Should I see a cosmetic dentist?

Visiting a cosmetic dentist was once considered a luxury available only to celebrities and the super-rich. However, at Harley Street Dental Clinic we believe things have changed, and we welcome patients from all backgrounds who are interested in cosmetic dental treatment.

People who are unhappy with the way their smile looks tend to hide it away in public or even not smile at all. This can have a serious detrimental effect on your self-confidence, which is why at our Harley Street practice we believe an investment in your smile is one of the best decisions you can make.

A cosmetic dentist can offer a multitude of treatments big and small, to suit everyone’s needs. Here are just some of the cosmetic procedures available at our Harley Street practice:

Porcelain veneers

Very thin shells of porcelain are placed over the front surfaces of your tooth or teeth to improve their appearance, masking permanent discolouration and adding extra strength to teeth with small chips or cracks. Veneers can improve the appearance of slightly gappy or crooked teeth.

Gum lift

Excess gum tissue is often called a gummy smile. In a gum lift, this extra tissue is painlessly removed, giving a more even, more attractive gum line.

Teeth whitening

Your cosmetic dentist uses special dental bleaching gel to gently remove everyday stains – such as those caused by red wine, coffee or smoking – from the teeth, leaving them several shades brighter.

White fillings

More accurately, tooth-coloured fillings. Your cosmetic dentist can remove old metal fillings and replace them with composite ones that closely match your natural tooth colour.
