An estimate of costs

Where treatment is required, you will be given a written estimate and treatment plan. The cost of National Health Service dental treatment is set by Government and you will pay the same whichever dental practice you choose to go to.

Fees for private dental care vary between dentists and depend on, for example, the quality of materials and dental laboratory fees.
