Is there such a thing as a quick fix from a cosmetic dentist?

A “quick fix” solution is not something a good cosmetic dentist would offer. Quality treatments take time, skill and care, and a rush job is unlikely to look natural or to be very durable. At our Harley Street dental clinic we believe in creating beautiful, natural-looking, long-lasting smiles for every patient. Using our unique combination of finely tuned skills, our cosmetic dental team will create the perfect smile every time.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening uses special bleaching gels to gently remove many of the everyday stains that build up on our teeth. It should only be carried out under the care of a skilled cosmetic dentist. Products available on the internet and the high street may claim to whiten teeth, but are unregulated so at best will be ineffective and at worst may be harmful.

The teeth whitening treatments offered at our Harley Street practice are reliable and safe. Whether you opt for power whitening here in the practice or for self-administered whitening treatment at home, you will remain under the supervision of your cosmetic dentist at all times.

Power whitening takes just an hour while home whitening takes about two weeks.


If you have teeth that are permanently stained, slightly crooked or gappy, mildly chipped or cracked, you should ask your cosmetic dentist about dental veneers. Veneers are much like a false fingernail for the teeth, being thin pieces of material placed over the front surfaces of the teeth to hide a range of minor imperfections. They may be made from porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material, and are a popular choice at our Harley Street clinic.
