Maida Smiles clinic is often the go-to place for patients in the West London area looking to enhance their smiles with dental veneers.
Porcelain veneers are the highest grade of veneers available in today’s dentistry and are praised for how well they mimic natural teeth and how long they last. Patients usually require six veneers to improve their social smile.
Composite veneers are non-permanent applications that require no drilling, shaving or tooth removal of any kind. The material is applied to the tooth in layers using a composite resin to achieve the desired shape and length.
We offer 12 months dental finance with no additional cost of credit.
Using our finance option, patients can break down the cost of the veneer payments in monthly instalments.
Patients will also be pleased to know that we offer in-practice memberships and payment plans.
Plus, we’re accepted by many health insurance providers.
