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 – either Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3 (see below)


If you are not exempt from charges, you should pay one of the following charges for each course of treatment you receive:
  • Emergency dental treatment – £19.70
  • This covers emergency care in a primary care NHS dental practice such as pain relief or a temporary filling.


  • Band 1 course of treatment – £19.70
  • 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.


  • Band 2 course of treatment – £53.90
  • 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.


  • Band 3 course of treatment – £233.70
  • This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures, bridges and other laboratory work.
