NHS Fee Guide






NHS dental fees

If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, there are three standard charges. The amount you pay will depend on the level of treatment that you need.

The three NHS charge bands are as follows:

  • Band 1: £18.86. This charge includes an examination, diagnosis and preventive advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, scale and polish and planning for further treatment.
  • Band 2: £51.30. This charge includes all the necessary treatment covered by the £16.50 charge, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment or extractions.
  • Band 3: £222.50.†This charge includes all the necessary treatment that is covered by the £16.50 and £45.60 charges, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.

Partial help
If you are named on a valid HC3 certificate (partial help), you might get some help towards the cost of your NHS dental treatment. The certificate tells you how much you will have to pay.

Teeth Straightening

We can now†align front teeth more quickly than with traditional braces using the Cfast technique.

Why Cfast?

Fast - You will have straight from teeth in about six months.

Discreet - the wires and brackets are almost invisible.

Affordable - the short treatment time dramatically cuts the cost.
