Simple solutions

You’re not the only person in the world ashamed of your teeth or self-conscious about “bad teeth.” Whether your teeth are crooked, pointed, discoloured, stained, or even heavily decayed, something can be done.

Dentistry is not just limited to filling cavities and dental cleans. We can implement cosmetic methods to transform a smile that has fallen into disarray and can quickly repair any underlying damage to keep your oral structure sound and healthy.

We can treat bad teeth in multiple ways. For example, we can use a combination of cosmetic treatments like bonding and whitening to improve your smile, or we can use treatments like veneers, which target several problems at once, from overcrowding to gapped teeth.

If you’re worried about the extent of the work, don’t be. Modern cosmetic dentistry is fast and minimally invasive, so patients can often leave our clinic within one appointment without major surgeries or painful treatments.

Below, we’ll walk you through common bad teeth problems and their recommended treatments and costs. All cosmetic treatments are available on dental finance, 0% over 12 months.

Your guide to bad teeth

Bad teeth have no single definition, it’s rather a perception. For example, if I have crooked teeth or yellow, I might assume they’re bad teeth. But the term is extended to patients who feel embarrassed about parts of their smile, or if their teeth impact their chewing or speech.

Bad teeth, more commonly refer to teeth affected by dental decay and gum disease, as these two conditions can greatly impact how the teeth function and how they look. 

Bad or rotten teeth can have several negative effects of the body and can increase your risk of developing oral infections. Bad oral health can also cause much wider problems throughout the body, with some studies pointing to connections between poor oral hygiene and heart disease, diabetes, dementia and cancer.

  • Cavities and tooth decay
  • Black teeth, cracks, holes and fracture lines
  • Sticky film bacteria, plaque and tartar
  • Grey, black or brown spots or stains on teeth
  • Bad breath and unpleasant taste
  • Dental abscesses and wobbly teeth
  • Receding gums and black triangle pockets

It’s a scary thought thinking you’ll have to have your teeth extracted, or you’ll lose your teeth altogether, which might even prevent you from visiting a dentist. However, that’s the worst case scenario, and even if this does happen, we have modern solutions to replace a full mouth of missing teeth.

Sometimes bad teeth happen because of genetics, as some patients might be born with proportions that make maintaining a smile easy. And while cosmetic dentistry is incredible for solving many bad teeth problems, it will only work when in conjunction with restorative dental treatments that can ensure the underlying gums and bone are healthy enough to withstand your treatment.

Before we begin treating your bad teeth we will always look into the root cause, so we can prevent further decay and infection to ensure your teeth are healthy and long-lasting. Plus, it will be essential to prevent your restoration from failing.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

It was my first time in the clinic and I had a great experience. The staff is very friendly. Samantha was very helpful with booking the appointment and fast replied to my messages. I had an appointment with Dr. Ines do Carmo. She is lovely. She explained all the treatment and the best option for my case. Cintia was helping Dr. Ines with the appointment. Cintia is very friendly. Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
