What Is a Tooth-Colored Filling?

Instead of using metal to fill cavities, Dr. Courter uses a tooth-colored composite resin that has proven to be a safer, more effective, and aesthetically pleasing restorative option for repairing teeth that have been damaged by decay. This substance is biocompatible, so it bonds directly to the tooth, allowing patients to achieve long-lasting results while preserving more of the natural tooth structure. Tooth-colored fillings are customized to be the exact color of your teeth, so they will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile!

The Tooth-Colored Filling Process

In most cases, tooth-colored fillings can be placed in just one appointment. First, Dr. Courter will numb the area with a local anesthetic if needed. He will then remove the decayed portion of your tooth. After selecting the perfect shade of composite resin to match your tooth, it will be molded until it is the proper size and shape. Lastly, final adjustments will be made, and Dr. Courter will polish the tooth in order to give it a beautiful, finished appearance.
