Say good-bye to those unsightly silver amalgam fillings. At Kastner Dental Care, we use composite and porcelain fillings that resemble the color of your actual teeth. Enjoy a natural look while getting the protection you need for your teeth!
Many insurance companies see the use of composite fillings and restoration of your molar teeth as a cosmetic choice. In many cases, the insurance company will pay a benefit based on its "usual and customary fee" for amalgam (silver) restorations and fillings. This leaves you responsible for the remaining non-covered balance.
For example, one surface composite restoration in our office is $123. The insurance company will base its benefit on a "usual and customary fee" of $85. The remaining $38 difference is passed on to you to pay, along with your co-payment portion.
If this creates a financial problem for you, discuss your options with Dr. Kastner before the treatment begins.
