San Antonio tooth fillings are one of the most common types of restorative dentistry
at Cosmetic Dental Associates. When you have a cavity, Dr. Moore or Dr. Ma can use either a composite filling or a custom CEREC filling to repair it. Key benefits of our fillings include:
- Stopping tooth decay and preventing its spread
- Making biting and chewing more comfortable
- Restoring your tooth in an aesthetically pleasing way – without metal
- Helping you put forth your most confident and bold smile
If you have old silver fillings, they can make your smile shine in a bad way. Visit one of our offices for removal of your metal tooth fillings and replacement using beautiful tooth-colored fillings.

Enjoy the Benefits of Composite Fillings
Fillings are usually needed if you have decay in your tooth, also known as a cavity. Amalgam fillings, or what you might know as silver fillings, are a mix of mercury and other metals. Some patients are concerned about small amounts of mercury entering their body, so proactive dentists like Dr. John A. Moore and Dr. Ruiwen Ma have readily embraced composite tooth fillings. Since the safety of amalgam fillings is still in question, we do not offer them to our patients.
Composite tooth fillings are made of resin and are mercury-free. They’re matched to the shade of your natural teeth, so they won’t affect the beauty of your smile. There are size limitations to composite tooth fillings, so if your cavity or the damage to your tooth is more severe, we can use a dental crown to restore your tooth.
We Offer Many Types of Fillings For Your Convenience
CEREC fillings or restorations are another great aesthetic option for patients needing large fillings or extensive dental work. Our professionals remove the decay first and then take a digital photo of the tooth before custom-designing the filling. The CEREC machine then shapes the porcelain restoration with advanced technology to perfectly fit the filling into the tooth.
Since our dental practice focuses on cosmetic dentistry, aesthetics are just as important to us as restoring the use of your teeth. With new technology, dental work that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional is now available to all our patients.
