What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored or composite fillings combine durable ceramic and plastic filling materials to treat cavities and tooth decay. Cavities are small holes in your teeth that form due to plaque buildup and tooth decay. We remove the infected tooth material, then place a composite resin tooth-colored filling to protect the tooth and prevent chipping and cracking.
While silver and gold fillings can change the color of your teeth, tooth-colored fillings retain your original tooth structure and color.
Tooth-Colored Fillings Placement Process
The tooth-colored fillings placement begins with your dentist removing the decaying tooth enamel. After creating a space for the filling, they’ll apply an anesthetic or numbing agent before beginning the filling placement.
As your dentist implements the dental filling, they cure each layer with a special light to bind the substance to your teeth. When the process is complete, your filling fits securely in your tooth, restoring its look and functionality.
