Tooth-colored fillings are an aesthetic and reliable restorative option for decayed, damaged, or stained teeth. The material that makes up the tooth-colored filling is white composite resin your dentist matches to your smile’s natural shade.
Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics in Aurora, CO, offers customized tooth-colored fillings to patients of all ages.
Dental Issues Tooth-Colored Fillings Can Fix
Unlike silver amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings look natural.
These white composite fillings can also accomplish the following:
- Restore a broken or chipped tooth
- Repair a decayed tooth
- Improve cosmetic flaws
- Whiten a stained tooth
- Restore a cracked or fractured tooth
- Fill in a gap between teeth
- Alter the shape or size of a tooth
- Stop dental deterioration
- Create a whiter, more attractive smile
Tooth-Colored Fillings in Aurora, CO
Dr. John Chen and our team start by discussing the patient’s oral health needs and aesthetic goals. We then create the shade of composite resin that will seamlessly blend in with surrounding teeth.
Your dentist then carefully applies an adhesive and several thin layers of composite, building up the tooth. Once Dr. Chen places the filling, he hardens it using a special curing light. We finish up by polishing your tooth.
