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.

  • My wife had been in a few days before for a wisdom tooth extraction, but it was nice that I was greeted by name as soon as I walked in. It was my first time in to see Dr. D and his team, so that’s what I’ll be sharing about here. New patient set up via iPad was easy and took just a few minutes. Was only able to check a couple of emails before being seen. Cecily (sp?) was friendly and well-spoken as she walked me through step of my exam. Started by stepping into a quick 360 X-ray, then escorted me to my room, which was cozy and comfortably lit, creating a relaxing atmosphere compared to dental offices filled with fluorescent, bright lights. Large flat screen Roku TV on the wall was accompanied by a smaller TV mounted on the ceiling for me to indulge in later during my cleaning. After checking my blood pressure with a nifty wrist-based monitor, Cecily took four more brief X-rays, followed by actual photos (never had that done before) - all of which she reviewed with me before Dr. D arrived to do my cleaning. At that point, over-the-ear headphones were placed on my head, and I was allowed to focus on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee while the duo proceeded to clean my teeth. Before I knew it, cleaning was done. Dr. D talked me through the current state of my oral health (all good! Other than the fact I grind my teeth =P ), then Cecily flossed my teeth and I was through! Dr. Ds wife is part of his team (apologize for not remembering her name) and talked me through considering a mouth guard and payment options. She is super sweet and extremely empathetic. I’ll conclude this review by sharing this: as soon as I sat down in my car after the appointment, I noticed the peace of mind I felt, having found a local healthcare professional just minutes from our home that we truly enjoy, appreciate and trust. Not saying they’re perfect, better still that when they miss they’ll try to make it right. If you’re looking for a dentist for yourself and/or your children, Kyle Parkway Dentistry - yes, the one opposite the donut shop! - is absolutely worth checking out.

  • I found Kyle Parkway Dentistry on google and after reading reviews decided to go there and I’m so glad I did! I moved from out of state and needed to become established with a dentist again. The staff is really friendly and makes you feel welcome. The hygienist was gentle which is really important to me. I’m lucky to say that I found my dentist on the first try!!!

  • PLEASE READ ENTIRE REVIEWDR. D is the best dentist I have ever gone to!I can't give him enough stars!I have a ton of dental problems and truly fear doctors and dentists. I will also admit to being a big baby when it comes to the dental pain. Dr. D, his wife and staff were and are very compassionate and caring. They provide excellent service at a very affordable rate. I could not be any more pleased and happy with the services they have provide my family and myself. My wife was Dr. D's first patient, he did a lot of work on my mother-in-law, my nephew, and brother. The only negative thing I could say about Dr. D is that there is only one of him. I will never go to another dentist.

  • After a very bad experience at a different dentist in Kyle I was skeptical at my first visit at this dentistry, but the team at Kyle Parkway Dentistry just won me over by their kindness, friendliness and professionalism. I had the impression at my first (and second visit) that they really wanted to help me, had the best in mind for me and were not only interested in my money. I will stay at this dentist because I trust him, I believe he is honest and he does a really great job! The whole team is just absolutely wonderful, super friendly and professional. I have never thought I would say this,... -- but it is actually FUN to go there!

  • Macy and Doc Z are wonderful people, they treated me very graciously and listened to all the questions I had. I would recommend every patient get treated by them. I will be back for sure.

  • The environment is pleasant and the staff is very professional and attentive. I really appreciate the patience and clear communication throughout the office. From the front desk to the exam room through to the review of the treatment plans the experience has been bearable for a person such as myself with a long standing phobia of dentistry.

  • Before I make an appointment, I looked at many positive reviews on this place. On my appointment, I was delighted, because the reviews are true. The place is clean, modern, and with advanced technology. There is also a small play corner for children. The staff are so nice and the doctor is gentle. You can watch tv while they clean your teeth to keep your mind away. From my past experience with other dentist in other states, this one, they treat you nicely and with dignity. They open late, so it is perfect for after work. At the end of my check up, I received oral-b goodies and take home whitening gift as first time patient. I am happy and will comeback for my routine check up. I also refer my whole family to go to this place. Keep up the great work!
