I want to change my old silver filling to tooth color fillings. Thinking about getting dental insurance to help with the cost. What would be the best dental insurance plan for that?
Answer: Generally dental insurance will not cover changing out silver fillings to tooth colored fillings unless there is new dental decay in the tooth that needs to be address. What you want to have done is more cosmetic and is not a covered benefit in most dental insurance plans. Therefore you may want to review a low cost dental discount plan. Under a dentist discount plan you can save money for that type of dental service at least 20 percent or more.
