Factors Influencing Tooth Filling Cost in Mumbai

 

The other factors that influence dental cavity filling cost are:

  • Type of material used for dental filling – Nowadays composites are preferred material as they have more aesthetic value and are stronger, more durable. A cheaper alternative is glass ionomer cement. They offer lesser aesthetic qualities but more fluoride releasing property. Typically glass ionomer is used when there is severe decay in part of the tooth that extends below the gum (root caries). Other older materials like silver fillings are not recommended due to mercury content and poor aesthetics.

But cheapest might not necessarily mean the best for your teeth. Discuss the cost of teeth filling with your dentist and other options to get the best judgement on what suits your requirement.

  • Skill and experience of the dentists – Dental filling is a specialist task and here the location of dental clinic, clinic hygiene, quality of service and definitely the skill of dentists involved should be given priority over costs.
