I have been told by my dentist that I need a bridge on one side of my mouth and a crown on the other. When I asked how much this would cost on NHS i was told that she was unsure and that I would have to look it up on the internet. She offered me the private prices without hesitaion. Should I be able to get both done for one band C charge or would it be two charges?
