While amalgam fillings are traditionally made from metal alloys, tooth-colored fillings are crafted from resin that’s applied directly to the tooth, shaped, and cured. They have several advantages over amalgam:

The Process of Getting a Tooth-Colored Filling

Tooth-colored fillings usually require less than an hour from sitting in the chair to the final result. That means your treatment will only take one visit!

First, your tooth will be numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure you feel nothing during the procedure. Next, your dentist will use their instruments to clear away the decay in your tooth and create a small indention for the resin to cling to. The tooth is then washed with an anti-bacterial solution to kill germs and keep the area clean. Finally, the dental resin that has been matched to your tooth color is applied to the hole and then cured with an ultraviolet light. Then, your dentist will remove any rough edges or extra resin and use special tools to smooth the surface of the tooth. This last step is important to blend the restoration into your natural enamel.
