The benefits of private over NHS dental care

With the last few years having seen an improvement in NHS dental care, you may be wondering what the advantages of private dental care are. One of the biggest advantages is the wide range of treatments you have access too – from orthodontics to implants. Private dental care is also more affordable than you might think – with great price plans available at private dentists like AP Smilecare. What’s more, at AP Smilecare we offer the best of both worlds. As an NHS dentist and the best private dentist Blackburn has to offer, our patients can benefit from NHS prices or a wider range of dental treatments – depending on which of the two is a priority.

The complete dental service – when you need it most

We’ve all experienced the long waits, rushed appointments, and limited availability of appointment outside of working hours at an NHS establishment. While this may not be an issue to some, it can be frustrating if you want the best in dental care.

With private dental care, you’ll receive the complete service. Your appointment will always run on time, you won’t have to put up with busy waiting rooms, and you’ll get all the time and attention you need in the dentist’s chair. We also offer evening appointments on Tuesday and Thursdays and have appointments available on Saturday by arrangement.

A great range of dental treatments

Our NHS dental care service covers all the basics – including dental care for all your family and common treatments like fillings. We’ll assess the general health of your teeth and gums and always offer advice on how to best look after your oral health, recommending any specialist treatments that might help.

With private care, however, we give you access to a huge range of other treatments, including implants and dentures.

Some of our other popular services, available to private dental care patients, include:

  • Teeth Whitening – This cosmetic treatment isn’t available on the NHS.
  • Same Day Smiles – This private treatment will give you the best possible functional and cosmetic result.
  • Orthodontic treatments – We offer a variety of Orthodontic treatments that aren’t available on the NHS for those over the age of 18.

To find out more about these services, take a look at our website or give the AP Smilecare team a call.
