More information about NHS Dentistry in Edinburgh

The NHS is a great service designed to make sure that everyone can receive the  treatment that they NEED.  When you see an NHS dentist in our Edinburgh practice you can be assured that you will receive the very best NHS dental treatment possible. However, we recognise that there are some situations when there may be a treatment option that you PREFER but that the NHS understandably does not cover.


Most often the reason someone will opt for NHS Upgrade items, or select our private dentist service is because with our private service:


  • You have a wider choice of treatments
  • You have a wider choice of materials than an NHS dentist
  • Many of the options are more aesthetic 


If you choose  an NHS Upgrade option, here are some examples of our fees:


NHS Upgrade Items ( items that the NHS does not usually fund )


White filling on back tooth Small  from £54
White filling on back tooth Medium  from £94
White filling on back tooth Large  from £120
Tooth coloured crown on back tooth   from £291





For even more choice you may decide that our Private Dentistry options suit you better.
