Understanding Tooth Colored Fillings

A tooth-colored filling utilizes a smooth glass and plastic composite resin to fill cavities caused by tooth decay. Unlike traditional silver fillings, this resin bonds directly with the tooth enamel, offering both structural integrity and a natural appearance. During the procedure, your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic, remove any decay, apply a bonding solution, and fill the cavity with composite resin. The resin is then shaped to ensure proper function and appearance before being cured with a special UV light, drying in minutes.

Comparing Tooth Colored Fillings & Traditional Silver Fillings

The primary advantage of tooth-colored fillings lies in their appearance, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth. Additionally, composite resin fillings offer a safer alternative, free from the potential risks associated with mercury exposure. Unlike silver fillings, which may take hours to fully dry, tooth-colored fillings dry quickly, allowing you to resume normal activities immediately.

Research indicates that tooth-colored fillings are as durable as their silver counterparts, with the added benefit of easier detection of any potential issues such as breakage or decay.
