A full set of teeth veneers to enhance your smile for a completely natural look in a single visit, serving people from across the uk.
Small changes in the shape of individual teeth, together with alignment and the colour and ‘finish’ can make all the difference to your smile. We craft each tooth to ensure a natural and consistent look.
For all our customers, the most important thing is that they look natural.
Creative Dental Artistry
Creating new smiles like those pictured below, with either composite or porcelain is an art form. Our skilled and experienced dentists, Jamie and Andrew have trained with the best, travelling around the world to study, and we all use the latest digital technology to ensure millimeter precision for that perfect smile.
It is amazing what this new composite bonding material helps us to do.
Composite Bonding Material
One of the truly innovative developments in Cosmetic Dentistry, the new materials make these immediate dental veneers possible to deliver in a single day.
Safe, Painless and Reversible
We want our new patients to know they are in safe hands; this treatment is completely painless and doesn’t harm the existing teeth in any way.
With all of our treatments, our philosophy is to preserve the original teeth for as long as possible, and all our composite teeth veneers can be reversed to the original teeth, for peace of mind.
No veneers should be thought as ‘forever’.
What is a Full Set of Veneers
Most people would like veneers for visible teeth only and will choose to veneer the top set of teeth, although some will come back for the bottom set too.
We take each case on its merits and if we can achieve great results with mild cases for a couple of teeth, that’s what we will recommend. The current smile line will show us how many teeth might need veneers.
Types of Veneers
Here are the different types of veneers you could consider:
- Porcelain veneers are the most natural-looking and the most durable material for veneers. They are biocompatible, meaning they rarely injure the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth. Porcelain veneers are very aesthetically pleasing and can really enhance your smile.
- Composite veneers, or also known as “same-day veneers‘ are made of composite resin – a mixture of inorganic and organic materials. They are a great alternative to Porcelain Veneers as they don’t stain very easily and are considered non-invasive. They don’t injure your natural teeth as much as Porcelain veneers. Aside from not breaking your natural teeth, they also don’t break your wallet as they are cheaper compared to porcelain veneers.
- Lumineers are a brand of veneers that are made of ultra-thin porcelain material and require less preparation before placement.
- Removable veneers or also called Snap-On veneers. There are two types of removable veneers: instant and custom-made clip-on veneers.
You can start with a remote consultation, and even send selfies to allow us to see the teeth and begin to give advice.
If you visit us here at the clinic, during the free consultation, the first thing we do is ask you to talk, smile and even laugh while we take photos and sometimes even a short video. We then analyse the resulting images (digital videos can be viewed frame by frame) to determine how many teeth show in these various situations.
Together we will decide what will suit your individual smile and we will be guided by you. Most people choose between 6 and 12 upper teeth, but it can change on a case by case basis. But it is your choice, and we are guided by what you would like to achieve.
Lower Teeth Veneers
The usual question for lower teeth is whether they need veneers at all. It often depends on these type of questions
1) Do the lower teeth show at all (some patients never show their lower teeth)
2) Are they ‘in shadow’ most of the time?
3) Are they straight or crooked?
For many patients the lowers are much less visible and can often be treated using simple whitening and if they wish to solve crooked lower teeth, then we can use a fast aligner instead to straighten them up in a matter of weeks.
What does a Full Set of Veneers cost?
The cost will depend on the number of teeth you choose, but the usual number for a narrow full set of veneers would be 6, and the most we have done is 12 for broad smiles and we can achieve a lot with a couple of veneers.
More likely, it could be 8 visible teeth, but a free consultation will show us exactly what can be done.
Our veneers cost per tooth is priced £395, and so for a fabulous new smile in a single visit, 6 Veneers it is £2,370 and for 8 Veneers it is £3,160
Compared to the cost of Porcelain, we think this is great value.
Smile Design Options
Highly Crooked Teeth
If the teeth are very crooked indeed, then veneers will only improve things by 50%. In these cases, we can blend teeth straightening treatment and complete the transformation with veneers. We have many types of teeth straightening.
High Standards of Care
Veneers are still a medical treatment, as well as a cosmetic one, and we are highly qualified with patient centred care at the heart of everything we do. You are in safe hands.
One of the advantages of a full set of veneers is that matching the existing tooth colour isn’t necessary. For those patients who want the mega-wow factor and won’t be satisfied with simple bleaching, veneers allow us to go ‘as white as you like’ of course!
We usually recommend general teeth whitening before colour matching and starting treatment.
It means that colour matching existing teeth is only an issue for smaller cases where we might be veneering 2-4 teeth and have to match them to the shade of adjacent natural teeth (which naturally we whiten first!).
How long do veneers last
Veneers only last 5-8 years before they get chipped, stained around the edges and need redoing in many cases.
These days we frequently use ultra-thin all porcelain crowns instead which are more durable and allow us greater control over the size and shape of the new teeth and a greater depth of colour for a more natural look.
Porcelain (ceramic) veneers and crowns cost the same at the moment, from £738 each.
The Free Consultation
Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.
And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.
We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much do dental veneers cost?
How long does it take to get a full set of veneers fitted in?
Immediate/composite veneers are fitted in one sitting, eg. about 2 hours to fit a set of 6.
Can I get a full set of veneers in one day?
Yes, our immediate veneers are fitted in one sitting. Porcelain/ceramic veneers are made by our Ceramists at the lab, so we need 2 appointments for those cases.
How long do dental veneers last?
Long term veneer survival varies from 12 months to 12 years. Generally, they last less well in patients who grind their teeth.
Can Veneers fall off?
Ceramic/porcelain veneers can fall off- eg. if a patient eats chocolate with them straight out of the fridge. Immediate composite veneers tend not to fall off, but the edges chip much more easily than the porcelain ones.
Why do I need dental veneers?
Veneers are not a necessity. They are to enhance the appearance and can improve your self-confidence by making your teeth straighter and white and by improving their shape.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of getting dental veneers?
Veneers can greatly improve the colour, shape, and straightness of your smile. Using no prep/immediate composite veneers means there is no grinding of the teeth required which is more healthy for your teeth than grinding them down for ceramic/porcelain veneers or crowns. However, this can mean that immediate/composite veneers look bulky as they are bonded on to the front surface of your teeth.
What do I need to prepare before going in for a consultation for a full set of veneers?
It is always helpful if you can send us some close-up shots of your smile using a smartphone.
Should I choose composite bonding or porcelain veneers?
This depends and for each patient the answer is different. Generally, we recommend immediate/composite veneers for younger patients because these are ‘no prep’- ie. there is no drilling of the original teeth needed.
How do I care for my veneers?
A high standard of oral hygiene at home (brushing AND flossing!) and regular visits to the hygienists. Immediate/composite veneers need to be polished by the dentist or hygienist every 6 months to keep them shiny.
Are there any foods I should avoid when I get my veneers on?
We advise staying away from too much red wine and a regular intake of strong coloured food which can cause temporary staining on immediate/composite veneers (they can always be polished clean again). This is not the case for ceramic/porcelain veneers which are very stain resistant and keep their lustre for many years.
Does it hurt to get dental veneers?
Generally, fitting veneers is a painless procedure although some patients can suffer sensitivity when ceramic/porcelain veneers are fitted because we have to drill the teeth to make space for them.
Can I view my veneers before putting them in?
We can show you photographs of the many cases we have completed so you get a feel for what they will look like. Check them out here.
What are some alternatives to veneers?
If your teeth are in good shape but crooked we prefer to straighten them using orthodontics because this is maintenance-free! If the teeth are badly broken and weak then generally we recommend ceramic crowns instead. Sometimes crowns are better in patients who grind a lot as veneers get chipped and broken by grinding.
Are veneers available on the NHS?
The NHS does not fund purely cosmetic treatment so veneers are not available.
Why should I choose you over other clinics when having my veneers?
We have many years of experience providing veneers for our patients. The cosmetic dentist who fits our veneers has concentrated his career on veneer treatments – he treats veneer cases every day. Practice makes perfect!
