Tooth-Colored Fillings

Did you know that over 92% of the population will experience a cavity at some point in their lives? These pesky spots of decay can be difficult to avoid altogether, even with regular checkups and a great at-home oral hygiene routine. If you or your child ends up falling victim to one, don’t despair – let our doctors seamlessly repair your smile with a tooth-colored filling! Crafted from high-quality composite resin material, this restorative solution offers much better benefits than traditional metal amalgam, improving both their oral health and their confident appearance. Contact Rio Dental & Orthodontics today to schedule a first appointment with our staff here in Farmers Branch or Irving, TX – we can’t wait to meet you and your loved ones!

The Tooth-Colored Filling Process

Tooth-Colored FillingHaving a new, tooth-colored filling placed takes just one appointment at our two office locations, and we’ll be sure to help children and adults alike stay calm and comfortable throughout the process. After providing the appropriate numbing agent, one of our doctors will carefully remove the damaged portion of the tooth and clean the area. Then, they will apply the composite resin material that has been chosen to match the patient’s natural smile as closely as possible. After we’ve sculpted the new addition and hardened it with a curing light, you’re finished!

In addition to their beautifully lifelike appearance, tooth-colored fillings offer other benefits to the families we see. These include:

  • Composite resin forms a direct bond with the tooth and allows for more healthy structure to be saved, which means a stronger, healthier result overall.
  • The metal-free nature of a tooth-colored filling makes it less susceptible to discomfort caused by changes in temperature.
  • The lack of metals is also good news for patients who have struggled with sensitivities or outright allergies to these materials in the past. Tooth-colored fillings are safer and more biocompatible than their traditional counterparts.
  • With a good oral hygiene routine at home and regular checkups at Rio Dental & Orthodontics, tooth-colored fillings can succeed for 15 years or even longer!

What Our Patients Say

Patient Info

  • Your Child's First Visit
  • Baby's First Appointment
  • Appointment Scheduling
  • Insurance
  • Finances
  • CareCredit

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
