hi, just wondering if anyone could help. went to the dentist and got root canel treatment on one tooth, this was filled and i was advised that i will need a crown within the 6 mths. ( cost of the crown not given and i didnt even ask to be honest) i paid via the nhs of £156 for the root canel work but just wondering if the crown price will be via the nhs or do you need to pay private for this

it depends, in my dentist they have a sign saying some treatments like bridgework etc are only done privately, best bet to ring them and find out x x x

tried phoning them 3 times this afternoon but just goes onto the answering machine. when i asked him if i could get a white filling instead of the silver he said that i would need to go private for the full treatment ( would cost approx £370) decided to go via nhs.

do you get any type of tax credits, i got mine done for free, as we are on tax credits

looks like they robbed you, make a complaint, i did to my old dentist, he took me to one side and said very quietly that if i wanted root canal and a crown it would cost £500, well you can guess what i told him and i reported them for over charging.
they are the dentist on eastcheap in letchworth, they are really bad.

I have a nhs dentist . and like you had a root canel filling that cost about £45 then about 6 months later it cracked and had to have a crown ,Top teer on nhs cost £198 a few months back. if your treatment was on the nhs you were in my opinion overcharged.

i went to a dentist 3 weeks ago ( didnt know that he wasnt an nhs dentist at the time )
he told me that for my root canel and a crown it was £710 hence the reson that i changed to the nhs one last week. the first one charge me £80 for a check up , clean and an hi tech xray however failed to see that i need root canel. he was more interested in trying to get me to pay £2000 for an implant ( what a d*ck)

I had root canal work in January, something like 5 visits overall and it cost me about £66, so I think you've been doen there. As for the crown, sorry, I've never had one so don't know how much they might cost!

you should be elidgible for a nhs tax credit exemption card, so no more paying for any dentist treatment or prescriptions, check it out and apply for it
