NHS dentistry fees are set by the Scottish Executive. An NHS check up in Glasgow is free of charge and at this appointment a full estimate of treatment will be provided.
The maximum charge on the NHS is £384 per course of treatment. Some patients may be totally exempt from any NHS charges. Permission may have to be granted from the health board to do some treatments.
The NHS service does not cover treatments such as tooth coloured fillings in premolars and molars. This is the same for certain areas where crowns and veneers may be placed. Whitening techniques and implant procedures are only done on a private basis.
