NHS Dentistry

All clinical treatments and dentures are available on the NHS. This means all treatment that is necessary to protect and maintain the health of your mouth, teeth and gums, including dentures, crowns, and bridges.

If you want to have cosmetic treatments such as tooth whitening, white fillings, or crowns on your back teeth, you may decide to have this treatment done privately. Please ask your dentist how much this will cost in addition to charges for NHS treatment.

We will be happy to talk you through the NHS dental charges with you however for more information and details on the treatments available on the NHS please click here. Below is an outline of some of the NHS treatments available at Family Dental Practice.
