Dentist - abroad or London?

I'm considering cosmetic dental treatment for my wonky front teeth, but in Budapest to save money. I've been told there are Hungarian dentists that will do the treatment in London for you... having researched though, I'm not sure if this is true...
Has anyone accessed this service? Or travelled abroad? It would be wonderful to hear of anyone you recommend
Thank you!

I just had my teeth done by a local specialist dental clinic in Surrey. Why does it have to be London?

Look into seeing an orthodontist for your teeth, the current trend in cosmetic dentistry is to lean away from veneers and crowns which damage teeth and towards braces to straighten, then whitening if needed and maybe little bits of white filling here and there if anything needs evening out.

I’d never recommend a dentist abroad-you would probably have no protection indemnity wise if something went wrong and you can’t be sure of their cross infection procedures.

Yes plenty of brilliantly talented dentists outside London (if you’re not in London that is!)

London because I live here, but also happy to travel!

I think it will be expensive, hence looking at other options abroad but I obviously don't want to compromise on quality or after-care..

In London, the Gentle Dentist in Covent Garden is great and charges seem very reasonable.

I had exactly what Mocha describes - Invisalign braces, then whitening and the composite bonding for final cosmetic touches and my teeth look fab! Had them done in Surrey but had to have quite a
Lot of appointments so needed it to be quite near. I did look at the London Smile clinic as they were similar to the clinic I went to. You can upload some pictures to them and they can advise which one of their consultants to see first! I would stay in the uk personally...
