Dental charges depend 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. If you are referred to another dentist for another, separate course
of treatment, you can expect a second charge. Some minor treatments are
If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, the amount you spend will depend on what clinical treatment you need.
Some people do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment – see Who is entitled to free NHS dental treatment in England?
There are 3 bands of charges for all NHS dental treatments.
As from April 2019, the current dental charges are:
Band 1 course of treatment – £22.70
This covers an examination, diagnosis (eg X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed, and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant. If you require urgent care, even if your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge.
Band 2 course of treatment – £62.10
This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as
fillings, root canal work or if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.
Band 3 course of treatment – £269.30
This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges.
Treatments such as veneers and braces are only available on the NHS if there's a clinical need for them (not for cosmetic reasons). Similarly, other cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, are not available on the NHS.
. Detailed information about each treatment band can be found on the NHS choices website: http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/dentists/Pages/nhs-dental-treatments.aspx
What if I need more treatment?
If, within two months of completing a course of treatment, you need more treatment from the same charge band or a lower one, for example another filling, you don't have to pay anything extra.
However, after two months, you will have to pay an additional band charge.
Emergency dental treatment will deal with the problem at hand and the fee for each emergency visit is currently £22.70. You may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, you will have to pay a second charge in the relevant treatment band.
