Hi, my daughter is 18 and in full time educuation, so currently still gets free dentist treatment. Our dentist advised that she needs 3 large fillings, however due to her fainting often and fear of dentist, she has been referred for conscious sedation at another dentist which is approx 60 miles away. She really wants white fillings, as is worried about having so may silver at such a young age. I asked this new dentist how much I would have to pay, as I know you dont usually get them free on NHS for back ones. They have advised that is she has white ones, the whole procedure will then have to become private, and also the time will lengthen from 30mins to one hr, therefore costing me £665. Does this sound correct? I though I could just pay for the white fillings . Now not sure what to do, as I cant really afford that, was going to use credit card but that is so much . But also feel bad that she will have 3 silver fillings. Any advice appreciated.
