Tooth Coloured Fillings and Restorations
Tooth fillings coloured to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings. Composite Resin Dental Fillings are made of a plastic dental resin, are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile.
Composite resin fillings are applied in thin layers, and slowly built up to form the complete filling. A bright dental light will harden each layer before the next is applied.
Once your filling is completed, your dentist will use a special paper, articulating paper, to adjust the height of your dental filling and that your bite remains correct. Your tooth is then polished.
