something to think about when you see a kid with capped teeth
So unfortunately my dd had a cavity that was filled last year, we went for routine check up last month and they said the filling fell out. i got the pre authorization paperwork fro m insurance and apparently my dental insurance will only pay to fill the same tooth every 24months (since it was only filled last year they will cover zero to replace the filling), but... they will pay to cap it. so, i can pay full price (about $240) to have them replace the filling, or i can spend about $45 to have the tooth capped. i think its dumb that insurance will pay to replace the whole damn tooth but wont cover to pop a new filling in. she really doesnt need a cap but if thats what insurance will pay for guess thats what she is getting.
