Tooth-coloured fillings are white fillings that are made of composite resins. They can be used to repair cavities and other minor dental damage. The material used is durable, making it resistant to damage. You can keep your natural teeth and your restorations healthy by brushing at least twice daily, limiting sugary snacks, using a soft-bristle brush and fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and visiting us at least twice a year.
The procedure for placing a tooth-coloured filling is relatively simple. Before a filling is placed, the area will be numbed (usually by a numbing injection), the tooth is then “prepared” by removing any decay. Next, the filling material is placed into the tooth. Once it has bonded to the tooth structure, the process is complete. At Yonge & Eglinton, we provide top-quality composite fillings that are strong, effective, and look completely natural.
There are many benefits to a tooth-coloured filling. They are safer than their amalgam counterparts as they do not release any harmful metals or toxins. They look completely natural, which will improve self-confidence. Most importantly, tooth-coloured fillings are strong and long-lasting, leaving you with a healthy smile for years to come.
