How much does a filling cost?
It all depends on where it is, how big it is and if you need x-rays and other tests first. For a single-sided filling on a tooth close to the front, most dentists in Brisbane change between $130 and $250. We’re very competitive. It’s always best to have regular check-ups and to act quickly if a dental problem arises. The longer you leave it, the bigger the procedure to fix it!
