Dental Costs Hook - NHS Treatment

NHS Dental Costs

NHS Dentistry is a general entitlement, there is no need to be in receipt of benefits. We show private dental costs as well as NHS prices, for an interesting comparison. NHS fees are split into three bands, depending on the treatment required.

Band 1: £22.70 includes an examination, diagnosis and a treatment plan. If required, this includes x-rays, images, a scale and polish.

Band 2: £62.10 includes treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional care, such as fillings, root canal treatment, extractions. We will advise on which surgical and non surgical treatments are included.

Band 3: £269.30 includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex dental procedures, such as crowns, dentures, bridges and custom made dental appliances.

Treatment Examples

A few examples of costs are given below,. You are also welcome to ask our staff about pricing at any time, or of course talk to your dentist. Further details on fees and exemptions are on the NHS website at Paying For NHS Dental Treatment.

Example 1: You simply require an examination and x-ray. This will fall into NHS Band 1 and you will pay £22.70.

Example 2: Along with your examination and x-ray, a filling is needed. Treatment comes under band 2 and you pay £62.10. Even where more than one filling is required, you still only pay £62.10.

Example 3: Following an examination and x-ray, a custom made crown or denture is needed. This course of treatment would come under NHS Band 3 and you would pay £269.30.
