What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

In essence, dental fillings are mixtures used to repair teeth. Their main role is to “fill” the holes left by tooth decay (i.e., cavities). By doing so, they protect treated areas from harmful bacteria and debris.

Given these facts, tooth-colored fillings resemble enamel. They’re customized to blend seamlessly with adjacent teeth. That way, friends and family won’t even notice your former cavity. The effect stems from the material of these fillings – composite resin. This substance is metal-free and matches your smile’s qualities. Therefore, it hardly ever causes allergies and hides tooth damage perfectly.

The Process of Getting a Tooth-Colored Filling

Thankfully, getting a tooth-colored filling is a simple matter. The process is short and moves quickly. In fact, it only takes a one-hour dental visit.

There are several steps to a filling treatment. First, our dentists will numb your mouth with an anesthetic. (This act keeps the procedure from hurting.) They’ll then remove the problem tooth’s decayed enamel and clean its innards. From there, they’ll wrap up by applying the actual filling.

Once you’ve got the filling(s), there won’t be much to do. We’ll only make a few last-minute changes so everything looks good. Afterward, your tooth should be as strong as ever and ready for the world!
