Tooth-colored fillings are sometimes known as composite or white fillings. These virtually unnoticeable restorations can be used for a variety of dental issues including:
- Repairing fractures or decay
- Changing size, color or shape of a tooth
- Closing gaps
- Repairing chips
Tooth-colored fillings appear natural in color and offer 85-95% of the strength of the original tooth. Best of all, they can be applied in one visit.
The process of placing tooth-colored fillings is typically fast and easy. Numbing is sometimes not needed; however, in cases of significant decay, local anesthesia will be used as the tooth is cleaned out. The filling will be applied and shaped to look just like the natural tooth and hardened with a curing light.
