Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration used to protect the structure and function of a tooth damaged by trauma or tooth decay. Fillings are versatile treatments as they can prevent cracked or worn-down teeth from incurring further damage, or seal a tooth after a root canal procedure.
Historically, the most common types of filling were either gold or an amalgamation of different metals. Although still in use in many dental offices, these types of fillings can present several issues, namely being very noticeable.
A tooth-colored filling is very much what it sounds like – a filling made out of a material that matches the color of natural teeth. These types of fillings are made from a composite resin, plastic analog, or a ceramic material that can match the color of your teeth for a seamless restoration.
