Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are the ideal cosmetic dental treatment for patients who take pride in the appearance of their teeth. This type of filling is extremely adaptable. A composite filling can change the color, structure or shape of a tooth. Although composite fillings mostly serve as a restorative treatment, they are also a practical way of improving the look of teeth. If you have severely discolored teeth, composite fillings can restore the color balance. You will have a much more natural smile without anyone noticing that you have had dental work. The composite filling is applied to the surface of the existing tooth and then filed down and polished into shape. A special tool is used to complete the process in layers. This allows the composite filling to harden with each application.

What is a Composite Resin?

Composite resin is a mixture of materials (usually plastic and glass) used to fill cavities, change the color of the tooth or reshape a tooth. In some cases, composite resin is also used to reduce gaps between the teeth. Composite resin does not typically last as long silver fillings when used in teeth with large cavities. However, composite resin is just as durable for filling smaller cavities.

 

 

                        As the material is a resin, your dentist can match the color of your filling very closely to your natural tooth color. From a cosmetic point of view, this one attribute alone makes composite resin the far superior choice. Patients with composite resin fillings are able to smile freely without feeling self- conscious about noticeable fillings.

Cost of this procedure:

  Cost of composite restorations can range from $150-$400/tooth depending on size and location of decay. If decay is extensive than you might need Root canal or even extraction. Your PPO insurance usually pays portion of this and you are responsible for your copay. If you do not have insurance, we offer in-house Dental Savers plan that can help you to save on this procedure as well!

                               If you are self-conscious about the shape or color of your teeth, contact Kyle Parkway Dentistry today to book an appointment. Composite fillings may change the way you see your smile.

  • I changed dental offices due to the fact that my insurance at work changed and I am glad that it happened. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Kyle parkway dentistry. The staff were amazing from the time I walked through the door until I left. Everybody was so kind and friendly. They made me feel at home in every way. I usually get nervous at the dentist but this was a great experience for me. If anybody is looking for a new dentist office I suggest trying out Kyle parkway dentistry. I believe it would be great for the whole family.

  • OK so I am one of those people that gets super nervous for the dentist— especially if I need any treatments done. I cannot say enough how much I would recommend Kyle Parkway Dentistry— I saw Dr. Z and she is AMAZING. And the dental assistant Katherine (I hope I’m spelling her name right! Also, sad she is moving! :( ) was also amazing!! The two of them made me feel instantly more calm and relaxed and made my treatment as comfortable as possible. Dr. Z talked me through everything and made me feel so relaxed. (Not to mention they got everything done pretty darn quick!) I love that she listens to my questions and answers with compassion and knowledge— they genuinely wanted me to be as comfortable as possible, and that means everything!!! Also the front desk girls are so sweet and helpful. I recommend and will continue seeing Dr. Z! And definitely won’t be as nervous from now on :). Thank you thank you thank you!!

  • I posted the review below about 5-6 days ago. And I stand corrected. They quickly addressed my issue and mailed me a check. Thank you for that. This speaks volumes for you to go back and do this. I greatly appreciate that you took the time out to do this.

    The staff was great and sweet back a few years ago when I went. The only issue I had was with the financial check out person. I have private dental insurance through my employer. My insurance had covered my visit 100% that day. I needed a lot of future work done so they made a three visit plan and again my insurance would cover about 80-90% of total cost on the future visits. However, their accounting or financial check out person really pressured me on paying something towards my future cost 🤦🏻‍♀️. I didn’t see the need for that since we still had to wait and bill my insurance in the future. Anyway long story short I felt pressured and I put some money towards my future cost. I never went back for that same reason and when asked about being reimbursed they asked for me to go back in and take my debit card used at that time to have it reimbursed. I’ve changed banks since then and didn’t feel like going through any trouble so I had to just consider it a loss and move on. So again great front staff and dental staff it was just the not so pleasant pressure of putting money towards future cost when insurance hasn’t even been billed yet or dental work hasn’t been done.

  • positive review 

    First of all I have anxiety issues & am terrified of dentists. But as I was called to the back the dental assistant (Cecily) made me feel right @ ease. Normally X-rays are very uncomfortable but the technique they used was easy & quick. Dr Dholariya explained to me what my options were on what I needed done and would pretty much walk me through the process as we go along. Definitely would recommend this practice!

  • Dr. D made me and my daughter (6) feel relaxed and comfortable. He really talks to you and tries to find common interested to help you feel at ease. They staff was warm and welcoming. There was lots of explanations of what work was being done and what I can do at home to improve my oral health. They have state of the art equipment and really use technology to help you learn about your teeth and dental hygiene. I would highly recommend Kyle Parkway Dentistry.
