At VS Dental Care Centre, we offer dental treatments on the NHS. As the dental treatments offered on the NHS focus on prevention and oral health, cosmetic treatments aren’t available on NHS bandings. We do offer private and cosmetic treatments which can be done in conjunction with NHS treatment.
NHS dental charges
Band 1: £23.80
Covers an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a scale and polish, and planning for further treatment.
Band 2: £65.20
Covers all treatment included in Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions).
Band 3: £282.80
Covers all treatment included in Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.

Under NHS regulation, a patient can be asked to pay charges at commencement of treatment. NHS patients pay according to the charge band appropriate to the treatment required. If following a check-up you need further treatment, we will discuss the treatment plan and the costs involved. NHS patients can opt to have part of their treatment done privately.
