What are the NHS Dental charges?
The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. You will 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: Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3.
Band 1 course of treatment - This covers an examination, diagnosis (e.g. X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale to remove tartar/ plaque and the application of fluoride varnish.£20.60
Band 2 course of treatment - This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work, advanced gum care and if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.£56.30
Band 3 course of treatment - This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures or bridges.£244.30
