Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Composite resin fillings match the natural colour of teeth and are used to repair cavities while maintaining a natural appearance.

“Tooth-coloured fillings,” also known as “composite resin fillings,” are dental restorations used to repair cavities or damaged teeth while maintaining a natural appearance. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, tooth-coloured fillings are made from a composite resin material that matches the colour of the patient’s natural teeth, making them less noticeable.

Key points about tooth-coloured fillings:

Cavity Repair

Tooth-coloured fillings are used to fill cavities (dental caries) caused by decay or tooth damage.

Natural Appearance

These fillings are designed to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, creating a more aesthetically pleasing and discreet restoration.

Composite Resin

The filling material is made of a composite resin, which is a mixture of fine glass particles and a tooth-coloured resin. This material is bonded directly to the tooth.

Adhesive Bonding

Tooth-coloured fillings are bonded securely to the tooth’s structure, helping to strengthen and support the remaining tooth.

Minimally Invasive

The placement of tooth-coloured fillings typically involves minimal removal of tooth structure, preserving more of the natural tooth compared to silver amalgam fillings.


These fillings can be used on both front and back teeth and are suitable for repairing various levels of tooth damage.

Quick and Convenient

The placement of tooth-coloured fillings is typically completed in a single dental appointment.

Dental Aesthetics

Tooth-coloured fillings are an ideal choice for patients who prefer a discreet and natural-looking restoration.

Tooth-coloured fillings have become a popular choice for cavity repair and tooth restoration due to their cosmetic benefits, durability, and ability to blend seamlessly with the patient’s natural teeth. They offer an effective and aesthetically pleasing solution for addressing tooth decay and minor dental damage.
