What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Dental cavities are a common problem that is created when bacteria attack your dental enamel. In the past, dental cavities were treated with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of different metals, including silver or mercury. We now know that amalgam fillings don't adhere fully to the teeth and the mercury can be hazardous to your general health. Leon Springs Dental Center in San Antonio, TX offers tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. Our dental team can also remove metal fillings and apply composite resin fillings for a safer and more attractive treatment for cavities.
Am I a Candidate for Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings typically seal the decay in the tooth once it has been cleaned out by a member of our experienced team. Composite resin is a strong, durable material that may be used to address other problems with your teeth, including chips or wear on the enamel by bruxism (teeth grinding). Since the material is colored to blend with your natural teeth, tooth-colored fillings may be used on the front and back teeth for a great, natural-looking result. If you have metal fillings, talk to us about getting them taken out and replaced with tooth-colored fillings.
What Should I Expect from Tooth-Colored Filling Treatment?
Receiving a tooth-colored filling at Leon Springs Dental Center is generally a quick treatment. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to minimize your discomfort. Other sedation methods may be discussed for any fears or anxieties to keep you relaxed during the procedure. As soon as you're ready, the decayed enamel is removed with a dental drill that a member of our team will choose based on the location of the cavity and the level of decay. After the enamel is cleared away and the tooth is cleaned, the space will be filled with the composite material and set. We will smooth the composite resin so it feels comfortable and matches your natural teeth.

Nice staff, excellent dental care. Always a pleasure
Extremely friendly and professional staff! Very satisfied!!
I would like to start out by saying the Leon Springs Dental Center was by far the best experience I’ve ever encountered. The office reached out to set an appointment for some old fillings that needed to be replaced. This office has a professional and comprehensive system to where they email all your documents for e-sign before arrival. Furthermore, they use a new innovative laser procedure that allows their dentists to perform the tasks without needles or numbing medication. Doctor Diaz, and her assistant Sarah, were very informative throughout the process and worked quickly to my surprise. I was able to head right back to work with no hesitation. I would highly recommend this office for all of your future dental needs!
