Tooth-colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are very popular in cosmetic dentistry. Tooth structure can be destroyed due to dental decay. Tooth-colored fillings bond directly to teeth.

White tooth-colored fillings, also called composite or bonded fillings, bond directly to teeth and hence require less healthy tooth structure to be removed to hold the filling in place. They are used to restore the natural appearance of decayed or previously filled teeth.

Restoring a tooth with composite fillings involves the following steps:

  • Removal of the decay portion of the toothCuring-Light-for-tooth-colored-fillings
  • Conditioning the tooth surface
  • Adding tooth colored composite restoration material
  • Curing the material with a high-intensity curing light

Tooth-colored composite material is commonly used in Cosmetic Dentistry because they are:

  • Natural looking
  • Mercury free
  • Strong
  • Biocompatible
  • Provide a better seal
