What treatment is available under the NHS?

  • All treatment that is, in your dentist's opinion, clinically necessary to protect and maintain good oral health is available on the NHS. This means the NHS provides any treatment that you need to keep your mouth, teeth, and gums healthy and free of pain, including:

    • dentures

    • crowns

    • bridges


Treatment not available under the NHS

  • Dental implants and orthodontic treatment, such as braces, are available on the NHS, but only if there's a medical need for the treatment.

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

    If you're interested in having any cosmetic dental treatments, you should ask your dentist how much private treatment will cost. Charges for any private treatment will be added to the charges for your NHS treatment.

NHS Dental Charges

There are three NHS charge bands. From April 2018 to March 2019, the costs are as follows:

  • Band 1: £21.60  Covers an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a scale and polish, and planning for further treatment. 

  • Band 2: £59.10  Covers all treatment included in Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions). 

  • Band 3: £256.50  Covers all treatment included in Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.

  • If you require urgent care, you will pay a Band 1 charge of £21.60. Most urgent treatments can be done in one appointment.  Once your urgent course of treatment is complete, you may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, the relevant NHS banding charge will apply.

Routine Dental Examinations

Your dentist will advise you when you should make your next routine
examination appointment (according to the NICE guidelines). If you would like to be seen more frequently, this can be
arranged on a private basis.

We will send reminders by text message or email (whichever you specify as most convenient). If you do not have a mobile phone or an email address, please make a note in your diary when you are next
due, and contact us to make the appointment.

Please note that we send reminders as a
courtesy, it is the responsibility of the
patient to ensure they remain on the NHS
dental list by regularly attending the
practice.

We accept cash and debit/credit cards
for payment of treatment.

Payment is usually requested up-front, or per
appointment. Payment can be made with
cash or bank debit cards or by cheque.
Cheques are made payable to

  • We accept cash, credit card or
