Cosmetic Dental Negligence

Cosmetic Dental Treatments

With many cosmetic treatments on the rise in the UK, cosmetic dentistry is becoming more and more common. On the market there are a range of procedures one can purchase to make your teeth more desirable - such as whitening, straightening and veneers - to name merely a few popular treatments. The last thing you expect when forking out thousands of pounds on the perfect Hollywood smile is that your negligent dentist could cause you to end up with a less than perfect set of teeth, or worse, put you in a lot of pain.

What Is Cosmetic Dental Negligence?

A negligently performed cosmetic dentistry procedure would be one where the individual:

  • is left in unnecessary pain
  • has an unacceptable aesthetic result following the operation
  • has not been fully informed of the risks that came with the procedure

If any of these sound familiar, contact a specialist medical negligence solicitor today as you could be entitled to compensation. Negligence may arise from an individual not being properly trained in the procedure they are carrying out, or from making a surgical error which most other dentists would not have made. Not only will making a claim get you the compensation you deserve but it will prevent what happened to you happening to someone else.

What are the Costs?

1stClaims does not charge you for using our service and all initial enquiries with our Solicitors are also free of charge, so rest assured, this initial step of making an enquiry will not cost you anything.

Once one of our Solicitors has assessed the merits of your enquiry they will make a judgement on the likely chances of bringing a successful claim and if the prospects are good, they will normally offer to take your case on a No Win No Fee basis. NOTE: If your case is successful your Solicitor will deduct up to a maximum of 25% of your final settlement or compensation award as payment for their fees.
