Real Life Dental is proud to offer modern tooth-colored dental fillings that not only restore your teeth but also blend seamlessly with your natural smile. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made from composite resin materials that match the color of your teeth, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits.

The Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Today’s tooth-colored filling material has several advantages over traditional materials:

  • Natural Appearance: Tooth-colored fillings mimic the natural color of your teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable.
  • Conservative Restoration: These fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to traditional amalgam fillings.
  • Versatility: Tooth-colored fillings can be used for front and back teeth, offering a versatile solution for various cavities.
  • Durability: Composite resin fillings are durable and resistant to wear, providing long-lasting results.
  • Mercury-Free: Unlike silver amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings do not contain mercury, addressing concerns about potential health risks.

The Cavity-Filling Process with Tooth-Colored Fillings

Once it has been determined that a filling is needed, your dentist will remove decayed portions of the tooth and prepare it for the filling.

The tooth-colored composite resin material will be applied in layers and shaped to match the tooth’s contours, and each layer of the composite will be hardened using a special light to bond it to the tooth.

Finally, your dentist will trim and polish the filling to ensure a comfortable bite and a seamless blend with your natural tooth.

Special Care Requirements for Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

As with any dental filling, you will need to maintain regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups to keep your fillings in optimal condition. For tooth-colored fillings, you should also minimize consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages that may cause staining. If you grind your teeth, consider wearing a nightguard to protect the fillings from damage.
