Does Dental Insurance Pay for Amalgam Filling Removal?

It really depends on the specific insurance plan, whether or not Safe Amalgam Filling Removal is covered by Dental Insurance.  Natural Dentist Associates includes the Safe Mercury / Silver Filling Removal as apart of a dental filling replacement fee.  Some dental offices will charge a separate fee for IAOMT.org Safe Removal of an Amalgam Filling.  Natural Dentist Associates does not charge a separate fee for Metal Filling Removal.

A typical Dental PPO insurance  will cover 80% of the cost of the Filling Removal.  Most Insurance plans have a annual maximum benefit such as $1500-$5000 at which point the patient will need to pay for 100% of the fee.  Some Insurance plans have a maximum allowable charge and others will pay on a pre-determined fee schedule.  At Natural Dentist Associates, we have insurance professionals in the office who will contact your insurance company and determine how your insurance works in our dental office.
