A beautiful smile can make you look more attractive and boost your self-confidence – and while there are many ways to achieve perfectly straight and white teeth, one of the easiest and most popular options for a smile makeover in London is porcelain dental veneers.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made coverings for your teeth that are designed to be placed over the tooth to give the appearance of a perfect smile. Depending on your specific requirements, the veneers can be used to change the colour, size, shape and length of your teeth. We use this dental veneers made from high quality porcelain composite to correct a number of defects and irregularities including crooked, missing, gapped, crowded, overbite, chipped, protruding or discoloured teeth.
Highly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.
I have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.
My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.
I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.
Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!
Firstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.
I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.
The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!
Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.
Having dental veneers placed will require a few visits to the dental suites. This will start with a consultation to help you decide the right options for your requirements. During this appointment, your dental professional will also examine your overall oral hygiene and the condition of your teeth to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental veneers. In some cases, additional corrective treatments may be necessary before the veneers are placed.
Smile Design software may also be used to help you see what the finished results will look like before any actual work begins.
Once the dentist is happy with the health of your teeth, the next step will be to prepare the surfaces of your teeth to accept the veneers. Your teeth and gums will be numbed with local anaesthetic and a thin layer of the front surface of the teeth will be removed. Impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent to a lab where the veneers will be manufactured.
The final veneers normally take one to three weeks to be completed, so in the mean time, patients will have temporary veneers placed over their teeth to protect the exposed tooth and hide the work.
During the waiting period, your dentist may advise avoiding certain foods that could cause the temporary veneers to come off – like sticky sweets. Foods and drinks that are very hot or cold could also cause sensitivity.
When the final veneers are ready, you’ll return to the dentist to have them permanently bonded to your teeth. Before cementing the veneers in place, your dentist will hold each one up to your teeth to determine whether they are an appropriate colour and make any small adjustments to the shape so that they fit in your mouth just right.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!
After lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
Veneers are very thin and can be made from porcelain or resin composites. Both materials have their benefits – porcelain is better at resisting stains and reflects light in a similar manner to natural teeth. They usually last between five and ten years before needing to be replaced.
Meanwhile, composite veneers are much thinner, meaning that less of your natural tooth surface will need to be removed. However, they typically need to be replaced every two years or so.
There are also a number of specialist veneer brands. For example, Emax, Da Vinci and Durathin are three companies that manufacture high-end porcelain veneer products using patented materials. These veneers can be made much thinner and stronger than other types and can be fitted without having to ‘shave’ away any of the natural tooth – making the process faster, safer and less painful.

Veneer are thin durable shells made of tooth shaded materials that are attached to the outside of a tooth to improve its appearance.
If you have recolored or chipped teeth, you may be keen on veneer as they will conceal your current teeth. They are likewise a famous treatment for smile makeovers or for people who need their fantasy smile.
Ask your prosthodontist which alternative is best for you. If the required changes are minor and the teeth work properly, cosmetic bonding is a fitting choice. If teeth are divided, broken, dull, and additionally the patient grips or clenches their teeth, at that point porcelain veneer might be the favored choice.
Ordinarily, a veneer endures around 5-10 years. They don't need any special care other than brushing, flossing, and visits to the prosthodontist. If taken care properly, they can last any longer. Proficient cleanings like every 6 months and yearly tests are exceptionally prescribed.
Brushing multiple times every day for two minutes, flossing day by day, and wearing a bite guard during the evening are fundamental approaches to ensure the full protection veneer. It is likewise advantageous to abstain from eating hard food like almonds, or breaking shells with the front veneer.
The cost of porcelain veneers will vary depending on where you are having them done, and on what number of teeth.
You can eat most foods, yet every patient has an alternate bite. Accordingly, we prescribe eating gentler foods in the first couple of days until the patient becomes used to the new chomp position. Following a little while, there is no constraint except if your case has specific necessities. The most widely recognised nourishments to stay away from are ice, hard rolls, hard treat, caramel apples, hard nuts, pumpkin seeds, and popcorn.
