So, when I was 11, I got six dental veneers fitted due to fluorosis which left me with little enamel and incredibly damaged teeth for someone so young. Now, this was my parents choice, not mine as they were told by our dentist at the time that there was no other treatment available. This cost my parents upwards of £3,000.
I've had the veneers for nearly nine years now and I'm aware that they will need to be replaced in the next decade or sooner.
Is there any kind of NHS help I could get. The reasons for the veneers weren't purely cosmetic, my teeth underneath are filed down and incredibly sensitive due to not being exposed for nearly 9 nears now so there's no way I can physically go without them.
I was only 11 when I did get them and frankly, it seems disgusting that poor advice from my dentist is going to lead me to have to take out a loan to pay for treatment that wasn't my choice.
I'm aware I need to see a dentist to discuss this but, I won't be able to until I go back to uni.
