Not 100% Happy
With Your Smile?

We all have our teeth hang-ups, and that’s okay! But when these hang-ups have you hiding your smile, that’s when you know it’s time to get it sorted. Whether your teeth are crooked, yellow, or misshapen, our cosmetic dentistry treatments will help you get the smile makeover you’ve always dreamed of and put a little pep in your step.

Frequently asked questions

Think of veneers like false nails for your teeth. They hide your underlying teeth to disguise any misalignment, discolouration, or chipping. Porcelain veneers are often combined with teeth whitening and/or teeth straightening to achieve a stunning smile makeover.

Veneers can be made out of porcelain or composite resin (a bit like

composite bonding). At our Ealing clinic in London, we use porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers generally last around 15 years before they chip or stain and need replacing. You, of course, need to take good care of them and avoid biting your nails, pens, keys, beer bottles etc. You should also brush your teeth twice daily and clean interdentally at least once a day. Finally, you’ll need regular hygienist visits.

It depends! When done correctly and in the right situation, cosmetic dentists can apply veneers without drilling your tooth enamel. In some situations, we may need to remove fractions of a millimetre. 

 

If your teeth are too crooked, our experienced dentists will advise straightening your teeth first to ensure your veneers are minimally invasive. Having trained under the UK’s leading veneers specialists, you’re in safe hands with our dentists.

We would recommend professional teeth whitening with well-fitting, custom-made trays that you can use again and again from the comfort of your own home (don’t worry, we’ll show you how!). Our friendly cosmetic dentists will recommend the best peroxide-based gel for your teeth after a comprehensive oral health check.

Teeth whitening treatment results will depend from person to person. The darker your starting point, the longer it takes. The whiter you want them, the longer it takes. Most patients will get amazing teeth whitening results within 2-3 Weeks.

Teeth whitening can last as long as 2 years or as little as 6 months. It depends on your

diet, hygiene, and, more importantly, how white you would like your teeth to be.

We would recommend teeth whitening top-ups every 6-12 months. With your custom-made trays, your maintenance cost is as little as £30 for a tube of professional strength prescription gel. Of course,you should also avoid foods that stain and acidic foods that can damage your white enamel.

Absolutely! When administered professionally by trained cosmetic dentists like those at our Ealing clinic in London, teeth whitening is the safest, cheapest, quickest, and least invasive way of sprucing up those pearly whites!

Yes! Dr Sahil at Dickens Yard Dental in Ealing is an Invisalign® Elite provider, having straightened 100s of smiles with Invisalign® clear aligners. These are more comfortable and discreet than traditional metal train track braces and can give you a straighter smile in a matter of months.

Aside from the obvious boost in confidence, straighter teeth are easier to clean and less likely to wear down excessively. This means that you’re more likely to keep your teeth for life!

Most patients will invest around £3500 to straighten their teeth with Invisalign®. Treatments range from £2,600-£4,500.

We know you can’t wait to flash your new, perfectly straight smile. You won’t have to wait long with our Invisalign® teeth straightening treatment. With this safe and efficient technique, you could have straighter teeth in as little as 4 months!

In a word, no. As long as your teeth are healthy, we can align them to give you the smile that you’ve always wanted.

Composite resin is hand sculpted over crooked, chipped, or misshapen teeth to give you a straighter, whiter, more symmetrical smile. This is then highly polished to match your natural teeth.

Generally, composite bonding lasts 4-5 years before it needs replacing due to staining or chipping. You will need regular polishing to maintain the shine, good home care, and regular hygienist visits.

If done correctly and in the right situations, composite bonding

often involves no drilling or anaesthetic. At Dickens Yard Dental, we’ve carried out countless composite bonding treatments, ensuring a minimally invasive approach that causes virtually no damage to your teeth.

The composite bonding resin is softer than your natural teeth, so you should avoid biting

your nails, pens, keys, beer bottles etc. You should also brush twice daily and clean interdentally at least once a day. Finally, you’ll need regular hygienist visits and annual polishing with the dentist.

“I was really unhappy about my teeth when I came to see Sahil to see if he could make my smile nicer and cleaner. He covered all the details of what he could do and the cost and the time. It’s been a long haul but it’s been worth every penny that I’ve spent, I am so happy with my teeth and smile and I would recommend Sahil anytime to have your teeth done.”

Rizwan Rizvi

Had an amazing experience at Dickens Yard Dental. Walked in without an appointment and was seen immediately. The dentist was fantastic, extremely thorough, explaining what he was doing at each step, and then providing full guidance on how to manage it myself. I cannot recommend this dental practise enough if you live in and around Ealing.
