Quick veneer guide:

How expensive are veneers in the UK?

The price of veneers relies on the number of veneers and the work required to place them. Often seen as affordable in the long run, veneers on average, can cost £1,000. Now available on 0% finance.

Are veneers free on the NHS?

As this system is cosmetic and often used only to enhance a patient’s appearance, veneers are not accessible on the NHS. Only highly isolated cases can they be considered a clinical need. Read more.

Do dentists recommend veneers?

As the treatment contributes to many oral and aesthetic benefits, it is often recommended by dental professionals. However, be clear that only reliable dentists will prescribe veneers that are fitted to the front exterior of the tooth, not as a cap!

Do teeth rebuild after veneers?

There is no need to have teeth shaved or altered. This method is used mainly for crown surgeries. Your original tooth remains unimpaired for veneer applications as some veneer procedures only require a tiny etching of tooth enamel.

How long do veneers last?

With the appropriate care and maintenance, veneers can last forever (up to 30 years).

Patients who qualify for veneers

Do any of the below apply to you?

  • I have tainted, discoloured or yellowish teeth
  • Suffer from fluorosis
  • I have bite difficulties such as overbites, underbites
  • Crooked and overcrowded teeth
  • I feel like too much gum is visible when I smile
  • My teeth have chips, cracks and breaks
  • I have gaps (diastema) between my teeth

If you have responded yes to any of the above, it would seem that porcelain or composite veneers might be a suitable solution for your oral state.

What’s the veneer procedure like?

Traditional veneer applications may include the altering of your existing tooth shape. However, the latest and more advanced versions of veneer applications use a wafer-thin shell applied to the front of your tooth.

The preparation only scrapes 0.2mm/0.5mm millimetres of enamel to make room for the veneer so it does not look bulky and can bond strongly. More.

Different Kinds Of Veneers

Due to advancements in modern dental technology, various brands and types of veneers have emerged.

  • PorcelainThe most powerful and long-lasting material, these are the most durable veneers. The only prep work they require is a small enamel scraping so that the veneer can attach successfully. Enamel removal is permanent, but only millimetres are often removed to make room for ultra-thin shells. Other porcelain brands require minimal to no prep work – ask your dentist about these.
  • CompositeA composite resin that is applied instantly to the tooth, composite veneers differ from porcelain. Applied in layers to the tooth and sculpted, they do not need any preparation work for the tooth.

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
