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.
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.
Leon Springs Dental Center Reviews
Even though I am the dentist here, I have to give kudos to Erin my hygienist!! I have had many others clean my teeth over the years and she did the BEST job I have had in years! Thank you Erin for doing such a great job on all of my patients. :) Dr. Walker
Carolyn & her team rock!! They always walk me thru everything so I’m more at ease!
Dr. Walker & her team are ROCK STARS ! They scheduled me in for an emergency dental procedure, and were professional from the moment I called to the time I left. I’ve been a patient for several years and I am beyond pleased with this practice.
Very efficient and personable staff. Always enjoy my visit and the service I receive.
Can’t recommend Leon Springs Dental Center enough. From the second I called to make my appointment, they had my needs at the top of their list. From asking about traumatic previous dentist appointments, what makes me feel comfortable, etc. They blew me out of the water before I even walked in their doors. The staff there is SO polite, everyone is working with each other & all have beautiful smiles! Lisa, Sabrina, Dr. Martinez all continuously made sure I was okay & explained every single thing they were doing to me and then again if I needed. Thank you Leon Springs Dental for making me comfortable and confident.
