Tooth-colored fillings are white fillings made of composite resins designed not just to repair cavities but are used to change the color and shape of a tooth. The material used for this type of filling is durable, making it resistant to damage when used in small fillings and can withstand pressure from chewing.
To keep your fillings looking their best, it's important to stay on top of your basic oral hygiene. Follow the steps below to keep your smile healthy!
The procedure for tooth-colored fillings is very simple and can be done in just one appointment. Your dentist will start with choosing the shade of composite that will best match the color of the tooth. Your dentist will apply a local anesthetic to the area of the procedure to numb the area and prevent discomfort. Next, the dentist will remove any decay on and within the tooth. The composite is put into place, and a curing light is used to harden the materials. The filling is shaped to fit your tooth and polished so that it is smooth and resistant to staining.
There are many advantages to tooth-colored fillings. The primary advantage is that when the color is matched to the tooth, it is almost impossible to see that the tooth ever had to be restored. Another benefit is that the fillings bond directly to the tooth’s enamel. This makes it strong and resistant to wear, meaning it can last up to five years before needing to be repaired or replaced.
