Tooth Coloured Fillings

What is a tooth coloured filling?

A dental filling restores the function and appearance of weakened or decayed teeth. Removing the decay from a damaged tooth is only part of the treatment procedure.

The hole left by the cavity must be filled and sealed as well. This is where dental fillings come in handy. Dental fillings can be made from different materials, one of which is composite resin.

Composite resins, white fillings, or tooth-coloured fillings are popular for the natural look they offer. They’re ideal restoration options for small to mid-size fillings.

Composite resin is durable, so it can be applied to either the front or back teeth. Since the colour of the filling can be blended with the rest of the natural teeth, it becomes almost invisible. People won’t be able to tell that you had your tooth fixed.

What happens in a filling procedure?

  • Your dentist talks to you about potential options for fixing your tooth or teeth. They explain the different types of fillings available, and which one is most suitable for your case.
  • During your filling appointment, your dentist applies a local anesthetic to numb the area and surrounding structures.
  • The decay is taken out of the tooth. Then, the area is cleaned and dried.
  • Afterward, your dentist applies a bonding material to the hole. Then, they place the filling material in thin layers.
  • Each layer is hardened using a special light. The filling is also shaped as it’s applied.
  • Finally, your dentist polishes your teeth and checks your bite to ensure your filling feels comfortable.

Eating and drinking are best avoided until the anesthesia wears off. You may experience sensitivity in the area for a few days. If it persists longer than that, don’t hesitate to contact your dental team for assistance.

Benefits of a tooth-coloured filling

  • Natural-looking. Tooth-coloured fillings replicate the natural teeth. Composite resin can be blended to match the shade of your teeth.
  • Durable. Tooth-coloured fillings can last for up to 15 years with proper care.
  • Cost-effective. They cost less than other filling materials, such as gold.
  • Preserves natural teeth. The remaining natural tooth structure does not need to be filed down to apply the fillings.
  • Convenient. In most cases, the filling application can be completed in a single visit because it’s done directly on the teeth. There’s no need to fabricate the restoration at the dental laboratory.

How much is a tooth-coloured filling?

The price of a filling depends on the following:

  • Condition of the tooth
  • Location of the filling
  • Number of teeth that need to be treated
  • Procedures necessary before the filling application
  • Complexity of the entire procedure

Little Italy Dental was a great visit for me. I contacted 3 dental places and you called me back, sent me the forms to complete prior to the appointment and then came in for the appointment. Very thorough, courteous and patience. I do not like going to the dentist but I have too and felt comfortable at this dental practice.

Thank you. See you again. Take care.

Had a great experience here getting orthodontic work done. I was a bit of a tricky case because I lost retainers that were approx 15 years old, and Ramona Dico was super patient trying to get the right remodeling done. She was diligent in getting it corrected when the fit wasn’t quite right the first time I had a fitting, without making me feel like a difficult patient. I recommend this clinic. Thanks so much!
