily with fluoride toothpaste
  • Visiting the dentist for regular check-ups and the hygienist for cleanings

Your dentist will advise on the appropriate aftercare.

What are alternatives to veneers available?

Several alternative treatments to veneers are available. They include:

Composite bonding

In composite bonding, the dentist applies resin to a tooth to fill small gaps or chips or improve a discoloured tooth. Composite bonding is a non-invasive and quick option for restoring the natural colour and shape of the tooth.

Teeth whitening

If you want to remove stains on your teeth, the dentist may advise undergoing professional teeth whitening.


A dental crown is a tooth-like cap placed over the visible part of the tooth. The crown functions and feels like natural teeth.


You can wear removable or fixed braces to close gaps and straighten misaligned teeth. The virtually invisible options are available if you have aesthetic concerns.

Ensure you consider all available options to make the right choice. Our dentist will explain the options and advise you on the most suitable to achieve your desired result.
