How a cosmetic dentist can make over your smile

A cosmetic dentist has many ways of helping patients who are unhappy with their smile. At Harley Street Dental Clinic we have a leading team of dental specialists who can correct a wide spectrum of smile problems – from simple tooth whitening to a full-mouth makeover.

Here are just some of the options available from the cosmetic dentists at our Harley Street clinic:

Teeth whitening

When carried out by a cosmetic dentist, teeth whitening is a safe, predictable and fast way to boost the appearance of your smile. Using special dental bleaching gel, everyday stains such as those cause by tea, coffee or smoking are gently removed from your teeth, leaving them brighter and whiter. This can be carried out at home or here in the comfort of our Harley Street practice.


Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain affixed to the front surfaces of the front teeth to improve their appearance. They can cover permanent discolouration or staining, small chips, and minor issues with spacing or tooth alignment. You will need at least two appointments at our Harley Street clinic for your cosmetic dentist to create and fit your veneers, which will look both beautiful and natural.

Gum lift

If you have a gummy smile – too much gum tissue on show when you smile – a gum lift is a fast and effective way for your dentist to correct this. Depending on the severity of your condition, your dentist may be able to use a laser to remove excess gum tissue, or you may require surgery.
