At New Baltimore Family Dentistry we never use Amalgam (Silver) Fillings and believe that Composite Fillings are more visually pleasing and long lasting without the possible negative health risks associated with silver mercury fillings. Composites are "tooth colored" fillings made with a composite resin and in a matter of minutes quickly hardens to help protect your natural tooth.
We would like to bring to your attention that there are several insurance companies which do not reimburse their subscribers for composite fillings but will only cover the allowable fee for Amalgam (Silver) Fillings. If this is the case with your insurance company, you will be responsible for paying the out of pocket difference for the composite fillings not covered by your insurance. Please check your insurance policy for further information on reimbursement for Composite Fillings. Our dedicated staff strives to provide you with an estimate of any out of pocket expense you may incur, feel free to ask any insurance questions you may have; we are always here to help!
