5 Factors That Affect The Cost of Your Dental Filling



Do you suspect you have a cavity? Here’s what you need to know about cavities and why it’s important to visit your family dentist as soon as possible. 

A cavity is a hole in a tooth that forms when acids in the mouth breakdown the harder outer layers of the tooth. While it might seem like a minor problem, treating a cavity as soon as possible is key to restoring your oral health and preventing more extensive, and expensive, dental treatment. 

Some of the signs you may have a cavity include: 

  • Visible holes or pits in your teeth 
  • Toothache or spontaneous tooth pain 
  • Brown, black, or white staining on the surface of your teeth 
  • Pain when you bite down

What Will Affect the Cavity Filling Cost? 

When you are considering the cost of your dental fillings, the material used will mainly affect how much you will be paying for your procedure. However, here are some other factors that may influence the cost of your cavity filling: 

  1. How Many teeth need fillings: One cavity is troublesome enough to deal with, but if you have many, you can expect to pay more if multiple fillings are necessary. 
  2. Amount of time required for treatment: If you have a cavity, as well as infected teeth or gums, you’ll likely need more than one visit, which will increase the cost of your treatment. 
  3. Which tooth has a cavity: If the cavity is located in an area that is difficult to reach, this will make the filling process more complicated and could result in a higher bill if more time or extra equipment is required for the procedure. 
  4. How affected the tooth is: If the cavity has affected the tooth significantly, and you find it harder to chew foods or use the tooth, stronger materials may be necessary to give a quality filling, which will raise the price. 
  5. The dentist: Not all dental offices are the same and cavity filling costs will vary by dentist and what insurances they accept, as well as the payment options they provide.
