As your dentist, I want to provide you with what I consider to be the best possible treatment for your child. For the majority of the fillings we do, a composite filling is more appropriate. Composite fillings (white fillings) require less preparation or removal of natural tooth structure. This can sometimes mean that no anesthesia is necessary. Removal of less tooth structure can also decrease the likelihood of a pulp or nerve exposure, in some cases. Composite fillings bond to the tooth which greatly reduces the possibility of a future fracture of the tooth.

I have read your policy, as indicated by my signature below. I agree to pay for services rendered that are not covered or allowed by my insurance company.

Your insurance plan is not likely to pay for a composite filling. You are expected to pay the difference between an amalgam (silver filling) and a composite filling on the day the service is rendered. The estimated difference in price range is from $35.00-$45.00 per filling, depending on your insurance coverage.

Let me assure you that only services necessary and appropriate for your child's treatment and care will be performed. If you have any questions, our staff will be happy to assist you. Thank you for your understanding.

Dr. Massey Willingham
