NHS dental care is available to all members of the public and to NHS exempt patients. As an NHS dental patient you are charged a set price depending on the band the treatment falls in to. NHS bands are only applicable if you clinically need treatment and treatment is to improve the health and function of your mouth.
It excludes all cosmetic and dental treatments that are not clinically necessary or for aesthetic reasons.
