My dentist told me that if I wanted a white filling on one of my back molars, it was going to cost me £200+

He explained that it was this price due to it being 3 surfaces being filled with composite.

Am I being ripped off?

Also I asked for an exact price, but was told it would be roughly £200 - £225 and couldn't be accurate as there may be more decay than expected under the current filling which is there.

I had to pay70£ per white filling because it counted as ‘cosmetic treatment’

225 sounds a bit high...

healthcare if you have to pay for it is always like at least like 5X plus the true cost of the procedure, so I would say yes you are being ripped off without a doubt..

It's counted as three white fillings in one tooth, as the tooth is large

I'm willing to pay, I meant is it a reasonable market price.

If you need it done you’ll have to get it done
Bit silly tbh But some dentists require you to pay for their ppe too so maybe it’s the new policy

It's towards the higher end of what youd expect to pay for a filling but its not completely out of the park. Might be worth going to a different dentist to shop around though.
