There are many different types of dental fillings, and figuring out which kind of filling is best for your child can be difficult. See why many dental patients are spending more for a resin composite filling, and learn how to find a dentist’s office with affordable filling treatments.
On average, resin composite fillings cost about $135–$240 per tooth. That is about $30–$40 more than traditional amalgam fillings. The cost varies based on how many sides of each tooth have decay.
Kool Smiles, a dental provider with more than 120 nationwide locations, provides affordable, cost-effective dental care to kids. When your child visits a Kool Smiles, the dentist will be able to determine if an amalgam or resin composite filling is best.
There are many reasons people prefer resin composite dental fillings, despite the cost. Although you should discuss treatment options with your child’s dentist before making decisions about your child’s teeth, here are two benefits of composite fillings:
1. Composite fillings look like teeth—Made from a mixture of plastic and glass, resin composite fillings are often known as white fillings due to their natural color. Many patients prefer this look, as metal amalgam fillings are sometimes noticeable.
2. Composite fillings strengthen the tooth—A composite filling bonds to the tooth and supports it. This helps avoid chipping.
If your child needs a filling, Kool Smiles always offers affordable prices, even for fillings. Our skilled dentists can sit down with you and your children to discuss filling options and see which one is right for your child.
As a provider of affordable dental care, Kool Smiles can help any child achieve great dental health. At Kool Smiles, we take Medicaid, SCHIP, TRICARE, and other forms of government-funded health insurance. We also accept most private dental insurance providers, cash, and credit cards.
