Tooth-colored fillings are a type of dental restoration used to repair and treat tooth decay and damage. Used to fill in cracks, fractures, and fissures, tooth-colored fillings bond to your teeth to restore the health and function of your smile. Tooth-colored fillings are made from special resins and porcelains that can be matched to your natural tooth color. At our dental office, we use tooth-colored fillings because they are aesthetically pleasing and safer for your smile than outdated amalgam (metal) fillings.
To place a tooth-colored filling in Germantown, Tennessee, our knowledgeable dentist will:
- Clean and dry the tooth
- Apply local anesthesia if necessary
- Remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth
- Prepare the tooth to receive the filling by cleaning it again
- Place, shape, and polish the dental filling
Our skilled dental team makes sure each tooth-colored filling fits with your natural bite for optimal function and comfort. Tooth-colored filling may be suggested by Dr. Brown as part of your treatment plant to treat decayed, chipped, cracked, or worn teeth.
