Total bill was $1600, $250-350/fillingrnInsurance paid all but $239 (80 of which was for sedation)So I'm thankful I have dental insurance, but this seems very expensive for 2 hours of work.$800/hour? Are dental materials really that costly? I'll remember to floss daily now!

Type: AmalgamNumber of Surfaces: Don't know
Number of Cavities: 8
Have Aetna ppo went to out of network dentist they did not say anything until after I was done. They just want money. First was X-rays , long session of teeth cleaning , three amalgam fillings, and started root canal. Have two more appointments to attend. had insurance through work for 6 yrs and haven't used it till now. Recommend if u have insurance use it yearly for dental cleaning and check ups to avoid bad tooth decay. Paid $663 out of pocket insurance paid 80% for most of the stuff I needed done.

refill cavity for lost filling
Amount: $134.00
Posted by: deelane in Wichita, KS.Posted: August 22nd, 2011 10:08AM
Type: fillingNumber of Surfaces: 1
Number of Cavities: 1
Recently lost a 4-year old filling while flossing; dentist explained some decay had occurred, hence the loosened filling. Refilled with composite materials; entire procedure was fast, painless, and competent. I don't where my dental bill falls in the low-to-high scale but I was more than satisfied with the service. No dental insurance, unfortunately, so it's all pay-as-you exit with my dental office.

I have spent a total of $1,251.00 on 5 fillings for my 4 yr. old granddaughter and they are baby teeth! Does anyone else find this ridiculous?? I paid it because she was in pain and needed something done, but needless to say we will not be going back there!! I paid $986.00 then today the found another "small" cavity. I told them to go ahead and fill it. Then they wanted another $265.00!!!!

I was quoted a price of filling a cavity I think it was on #26, front bottom, son chipped it when he was a baby and stood up into my chin. tooth chipped on top and they put a filling on it that lasted 24 years. Now it needs filling again and I was given the price of 350 dollars for one small filling. I think I should shop around or is that a normal price?

Decay under Composite, Chipped Molar
Amount: $530.00
Posted by: td in Canoga Park, CA.Posted: March 23rd, 2011 10:03AM
Type: resin composite, ceramic onlayNumber of Surfaces: 3
Number of Cavities: 2
I purchased individual delta dental dmo in CA to cover the cost of cavity I discovered through an exam & cleaning I purchased through groupon. The groupon dentist quoted me $256 per filling but I didn't end up using him because the exam was cursory & the dentist didn't even look in my mouth. Purchased dental dmo plan & went to the new dentist who found the same decay & the chipped molar (which I had suspected after I bit down on a small rock in food). Recommended I do an onlay vs. filling as the decay was in between the teeth & once he started drilling, the decay was deeper than what the x-ray seemed to indicate.
$115 - 3 surface composite resin for posterior
$415 - onlay ceramic/porcelain 3 surface
The above amounts are the copay that Delta Dental DMO plan specifies that I pay to the dentist. The DMO plan cost me $133/year & there are no copays for cleaning & x-rays. Since I have another onlay & maybe a crown to go, this plan is better than just paying cash.

Number of Cavities: 2
I had an examination, two cavities drilled and filled with composite resin. Total cost was $100. When I had a root canal done previously the cost, with the crown, was around $400. Good service too. A fraction of what I quoted in the US.
