What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

When teeth become decayed, small cavities can form. This tiny damage to your teeth must be repaired before it gets worse, which is where tooth-colored fillings come in. This dental restoration is a composite resin that is shaded to match the natural color of your teeth. The tooth-colored filling material feels like your enamel, and it effectively strengthens and preserves parts of your smile that are decayed.

The Procedure for Tooth-Colored Fillings

Once one of our experts has decided that tooth-colored fillings are the right treatment for you, you’ll come into our office for a quick and easy appointment. First, we will ensure that you’re numb in the affected area, helping you remain completely comfortable. We also offer sedation dentistry for a greater sense of relaxation. Next, we will prepare the affected tooth by removing any decayed or damaged portions. We will place our special dental resin over the area, curing it with a handheld light, which only takes less than a minute. Lastly, your filling is polished and shaped to match your natural smile and create a comfortable bite.

The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

We offer tooth-colored fillings instead of traditional amalgam (metal) ones because of their amazing advantages, including:

  • Appearance: One of the more obvious benefits, tooth-colored fillings compliment your smile with a nice white shade instead of dark, silver amalgam.
  • Dental health: Composite resin bonds to teeth, which means we won’t need to remove as much of your natural tooth structure compared to metal fillings.
  • Mercury-free: Amalgam fillings contain mercury, which is a toxic material. While a low amount, most people prefer tooth-colored fillings. They are also a great option for those with a metal allergy or sensitivity.
  • Comfort: Metal expands and contracts with changes in temperature, which is why those with amalgam fillings experience far more sensitivity than patients with tooth-colored ones.
  • Durability: While amalgam fillings are durable, tooth-colored fillings can last over 10 years with proper care like brushing, flossing, and visiting our office regularly.
