Here at Finsbury Dental Care, our surgeons have extensive experience in restoring smiles with veneer techniques where appropriate. We offer both composite and porcelain veneers at our dental practice in London and are confident that we can help to reinstate your smile and self-confidence.
WHY MIGHT YOU NEED DENTAL VENEERS IN LONDON?
Do you feel embarrassed about your smile? Are you tight-lipped on photos to hide your teeth? You’re not alone.
At Finsbury Dental Care, we provide dental veneers in London to treat a range of cosmetic concerns – including chipped, broken, discoloured, or gapped teeth – giving you a brighter smile.
And the best bit? The process is not painful and can restore your smile in a way that still looks natural.
In the case of a broken or chipped tooth, we can place one of our veneers over the top of it with no problem as a result of our high-quality composite veneers in London. However, most patients get between 6-8 veneers to create a gorgeous, symmetrical smile.
If your teeth are stained, and no amount of whitening can fix them, our porcelain veneers in London are an excellent choice. They can restore the brightness of even the most severely discoloured teeth. And unlike composite resins, porcelain doesn’t stain or fade easily – so will look great for years to come.
Though not a permanent solution, dental veneers can last for more than a decade which makes them a fantastic quick fix for all the dental imperfections mentioned above.
If your self-esteem or confidence has taken a knock because of your teeth, then dental veneers in London could be the perfect solution for you.
WHAT IS A VENEER?
A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth to restore it cosmetically or to protect a damaged one.
Veneers are made from either composite or porcelain.
Composite veneers are built over the tooth’s surface free-hand in the dental chair, while our porcelain veneers in London are made in a lab and then bonded to the teeth during the second visit.
Here at Finsbury Dental Care, we have a number of dentists in London who are trained to the highest standards in placing veneers. So, why not come in for a consultation to see how we can help you?
WHAT ARE COMPOSITE VENEERS?
When it comes to restoring the appearance of a tooth quickly and comfortably, composite veneers in London are one of the best options. This minimally invasive procedure involves bonding resin to the surface of the tooth, which can cover the whole tooth to disguise discolouration, or simply fill in small cracks or correct chips to restore the original tooth shape.
These cosmetic restorations are achieved using a composite resin specially designed for dental use, which is also found in other procedures such as tooth fillings. Your dentist will match the colour of the composite to the shade of your natural teeth, so your veneers will blend right in.
The straightforward procedure involves your dentist lightly etching the tooth to improve adhesion, then applying layers of composite resin and sculpting it to form the desired look. After hardening the composite veneer and bonding it to the tooth via light curing, your dentist will then polish the surface to a natural-looking shine.
This entire process of applying direct composite veneers in London can be done in a single appointment with minimal discomfort, making it a convenient choice for those with busy lives who are looking for fast results. You could benefit from a restored smile in just one day!
AFFORDABLE DENTAL VENEERS IN LONDON
Though not a permanent solution, dental veneers can last for more than a decade which not only makes them a fantastic quick fix for all the dental imperfections mentioned above, but also a great investment.
Here at Finsbury Dental, we’re committed to being affordable and accessible to all, which is why we make all of our fees completely transparent, as well as offering a range of finance options.

VENEERS LONDON – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is an ideal candidate for veneers?
Veneers are thin, durable shells that are applied to natural teeth to enhance their appearance. They are a fantastic cosmetic dental treatment option for many people, but the question is – are they right for you?
Both versatile and natural-looking, dental veneers are ideal for a wide range of aesthetic smile complaints and can correct several issues at once, including:
- Discoloured teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Superficially cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Uneven teeth
But, unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate – and some conditions (i.e. jaw clenching or teeth grinding, gum disease, crossbite or underbite, structural tooth damage, severe tooth crowding, poor oral health) can rule out the procedure.
If any of the above ring true with you, it’s worth arranging an appointment with your dentist to determine the best cosmetic treatment for you. It may just be that you need to wear a guard to protect your veneers from damage.
To find out whether you’re a suitable candidate for veneers in London or to discuss your requirements in more detail, call the team at Finsbury Dental Care on 020 7638 6556.
How long do veneers last?
With the right care and attention – i.e. regular brushing, flossing and routine check-ups with your dentist – veneers can last a lifetime.
Aside from the state of your teeth before getting a veneer, several factors can affect the longevity of dental veneers, such as:
- Veneer material – typically, porcelain veneers cost more and last longer than composite veneers.
- Dental hygiene – good oral hygiene (e.g. dental check-ups and professional cleaning twice a year) is crucial for prolonging the lifespan of veneers.
- Tooth grinding – if you grind your teeth at night, wear a mouthguard to avoid putting excessive pressure on your veneers.
- Using your teeth as tools – if you can’t open something with your hands or other tools, don’t use your teeth as it will reduce the lifespan of your veneers.
- Eating food – to maximise the longevity of your dental veneers, avoid biting down on foods like nuts, hard candies or ice as this could cause damage.
Do you have any tips for caring for veneers?
Contrary to popular belief, veneers require no specialised aftercare or maintenance, and you can treat them like you would your natural teeth.
Simple things like brushing twice a day for at least two minutes, flossing daily and wearing a guard at night – are great ways to protect porcelain and composite veneers.
It’s also a sensible idea to avoid eating hard, crunchy foods (i.e. almonds, sticky toffees, popcorn, etc.) and attend dental appointments every six months. We recommend an annual examination to check your veneers and reassess your bite too.

Why should I choose Finsbury Dental Care for veneers?
Are you looking to transform your smile with porcelain veneers or composite veneers? Even though it’s one of the least invasive cosmetic dental procedures, finding an experienced dentist is key.
As a private dental clinic in London, preventative dentistry is at the heart of everything we do here at Finsbury Dental Care, and our no.1 aim is to help patients achieve a healthy mouth and smile for life.
We have been providing veneers in London for more than 20 years, and our surgeons utilise only the most innovative veneer techniques at our practice to restore smiles.

We are on hand from 8.30-6.00 pm Monday to Thursday, and 8.30-4.00 pm on Friday.
Do veneers hurt?
At Finsbury Dental Care, our dentists administer anaesthetic to numb your mouth, so you shouldn’t feel any pain when getting veneers in London.
Patients who have 2-4 veneers experience little to no pain immediately after the procedure. Those who have 8 or more may feel some mild soreness in the gums and possibly the jaw – but this level of discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications.
How much does it cost to get veneers in London?
Several factors determine the price of veneers in London, including:
- The material used (i.e. porcelain or composite resin)
- The number of veneers required
- Your oral health
- The dental practice
As with most of the other cosmetic dental treatments we offer, it depends on the amount of preliminary work required to provide the optimal foundation for veneers to be applied.
Our prices also vary depending on the complexity of the smile design – with some requiring more intricate work than others. And to ensure that your veneers last as long as possible – ensuring maximum value for money – we need to create a harmonious and stable bite.

Are veneers worth it?
Yes! Having specialised in veneers in London for more than 20 years, we may be biased – but we think that they’re a fantastic solution for correcting dental imperfections and giving people a much-needed confidence boost.
When applied carefully by a skilled dentist, veneers can:
- Whiten your smile – ideal if your teeth are stained from smoking, drinking too much caffeine, or eating high pigmented foods.
- Fix minor cosmetic problems – whether it be chips, cracks, gaps or discolouration.
- Replace damaged enamel – once damaged, enamel doesn’t always grow back but veneers are great for teeth with enamel abrasion or erosion.
Although the benefits of veneers are plentiful, we understand that they don’t come without some drawbacks.
Once you get a veneer, there’s no going back. The enamel on your teeth will need to be filed down by the dentist so the veneer can be affixed. Therefore, committing to the procedure is a lifetime decision and one that shouldn’t be made lightly.
The cost of veneers in London is another thing that puts patients off. However, if you can afford cosmetic dental treatment, it’ll be well worth it to get your dream smile.
Should I choose porcelain or composite veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are made from ceramics and attached to the front of the teeth. They give you a white, gorgeous smile and are perfect if your teeth are cracked or discoloured.
Composite veneers are made from resin and shaped and bonded to the tooth to enhance its appearance. Often, composite veneers fill small gaps and broken teeth.
If you’re looking for a permanent solution for veneers in London, we recommend porcelain veneers as they can last up to 15 years, whereas composites last 7 years on average.
Alternatively, composite veneers tend to be more affordable than their porcelain counterparts and require a lot less prep work.
