A tooth-colored filling is a dental filling that is designed to match the aesthetics of a natural tooth. Dental fillings are used to fill cavities or holes in the teeth that have been caused by dental decay. Also known as composite resins, these types of fillings provide solid durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand the pressure of chewing. If you need a dental filling, Dr. Lis Bradley, DDS can discuss your options.
The procedure for a tooth-colored filling can be completed in one appointment. Because tooth-colored fillings bond directly to tooth enamel, they are strong and resist the wear and tear that comes with chewing food. To keep your white fillings looking their best, you’ll need to maintain a proper oral hygiene regimen by brushing at least twice a day for two minutes, flossing for at least once a day, and visiting us twice a year for routine dental cleanings.
