What are Natural Color Fillings?

Natural color fillings, also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings, are dental restorations made from a durable composite resin material that closely matches the color and appearance of natural tooth enamel. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, which are conspicuous and contain mercury, natural color fillings are virtually invisible when placed, providing a discreet and aesthetic solution for repairing cavities and minor tooth damage.

The Natural Color Filling Process:

1.  Consultation: During your dental examination, Dr. Collier will assess the extent of decay or damage to your tooth and determine if a natural color filling is the right treatment option for you.
2.  Preparation: To prepare the tooth for filling, Dr. Collier will remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and clean the area to ensure optimal bonding of the composite resin material.
3.  Placement: The tooth-colored composite resin material will be applied to the prepared tooth and shaped to restore its natural shape and function. Multiple layers of the resin may be applied and hardened using a special curing light.
4.  Finishing: Once the filling material has been placed and cured, Dr. Collier will polish the filling to smooth out any rough edges and ensure a natural-looking result that blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.

Benefits of Natural Color Fillings:

•   Aesthetic appeal: Natural color fillings closely match the color and appearance of natural tooth enamel, providing a seamless and natural-looking restoration that enhances the beauty of your smile.
•   Preservation of healthy tooth structure: Composite resin fillings require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure, preserving the strength and integrity of your teeth.
•   Biocompatibility: Composite resin is a safe and biocompatible material that bonds securely to the tooth, reducing the risk of sensitivity or allergic reactions.
•   Versatility: Natural color fillings can be used to repair cavities, chips, cracks, or other minor dental issues, providing a versatile and effective solution for restoring the health and aesthetics of your smile.
