Costs for emergency dental treatment

We will advise you of the cost of any dental treatment before we undertake it. We are also able to offer you antibiotics at the practice should you need them so you won’t need to go to a chemist afterward.

If you are not in pain but have a problem that needs looking at – maybe a broken filling – we are happy to see you on an ad hoc basis to address your specific problem. In most cases, we can do this in one appointment but sometimes you will need a second visit for more definitive treatment. Either way, we will let you know how much it will cost before we start.

As a guide, an extraction costs from £97 and a replacement filling costs from £79.  Costs depend on how big it is and what type of filling you choose (metal or white). An x-ray is £9 and a course of antibiotics £8.
