Amalgam fillings set the standard in tooth decay and damage treatment for decades, but in recent years, dentists have shifted away from amalgam in favor of the more cosmetic and durable, tooth-colored, composite resin fillings. In addition to being exactly shaded to match the existing dental structure, they’re a more conservative solution.

What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings are customized restorations made from composite resin. This color-matched material does not react to temperature changes and directly bonds with teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are an ideal restoration option for preserving natural dental structure for years. They also allow for a reduced risk for further dental damage.
What is the Process of Receiving Tooth-Colored Fillings?
The restorative dentistry treatment process with tooth-colored fillings is quick, painless, and simple. Typically, it requires just one appointment. We may remove a small amount of enamel to prepare the tooth for treatment. Then, we apply the composite resin in a malleable form to the tooth, shaping and hardening the tooth-colored material into position using a specialized curing light.
