Distinction between amalgam and composite resin when it comes to your dental bill

If you must choose between amalgam or composite resin restoration, it is better to inquire about the cost of each of these options beforehand.

For those who are covered by the RAMQ for the reimbursement of dental fillings, it does not cover all composite restorations. Someone who chooses the composite resin for an ineligible tooth will have to pay the full cost of the restoration.

In addition, many insurers cover only a certain percentage of the amalgam restoration and only on some teeth.
