Cosmetic Dental Treatment

NHS dental treatment does not include cosmetic treatments that are not clinically necessary, such as teeth whitening or veneers. Cosmetic treatments like this are used to improve the appearance of your teeth and make them look more attractive.

Charges for any private treatment will be in addition to the charges for your NHS treatment. If you are interested in having any cosmetic dental treatments, please consult with your dentist about the cost.
