A composite filling is a material used in dentistry to restore teeth for several issues such as tooth fractures, cracks, tooth decay, and even cosmetic procedures. The portion of the affected tooth is removed using a drill and then replaced with composite filling materials which is then polished and contoured to match the appearance of natural teeth. In modern dentistry, the shade of the filling material is closely matched to the natural shade of the patients tooth to achieve the most aesthetic results. Composite materials are widely used in dentistry and is Dr. Grin’s preferred method over silver amalgam fillings for both its aesthetic compound as well as a safer alternative in regards to the mercury found in amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are very durable and will last several years in a patient with healthy oral hygiene.
Most insurance companies cover composite fillings under basic/restorative services. If a patient doesn`t have insurance coverage, they can expect to pay anywhere between $150-$500 per tooth. The cost of the filling is determined by the surfaces required to fill, this diagnosis is best determined by the treating dentist. 0% interest monthly payment plans are available for patients to take advantage of for extensive treatment.
