Why is dentistry work so expensive

If you have to have dentistry work done that falls outside the usual bands covered by the NHS then you may be shocked to find out the price. You see lots of celebrities going round with perfect white teeth and often they have had veneers done. Chipped teeth, discolouration or damage can really make a big difference to how we look. Many people simply do not smile because they don’t like people to see their teeth. There is only a very limited number of procedures that can be done on the NHS and these are not really for cosmetic purposes. To achieve that perfect smile you may well decide to go down the route of veneers. Veneers can look amazing and totally transform someone’s appearance. They can give them back their confidence and help them feel happy with how they look but they do come with a price tag. On average each veneer usually costs around £600 to £1200 per tooth depending on what type of veneers you want. They can last anything from 10 – 20 years if looked after properly. This is a big chunk of money if you are wanting your whole mouth done but often people opt to just have the front 4 – 6 done instead. They can colour match the veneers with the rest of your teeth so that they don’t stand out.
