Document Can I carry out bleaching of teeth on the NHS?

Patient care involving external bleaching cannot be provided as part of an NHS Course of Treatment (CoT).

Internal bleaching of a non-vital tooth can be provided under the NHS, provided it was deemed clinically necessary by the performer. If deemed clinically necessary, this treatment is appropriate to a Band 2 CoT.

As with any Band 2 course of treatment, an examination and an assessment of the patient's oral health and completion of the planned treatment (that the patient is willing to undergo) is a requirement.
