"Although costs vary across the country and by dental office, the cost of typical metal filling ranges from approximately $75 to $145 per filling, whereas a composite resin fillings range from $150 to $300for a single surface white composite filling."
Here are more opinions and answers from other users:
Fillings cost between $50 and $300 depending where you live, and the filling material (amalgam or composite) used.
Dentists won't lose their jobs because they use mercury amalgams. There has been study after study after study, that shows no diseases linked to amalgams. To say mercury is poisonous in all forms is akin to saying oxygen is poisonous, because when combined with carbon it can form carbon monoxide - therefore all oxygen is poisonous. And so far as re-mineralization is concerned - I'm sure Dr. Judd's research is accurate, but most cavities are formed in deep pits and fissures in tooth structure. Food particles get jammed down deep into crevasses so small that a tooth brush can't remove them. Eventually a cavity forms. This is how 90% of cavities form. Sealants, fluoride and proper hygiene and diet can control the vast majority of decay in this country.
DENTAL FILLINGSTHE COST of a filling will vary greatly, depending on who you go to and the type of filling. An amalgam ("silver") is cheaper than a composite (white), but the best way to tell is to just call a local dentist from the phonebook and ask them. The more affluent the area, the more they will cost. If you NEED a tooth filled and are afraid that you can't afford it, check to see if there is a TEACHING HOSPITAL in your area. Graduates of dentistry doing their residencey will be MUCH cheaper. When I was younger and didn't have dental insurance, that's what I did and had no problems at all........... FillingsI had 6 fillings done around a year and a half ago and I had the white (light cured) fillings done. My insurance cost was about $75 per tooth. The silver was free but I didn;t choose that because the silver can put cracks in your teeth and make them sensitive. CONTINUEDYears ago, when composite (white) fillings were becoming popular, I decided to have all my fillings done that way,(at the "suggestion" of the dentist). After only a few years, the fillings on the chewing surfaces started to crack, and I had to have them replaced with regular silver (amalgam) fillings by another dentist. He explained to me that composite fillings are best for non-chewing surfaces that are visable. Silver fillings are still the strongest, and most durable for chewing surface teeth. I think the first dentist that did all my fillings in composite was in it for the extra money. COSTI just went to the dentist and my fillings are going to be $220 a piece. The fillings are from not flossing, but I guess cost vary since my coworker had a filling that was only $90 allegedly
Fillings are treatment for tooth decay. The number of fillings a person has depends on how many cavities have been treated. There is no set number of fillings a child should have. A general rule is, less is better, provided they are seeing a dentist frequently and their oral hygiene is good.
I just paid $250 for a resin inlay in South Korea.
It depends on personal taste, there are a lot of different fillings you can put into your child. You could try celery, onion, salt, pepper, bread crumbs and even fruits. Most turkey fillings should work ok for children to.
it should cost around 100 and 80 dollars
They should cost about 20 dollars

The answer from the dental community has been "Not Much". There is no conclusive evidence that the amount of Mercury contained in a dental filling can hurt you. You should know that they are not comprised entirely of Mercury and the substance is referred to as amalgam. There are alternatives to Mercury amalgam fillings and you should ask you dentist if these are available if your concern is that great.
