What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin material that we match closely to the color and shade of your natural teeth. Their aesthetic advantage makes them an increasingly popular choice for those seeking a discreet and visually appealing solution for treating cavities.

What Are the Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings?

  • They Are Natural-Looking: Composite fillings can be matched closely to the color of your existing teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable. That makes them popular for repairing cavities in the front teeth, ensuring your dental work does not detract from your smile.
  • They Bond to the Tooth Structure: A tooth-colored filling bonds directly to the tooth’s natural structure. That helps prevent leakage and fortifies the treated tooth, reducing the risk of tooth fracture or decay under the filling.
  • They Preserve Tooth Structure: When preparing a tooth for a white filling, we need to move less of its structure compared to a traditional filling. That is beneficial for the treated tooth's strength, integrity, and long-term health.
  • They Are Versatile: The composite resin filling material does more than treat cavities - it offers a cosmetic dentistry solution to enhance your smile. White fillings can help repair chipped or broken teeth, close minor gaps between teeth, and correct minor tooth imperfections, delivering seamless results.
  • They Are Long-Lasting: Composite fillings have been reinvented and improved, with today's modern filling material providing a durable tooth restoration solution. With proper care and maintenance, a tooth-colored filling can continue to enhance your smile for many years to come.

What Is the Tooth-Colored Fillings Procedure?

We will start your tooth-colored filling process by carefully selecting a shade that is a close match to your natural teeth. Next, Dr. Chao will numb the area for your comfort and remove any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth.

Dr. Chao will clean the area and place the composite resin material. Depending on the size of the cavity, he may need to apply the filling in layers, sculpting it to match your natural tooth structure. He will use a curing light to harden the filling material, creating a solid bond with the tooth structure.

Dr. Chao will make any needed adjustments to your restoration to ensure it is comfortable and does not interfere with your bite. The last step is polishing the filling to a smooth finish, leaving you with beautifully natural results.
