As far as i know it is not per filling, it is per treatment,
1 filling or 10 fillings it is still band 2 and £62.00 plus for the treatment

Is there a dental school at her university, or your local university? She may be able to get work done there for free or reduced charges?

As above, full-time student status does not automatically exempt you from dentist and prescription costs, she would need to obtain the low-income certificate.
Do you know how long it's been since she last visited a dentist? Nine fillings does sound like an awful lot! It's unlikely she'd go from having a healthy set of teeth to needing 9 fillings in the space of 6 months to a year. (Our dental practice insists on NHS patients going every 6 months or they risk losing their place, presumably for this reason) so unless she's been really negligent, eg not been to the dentist for years on end, I think I'd be inclined to get a second opinion.
