Simpler Charging - NHS dental charges from 1 April 2011
If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, there are three standard charges. The amount you pay depends on what treatment you need.
NHS dental charges
There are three NHS charge bands.
Band 1: £17 includes an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a scale and polish and planning for further treatment.
Band 2: £47 includes all treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions).
Band 3: £204 includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.
For more information, see What is included in each NHS dental band charge?
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.
If your initial treatment is classed as emergency treatment, it may not be included in any later course of treatment that you need. For emergency dental treatment (including out-of-hours treatment), you will have to pay a separate charge of £17.
