Dentistry is one of the few NHS services where you have to pay a contribution towards the cost of your care. The information on this page explains what you may have to pay for your NHS dental treatment.
This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if clinically needed, and preventative care such as the application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant if appropriate.
This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or removal of teeth but not more complex items covered by Band 3.
This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures, bridges and other laboratory work.
Any treatment that your dentist believes is clinically necessary to achieve and maintain good oral health should be available on the NHS.
You will not be charged for individual items within a course of treatment. Depending on what you need to have done, you should only ever be asked to pay one charge for each complete course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it. A course of treatment is finished when your dentist considers good oral health has been achieved.
Private fees are for guidance only - a fully costed treatment plan will be provided for you at the time of the consultation
Fillings from £85
Crowns from £400
Teeth whitening from £200
Be aware that being repeatedly late for your treatment sessions or failure to attend appointments may result in the early termination of the course of treatment has been achieved within the treatment period as per our practice policy.
