Explaining porcelain veneers

Don’t confuse porcelain veneers with dental crowns. Veneers do not require the removal of vital tooth structure, but rather, a minimum of 0.2mm of the tooth’s enamel.

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of strong, tooth-coloured shells specially crafted in a dental laboratory.

And like many cosmetic enhancements and restorations, porcelain veneers are a permanent feature that might require replacement (often after two decades).

What smile problems are porcelain veneers used for?

Porcelain veneers can correct and treat a wide variety of oral health concerns, hence why they are so beneficial and applicable for multiple different kinds of cases and patients.

Crooked Teeth

Veneers camouflage orthodontic issues like narrow teeth. Whilst teeth look straighter, the underlying teeth remain crooked.

Chipped Teeth

Veneer are one of the quickest ways to repair and restore chipped, cracked or broken teeth. Veneer application takes one appointment.


Veneers conceal discolouration, staining and even fluorosis. Plus, porcelain is a stain-resistant material to prevent staining further.


Veneers are used to close gaps between teeth. Very easily, veneers can fix a 4mm gap or larger.

Worn teeth

Veneers correct misshapen teeth that have been worn down by age or decay by restoring shape and length.

Uneven teeth

Veneers can make teeth appear correctly aligned and even, even for asymmetrical smiles.

Choosing a veneer dentist

With almost every cosmetic dentist in London offering veneers, it can be difficult to distinguish talent from a special interest.

Maida Smiles in W9 are trusted providers of porcelain veneers and offer an award-winning service that never compromises on quality.

With a practice that invests in its team and state-of-the-art technology, you’ll not only be pleased with the results, but how fast and easily we can achieve them too.

No drilling or injections

Achieving the beautiful, pearly white Hollywood smile has never been easier. 

Now, patients across London can have a new set of teeth within just three appointments spread over three weeks.

Without having to worry about thick, bulky veneers, our patients can rest assured that their veneers can be as thin as just 0.3 of a millimetre.

By using porcelain veneers, we also reduce any associated risks as they involve no, or minimal drilling of teeth and the tiniest fraction of enamel removal compared to crowns.

Porcelain veneer benefits

  • Remove or minimise the need for tooth shaving, drilling or injections.
  • Effective at producing straight, white and even results.
  • Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant but can discolour over time.
  • Porcelain veneers can straighten teeth instantly for minor crowding issues. However, they are not a replacement for orthodontics.
  • One limitation of porcelain veneers patients should be aware of, is that they are not easily repairable, say if they were chipped. Patients in this case might require a new, replacement veneer.

Porcelain is the longest-lasting

Porcelain veneers have been known to last twenty years or more.

But no matter the strength or type of material, veneers always hold the risk of falling off.

That’s why post-care and maintenance is essential for ensuring your veneers last.

Porcelain veneers can wear or come off when patients grind their teeth, knock them or have unhealthy habits.

Predictable, reliable, and incredible results

  • 5,968+ veneers placed
  • 20+ years of clinical experience
  • Over 500 veneer patients

Our dentists don’t just have a special interest in veneers; they’re regarded as talented artists who deliver impeccable results each time.

Our before and after veneer results frequently appear superior as our cosmetic dentists take the time to plan and consider the look of the entire smile.

The cost of porcelain veneers (London prices)

Here at Maida Smiles, we also offer 0% financing, which means patients can break down the cost of their treatments on a monthly basis and pay zero interest within 12 months. 

This means, with our veneers priced at £900, patients can pay as little as £75 per month – a highly competitive rate for veneer applications in the City.

Paying for veneers

One porcelain veneer:

  •  1 veneer = £900
  • £900 on dental finance over 12 months (0%) costs £75 per month.
  • When not using finance, you would be expected to pay 50% upfront (£450) 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 £450 – charged at £37.50 per month.

A full set of porcelain veneers (six teeth):

  • Each veneer charged at £900 x 6 = £5,400.
  • £5,400 on dental finance over 12 months (0%) would cost £450 per month.
  • By part paying, you can pay a £2,000 deposit (upfront) and use the 12 months interest-free to pay the remaining £3,400 – charged at £283.33 per month.

This means the total cost of your treatment after 12 months would be £5,400.00. If you were take out the loan today, you’d pay the first £450.00 upfront, and then 11 payments of £450.00 each month.
