Composite Veneers
- 60% less expensive

Maida Smiles Clinic has a large team of cosmetic dentists.

Composite veneers, at times, can be the favoured solution for patients, who might otherwise fear the permanency of cosmetic dentistry.

Composite veneers do not last forever. Patients can live with the results of their smile makeover for a few years before upgrading to longer-lasting porcelain veneers, or having the composite resin material re-applied.

What are composite veneers?

  • No drilling, no needs, no shaving, no tooth removal (non-invasive)
  • No life-long commitment
  • Pain-free, same-day treatment

Using a composite resin material, these types of veneers successfully alter the tooth’s colour, shape, and size. And what you might not know about composite veneers is that our dentists, like Dr Harrison can apply them directly to your tooth within just one visit.

Plus, we will not need to shave down any vital tooth structure or tissue like conventional veneers.

Make your dream smile a reality!

full mouth composite veneers offer

Composite veneers provide coverage for the entire tooth and give the appearance of a wider, whiter and more symmetrical smile. But which type of veneer is better and how do they differ?

Porcelain veneers (Permanent)

  • Can last a minimum of 10 years (some porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years with the right care and maintenance).
  • Requires the slight removal of tooth enamel (up to 0.5mm).
  • Multiple tooth shade options.
  • Stain-resistasnt with possible discolouration over time.
  • Less likely to break – but not easily repaired, if at all.
  • Takes three appointments to be applied (inc. consultation).

Composite veneers (Non Permanent)

  • Has an average lifespan of around five years – with some lasting up to seven years.
  • Referred to as no-prep veneers and require no tissue removal.
  • Four shades of white to choose from.
  • Are resistant to staining but not as well as porcelain veneers.
  • Susceptible to some chips – but easily repaired.
  • Takes just one visit to the dental clinic to apply.

Same-day veneers

Composite veneers are hailed as the non-prep alternative to traditional veneer makeovers.

Composite veneers, over the years, have become popular as they allow patients to makeover their smile, but not permanently, and not in a way that will limit any other cosmetic procedures in the future.

For example, once you take the jump and opt for porcelain veneers, you choose them for life.

To discover which type of veneer might be right for you – book a free consultation with our trained and experienced treatment co-ordinator, who can assess your current oral state and show you what kind of cosmetic dentistry is possible.

Our treatment co-ordinator Cintia explains the importance of consultation before booking an appointment.

Do you qualify for composite veneers?

Not every patient is ready to have composite veneers placed instantly.

To be a successful same-day patient, the current conditions need to be met with your existing smile, such as:

  • Severely crowded teeth. However, we can fix or reshape small misalignments with composite veneers.
  • Gums must be in a healthy condition – no gum disease!
  • Have gaps larger than 6mm (diastema).
  • No substantial damage to teeth.

Patients undergoing this procedure must be 18 and have had a check-up within the past six months.

The composite veneer procedure

Importantly, composite veneers are faster, easier to apply and pain-free. For example, patients who have just finished orthodontic treatment would be ideal patients.

To get your teeth ready for the resin material, our cosmetic dentist, likely Dr Harrison, will clean your teeth and then apply a gel that works to roughen the surface of the tooth for a stronger, better bond.

The composite resin material is then painted on like liquid, or applied in a putty-like state and is shaped and sculpted directly onto the tooth.

To finish your new smile, Dr Harrison, using a special curing light will harden the composite, securing it into place. We will then finish by cleaning your teeth and giving them a polish.

Benefits of Composite Veneers

Dental veneers have several advantages:

  • Non-prep and non-permanent
  • Cheaper alternative to porcelain veneers (more affordable)
  • Significantly improves the look, shape and brightness of a smile
  • Prepared chairside – incredible results in just one appointment
  • Non-invasive dentistry – no needles!
  • Can be applied to a certain number of teeth
  • Reduces gaps in the mouth and conceals every day smile issues

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 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.

Paying for veneers

One composite veneer:

  •  1 veneer = £750
  • £750 on dental finance over 12 months (0%) costs £62.50 per month.
  • When not using finance, you would be expected to pay 50% upfront (£375) and the remaining 50% upon completion. 
  • By parting paying, patients can pay a 50% deposit upfront and use the 12 months interest-free pay the remaining £375 – charged at £31.25 per month.

A full mouth of composite veneers (six teeth):

  • Each veneer charged at £750 x 6 = £4,500.
  • £4,500 on dental finance over 12 months (0%) would cost £375.00 per month.
  • By part paying, you can pay a £2,250 deposit (upfront) and use the 12 months interest-free to pay the remaining £3,400 – charged at £187.50 per month.
A loan of £750.00 over 12 months would cost you £62.50 per month at a representative 0.0% APR. The total amount of credit would be £750.00, to which we would add £0.00 (0.0% p.a.). This means the total cost of your treatment after 12 months would be £750.00. If you were to take out the loan today, you’d pay the first £62.50 upfront, and then 11 payments of £62.50 each month.

We treat more than 30 veneer patients a month

Whether you need a veneer placed on a single tooth or multiple, the Maida Smiles cosmetic team can help ensure your veneers blend flawlessly with existing teeth.
