A dental filling aims at treating damaged teeth to restore its functionality, structure, and aesthetics. Conventional dental fillings used materials such as Amalgam, Gold, Silver, etc. Such fillings are no longer in use today as the dental filling material would either wear out, resulting in discomfort or may not appear appealing. Therefore, dentists came out with a natural way of restoring teeth's integrity and function by using aesthetic fillings.
What are Tooth-colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings or white fillings are manufactured by using composite resin material. As they are made of natural substances that do not stand as a threat to our teeth's natural composition, it causes no harm to the surrounding gum and teeth structures. The filling material is highly durable and reduces the chances of decay as well. Tooth-colored fillings are generally recommended when teeth require no major reconstruction.
Natural-looking fillings like tooth-colored fillings are very much in demand as they cannot be noticed, instantly.

- They can reduce the chances of infection.
- The filling material is exceptionally biocompatible.
- Its natural appearance makes it difficult to notice.
Inserting a tooth-colored filling is a simple procedure to remove cavities and restore teeth functionality. During the procedure, the dentist would numb the area surrounding the cavity to help ease off the pain. Once the tooth is prepared, the infected enamel is cleared away with a dental drill. The cleaned out area will be filled with the composite resin and crafted to shape. The filling material would be polished to ensure a smooth finish for the newly restored tooth.
