How much does NHS dental treatment cost?

Since 1st April 2006 NHS dental treatment costs have been organised under a simplified system which groups treatments under one of three price bands. The following list, which applies to Wales from 1st April 2014, includes examples of how current price bands relate to some common dental treatments, procedures and services;

Band 1 = £14.70

  • Basic scale and polish* (please see details below)
  • Examination, case assessment and report.
  • Advice, diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • X-rays and reports.
  • Instruction in the prevention of dental and oral disease including dietary advice and dental hygiene instruction.
  • Marginal correction of fillings.
  • Adjustments to and easing of dentures or orthodontic appliances.

*The price of scale and polishing treatments can vary depending on what exactly is being carried out, therefore ask your dental hygienist how much the treatment will cost beforehand. Treatment on the NHS should cost £13.00 for basic treatment, or £42.00 for more advanced treatment.

Band 2 = £47.00

  • Advanced scale and polish.* (please see details above)
  • Permanent fillings.
  • Extraction of teeth.
  • Transplantation of teeth.
  • Oral surgery including surgical removal of cyst, buried root, unerupted tooth, impacted tooth.

Band 3 = £203.00

  • Crowns including any pin or post aids to retention.
  • Bridges including any pin or post aids to retention.
  • Full or partial dentures.
  • Orthodontic treatment and appliances.
  • Other custom made appliances excluding sports guards.

Charges will be for a course of treatment, so, for example, if three fillings are required, you will still only pay the one treatment charge.

If you need more treatment within the same charge band, for example an additional filling, within two months of completing a course of treatment, you should not have to pay anything extra. This does not apply to any emergency treatment you might need, which will normally be charged separately.
