How much does a filling cost?: Dr Steve Preddy, Dentist
Fillings are made of various materials. We have different types of tooth-coloured filling materials. Patients sometimes describe or ask for a white filling, but there are different types of materials in that.
And then there are amalgam fillings which are the more traditional ones which people are used to seeing, the silver fillings. So the cost is also determined by the size of the filling, as well as where it is in the mouth, how long it's going to take, how big it is, how deep it is - so it's quite an open-ended question, and the cost really is again something that would be explained by a dentist, after an examination.
