Why choose dental veneers on Harley Street?
Most commonly used for those with heavily stained teeth, veneers are also used for those with chipped teeth or to fix gaps within an individual’s smile. However, having veneers fitted is a big decision, as the process will in most cases involve the irreversible shaping and contouring of the original tooth to allow the veneer to be fitted.
If you do decide they are the right solution for you, there are a host of benefits to be had, including:
- Can enhance the look of your smile dramatically
- Look natural as they are colour matched to your own teeth
- They feel natural
- Don’t require any painful treatment
- They can prevent further tooth discolouration
- They can last over a decade
- Low maintenance upkeep

What are Veneers?
A veneer is a thin piece of plastic or porcelain, that is used to re-create the natural look of teeth, whilst ensuring strength and resilience are provided of equal measure to natural tooth enamel. We specialise in the detailed bespoke creation and fitting of veneers, matching them to the rest of your teeth’s colouring and fitting them with precision to the front surface of your teeth, improving the appearance of your smile with a completely natural-looking solution.

Frequently Asked Questions
This depends on what type of veneers you get. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for around 10-15 years. However, composite resin veneers typically last somewhere between 4-8 years.
To make your veneers last as long as possible, be sure to practice good oral hygiene by regularly brushing and flossing, invest in a mouthguard if you play rough sports or grind your teeth, and visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. If you’re looking to get veneers, Harley Street offer both porcelain and composite resin veneers.
Getting veneers put in is painless since you’re under local anaesthesia. After the final fitting, you might experience some sensitivity, but it’s normal and only usually lasts a few days during your recovery process.
This sensitivity is more common in complex cases involving multiple treatments simultaneously. The dentist fitting your veneers at Harley Street will go through what to expect after any treatment during the examination stage and ease any concerns you have.
This is often a big fear of many patients but in reality, nothing bad happens to the underlying tooth or teeth when receiving veneer treatment. Dentists usually only need to remove a thin piece of enamel to be able to reshape the tooth’s surface, but nothing too dramatic (usually around half a millimetre).
Apart from the small enamel removal, properly fitted veneers don’t negatively affect the teeth underneath. In fact, they may protect against decay by reducing exposed tooth material. For those with damaged or weakened teeth, veneers provide an extra layer of protection and help preserve the tooth’s structure, but neglecting proper care could lead to enamel damage and compromise both natural teeth and veneer lifespan.
When getting veneers at Harley Street, our dental experts will go through everything you need to know before so you know exactly what to expect.
Cleaning your veneers from Harley Street is easy – just treat them like your normal teeth. Brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, floss regularly, use antibacterial mouthwash, and limit acidic foods and sugary drinks. When cleaning under the veneers, use a soft toothbrush, fluoride rinse, and toothpaste, gently floss, and finish with mouthwash to prevent bacteria that can cause tooth decay.
