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.

  • A great office to go to! I started going here not long after the office opened and have since moved to north Austin, but I still make the drive to go here. 100% worth it. Also great for those with any anxiety about going to the dentist. They make sure you’re comfortable and will even put on a Netflix show to help get you through it. Highly recommend!

The office is so clean and fancy (they have TV's on the ceiling so you can watch shows while you wait and have work done). Everyone was friendly and the Dr. did an amazing job fixing my tooth! I would highly recommend them!!

    Jutta V.
  • Recently established new insurance and was in the process of getting a problem wisdom tooth taken out when my previous dentist office denied my new insurance. In excruciating pain I walked in and I was treated with the utmost respect and care. I was assessed and requested immediate removal of the tooth, which they did. The tooth showed to need additional time to take out but the dentist managed to pull the tooth out with no issue at all and extremely quickly. I will be pulling my kids from the pediatric dentist office they are at now and having my entire family attend Kyle Parkway Dentistry.

    Ervin K.
  • I've always been really uncomfortable around dentists, and hadn't been to one in four to five years following a bad experience with a dentist in my teens. This was a great experience and I'm definitely more comfortable with going back for further treatment. They were incredibly professional and answered all my questions, and were able to offer suggestions for some of my difficulties. 10/10 will definitely go again.
