Fillings or restoration is the most common dental treatment or dental work in San Antonio that a person will experience. Fillings and dental work are needed if you have decay in your tooth, also known as a cavity. There are three main types of fillings or restorations a patient can choose from: composite, amalgam and a Cerec restoration.
Composite is a material used for fillings that are tooth colored. Composite fillings, the most common type of dental work in San Antonio, offer patients aesthetic restorations that are also very functional.
One type of dental work in San Antonio that Dr. John Moore, DDS takes a stand against is Amalgam fillings, or silver fillings. When a patient receives amalgam fillings corrosion and color leakage occur over time, which actually changes the color of the tooth to a dark gray color. The safety of amalgam fillings still remains in question because of the mercury that is used to mix the alloy. Since the safety of this material is still up in the air, here at CDA we do not offer amalgam fillings to our patients to ensure optimal overall health. San Antonio cosmetic dentists ensure that all dental work consists of safe procedures.
Cerec fillings or restorations are another great aesthetic option for patients needing large fillings or extensive dental work. Our dental work professionals remove the cavity first, and then take a digital photo of the tooth, and then custom design the fillings. The Cerec machine custom shapes the porcelain veneers
with advanced technology to perfectly fit the filling into the tooth.
With new technology highly aesthetic and functional fillings and dental work are now available to our patients. Since we are a dentist office utilizing cosmetic dentistry, aesthetics are just as important to us as restoring tooth function. There is no reason why in this day and age that anyone has to know you have had dental work, besides you and your dentist. To learn more about dental work in San Antonio
