Whether we are repairing a cavity or correcting a chipped tooth, a composite filling can be a long-term and affordable solution that provides a seamless match to the natural shape and color of your tooth.

What is a Composite Resin?

Composite resin is a white or tooth colored material used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks or fractures. They offer improved aesthetics over silver fillings. In addition, the natural blend of composite resin to your teeth makes it an excellent option for restoring or improving front teeth that are more visible. Your composite filling is designed to last for many years. However, it should be properly cared for in order to retain the best results. We educate patients on the importance of good oral hygiene, proper eating habits, and regular dental visits that can extend the life of your new fillings.

At Tuscany Dental Care, a composite filling may be used to address the following:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

We can place your composite filling in a single appointment. After the area is numb, Dr. Duque will first remove areas of decay if needed. Next, the space is cleaned and prepared for the filling material. Composite resin is carefully placed in layers and is shaped, hardened and polished to create a natural and beautiful outcome. If you experience mild sensitivity after a composite filling is placed, this is only temporary and should subside shortly.

Contact Tuscany Dental Care today to schedule your composite filling appointment. We have a reputable restorative and cosmetic dentist who is ready to improve you smile in San Antonio. Remember that neglecting to treat a cavity can lead to painful symptoms and the potential need for a root canal or tooth extraction.
