Silver or White Fillings for Daughter?
My 8 year old daughter has two extremely tiny cavities in her very last top molars on either side. She has excellent dental hygiene, but the Dr said the ridges in her teeth are fairly deep and she probably couldn't quite get back there well.
My insurance covers silver fillings 100%. I have to call to find out what percent of white fillings they cover, but the nurse did tell me that two white fillings will cost $250. In general, we can afford this. But because of the size and location of the cavities, I am tempted to go with the silver. I would rather save that money in case any of the kids gets larger or more visible cavities.
What would you do?
