What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Cavities are small holes in teeth that are the result of decay. The job of a filling is to fill in those spots so the decay does not worsen and so debris and outside stimuli cannot sneak into the cavity to cause irritation and infection. A cavity can allow a slightly damaged tooth to regain its full strength and pain-free function.

Tooth-colored fillings repair cavities with the use of a composite resin that is color-matched to blend in with the surrounding dentition. The resin has is completely metal-free and has a reputation for working well within the human body.
