At Mona Lisa Smiles in Barnet, our main focus is to prevent our patients getting tooth decay and gum disease.

To maintain optimal dental health, it’s vital to adhere to a routine of regular brushing and flossing, complemented by annual dental check-ups for adults and biannual visits for children up to 18 years old.

Regular dental exams are indispensable for preserving the health of your teeth and gums. During each check-up, we carefully assess your oral condition, aiming to identify and address any issues at their earliest stages. Our comprehensive examination includes monitoring tooth wear and erosion, evaluating gum health, and providing guidance on reducing sugar intake in your diet. Additionally, we maintain X-ray records to track changes over time and boast a team of dedicated hygienists who offer expert cleaning and flossing advice.

Crucially, we also screen for hidden issues that may not manifest noticeable symptoms. Many dental problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer, can progress significantly before becoming visible or causing discomfort.

Bear in mind: early detection, coupled with expert advice and timely treatment, can help prevent the need for extensive dental procedures and minimise associated costs in the future.


Thanks to advancements in dentistry, we no longer depend on unattractive metals for tooth fillings. Instead, we utilise high-density porcelain blended with composite resin, which closely replicates the appearance, texture, and function of natural teeth. These modern materials adhere directly to the remaining tooth surface using adhesive technology, preserving more of the original tooth structure.

If you’re considering replacing old metal fillings, Mona Lisa Smiles offers comprehensive assistance. For extensive or intricate restorations, we may recommend options such as inlays, onlays, or crowns to restore both functionality and aesthetics.


White fillings (or natural-coloured fillings)

We firmly believe that white cosmetic fillings not only enhance aesthetics but also promote better oral health compared to traditional mercury-based amalgam fillings. Many individuals prefer white fillings as they blend seamlessly with natural teeth, eliminating the concern of visible silver fillings when smiling or laughing, thus boosting confidence in appearance.

Our white fillings are meticulously sculpted and colour-matched to seamlessly bond with your enamel, providing a natural look while effectively preventing decay.

Typically composed of glass particles, porcelain, synthetic resin, and a setting agent, white fillings offer durability and aesthetic appeal. Additionally, newer materials with properties akin to silver amalgam are gaining popularity for their success in dental restorations.

The longevity of white fillings varies based on their location in the mouth and the force exerted when biting. In cases where fillings may not suffice, alternatives such as inlays, onlays, or crowns are recommended for large cavities. Explore our options for Cosmetic Fillings, Inlays, or Onlays to address your specific needs.

Adhesive dentistry technology has revolutionised dental procedures, enabling the seamless bonding of white fillings to the tooth structure. This minimally invasive approach preserves more natural tooth structure, offering significant advantages to patients.
