No preparation or teeth trimming before application | Good value for money | Semi-permanent but can be safely removed | Only two appointments required
Not as long-lasting (still often 20 years+) | Not always as suitable to hide chips or other tooth damage
As the cosmetic dental industry continues to improve and adapt there is an increasing range of treatments available to fix discoloured, stained, crooked, worn and narrow smiles rapidly and easily.
At the Bespoke Smile, we help our patients find the perfect treatment so they can carry on with their lives, free from the smile issues that might be holding them back.
The most common complaints we hear from our patients often involve narrow arches in the mouth, discolouration and misaligned bites.
Our skilled and experienced team can provide fast and effective solutions using veneers to treat these issues comfortably and without the use of drilling.
Lumineers are a unique, ultra-thin variation of veneers. At approximately 0.2mm, the custom-made shells slip onto the problem teeth and will leave you with the straight, sparkling white smile you crave.
The shells are translucent and the shade can be adjusted depending on your needs, making it easy to customise your final look. The entire procedure requires no drilling or anaesthetic and is also often reported by our patients as painless.
Traditional veneers are made of porcelain and it usually takes longer to prep the teeth for application.
The process of getting Lumineers takes around two visits.
Although this can vary dependent on the work you needed to be done prior to the fitting, it is generally a quicker option than traditional veneers.
Lumineers are a more rare option and the brand is only offered by some dentists. They are manufactured by DenMat dental laboratory and they are thinner, cheaper and faster to apply.
Since the procedure is an intricate one, it is vital that you choose a practice where the clinicians are experienced, qualified and skilled.
Dr Sam Jethwa is a highly recommended cosmetic dentist, who specialises in veneer placements and will be able to advise you on the type of brand and style that is most suitable to correct your oral issue.illed.
Having won multiple awards for his dentistry, he has treated a wide variety of celebrity clients including Cheryl Hole from Ru Paul’s drag show and Gillian Taylforth for her new sets of veneers. This attests to the unmatchable quality we offer.

What teeth preparation is involved?
For straightforward cases where only a limited number of teeth require a veneer, you can complete the Lumineer treatment in as little as two appointments.
If you have additional oral issues that need to be addressed then you may require an extra appointment.
We will carry out a thorough assessment of your smile and discuss your goals and desires for your teeth.
We can then make an impression and send your mould to the studio for your veneers to be manufactured.
At this stage, we can also decide on your chosen shade for your teeth.

Since this treatment requires no invasive drilling it provides little inconvenience for our patients.
We provide alternative veneers options alongside the pioneering approach of Lumineers and encourage you to book a free consultation appointment before deciding which option is best for you.
