About Composite Fillings

Treating damaged teeth or dental cavities (tooth decay) early on allows us to use more conservative treatments that are easier on you and your wallet. Tooth decay is a common concern among Belton, TX patients that occurs when bacteria in the mouth emit an acid that attacks the enamel structure. The cavities created by this must then be cleaned out and filled in to prevent the tooth from becoming infected. Teeth that are chipped or otherwise damaged also require treatment to bring balance and function back to your oral health. To treat cavities and damaged teeth, the general dentists at ACE Dental of Belton use tooth-colored composite fillings. Composite is a durable tooth-colored resin material that blends with your natural tooth enamel for a seamless outcome. Schedule an appointment with our team today to learn more about the benefits of composite fillings.

Is a Composite Filling Ideal for You?

Composite dental fillings can effectively restore front and back teeth and can be ideal for patients of all ages. At ACE Dental of Belton, we often use this restorative solution to fill small cavities and repair minor areas of damage, such as chipped or broken teeth, as well as teeth worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). Composite resin is colored to blend naturally with surrounding enamel for a beautiful, seamless smile. For some patients, our team can even replace older metal fillings with tooth-colored composite material.

How Are Dental Fillings Placed?

Our skilled team typically places composite fillings within a single dental visit. To keep you comfortable, we'll numb the tooth with local anesthetic and may administer sedation dentistry if you feel anxious about receiving dental care. We'll carefully remove areas of tooth decay or damaged tooth structure. Once we've disinfected the tooth, we'll select the shade of composite material that most closely matches your natural enamel and will fill the tooth with that resin. We use a curing light to harden the material in place. We'll also contour the filling and polish it to create a smooth, even feel.

Caring for Your Composite

After your visit, you can generally return to your normal routine, though you may experience slight sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures over the next couple of days. If you notice that your new composite filling feels high or uneven after the numbness wears away, please let us know so that we can get you back in for a quick adjustment. Composite fillings should be cared for just like natural teeth by properly brushing and flossing every day. Our ACE Dental of Belton team will continually monitor your filling and tooth when you visit for routine dental check-ups.

Are Fillings Covered by Insurance?

Composite fillings are common restorative dental options that are often covered in part by dental insurance plans. Before your visit, our insurance specialist will review your benefits and help you maximize your coverage. If you have personal expenses or do not carry insurance, we can help you select a convenient payment method for your care. ACE Dental of Belton strives to make treatment affordable for all patients and accepts several flexible payment options, including medical financing plans.
