Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to repair teeth that are decayed, damaged, missing tooth structure, or worn down. When you choose tooth-colored fillings, you will experience these important benefits:
- A naturally good-looking restoration that blends in seamlessly with your smile
- Metal-free results so you don’t have to worry about a metallic taste in your mouth
- Easy, quick treatment taking only one appointment
Your tooth-colored filling treatment begins with the application of an etching material, which creates tiny pore-like openings to retain the filling material. Next, the bonding cement is applied. This is followed by the filling material, known as composite. Composite is a liquid resin with qualities that allow it to be color-matched to the shade of your tooth and sculpted to mold perfectly with the contours of your tooth. Finally, the liquid composite is hardened with a blue curing light.
Tooth-colored fillings are the perfect choice if you need a filling, but you don’t want the filling to be noticeable. They are also excellent for replacing any worn-out, crumbly metal fillings.
