How much do veneers cost (UK)?

We price our veneers from £1,000. For some, this is initially pricey. However, it can be cost-effective in the long term. It is important to bear in mind that the price of veneers also varies, this is because it depends on the amount of work required to position them and the number you wish to have placed.

Can I get veneers on the NHS?

Unfortunately no. The NHS will cover the cost if they have a clinical need. However, as this often is not the case, these placements are rare. See more.

Do dentists recommend veneers?

The treatment not only improves the mouth’s appearance but encourages oral health and hygiene benefits, which will keep the mouth intact and healthy. However, be wary of dentists recommending crowns and marketing them as veneers. The most recommended veneer is porcelain.

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

The procedure is permanent and irreversible. This is because a slight etching of enamel will need to be carried out to ensure the veneer is secure and natural-looking. Often, the scrapings are only a fraction of a millimetre and will not alter the shape or length of your tooth.

How long do veneers last?

With the appropriate care and maintenance, veneers can last longer than fifteen years.

Do veneers last forever?

Following advised care and hygiene, veneers can last fifteen years or more.

Do you qualify for the treatment?

Do you experience or relate to any of the below?

  • I have tainted, discoloured or yellowish teeth
  • Suffer from fluorosis
  • Bite difficulties such as overbites, underbites
  • I have 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

Porcelain veneers might be the perfect solution to instantly adjust and refresh your smile if you have any of the above oral states.

What’s the veneer process like?

Old, traditional veneer applications may include altering your natural tooth shape.

However, the most advanced and newly preferred versions of veneer applications use a super-thin shell installed over the front surface of the tooth (like a false nail, only stronger).

The preparation will only remove 0.2mm/0.5mm millimetres of enamel to make room for the veneer – this will prevent it from appearing thick-looking and ensure the veneer is stable. More.

The procedure is widely considered as pain-free, a local anaesthetic might be used to numb the general area. Oral sedation can be used if required, otherwise, this is a normal, fast and comfortable procedure.

Minimal discomfort is also reported following the treatment. The recovery process is relatively simple – it should take around two weeks to adjust to your veneers.

Porcelain vs composite

Due to developments in modern dental technology, several brands and types of veneers have emerged.

  • PorcelainThe most robust and durable material. The only prep work required is a small scraping of enamel. Often, only millimetres are displaced to make room for the porcelain shells. However, other porcelain brands are even less evasive as they require little to no prep work – ask your dentist about these.
  • CompositeA composite resin material is applied directly to the tooth—these veneers differ from porcelain. Applied instead in layers, the resin is sculpted on the tooth and requires zero preparation.

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.
