Dental Benefit, Can you change old silver filling to white ones.

Saturday, Aug. 22nd 2015 8:47 AM

Question: I have four silver filling that where put in when I was a kid.  Now that I am older and working I like to change them out for new white filling can that be done?

Answer: If you are asking can a dentist change out old silver filling to Resin-Based Composite (tooth color filling), in most cases yes. However if you are wanting to know if dental insurance will provide benefits for this type of dental service, often times they will not. Many dental insurance plans will not cover this type of dental service, since it is viewed as a cosmetic service.

Yet most dental insurance plans will provide benefits, when there is a new cavity in the tooth that has the old silver filling requiring the filling to be removed in order to fix the cavity. In this case, you do not have to replace the filling with a silver filling but can at that point replace it with a resin base composite filling.
