Here at Whitehall Dental, you have the choice to choose the type of treatment that suits and is right for your needs and we know it can be confusing to know the difference on offer between Private and NHS dental treatment.
Commonly, it is assumed Private dental care is more expensive than NHS treatment, but this may not always be the case and usually, the service and treatment outcome you receive is better, minimally invasive and unrestricted.
At Whitehall Dental we treat all our patients with the same level of care and attention but what we can offer does depend on the treatment you choose to invest in for your personal dental health.
Cosmetic treatment is not available on the NHS. This means that the materials and treatments to achieve the best tooth-like appearance, colour and that conserve your tooth structure are often not used on the NHS. However, in choosing private treatment options, this will allow you to have the best access to the possible treatment and materials that give that cosmetic and functional result to match your smile.
We will provide you with an estimate after discussing the treatment options best suited for you. Cost solely reflects the time spent achieving the result by dentist & laboratory technician, and the cost of materials. Should you want a reliable and worry-free approach to the costing of your dental treatment, but would still like to have access and receive private dentistry, then please consider our dental membership plan, Denplan. Designed to treat you preventatively and to private spec.
Here at Whitehall Dental we take pride in treating all our patients be it NHS or Private with the same level of care and attention. The Government however does impose some restrictions and fixes patient charges nationally on NHS dental treatment.
At Whitehall Dental, your dentist will always give you a choice of your NHS and private treatment options, to enable you to make a choice which is right for you. You will then always be given a written treatment plan so you can see the treatment required and likely cost of treatment.
In summary, NHS dentistry is designed to be functional, whereas private dentistry is usually functional and cosmetic. Each treatment plan is individual and it is best to discuss with your dentist the available NHS and private options.
