Tooth Colored Fillings are made of composites that are designed to match the color of your teeth, and depending on your budget, may make more economic sense to you than porcelain. Once these resin fillings are prepared and matched to the exact color of your teeth, they are virtually undetectable.
Tooth colored resin fillings are an obvious choice over old silver fillings, given that they can be precisely matched to the color of your teeth. Their popularity has increased over the past several years due to the maturity of the composite technology utilized, and the superiority over the older silver amalgam fillings. Today the applications are many tooth colored fillings can be used to restore a decayed tooth, repair a defect, or replace unsightly silver fillings.
Convenient and Cost Effective Cosmetic Dentistry
Unlike some procedures, tooth colored fillings can be placed in just one visit. After decay is removed, a bonding agent is brushed onto the prepared tooth and then several layers of tooth colored composite are placed and cured with a special light. Best of all, these types of resin fillings are less expensive, compared to porcelain laboratory prepared inlays (or onlays), and require only one trip to the dentist.
