NHS Dentistry Explained
Dentistry is one of the few NHS services where you must pay a contribution towards the cost of your care.
All treatments necessary to maintaining your oral health are available on the NHS. However, there are some treatments (mainly cosmetic) that aren’t available under the NHS, and you may choose to have these privately.
Treatment fees depend on the type of treatment. The NHS Band System is the best way to visualise the typical charges for various treatments.
Registering under the NHS is free at Perfect Smile and takes just minutes to do. Plus, we’re accepting new NHS patients at over 20 of our 27 practices.
For any further information regarding free NHS treatments and eligibility, get in touch.
What you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, teeth, and gums healthy.
You’ll only ever be asked to pay ONE charge for each complete course of treatment (must be completed within two months), even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it. Your treatment cost will fall under Band 1, 2 or 3.
