Fillings

At Admire Dental located in Haltom City, TX, we understand our patients’ desire to have a beautiful smile. They can rest assured that their dental needs will be taken care of using the best treatment possible under the most caring of conditions.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

A tooth-colored or composite filling is used to repair a tooth that is decayed, cracked or fractured. Composite fillings are white or tooth-colored. Because they are matched to the color of your existing teeth, tooth-colored fillings are perfect for front teeth or visible areas of the back teeth. Composite fillings are not permanent and may have to be replaced; however, they can be very durable if cared for properly which could result in giving you a long lasting and beautiful smile.

How Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Done?

The entire procedure depends on the location of the tooth and the extent of the decay. When placing white fillings, numbing the area being restored is not always required; however, the dentist will need to numb the area if the decay has progressed beneath the enamel of the tooth and into the dentin coating that surrounds the nerve. Once the decay is removed, the tooth is cleaned and an acidic solution is placed on the area being repaired. A bonding material is then placed into the open pores of the tooth and cured. The curing allows the bonding material to stick to the tooth-colored filling. The filling material is then placed inside the tooth. After shaping the tooth colored filling, the material is hardened using a high curing light. When the mixture is hard, the doctor will check your bite to make sure your filling fits properly.

How Do I Care for My New Tooth-Colored Fillings?

At Admire Dental, our staff knows just how important it is for you to maintain the beautiful smile tooth-colored fillings give; therefore, before you leave, you will be given instructions at the end of your treatment. We recommend you exercise good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth, maintaining a healthy diet and scheduling regular dental and cleaning appointments with our office.

Metal-Free Fillings

Metal-free fillings are popular because they restore your tooth while blending naturally with the rest of your smile. At Admire Dental, the doctor will decide whether metal-free or composite fillings should be used based on the location of the cavity. Because metal-free fillings can be color-matched, they’re usually better for your front teeth or any other highly visible teeth. They can be used to mend other areas of your smile, such as chipped, broken or cracked teeth. Metal-free dental fillings allow the doctor to suggest the best alternative based on your oral health.

Our Happy Patients

"Really great staff!!! I walked in with pain and left feeling so much better. They took x-rays with my little girl safely in the next room where I could hear her watching TV. Then the doctor came in and gave me a treatment plan, which includes me seeing an oral surgeon and overdue cleaning. The staff is so KNOWLEDGEABLE and FRIENDLY they all get an A++ from me. I definitely recommend going there for dental care."

"My boyfriend needed emergency dental care due to an unfortunate cricket accident. Via 1800 dentist, Amire Dental not knowing the full extent of his dental needs, was able and willing to see him as a new patient within 1 hour of our call on a Saturday afternoon when most dentist offices were closed. The staff and dentist were sympathetic and made him feel at ease immediately. The office was pleasant and clean. Each room had a tv that included Netflix and an array of viewing options for the patients. Overall it was a wonderful experience and Admire Dental is now his official dentist."
