What is the perfect smile?
The ideal smile is a personal perception. Our job is to design your best smile for you. Whether that is a discreet, natural looking smile or a dazzling white celebrity smile or something in between, our leading dentists can make this happen.
There are certain features that make all smiles look good:
1. Top teeth are often more important than bottom teeth. In fact we don’t t really tend to see much of the bottom teeth at all.
2. The size of the teeth. The front teeth should be the largest and the teeth either side of them gradually diminishing in size from front to back.
3. Tooth Shade and Colour. Finding a shade of "white" that works for you is important. One method is to match teeth with the whites of the eyes.
4. Tooth texture and lustre. Finding the correct texture and lustre that works for you is important. Smooth, glossy smiles are said to be more Hollywood, and teeth with texture and less gloss are thought to be more natural looking.
5. Straight teeth. Straightness or the evenness of the teeth is another important aspect of any smile. In most cases, the straighter the better.
6. Healthy Gums. The gum colour and health form the background to the teeth and are an important facet of a smile
7. Lips . The shape, symmetry and thickness of your lips form the curtain to the teeth and gums, so are also an important facet of a smile
According to Wikipedia , ’ A smile seems to have a favorable influence upon others and makes one likeable and more approachable’ so when creating a smile our aim is to be congruent with our mission statement Changing Lives ~Exceeding Expectations.
The final smile can be said to be an artistic creation. All art is subjective and like all art the beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
To create your ideal smile we go through a process of understanding you as a person , your character, and your personality. We also want to understand in detail the desired result that you are looking for. We do this by way of a two fold discovery consultation: one with the treatment co-ordinator and the other with the dentist. We often spend about 1-2 hours with you during these two important steps.
Simply copying a specific look of another smile doesn’t always result in a compatible resulting smile for you. Often many patients bring in photographs and magazine cuttings to explain the type of smiles that they would like to obtain. This is a great place to start the discussion. We then plan to incorporate the features you like into your own smile but in a way that suits you.
We combine innovation, aesthetic principals, minimally invasive concepts and our passion for great results when doing this type of work. This is how we are successful in achieving your new smile.
It is vital and important that you are also involved in the artistic planning. We ensure you have full control; so on many treatment options you are able to preview your smile.This feedback is invaluable in creating a smile that you desire.

I live in London so it was no problem visiting them at Harley Street, I was a bit nervous when I walked in but it all went fine and I now have no more gaps in my teeth, many thanks

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!

Answer a few simple questions and you can begin your journey on possibly having veneers.
Whiter brighter teeth
Veneers are thin, ceramic shells designed to give you a natural smile. Ultrathin, Durathin and Lumineers are just a few of the brands we provide. Normally achieved in two appointments.
Composite / Immediate Veneers
Composite veneers cost less than other veneers and require little or no tooth preparation at all. Have your veneers fitted in as little as one appointment.

Our free no obligation Initial Consultation will be with our dentist and/or our Treatment Coordinators. The suitability of options discussed will ultimately be dependent upon your clinical assessment with a dentist at the practice.
