Are Dental Veneers available on the NHS?


Find UK Dentists »

NHS treatment is only available if your veneers are needed for medical reasons. These are reasons such as pain caused by chipped or damaged teeth (particularly where the nerve is affected) or discomfort because of crowded teeth.

If your veneers are to correct cosmetic issues such as tooth staining, gaps between teeth, overlapping teeth or teeth that are too small or large you will need to pay for these privately.

The NHS has 3 different set prices for dental procedures and if they do agree that you have a medical need for dental veneers it will be a band 3 procedure, which is the most expensive kind. You will pay a set price of £198, which is still considerably cheaper than having the veneers fitted privately.
