How are tooth-colored fillings placed?

Once the cavity has been removed from the tooth, we begin to place the tooth colored filling material. An adhesive bonding agent is placed that creates a bonded attachment between the tooth and the filling.

Sculpting for a Natural Look

The resin is then placed and sculpted to replace the missing tooth structure. A special curing light is then used to set and harden the resin material.  After the filling is placed and set, we will adjust and fine-tune the filling so that it fits within your normal bite, and then polish everything back to a smooth shine.

The Final Look

The results are very natural and seamless and blend in with the rest of the natural tooth structure. The majority of tooth-colored fillings are virtually invisible and will last for many years.
