What if I Need More Treatment?
If, within two calendar months of completing a course of treatment, you need more treatment from the same or lower charge band – such as another filling – you don't have to pay anything extra.
If the additional treatment needed is in a higher band, you will have to pay for the new NHS course of treatment.
However, once two months have passed after completing a course of treatment, you'll have to pay the NHS charge band (listed above) for any NHS dental treatment received.
Certain treatments (including lost items) are guaranteed for 12 months from the date they were completed. These are:
- root fillings
- porcelain veneers
Treatments provided under this guarantee must be similar or related to the original treatment, but they don't have to be like for like.
