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.
Leon Springs Dental Center Reviews
Amazing dental office that I now consider my regular dentist. Thorough, considerate and very professional, great team!
We have gone to many dentists in the past, even a family member, and this is by far the best experience we have had. Office staff is amandine and the dentists and hygienists are kind and caring
The sweetest people work here. I have been terrified of the dentist forever from bad experiences before so i came into this appointment with a lot of fear and although i still would rather not be at the dentist the staff was so amazing and made me feel comfortable the whole time.
Highly recommended Definitely a group of professional team
I have been in great hands with Dr. Walker and her staff since I first started with them over 5 years ago. Everything from the customer service, genuine care, communication, patience, and even their charitable works was been top notch and very comforting throughout my time with them. If you are reading these reviews, you are probably looking for a dentist. Stop scrolling and book an appointment. You have found what you are looking for. 💯
