When You Need Dental Fillings near You

There are several types of dental fillings. They vary based on cost, durability, and esthetics. We may discuss the options and decide what will best fit your oral health needs.

Directly Fabricated Dental Fillings

These fillings are done in one visit. They are called “direct” because the dentist places, forms, and shapes the material directly on the tooth in the mouth.

  • Silver Amalgam Filling

    Silver amalgam fillings offer the most budget-friendly option for dental fillings, typically ranging from $50 to $300. For fillings covering one or two surfaces, expect costs between $50 and $150. Fillings involving three surfaces or more may range from $130 to $300.

  • Resin/Composite (White Fillings)

    These materials are more esthetic than amalgam. The newer materials used today are quite esthetic and will not wear as quickly compared with older resin materials. However, composite fillings usually do not last as long as amalgam. Composite fillings may cost more than amalgam because it is a more expensive material and takes more time to place. They usually come in around a price point of $90-250 for the average cost of dental fillings using composite material. Composite restorations may be very conservative. Because the material bonds with the tooth structure (unlike amalgam), the dentist has to remove less tooth structure in order to place it. Composite fillings usually do not lead to cracked teeth.

Indirectly Fabricated Fillings (Dental Inlays)

These fillings are called “indirect” because they are usually made by a lab and may take two visits to complete. The dentist … Click to open this link in the same window … will remove the cavity and shape the tooth. A mold (impression) is taken of the tooth and surrounding teeth. The impression is sent to the lab, and a temporary filling material is placed in the tooth. On the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary filling and use cement to place the inlay in the tooth. While inlays do present more of a cost to the patient, they generally last longer than directly fabricated fillings.

  • Tooth-Colored Inlays

    These may be made of resin or porcelain and blend nicely with the tooth. These can be custom shaded to match the tooth exactly. Porcelain usually costs more than resin but will last longer. You can expect a dental fillings cost of at least $250 per filling for this type of restoration.

  • Metal Inlays

    These are usually made of gold. Metal is very long-lasting and does not wear away easily. These are obviously not the most esthetic option for restoring teeth, and they are the most expensive since they are gold. They can cost up to $4500 for just one gold filling.


How Much Does a Tooth Filling Cost?
