Fillings are a restorative dental procedure used to repair decayed, chipped or cracked teeth as well as prevent further damage. If you need a filling, here are a few things to consider and discuss with your dentist.


The cost of filling depends on the filling material, size of the cavity and your dental plan coverage. Be sure to review your policy before visiting the dentist for treatment. If a filling or restoration will cost more than $200, request a pre-determination of benefits to help you determine how much will be covered by your plan and how much you may owe your dentist. 

Brush twice per day, floss once per day and visit your dentist regularly to help avoid cavities and maintain a healthy smile for life.
